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

The staff were friendly and made you feel welcomed. Rooms and hotel were clean and comfortable. Nice free Continental Breakfast in mornings with a nice selection of breakfast items. Great location and price. Nice all the way around.

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

I apologize for the service issues. As for outside the window I believe that is actually from dogs at the hotel next to us and I will talk with them about that. Our guests with dogs use the front and by the signs. We are doing our best to keep the excess in the dumpster as we are doing a... 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 have now started our remodeling upstairs, and as soon as they get to the current rooms one of the things I want fixed in any of our rooms are the lower shower heads. 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...

Thanks for staying with us over the weekend. Glad to hear you were able to watch your games. Hope the team you were cheering for won :) We will be replacing all of the HVAC units in the next month or two with new and slightly larger units, so no more of these issues will happen. Have a great day... More

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

Thank you for staying with us. We do our best to keep this place as clean as possible given the age of it. We are going to be starting a remodeling in the month of February which will include repairing all the nicks in walls and repainting them. We are also putting in all new sinks and water efficient toilets.... More
