The hotel has been totally remodeled and looks fantastic. Wifi is fast and they have the best breakfast you can imagine.. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly! Thanks for the great stay! I'll...

I originally booked for a Friday and Saturday. The site I booked through said if a cancellation was needed, it had to be done by 6 p.m. the day before the first night's stay. As it turned out, I needed to cancel the first night's stay, but didn't find that out until 4 p.m. on check-in day. They did allow... More

Needed to conduct business while in fargo but was unable to do so as the wifi connection was non-existent. I tried to get online with 2 different smart phones, a tablet and a laptop an I could not connect. I went to a coffee shop downtown and connected just fine.

We spent a weekend at the HoJo Fargo 2/12/15 - 2/15/15. It was the hotel for my son's hockey team, we were there for a big hockey tournament. I think it's always nerve racking to pick hotels for this type of thing. We wanted the option to be affordable to families but a good pool is a must have. The... More

The suite, room 170, is outdated with broken down furniture, few decorations and poor heating. The furniture is old with the back of the dresser broken out and the center of all dressers and counters bent as if too much weight were placed on it. The wall with the couch had no decorations just black streaks. The office chair was... More

YessiG411, Please accept my sincere apologies. After reading your commentary, I met with my Housekeeping and Maintenance Department Managers to share your feedback. We developed an improved inspection process that includes a maintenance component that all components are properly addressed before renting the room. It was great to read that you enjoyed our downtown location. We are indeed within walking... More

Please provide receptacles for disposing cigarette butts near the entrances. This would certainly reduce the cleanup time for your staff and make smokers feel better about not having thrown butts on the ground.
