My hosts at St. Olaf College booked my stay here, so I didn't shop around. After reading unenthusiastic reviews and the anecdotal report of a colleague who had no hot water during their stay, my expectations were not high! But I experienced no major problems. It's not a quiet location - trains on one side, a busy roadway with lots of large truck traffic on the other. So if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs or some way to block noise. The room was quite basic - tiny old TV, chipped sink, no blanket on the bed (just the stiff quilted "motel basic" bedspread). But I did have plenty of hot water, the bathroom amenities were fine, the hair dryer worked, and the bed was reasonably comfortable. The front desk staff were competent and pleasant. And the location allowed easy walking access to St. Olaf as well as downtown restaurants. So not a good choice for a getaway, but fine for a business trip in which you won't spend much time in your room anyway. The price was also quite reasonable.
