For starters, at check in, we were expected to pay for parking for the 2 days of our stay. This was never listed on the site when we booked this hotel. We were able to get this waived after griping enough to the manager. This would have been a nice automatic gesture given the fact that the corona virus caused the pool, hot tub and the breakfast buffet to all be closed. Then, when we got to our room, the A/C did not seem to be working as the room temp never changed despite turning the thermostat down to 60. I opened the curtains hoping to get a nice view of St. Paul only to see a brown steel wall 3 feet outside of our window blocking all views. Wouldn't you put your guests in the nicer rooms when your hotel is only at a fraction of capacity(only about 5 cars in the parking lot) We will find a different hotel on our repeat visits to the area to watch our son play college football.
