Not clean. Would not stay again. Carpet had not been vacuumed for many stays. Filthy. Bathroom had two dead bugs. One bed appeared to have been used. Went over for breakfast and apparently manager came out all disheveled stretching and appearing to have just crawled out of bed. Could not eat there. Coffee was good. Price should have provided a...

Stayed at the tip top for work and I'm glad I chose it! The staff is cool, when I got off a long day of work the beds were made and there was a fresh thing of towels ! Staff always made sure if there was something we needed it was taken care of. I'll defiantly tell more people to... More

We spent the night there because my husband to collect this state had to sleep in North Dakota. Under new management, Mary and her husband were very friendly. Comfortable bed, quiet room, great tv reception. Don't expect the Hilton or LaQuinta, but a nice old timey motel. Eat at the steakhouse, steaks delicious. Best wishes to Mary and her husband!

Door inside and also on the outer side. Huge room. Had a chair and ottoman in there, too! A desk/chair. Good wifi. Tub, fridge, micro. Cute place, nice person at the desk. There were a few flies, not sure where they came from. The furnishings were a little nicer than we'd expect for a room in the middle of nowhere... More

I stayed here two nights, a Friday and Saturday night, for a total of $141.02. The motel is very easy to find, has plenty of parking space, was very clean, and there were multiple choices for the Tip Top Guests high speed Internet WiFi which I found to be the BEST aspect of this motel. The hot water is definitely... More

During a trip west in April, 2014, I had the pleasure of staying at the Tip Top Motel. The experience was excellent. From check in to check out, the service and was superior, and accommodations clean and comfortable. From what I understand, the motel is under new management, and I extend my appreciation and respect to the owner on his... More

Well they now have new general managers and it shows. When I walked in the office it looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in a couple weeks, there... More

I was in Hettinger for 6 days due to an accident on a nearby highway... I stayed at the Tip Top Motel. The staff is incredibly friendly, patient and willing to work with you especially if you need extended paperwork. Tip Top Motel has one of the fastest Internet speeds I've experienced from a hotel, clocking in consistently between 24-36... More

I have to travel to Hettinger 3 or 4 times a year. I always stay at the Tip Top. The hotel is nothing special but it is always clean and seems to be well maintained. The beds are comfortable, the tv's are old tube type but the picture quality is good. I do have to give them credit for the... More
