“its good to be back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It's good to back at this hotel, this property is centrally located so its very easy to reach wherever you wanted to go in fargo, the pool was great for a young family and great for adults too being said that i was a bit disappointing at how the staff treated my complain about the cleanliness of our room, the cleaning staff did not dust our room as you can write your name on the table and the heat register the floor was dirty and was nor vacuumed for the 3 days we stayed in our room.
We let the front desk know of our problem and they made us feel that they are going to do something about it but did not.However don't let a bit of dust bother you this hotel is still a good place to stay.

Room Tip: if you a bit of privacy with a child stay at 619 its a good location close to all what you need in a...

I stayed five nights at this property while participating in a Sons of Norway convention. Fargo is known for its large faction of Norwegian-American descendants and boasts of a lodge with over 1300 active members. This group has a building where they serve hearty meals each day, if you are looking for a unique slice of the upper Midwest. A full bar is available. Ask for directions to the Kringen Lodge.

The hotel's lobby and business areas were bright and spacious. Staff made check-in a quick process. They assigned us a suite which had comforts of home such as a microwave, a refrigerator, single-cup coffee maker, a dining or work table, a large couch and side chair. A flat screen TV added to the amenities. Free wireless internet service is available.Lighting was adequate.

The beds were spacious and comfortable. Numerous pillows enhanced sleeping comfort. Our room faced the street, but it was very quiet.

It may be advisable for the hotel to add more elevators for the use by the convention guests. Additional trolleys for luggage would also be helpful.

The only real concern at this establishment was the ill-prepared morning waitstaff and kitchen chefs. Breakfast did not run smoothly. I would plan to arrive very early, if you are interested in completing your breakfast before an important meeting.

Room Tip: Choose a lower floor, due to the packed elevators.

North Dakota was a state that we needed to visit so we could cross it off our bucket list. We decided to stay in Fargo before heading back home. The hotel we had originally planned to stay in was full, so we chose the Ramada Plaza Suites. We were not disappointed. The rooms are very large. Ours had a separate room for the beds, which made it nice for the college people who were studying late into the night. Refrigerator was nice for keeping drinks cold without having to worry about ice. We had a lock out room next door to family members, so we could visit. After the door was closed we couldn't hear any noise from their room, which was nice. A great night's sleep!
The indoor pool with the water slide was great for the kids and kids at heart. It provided several hours of entertainment. Snack bar next to the pool was great for ordering drinks while reading by the pool.


Overall a great experience.

Room Tip: Close to the interstate, and across from the mall. WiFi was spotty, which was frustrating for an on...

Upon arrival in nearby Moorhead, we were appalled at the place we had placed reservations; conditions were deplorable. I called Ramada. (Months earlier I had placed reservations with them but cancelled when I learned they had pool-view, not pool-side rooms. Wish I would have kept them.) With this new extreme and immediate short notice, they found a room for us. I cancelled the Moorhead reservations and took off for Fargo. The front desk was extremely patient in giving us "on-the-go" directions as we traveled west, which was very helpful. Then the front desk found another room with a bigger bed and we were thrilled! We dined on excellent lobster and steak at their restaurant. Their establishment is beautiful, clean, friendly, and exactly what we needed for our get-away and the family members that were going to visit the next day. The pool area is fantastic with a 150-ft water slide, regular pool, kiddie pool (with waterfall mushroom), and hot tub (also sauna). It's beautifully decorated and has a beverage/food bar nearby and/or room service that serves poolside - which came in very handy. Ramada saved the day for us and we are very grateful! Rates were very reasonable too. Would definitely recommend and will stay there again.

Room Tip: Pool-view turned out to be a better choice as we had a nice view of the decorated pool area, but not...

This was our first stop on an across the country road trip taking our eldest out west to school. It was our worst experience on the entire trip! Believe me, we haven't forgotten that we have been falsely charged twice for our night, and we will continue our struggle to be refunded no matter how difficult you make it! This was our first stay with Ramada - and probably our last. Knowledge and training of all traveling discounts/bookings available to your consumers and how to handle each scenario is a must. If a third party is allowed to book a consumer at your hotel through them, it seems imperative that there should be communication through those two parties to understand how each operates and not force the consumer to do all the work to fix it! We used the same third party for 12 consecutive nights at different hotels and this place was the only one who could not figure it out!

Thank you for response. As we do apologize with the confusion of this reservation. We cannot allow a credit card to be charged without the proper documentation if it is from someone else for security purposes. We tried faxing it to Destination Rewards several times, they informed us there fax machine was down for the past couple days. We did receive the fax from them today (8/29/12 at 1:30pm) and re-credited your card immediately. We did our best in serving you as much as we could. We did also follow up with the company informing them of our policy for future guests traveling to our location. We do hope that you will come stay with us again! Please feel free to call us directly at 701-277-9000 to make the reservation.

The Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo is everything a hotel.
Service is paramount. The staff is always ready to help. They seem to take pride in the job no matter what it is. Front desk, housekeeping, bar or restaurant.
The food in Basie's is the best you will get in Fargo. Steak is great!
Sunday brunch amazing.

The room was more than expected and the steak dinner at Basie's was terrific. Exercise facility could have been larger. The pool area was clean and the water slide looked like fun for the kids. The front desk staff gave us some free drink coupons for the restaurant and provided excellent driving directions. This hotel is near the very large Scheels sporting goods store.
