First got here it looked a little run down but, not bad, TV didn't work, no fan in bathroom, front desk person was very rude, and on her phone the whole time. This is by far the worst hotel stay I've ever had.

I wish I had known about tripadvisor before booking the room. Upon entering my room I couldn't help but notice a dank, musty odor. I then noticed that the windows open into the hall and not the outside, so I opened my window and went to the hall to see if I could open those. I could not. The odor... More

Upon entering my room I reached to turn on the switch on the table lamp, the electrical socket was hanging loose, luckily I avoided getting an electrical shock. Also, the twin light set between the beds was on the blink and could not be turned on, which the desk person ignored. I attempted to use the room telephone and consistently... More

We were displaced due to a fire that destroyed our apt. This place is nasty as well as the staff....holes in the walls, coaxial for the cable was smashed into the wall. Bathroom tub is gross, continental breakfast is just cereal.... waited for clerk to return to the front desk for 15 minutes just to re-activate our room key cards.... More

By far, this is the WORST hotel I have ever stayed at. Old is fine, but it can still be clean. My counch was stained & ripped, bed had hair in it, pillows were sweat stained! I called the front desk to request new sheets & all I was told was to "roll them up & throw them in a... More

I have stayed in cheaper hotels with friends than this one. This place had dirt and dust in all sort of places. It looks like the cleaning service never even cleaned. The bed spread smelled of (edit). The noise after 2am was louder than sleeping on a 747.

this property looks like it was once a very nice hotel. Now it is old and seems some of the space is unused. It is definitely nothing special, however decent enough for a quick stopover on a long journey. The staff was friendly, the room was clean a d adequate. It is located just off the highway, very easy to... More

I booked a block of rooms for my daughters wedding because of the location and the price of the rooms. The guests that stayed there all reported that it was dirty and run down. I do know of one couple that refused to stay there after seeing the cleanliness of the room. I realize this is an older hotel, but... More

We were laid over in Fargo because of vehicle troubles. The room was basic, rundown and very dated. We were glad to get a room. The price was low and matched what the room delivered. Breakfast was also very basic; we went elsewhere. Toast, cereal, donuts, coffee and juice. The day staff person I think was management or perhaps an... More

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.
