This property has gone downhill the last six months. Lobby air conditioning doesn't work and half the drains barely drain and you end up standing in water. The last month their laundry facilities haven't worked and wherever they send them to, they come back rough and stinky

I was on a road trip - wanted to stop in Fargo for a night and stay somewhere affordable and within walking distance of the downtown. This place did the trick. Very basic room, pretty clean - nothing special, but I've stayed plenty of places that were worse. The key is that it is a relatively short walk down to... More

Stayed here for one night passing thru town. Very old hotel, room and hallway was very musty smelling and all furniture and fixtures felt like they were straight out of the 60's. Beds were somewhat comfortable surprisingly.

Stayed on the second floor/non smoking/2 queens. Beds were comfortable and we had a nice quiet stay. Pretty basic room and nothing fancy and did not have a view except for a back lane. Breakfast was only on from 6-9 and in the restaurant only....didn't make it on time.
