First time to Fargo ND. This hotel was great. Front desk staff very easy to get along with. Room was in great shape. Free breakfast downstairs. If your looking for a affordable stay and clean pick this hotel.

Thank you Jerry for staying with us while in Fargo. We are actually working on making our breakfast even better than it currently is. Also, when the upstairs remodeling is done, all of our current rooms will be getting a face lift. New paint, new sinks and toilets and brand new digital HVAC units that are slightly larger. We hope... More

Had never stayed here before, but will stay again when in Fargo, close to shopping, food etc. room was clean, up to date, would recommend, price was very reasonable 64 us a night, staff was very friendly, only negative, they were renovating so was a bit noisy, during day, the noise did not affect our stay at all.

We visited here on Easter weekend. We got in at 4 am on easter, both of our rooms were still available. The front desk was a sweet young lady named Holly who befriended us over our day and a half long stay. Everyone we met there was extremely hospitable and it was only about 60 a night for both rooms... More

Thank you for staying with us. We enjoyed having you here and I will make sure to let Holly see your review. We try to treat all of our guests in the same way you were treated. This is an advantage of being at a smaller hotel where we actually have the time to talk to our guests and listen... More

The room was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the price was very reasonable. I would go there again if I'm going that way..The continental breakfast was adequate, enough to get you on the road and on your way without having to stop elsewhere.

Thank you for staying with us. We are working on adding options to our breakfast once we get done with our remodeling. Not only will we have about 20 more rooms, but we are looking at options such as fresh cooked eggs however the guest wants them cooked. These are just some of the ideas we are tossing around right...

Staff is very nice, just not sure if there is a maintenance crew or not. Our shower barely drains, and the rooms temperature is controlled by a wall unit. You have no real choice as to what temperature it will be, aside from ice cold and Mojave hot. This motel has also followed the trend of giving half pillows, which... More

We apologize for any issues you had while staying with us. Actually we are in the middle of a search for a maint. worker. For now I will be handling it all to make sure it gets done right. I was unaware of the issues with your room or I would have done my best to fix them. As for... More

Thank you for staying with us while you were in Fargo. We are currently going through a remodel and actually hope to improve our breakfast with the possibility of some fresh cooked items. New paint, upgraded bathrooms also will help the rooms to look even better. Have a great day and hope to see you again. More

We stayed here a few years ago and the place was immaculate. The fellow that checked us in at that time was very courteous and professional. This time we arrived at 1:40 and the woman at the front desk proceeded to tell us that there had been 21 checkouts that morning and that only half her rooms were cleaned and... More

Stayed there for one night February 27th. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. The only real problem I had with the room was that the shower heads are very low. I am 5'10 and the shower head is at my shoulders, so had to duck to get the hair wet. Had a couple of minor issues with... More

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry about the shower head.

We are going to be putting the "giraffe" style in all the rooms. We are... More

Great room for my needs for two nights. I was able to stream a live sporting event over the wifi which was nice. Heating unit was noisy and manager/front desk offered to replace but I was ok with it because I just cranked the heat while I was gone and the room stayed warm enough for me without it running...
