I stayed on business and was just looking for a basic room, although speaking to general manager whose who noticed I was one of their rewards members and asked a few questions about upgrades they were considering. It was obvious they were aiming to please and I'll be staying there again!!

Great location right off the interstate and friendly service (fast check in and an excellent restaurant recommendation). The room was clean, simply decorated, well insulated (not a minor consideration in North Dakota), and the lighting was excellent. The breakfast was commensurate with the price (nothing fancy). The price was very reasonable. The hotel got an award for good service in... More

Location: We had room 121. It was a great stay for the price. Not fancy, but fine. Breakfast: Breakfast starts at 5AM, which was great for us as we were leaving very early. Stay again? Yes, but if staying for more than one night I might look elsewhere.

I was traveling to Minnesota and need a place to crash for the night. The desk clerk at 1am was pleasant and upbeat I can't say enough about how nice she was! The bed was super comfy, since that's all I was there for it was a welcome surprise. The room itself was a little run down but nothing that... More

We apologize for the issues you had during your stay. There is good news though. Much of what was wrong is being addressed this winter. We will be doing a major renovation which will include tripling the size of the breakfast area, changing out all our double beds for queens, and any of the tired queens for new ones. Much... More

Thank you for staying with us and we are glad that and your dog had a nice stay. We ourselves are dog lovers. We are looking at two options for our two end doors.

We stayed for one night on Sat Oct 12, 2014. The price was very reasonable although someone forgot to vacuum our carpets.
