“disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2010

Rooms are renovated, but small and smelled musty with a heavy scent of febreze to cover the smell. Bathroom was so tiny it was hard to close the door when inside. No fridge in room.

We went to the hotel for the pool as they have a pirate ship with water slides. The pool water was dirty, hazy, and over clorinated. The water was visibly dirty and you could feel the dirt on your feet on the bottom of the pool. The hottub was also scummy and full of dirty bubbles. My son also cut his foot on something in the pool, on the slide, or on the ladder, we weren't sure.

There are also many dogs in the hotel - something to consider if you have allergies.

Staff are friendly, restaurant service was good, and check-in was quick, but for over $100/night, this hotel is a rip off - stay else where! After 3 hours we wanted to leave, but we had prepaid and were essentially stuck...

I stay at this hotel each year for a business convention. I always wish I had kids with me because the pool area (with slides and a giant pirate ship) would be so much fun for them. Excited kids and sleepy parents are up at 8am heading to the pool. Very comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Good restaurant. Good business/convention facilities. I never have a problem staying at this hotel.

My kids, ages 2 and 6, spent hours (literally 4 hours) in the pool at the facility. They loved all of the slides and we appreciated the availability of life jackets as we had not brought them along.

We were there for a wedding which had the reception there. It was a beautiful facility and brunch the next day was very good as well. As my 6 year old requested, we want to go back someday.

My family and I stayed here for my brothers wedding in June, the staff at the hotel made everything so enjoyable! The wedding reception was far more then we expected, decor of the room, food, and the staff made the whole evening so great. Our sleeping room was nice, flat screen TV , granite bathroom tops, modern decor. My children 6 and 10 got a chance to use the pool and had so much fun going down the slides and playing on the pirate ship. We enjoyed breakfast the day after the wedding in the hotels restaraunt, no need to travel outside hotel for meals, friendly service, good food and also children eat free! We are from the area so we don't stay in fargo hotels, only did so to be closer to the wedding activites, but we are so glad we did. We will return for a " mini" vacation during our cold winters, glad to find this treasure so close to home!

This Holiday Inn is located next to almost everything. Restrauants , a shopping mall , stores , gas stations , airport , and the highway. A Holiday Inn Express is right next door too. We were instantly shown to our room on the second floor overlooking the pool. Very courteous staff and free lemonade in the lobby. Very clean rooms , bathroom , and free high-speed internet. The beds/pillows were also very comfortable. We had breakfast in the restrauant at the hotel. Excellent food!

We were travelling north to Canada and stayed 1 night at the Holiday Inn Fargo.

I really liked this hotel, the rooms were very clean, the beds were comfy, it was quiet and really quite nice.

They allow pets for a $10 pet fee,

We were on the 1st floor, the elevator is a mile away, so if you have a lot of luggage you may want to address that when you check in.

Our room was quiet and cool and as someone else mentioned there are lots of shops in the area if you need anything.

They also offer room service - which we did have and it was incredibly quick and the food was pretty good. They also have a restaurant and a dominos pizza at this location.
