The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with praise going to the hotel's staff, location and rooms.

Numerous guests were pleased with the level of customer service they received during their stay, and characterized the staff as accommodating, welcoming, helpful with recommendations and friendly.

The hotel's location was praised by many reviewers, who found it to be close to highway access, the airport, the Mall of America, restaurants and shopping. One guest remarked, "We like the hotel for its central location to most anything in the downtown, airport, mall, or south Minneapolis areas". A few guests did mention there was very little within walking distance of the hotel, however.

Several lodgers complimented their accommodations at the hotel. They described their rooms as well equipped, clean, quiet and modern, with comfortable beds.

The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the pool area and the Wi-Fi.

Some reviewers were disappointed with the pool. They described it as being much smaller than the hotel's website photos indicated, and also mentioned the hot tub was in a separate area from the pool, making it difficult for adults to supervise their children when they were in the hot tub. Those in rooms located near the pool also complained of noise transfer and chlorine smells.

A few guests had complaints about the Wi-Fi, which they described as painfully slow and an inconvenience.

Thomas from Sioux Falls, SD US rated Holiday Inn Bloomington - Airport Mall of America 9 out of 10 on July 09, 2006
"The door to our room would stick. If you did not push it shut real hard it could just be pushed open. Also the hot tub did not work while we were there and the pool had some kind of film on it. My husband went in and smelled a bad smell and noticed how he was coated with some type of film. We left the pool area and went back to our room. We only stayed two nights but sorry to say were not impressed at all. Also the hotel charged our credit card on top of the on line service that charged us. It took several phone calls to get to the right person to get this charge off our credit card. Finally on my last call (three weeks later) the book keeper (who apologized for our inconvenience)stated she never received the message and immediately took the charge off. She gave my very prompt attention which was definately appreciated so that I would not get a finance charge for not paying the card off because of the charge."
