Vista Inn treated me well during the 3 days I stayed there. It was quiet, the lot is big enough for a long rig to turn around and everything in my room worked just fine. The front desk folks were helpful and friendly. I will stay here again next time I'm in Fargo.

I had to make a reservation for a business trip. My plans changed and when I called to cancel the room the manager told me that I couldn't. No where on the website does it give cancelation information. He was very rude on the phone. I would never stay there in the future. Find a different hotel.

In town for the Fargo Marathon, we booked this because of the price and availability. Somewhat apprehensive due to reviews that we saw, but were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were clean and spacious enough. Bathrooms were nice, however, the towels were quite thin for bath towels. The breakfast was okay, but only toast and cereal. Rooms had microwaves and fridges, which... More

We have stayed there for a number of years for the bowling tournament down the road. Pros - it is cheap with discount for bowlers. If you like to gamble you can play blackjack in there bar area. Workers were friendly and accommodating to our early arrival. Cons - very outdated, breakfast use to be excellent there with a brunch... More

I stayed at your hotel in Fargo, ND this last weekend. Let me say that it was the second worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff is rude and not helpful at all. We needed an extra blanket and we called the front desk, they told my mother they were too busy to bring it so if she... More

The entire hotel is disgusting. The service terrible!!!! It looked ok from the photos which are all misleading. We got to our room and were upset to find no locks on the inside of the room at all - nothing to stop hotel staff from entering any time night or day. The tv was broken - knocked sideways and when...

Needed a cheap night and this one looked okay from the photos. NOT HAPPENING AGAIN!! First thing we noticed was the hotel was confusing and smelly. The doors to the hallways are unlocked, and the keys to our room could be easily duplicated due to the nature of their design. Our room smelled musty and stale. A face towel in... More

Checked trip advisor before booking two nights. No other choice most other hotels were booked. I can't see how this hotel is two and a half stars. Most reviews were on the mark. It does smell like cheap cologne and puke when you walk through the door. Very dated and not well maintained. Pool area was ok , small cold... More

We needed an inexpensive room for one night and this hotel was the least expensive I could find. We stayed in a room with a king bed and a pull out couch. The room was clean and the bathroom had a lot of counter space. The room also had a microwave and refrigerator. The bed was reasonably comfortable. It was... More

We go in and went to our room which was in the back. As soon as we drive back there we see graffiti on the walls. By this time the room is paid for... We go to our room and lock our selves in, only to wake up to glass shattering 2 hours later. Peeked out the window and obviously... More
