3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was clean and cheap. It was not amazing, nor would I want to stay there more than a night. But for a place to stay while passing through on a longer road trip, it was fine. The points that weren't great: place was a bit worn, room was SUPER humid and hot on arrival (A/C was left off),... More

The fridge was not cleaned out from previous day. Too few convenient plug-ins. I needed to crawl under the desk thing to plug in my kindle; other plug-in was full. Good central location. Nice breakfast but a very small area; probably would not have enough room during a busy season!

My friend and I were traveling to the women's World Cup and needed a place to sleep for the night before. We booked ahead of time here because it was cheap and off the highway. So, that's one positive I would give this hotel, it's location is great if you just want to get off the highway and be at... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is just off the freeway yet it is very quiet. Very reasonable rate. My room was large with a queen bed, fridge, microwave, easy chair with ottoman and desk. Nice flat screen TV also. Bathroom was clean and stocked. Comfortable bed and pillows. Only complaint was the desk chair not being comfortable and... More

Chris and Patti are both excellent hosts, friendly, and made me feel very comfortable staying at this Econo-Lodge,Fargo location and I will most definitely stay here on future trips to North Dakota. Great location and close to several eating places and easy access to both I94 and I29. West Acres Mall about a mile away.

We just left a hotel, paying $150+ per night. We needed a place to stop and sleep for a while. We weren't looking for amenities, just a good night's sleep. We got that. Rooms were clean and quiet, and the beds were comfortable. We slept well.

We have stayed at this Econo Lodge several times over the years and always have a nice stay. The rooms are being updated and the staff is very friendly and helpful. i would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an inexpensive but well maintained place to stay when traveling to the Fargo area.

Thank you for staying here. We appreciate the compliments, although we do know there are many things we need to, and are in the process of updating. The remodeling process we are going through right now has been long and frustrating at times. We look forward to completing it and having a much better hotel. Have a great day. Chris... More

Thank you for staying with us. I apologize for the bathroom issues. We did find out our chemicals for the glass are actually leaving spots and stuff. We are switching to a water vinegar mixture which will not leave those marks. As for the smoking out front, we only have one front desk staff at any given time here, and... More

When we checked in there was poop left in the toilet from someone else. Everything is disgustingly sticky to the touch (doors, lights, curtains, tables, etc.) Ironing board looked as though someone got blood all over it, the floor had gross sticky spots, the walls had streaks running down them that looked like someone had explosive diarrhea in the room....

We are sorry for your experience at our hotel. I do have to say that all of our rooms are inspected when they are done being cleaned, and I also personally inspected the room after receiving this complaint. Given what was in the complaint, my staff would have contacted me immediately had you come to the front desk and brought... More

The motel appeared to have had updates in carpets, nice flat TV, and very good shower and safety bars. The breakfast area is rather small, but they had a very nice choice of breakfast options. It was also very quiet and this was a Sat. night. The weekend rate was also very reasonable for Fargo, ND.

Thank you for staying with us while in Fargo. As for our breakfast area, when the remodeling is done it will be 3 times as large as it is now, plus we are looking at adding additional items since we will have more counter space to work with. Plus the possibility of items for sale at night to cook such... More
