There were hairs on the pillows, the bed was ridiculously horrible (thin, bumpy, tiny, and gross). We... More

If you want a receipt for your hotel stay, make sure to get one before you leave! Called three times and Margarette promised that she'd email me a receipt and I still haven't seen it.

Over priced like everything in Williston, Small small rooms no updates, duct tape holds the A/C window closed, did not receive maid service. Worst shower ever, the water smells really bad. This is a bunk house not a motel.

This property does NOT even do that..A room with plugs in it with a tv in 1 and ac in the other and the building wi-fi... More

My wife and I have traveled the globe, that being said, we have stayed in some pretty unbelievable acommodations. In Papua New Guinea for instance, the hogs living under the bamboo floor of our room, would shriek when the rats bit them during the night. The Grand View Hotel in Williston, North Dakota usurped this as the VERY worst place... More

I found it to be quite. The staff, especially Margaret to be nice and friendly. Even made an unexpected friend. The rooms are like your own little studio apartment. Room service everyday. I was not disappointed.
