More than adequate for an affordable overnite stay. Room was clean and had a fridge and micro. I-94 was an easy on/off. one mile walk/drive to a couple of restaurants in Beach. Nothing fancy but would stay again and would recommend to others.

Good price. Comfortable bed. Not too noisy. Room was clean. Shower is very small, not for tall people. Thought there was a Continental breakfast but it was just toast, juice and coffee, which is fine given the $60 per night price. Eat before you get to this desolate area. ;)

This motel is old all around. We stopped here after a 24 hour road trip for a cat nap. The price was cheap. Everything is clean but old, I never felt like I could sleep on the bed just old and out dated. This was Like a hotel my grandparents use to stay in....lol, but was very clean. I would... More

I have stayed here several times and have always found it to be a nice clean bed, bathroom & room. Its comfortable & quiet and the people there have been helpful & pleasant. Never have I found any "bugs"...The lady that is sometime at the desk wears her years on her face as a badge of honor not that she's... More

Stayed here again in Dec 2014 (I have written 1 or more reviews on this location). The place has the very basic's but is clean, quiet and the heat works. That is all I need. There has always been enough room for my rig, but if not there is the Flying J a block away and a rest area next... More

How could I have a great memory from this simple motel in Beach ND? First of all, let me agree with the other reviewers that this is a simple place but a good right-priced roof over your head when you're on the road. The town itself is quite nice, but it's not where you go to party. There's decent food... More

This is not a fancy place, but clean and basic.There are a lot of workers staying there who, I imagine, have to get up early to go to work, so on the night we stayed it was very quiet, although I don't know about the weekends. The rooms are older, but clean with all the basic things one needs for... More

Without question The Buckboard is not a 5 star hotel. But in rural, middle of nowhere North Dakota what more do you really expect? It's an older motel with small rooms and incredibly dated furnishings. I imagine that some hipster someplace would love the western decor and the bronze pull string lights hanging from the ceiling. Maybe. I don't know...... More
