I believe this is a family run place and they were all hanging out in lobby and standing around and behind me talking in their native tongue which made me a little uncomfortable. The desk reception was nice though. My room was a first floor room that was not appealing. White cinder block walls and decor made me feel as... More

The staff started vacuuming at 8 am and as soon as we left our room we were greeted by staff questioning us if we were checking out.... More

This hotel is perfect for the no thrills traveler who doesn't want to sell off a kidney to stay here. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean. The bathroom very small, have to go outside to change your mind. The hotel is easy to find and perfect place for you to find anything in town. Would we stay... More

Most of the staff including those we dealt with at the front desk had a limited command of the English language which caused some difficulties. At times they came across as rude. The wi-fi worked slowly and intermittently. The pool was comfortably warm. Towels were threadbare. The AC was quite noisy but necessary to keep the room a comfortable temperature... More

Despite other reviews for this motel, we found it to be very quiet with excellent service. The room did have a humid smell but not so bad considering there is a pool in the motel. The free breakfast was continental style and was very good although the coffee tasted a wee bit weak. The location was close to everywhere we... More

We booked a pre-paid two night stay at the end of April, 2014 through Priceline. We chose this hotel because their ad said they had an indoor pool and hot tub. When we arrived we found that both the pool and hot tub were closed indefinitely for "maintenance." On checking with long term guests, the hot tub had been out-of-service... More

We stay here as often as we can when we are in minot. the staff are very nice and try to give us the best deals they can. They have a small continental breakfast thats ok. could use more variety. They do provide pet rooms so that is nice for us as we bring our pug Tucker along with us.
