“Extended Stay - In Comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We stayed at the Waconia AmericInn last June through the end of July. Excellent, conscientious and friendly staff. Well-designed, comfortable rooms. The best Breakfast room ever! Delicious, hot coffee is always available, along with herbal teas, hot chocolate, and oatmeal packs when you need some comfort munchie late at night. The reception area incorporates smaller, cozy seating areas, and access to computer & printer; there is a small book collection that guests can borrow from. Very clean, security-accessed laundry facility. Quiet surroundings and close to shopping. We enjoyed our lengthy stay while visiting family in the area.

Room Tip: This Inn has a grand staircase for those of us who want the exercise, and elevators for those who pr...

We live in the area but needed a place to stay when our A/C went out and temps were in the 90s. Our room was quite comfortable and extremely clean. Our standard room came with fridge, microwave and a REAL coffee maker (not those silly one cup coffee deals). Front desk staff was friendly and pleasant. The breakfast area had numorous options-- several kinds of cereal, oatmeal, toast, bagels, pastries, waffles, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit... the list goes on. We stayed at a 4 star hotel about a month ago at double the price-- at that hotel the internet was not free, and there was no complimentary breakfast. I would return to AmericInn Waconia any time!

We recently stayed at the AmericInn while in the area visiting friends. We had a wonderful stay! As with any AmericInn we've stayed at, the rooms are always nice & the service friendly. Our rooms were nicely sized. Loved that there is a microwave & fridge in the rooms - it really comes in handy when traveling with kids. They serve a nice breakfast in the morning with so many options - including something hot. They are constantly cleaning everything at the hotel - inside & out. The kids enjoyed the pool very much!

Next door they now have a Ground Round restaurant so it was greatly convenient.

They are dog friendly so we were able to bring our dog with us. They have a nice green area over on the side to walk your dog.

Our only disappointment was that they do not have a fitness room on property. They do have a partnership with a local Snap Fitness that you can go & use but we found that to be very inconvenient.

Very quiet hotel, great breakfast in morning. There is now a Ground Round restaurant adjacent to the parking lot that has special happy hour for hotel guests. Rooms have small refrigerator and microwave. This is a favorite stop when in the area and we rate so high because we frequent hotels with work travel! Again well done AmericInn!

I have stayed in this hotel many a night for over a year now, and not once was I received less than extremely friendly. The rooms are large (certainly by European standards) and many of them have the surprising asset of a whirlpool or even a working gas fireplace.
About the only issue at times can be the not-so-surprising popularity especially on Saturdays. Often I'm around for 2 weeks or more, and I'm usually putting in my reservation quite late.
So far, not once has the creative management not been able to find me a solution!

Breakfast is very much geared at an American palate - I'm not too much into oatmeal, waffles (but hey, freshly made by yourself - kind of cute!) and when going home often indulge in some fresh bread rolls and simple meat and cheese. But when traveling my motto is "when in Rome, drive like the Romans"; and the extention goes to eating what the locals eat.

Until the beginning of 2013, there wasn't really a bar within walking distance - now there is (bar/restaurant) and that about tops it off!

In all - I'm extremely happy with this Minnesota gem.

Room Tip: On cold winter evenenings, spend a few bucks extra and get yourself a suite with a fireplace and whi...

My sweetheart and I were in for a week to visit family. They smoke...we don't so we got a room. What a treat! Met the owner when checking in and he's such a great guy. He was actually doing yard work.

Do let that fool you. No small town stuff here. The room was great with a great bed and quiet even with the hotel full. All the normal amenities are here with incredible WiFi service.

Breakfast is a self serve buffet with a good mix of fruit, proteins, and pastries. A good selection of various coffees pleases too.

Pool and hot tub are open till midnight with invitingly warm water and clean dry towels.

Great hotel experience. Will stay again.

I highly recommend this hotel. It is among the best hotels I've ever stayed in, including those with higher priced luxury names. It is exceptionally well managed and maintained. Every detail is considered. For example, if they promise free internet, you get fast and reliable connections. If they promise free breakfast, you get an exceptional choice offered in a very clean and friendly setting. If they promise 24 hour coffee bar, you get flavorful and fresh java.

Clean, clean, clean from the parking lot, to the common facilities, to your room. Beds are comfortable and the rooms quiet. Don't overlook the Waconia AmericInn. The friendly staff really cares about guests.
