If you are looking for an room that is inexpensive and has a good bed, plumbing that works, a functioning TV, refrigerator and microwave, this is a good place. I have paid more for motel beds that were not as good.
The Snelling is not updated, new or fancy, but is quite functional.

I booked a single night at this motel through Expedia to have a place to stay while my bathtub was being replaced. The construction co. cancelled the job the morning of because of a broken down truck, and I tried to cancel my booking with the Snelling. They said they would be happy to, but Expedia would charge them a fee so I would have to go through Expedia. After an hour I finally found the customer service number for Expedia. They said they would be happy to cancel without penalty but would have to OK it with the hotel. I was put on hold then they came back and said the hotel refused and I would have to pay the full amount as a penalty. So I never stayed at the Snelling, and guess what? I never shall. Do you blame me?

We were forced to stay the night in Minneapolis due to a mechanical error and were so lucky to find a room available here. It is only seven minutes to the airport and is run by the kindest man in town. He cheerfully welcomed us after midnight and cheerfully drove us to the airport at 5am the next morning, no charge, just out of the goodness of his big heart. The room was comfortable and clean. The service was superb!

Room was clean. Improvements on the hotel were obvious. Close to the light rail station to head downtown. The shower was warm. The only complaint I have is its off the beaten path and no food options.

We couldn't be happier that we found this gem!! It's right on the train route so we stay there for games, concerts, any event. The rooms are clean and recently renovated. The owners are absolutely amazing and we feel like we're home whenever we stay. We'll never stay anywhere else!!!!!!!
