I live in Bismarck & have lived here for the past 25 years. My recommendation is you DO NOT stay at this motel. Lot of shady things go on there, bad neighborhood. I don't know what the room charge is but PLEASE spend a few more $ & find a different motel to stay in. This motel is basically for... More

I can't believe the city allows this place to run. It should be removed for internet listing. The pictures on the site look nothing like real deal. This is not fit for anyone to stay at. Most of the people their live there. One feels very uncomfortable on the premises. What ever you do don't stay there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We called to see if they had any openings. Pulled in the parking lot, I wouldn't even leave our car there. Went inside, looked around, and that was enough. Told them who we were and cancelled. Well worth and extra $10 - $20 to stay some place else.

It depends on what room you stay in. They have had law suits because they actually put wall paper over the black mold. The carpets aren't very clean. Better keep your shoes on!

We all got sick and a family took us in and housed six of us because we couldn't stay there! We all got Bronchitis and 2 people had major asthma attacks! The mold could be seen on the walls. The only reason this place is in business is because of the oil boom up north and there aren't enough hotel... More
