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

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

I have stayed at the Happy Host twice now in the past 6 months. It is definitely one of the older motels in Grand Forks, so I was a little apprehensive but the price was right for this Canadian shopper. The room was clean both times, no problem with outside noise, the windows open for fresh air, fridge and microwave,... More

I have been staying here for quite a few years when ever I come to Grand Forks. Great breakfast and always have coffee(or tea, hot cholate,etc)in lobby all the time. Rooms have fridge and microwave and are clean and comfortable. It is close to the mall,wal-mart,etc. Just a great place to stay.

Love staying here-always rooms available, great price and always accept a coupon. Kids love the cookies in the lobby and it is owner operated and they always make you feel welcome. Motel is older, but they keep it clean and it is in a great location so close to the mall and paradisio!

We have been going to the USA for about 10 years now and our first stop is mostly in Grand Forks North Dakota at the Happy Host Inn mainly because the price was right and after 9 stays the 10th is free. This Inn is not much to look at from the outside but rooms are clean and have microwave,... More

Carpets stained all over the place, bed sheets you could see through them, yellow staining, fridge falling apart. No decor. It's just awful. Would never recommend this. It's bad. Picture they have of room is bogus. It's just crap. Beds were awful!!!
