This was the second time our family stayed at the Residence Inn. Hotel is great and staff super friendly. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was spacious and lots of room for the 4 of us. We drove to Kirkwood mall and outlets (Kohl's, TJ Maxx) but the drive was short and everything very accessible. Pool was clean and kids enjoyed it. We have no reason to look for any other place to stay in Bismarck and will be definitely back the next time we go cross border shopping!
