We enjoyed a lovely May long wknd here in Grand Forks, were received very pleasantly by the front desk lady Friday evening and again, great service from the young guy who worked late night, as well as the cleaning staff. But we have to say, the crusty older "gentleman" left a sour taste in our mouths about ever coming back... More

The room was okay. Could have been updated a bit. The hallway floors are caving in and the outside needs alot of work. The worse part is the guy at the front desk.... He will be the reason I would never stay there again. Unbelievably rude!

Have stayed here several times over the years. Its more a motel and not a B&B. The place is a good value and conveniently located in the city on 32nd ave. The place is rather old but very clean. It is rather cheaply decorated--but if you don't spend much time in your room--who cares? They have a lot of Canadian... More

The price is reasonable for this Canadian Shopper and the place is clean and quite. I like that I can see my car from my room. They accept coupon that you can print directly from their website. Hugo Supermarket and CVS is within walking distance if you need to buy something. Also, they have cookies and coffee available at the... More

That is all we paid to stay in Grand Forks during a recent shopping trip. Just two minutes south of Columbia Mall, Walmart, Kohl's, and all the rest of the shopping strip that is 32nd Avenue. Room 142 had two queen beds (mine had one of those vibrating things ). I must say I enjoyed that after a long day... More

It's taken me awhile to write this review but it needed to be written. Happy Host is economical, but you will give up friendly service and clean rooms if you go there. Although the beds were comfortable, you could see crumbs from the previous visitors. There was mold growing on the tub walls and it just felt icky. The outside... More

Stayed at the happy host and it was just barely ok. Place needs big time work on the outside but the inside can pass. Had microwave and fridge. Room seemed clean lots of cable stations. Just the bare bones, room kind of smelt and breakfast toast and coffee. Lady that checked us very nice the guy at the desk not... More

We have been staying at the Happy Host for many years. Yes it is old but the rooms are clean and there are no stairs except to go down to the breakfast room Food is plentiful and diverse. There is also coffee and cookies in the lobby at all times. Great location on the 32nd Ave strip.

We went there a few years ago, and decided to try it again. Hasn't changed on the outside - it definitely needs a paint job or new siding ... but the inside is updated, clean and comfortable. The price is right. They have quite a choice for breakfast and it is all free. Will certainly stay there again. I liked... More

I have stayed here many times and will continue to stay here when I come to Grand Forks. There is nothing wrong with this place - rooms are clean and have fridge, microwave, free breakfast and even wi-fi, which has always functioned perfectly. It's close to all the shopping, grocery stores, bank, etc. TV works, alarm clock works, water's hot... More
