First of all, the desk clerk "Jody" was fabulous. She was very friendly and enthusiastic, and we had a nice chat with her. From observing her interacting with other customers, she seems to be well-loved and we could see why.
The room was functional, and the bed much more comfortable than I expected for such a utilitarian-type place.
The room was generally clean, and my sole complaint was that the cloth shower curtain smelled stale and needed a good washing with bleach. In such a humid climate they should use plastic shower curtains.
This place wasn't listed in the "airport" neighborhood, but it was a mere 7 minutes drive from MSP and $35 cheaper than anything we found that was actually called an "airport hotel".
