“Getting long in tooth”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

If you are looking for a good night sleep with no frills, this may meet your needs. It appears to be a re-branded Somethingelse so started life quite some time ago. Currently the hallways are undergoing renovation and are a bit tattered. It has a decent light breakfast with cereal, toast, fruit, rolls and including hot waffles if you want. Inside corridor entries. There is a walk-in shower (no tub). We used reward points so cannot comment on the rate but typically lower than many competitors.

Ok place, older standard rooms nothing at all to get excited about. Decent price easy parking and free wifi. Ask for a tub or they may give you the shower option. Free continental breakfast ill check that in the morning. Good hours for pool, hot tub and breakfast. Courteous staff, quick and efficient.

I went to spend time with my family we all meet and stayed at this hotel, first response of the room is it smelt of musty our window was screwed shut from opening it more than two inches. We stayed a friday and saturday night both nights no sleep, called the office both nights only one of the staff appoligized of the noise so not real friendly staff. Heard people stomping or dancing all night music playing. I was given a $25 dollar discount on the nausense of no sleep either night and did not even get that they gave it to the wrong person due to the clerk did not Identify the person picking up the cash in which I payed for this horrible room! Did not take off my shoes at all while in the room due to huge stains all over the carpets.

Room Tip: If traveling with twins ask for a handicapt room, a lot more room then the "Suites"

Brittany M,

I am sorry that your stay had issues with other guests making noise. Hotels when full sometimes have to deal with guests that do not consider others and our staff do the best they can to accomodate and deal with such issues.
The significant 25 dollars each night ( 50 dollasr in total ) hopefully showed we care about your stay and we do apologize for the noise. It may have taken longer to resolve than it should and i do apologize again.
I did talk to staff, and since your mother checked in with you and she came to the desk, they felt it appropriate to give the refund to her. As we discussed on the phone it sounded as though you understood that.
We are striving hard to update the entire hotel and the staff work hard to ensure clean rooms, clean public areas, and a safe environment for all our guests.
Again, I am sorry we did not meet your expectations on this visit. I do wish you could have had a more enjoyable experience as those in the past have shared.

The new management is awesome, we love staying here every time we go to Fargo, the kids love the breakfast and I love that it's not too close to the busy mall, but close enough, plus there are restaurants and other stores within walking distance

This hotel has been improving more and more, since we have started staying there. We have stayed at this hotel at least a half dozen times in the last few years. This time, we were given one of the newly renovated suites and service was exceptional. The only thing that wasn't the best was the tv. The tv's are still old and the variety of channels is poor. They need to add some decent movie channels to the line-up. We had the whirlpool suite, and it is nice to sit in the hot tub and watch a good movie. Other than that, it was a great stay. We will be back again in November.

The room and breakfast area were spotless. I had to ask for more pillows, as there were only 2 flat ones on the bed, but they brought them up quickly. Shower head was too low (knee bends in the morning) and the water was hard and harsh.
The real problem was that the walls between rooms are not insulated. There were loud people next to us, and some foulmouthed drunken idiot came knocking at our door at 4:30 a.m. So maybe avoid this hotel on weekends? It was a Friday night.

malcolmdinko,
Thank you for sharing your stay at the Rodeway Inn Fargo. We appreciate your comments.
I am sorry you had to experience the low shower heads. We have been installing shower extentions and new shower heads in all rooms. On your visit these had not yet all been replaced in all rooms. Maintenance will soon have these done hotel wide. It is amazing how low they had them when they built the hotel ! The new owner and Manager are diligently seeking improvements to this recently purchased property.


Thank you again,

Dean Rich

Well again it is place I have not stayed at for a few yrs.
I was impressed when we walked in. the lobby looks like it has been redone it has a clean pool on the left side when you come in the front desk is on the right, it looks redone also

The front desk staff where very freindly and helpful. The breakfast area is new and bright with a good selection of goodies. When you walk down the hall you see they are in the middle od the face lift.
the rms where very clean again you can tell they are working to fix them the carpet in our rm was pretty grundgy But otherwise it was fairly clean.

When you wlk down the hall you can also tell they are working hardnat fixing it up.
The only problem I had was that when I made my reservation was they did not tell me there was a $60.00 damage deposit . Other wise the price was right for what we got. Keep it up

3 out of 6 wheels this time.

remember
keep the shinny side up and the rubberside down

6wheelcridic,

Thank You for your kind review! Yes we are working hard to give this property the desrved facelift it needs. Although it was neglected by the previous owner for years, and as new owners and managers and staff, we hope to bring new life back to the Rodeway Inn of Fargo!
We also have a new pool liner being installed this week! It will be an awesome addition to the hotel!
Thanks again, and we hope to see you next time you visit Fargo!!
