No frills, decent lodging
Being an annual visitor to the Minnesota State Fair, I find the Midway Motel to be a rather convenient little bivouac for my visits there. After all, it's but four blocks' walk to the State Fairgrounds; you get some exercise in the baragin.
As if that weren't enough, it's across from Hamline University, and (thanks to its being on a city bus line) within minutes of @ least three shopping centres and plenty of restaurants.
Complimentary coffee in the mornings, rooms on two levels, halfway-decent rooms as are pretty much good value for the money--what more could you expect, during the State Fair or otherwise?
Unique Quality: During the State Fair (12 days ending Labour Day), you can see the fireworks display from the balcony ... not to mention being able to view Hamline University's home football games from the same vantage point.
Directions: Across from Hamline University, a short walk from the State Fairgrounds--and right there @ the Pierce Butler Route exit off Snelling Avenue.
