I really enjoyed my stay at the Faculty House -- the house itself is gorgeous, and you can't beat the proximity to the university. It IS on frat row, however...this was not really a problem for my summer stay, but I do wonder what the party situation is like during the year. Anyway, though. Great amenities -- the cable TV, high-speed wireless Internet, clean bathrooms, hot showers, and the laundry facilities were all much appreciated and really made me feel at home. The kitchen and continental breakfast were sufficient for my needs (toast, cereal and tea), but I ended up purchasing my own orange juice since I'm not a pulp fan. I found the kitchen to be well-stocked in nearly every way -- but they really need to invest in some more coffee mugs and juice glasses! It always felt like a bit of a scavenger hunt to find clean ones in the morning. All in all though, this was a very comfortable place for an extended stay in Minneapolis.

If B&Bs were bouquets, some would be expensive and modern with lots of exotics; some would be tacky dusty silk Victorian roses, and the Faculty House would be a common houseplant.
David, the manager, was very friendly and did a great job of offering travel advice before I arrived, plus giving me some yogurt and a granola bar when i got there at 11 pm having missed dinner.
But the special touches stopped there. The setup is just weird - you walk in and the place seems pretty drab. The building is older. There's a slight smell of mildew in the upstairs hall and the shower has that sulphuric rotten-egg odor.
The place is decorated for the non-picky male. There is not one frill in the entire place. There is no shampoo or conditioner (let alone bar soap or lotion) in the bathroom or in the room, so you better bring your own. There are no mirrors in the room, so plan to brush your hair and put on makeup in the communal bathroom. The doors are flimsy with push-button locks (bathrooms have sliding doors). The bedspread was clean but wrinkled right out of the dryer. They don't even have a subscription to a newspaper.
Breakfast is totally do-it-yourself... go into the kitchen and forage for food in the fridge, it's not very clearly marked what you're allowed to take or not take. I started each morning with half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because it seemed the safest bet, although there was cereal and juice. Mind you, I made this sandwich myself. Your mother is not here.. that's why you must put your own dishes in the dishwasher when you are through.
That being said, the towels were fluffy and clean and new, everything seemed pretty clean, walls were recently painted. The AC works well. The bed was comfortable. The decor was... ugh. Mostly brown stuff.
If this is the only place left near campus, and you are not a high-maintenance person in any way, and you're used to traveling on a budget, such as staying in roadside motels, you'll be fine with it, as I was. If not, you should rent a car and stay at a place that's less convenient - you will be much more comfortable.

I stayed at Faculty House for 2 weeks while studying at the university and it was perfect for what I needed during that time. The owner is very nice and most people there are focused on research or study of some kind. It's nice to come in the front door and see some people studying in the dining room because it prevents procrastination. My room was cute and comfortable and felt like home by the time I left. The only cons were the key situation--there isn't always a staff member around, so if you lock yourself out, you might be out for a while (one guest was out overnight when I was there, poor thing)-- and a couple things about the kitchen. I cooked when I was there to save money, and some of the pans were sticky and just didn't feel clean. And there are not enough knives for chopping and other utensils for food preparation. I almost felt like sending them a set of flatware when I got home because it would be so nice to have there. The breakfast is great, though I would have loved stronger coffee. Can't complain, though, really. It was a great place and I would absolutely stay there again if I were to end up in Minneapolis. I stayed on the floor with a shared bathroom (one for just women, one unisex) and that was absolutely fine. I highly recommend this little Dinkytown gem!
