I think most of you know that until recently, we lived in Minnesota. We loved our little town and everyone was thrilled when Grandstay decided to open a hotel in town. Not only was that convenient for friends and family that come to visit but they also had an indoor pool that everyone was thrilled with!
My kids and I spent a weekend there just enjoying the quiet space, pool and breakfast in the morning (love not having to get up and cook). I wanted to share a little about our stay so if you’re looking for a hotel option close to Minneapolis, you can check this out!
Our room was a spacious suite that had a separate bedroom from the living area. The beds were some of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept on with oh so soft pillows and bedding. I took the room for myself and the boys slept on the pull out in the living area.
We both had our own TV’s so that we could watch what we wanted. We’ve found that this is a MUST when traveling, I get pretty sick of cartoons quickly and I like to stay up watching TV later than my boys are allowed to stay up.
There was a slow a kitchenette in the room that’s complete with a fridge, microwave, sink, table, etc. We ended up ordering pizza in so it was perfect! We didn’t have to eat in bed and make a mess. We love getting rooms with kitchen areas when we travel so we can take our drinks and snacks along with us.

Of course my kids favorite part of the stay was the pool. We spend hours playing and relaxing at the pool & hot tub. It was pretty quiet while we were there so they had the pool to themselves for a lot of the time.
