Where to stay in Bloomington

Most of the accommodations in Bloomington lie along Interstate 494 with easy access to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The Mall of America lies just south of the airport, so most of the hotels around the airport provide convenient access to the mall as well. Consider staying in one of the hotels on Killebrew Drive, which serves as the mall's southern border, to get away from the interstate.

  • Great atmosphere. You won't find any where near here that's not only free but beautiful.
  • So random and weird!! I went here with my girlfriend on the weekend. There was almost no one around and it was beautiful and quiet. Well worth the stop.
  • It's beautiful and well cared for. I'm not sure what they do to keep the grass so perfect but they do. The entire garden is peaceful. The water is nice to sit by and the fish are fairly attracted to people. It's not a game corner nor is it a place to play. It's a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
  • Really hard to find. Located somewhere behind college campus. There are signs but not sure where it was and decided I didn't want to walk around the campus to find it.
  • Very cool, haven't seen such a beautiful Japanese garden since we were in Montreal
