Located about 30 miles from the Minneapolis/St Paul Airport, the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites attracts families traveling through this part of Minnesota. Family rooms come configured with double, queen or king size beds, and cribs are available on request. With separate sleeping and living areas, the rooms allow the added privacy that you really appreciate when traveling as a group. Start your morning off with the free buffet breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant. And make time for a workout in the onsite fitness center or, during the summer months, take a dip in the outdoor pool.
There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. And farther afield you’ll find water parks, shopping, nature trails and parks to explore. There are many lakes in the area, too, where you can take the family on fishing tours or participate in the various water sports offerings.

Fantastic experience! We wanted a fun night with our kids, spouses and 9 grandkids (ages 1 to 11) and this was the perfect place! We had great time in the water park, had pizza and other food right at our table in the pool area so the kids could eat and head back to the fun. All the cousins slept in various rooms which made it extra fun for them. In the morning there was a delicious buffet where all the kids ate free!
The best part was 2 months before this took place. My wife and I drove over to the hotel and spoke with Ashley about what we wanted to do. She worked with us about an hour, showing us rooms, showing us the water park and even working with us to figure out which cousin should sleep in which room. I was so amazed that she cared enough to help us to this extent! She was cheerful, caring, funny and so accommodating! If I was Holiday Inn, I would immediately promote her to corporate training...she was the best!
I travel to MN frequently for work and it’s now one less thing I need to do is determine where I stay when visiting. The IHG property is centrally located and its surrounded by convenience of other services (food, gas, etc.), the staff is always friendly and accommodating and the rooms are clean and quiet after a long day.
