Pros:.Nice large indoor hot tub, outdoor pool and picnic area. Friendly staff.

Cons:
VERY outdated. Mattresses need replacement. One elevator was out of order. Bathroom was not clean. Stains by tub and toilet.

We have stayed here twice. Very friendly staff. Rooms are not fancy but clean. Only thing I would suggest is that they invest in new towels as the ones they have are rough and discolored looking. Great location to the mall and restaurants.

This hotel is close to the Civic Center and Kirkwood Mall. Several restaurants nearby. The prices for hotels in Bismarck have gone up in price due to the oil field workers coming into town on the weekends. Even Motel 6 is close to $75 per night. Crazy. The hotel breakfast was the standard fair of pastries, cereals, waffles, muffins. Nice exercise room and indoor pool. The parking lot is small and there's construction all around this area.

The hotel room almost paid for itself in lieu of airport parking charges. They offer airport shuttle which is a very nice plus. We have stayed there several times and the rooms are very clean and quiet.

Good rates, clean, but needs lots of work. AC/heat unit very noisy. Had to turn off. Luckily the weather was not hot/cold or would have been miserable. Staff advised the hotel is being upgraded in 2014. Stay away until then. If you like Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton, or Holiday Inn Express go to these places instead. This is more of a 'value hotel'.

I am giving this hotel just an average review. Excellent location as it is across the street from Kirkwood Mall. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. Room was clean but the towels were old, grey and thin. There is no excuse to not have good quality towels. Our friend's shower would not drain properly. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok but I was disappointed that all three cereals were sugar coated.
