Everything was as expected for a cheap motel room ($55). The front desk lady was a grump which was the most negative part of my stay. Cheer up motel employees! I've been there! Being helpful goes a long way.

We apologize for the grumpiness. Finding good help can be tough at times, which means management working even when they should be at home getting better. We take a very hands on approach as a management team. As for the hotel, we have just started to do our winter remodeling, which when complete I am sure you will find this... More

Clean, comfortable, very friendly and accommodating staff, continental breakfast provided. Amenities included iron and ironing board, refrigerator, tv with many cable channels and wi-fi. Very reasonable price. We were very pleased! There are opportunities for improvement--the air is a little too dry for comfort, and the breakfast eggs were rubbery. Overall, excellent value for the price!

This is a nice place to stay. Close to NDSU. The halls are clean and well-lit and the rooms were also VERY clean. Not everything is brand new--- there is paint chipping here and there, loose toilet handle- but the carpet and bedding was clean. Fridge, TV, wi-fi, and heater all worked well. Front desk staff is exceptional! In spite... More

This probably should be 4.5 stars if I could. Very good value in Fargo. Hotel was clean and up to snuff. It seemed quiet to me, though I'm also a heavy sleeper. TV was older-style, if I remember correctly, but it worked fine. It was within walking distance of a grocery store and gas station. It was also convenient to... More

Thank you for staying and we are happy you had a pleasant stay. I wish there was something we could do about the shower heights. When we do our remodeling and add the 21 rooms we can ask them to place the shower heads a little higher depending on where the plumbing is set in the wall. We look forward... More

When we arrived the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was surprised to enter the hotel room and find a refrigerator, microwave and a TV. The only downsides were that it doesn't look like they do their laundry. The sheets were covered in hair and the comforters were dirty. Also the towels in the bathroom looked used, like they...

Ali, thank you for staying here. We apologize for any hair that may have been on the beds. This is something we have been addressing and now with a better housekeeping staff in place should no longer be a problem. As for our towels, they do get used over and over and the down side of white terry is that... More
