“New hotel and a great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stayed at the Sleep Inn in Grand Forks last weekend while visiting family in the area. We booked the room on Priceline hoping to save a few dollars and we did quite well. I recommend giving it a try as long as there are no major events in town. The hotel is newly built and very clean. I beleive it was rated 2 stars on Priceline, but because it was new it seemed like it deserves a higher star rating than that. It is adjacent to the Alerus Center and Canadinn which has lots of amentites as well. The room had clean room, clean public areas and very confortable beds. I liked that the room had a microwave and refrigerator as well. A continental breakfast was also included and had eggs, bacon and sausages as well as waffles, cereal, juices and coffee. It was a god variety eally, but nothing all that great tasting. It wa all passable anyway. Complimentary newspapers are available at the front desk daily too. The pool area was small, but very clean and also had a nice jacuzzi. All of the employees were polite and friendly as well. We would certainly consider staying here again, even if we paid full price since it was in a good location and clean and comfortable.

We recently returned from a 3 day stay at the Sleep Inn in GFK. Overall, this is a nice place, although I personally would not give it a 5 stars. Simply, because it is somewhat basic. The front lobby is pleasant, the hotel itself is on the smaller side. We really liked the smaller size, it was easy to pop to the pool, find our friends and so on. The rooms seemed average size to me, very nice beds and bedding. The pictures on the walls, the carpet, and the furnishings were contemporary and gave the hotel and our room a modern kind of upscale feeling. Great flat screen TV and a good little fridge. The most "spectacular" feature in the room was the shower stall, which was generous with amazing water pressure and an elaborate shower head. Some of the minor negatives include what I can only describe as cheap touches; tiny bottles of lame shampoo, no glass cups, no toiletries, and a thermostat locked on a temperature, and no plants or chaises around the pool. We were quite hot the first night, although the next day I thought to ask the desk to change the temp and this improved. I don't mean to sound fussy, but this room was not inexpensive, so some of these touches seemed a little low end. The pool was pleasant, the hot tub was hot, and we certainly had a great time on our holiday. I think partly I am always surprised by the cost of GFK hotels. Anyways, we did like this hotel and with a few touches in could be even better.

Room Tip: Walls are thin, stay on the second floor to avoid noise.

My husband and I booked a last minute getaway to Grand Forks for some fall shopping and stayed at the Sleep Inn. Here are some thoughts:

Check-in/First Impression:
The hotel is only a year old, and it looks and feels new. It is spotless. The decor and finishings are modern and comfortable. All of the staff we met were very friendly, and we were greeted with a newspaper and an efficient check-in.

The room:
The hotel is completely smoke-free. We were booked into a double queen room, which was a good size and included a small fridge and microwave. The beds are very comfortable here, with wonderful, down-filled pillows. The bathroom was also a very good size…Lots of room to move around. There is complimentary Wolfgang Puck coffee in the room as well.

Amenities:
Amenities include free wireless, a 24 hour fitness room, which consists of a few machines, and a small pool and hot tub area, which are available until midnight. FYI - Other hotels offer better pool areas for families…This is very basic, and there is no shower area before entering the pool. This was a downside for me, but not enough to prevent enjoying a nice soak after an afternoon of shopping!

Breakfast:
The breakfast was included in the price of the stay, and was by far the most outstanding complimentary breakfast I have had to date. The selection of hot and cold food was varied and the attendant kept everything in good supply.

Location:
The hotel is right beside the Alerus Centre, and a two-minute drive from 32nd, where all of the main shopping is. You will need a car to access other parts of Grand Forks. The hotel has ample free parking.

Accessibility
This hotel has been designed with consideration to the visually impaired (braille on all wall placards), hearing impaired and "mobility challenged" (roll-in showers in some rooms)

Hotwire had the name of the hotel concealed and it was listed as a 2.5 star. Consequently, we booked it for an outstanding rate. The hotel is basic in some ways, but leagues beyond a 2.5 star in others. I hope they upkeep this property, as the cleanliness, decor and breakfast made it, in my opinion, really stand out from most hotels in its category. We would definitely stay there again, also provided the rate remained affordable.

Room Tip: If you have limited mobility, the hotel offers rooms with walk-in/roll-in showers.

Tried hotwire and it was a success. The Sleep Inn turned out to be much better than the hotwire rating. It was new, clean and although it was full it never seemed crowded. Noise between rooms was a minor factor but did not go on too late.

Stayed August 27-29/12 at the Sleep Inn. We had a two queen room which was very nicely decorated with higher end finishes. Beds were very comfortable. Room seemed a little tight for space but not too bad. Pool and hot tub were small but clean. The complimentary breakfast included scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, and biscuits and gravy along with a waffle maker and other standard breakfast items. Free coffee, tea and hot chocolate all day was nice.
Hotel in general was very clean however housekeeping staff seemed a little disorganized when it came to which rooms were checking out or not. We used a discount coupon so got our room and a really good rate as well!
Recommend for your next trip especially with the discount.

Room Tip: Try and stay somewhere in the middle of the hotel as you have the Interstate on one side and a main...

This hotel shows very well. Super clean rooms. Super beds for a great nights sleep. Super friendly staff. Super tasty breakfast too. Perfect location to all shopping & restaurants. Very reasonable rates as well. This is a perfect place to stay while in Grand Forks.
One more thing, can't wait for our Basketball team to stay here for the Grand Am/2013..
Thanks again Sleep Inn for a Super hotel experience.

This hotel is new and it was really well decorated. The decor made you feel real comfortable and the bed was perfect. Couldn't find one thing to complain about this place and not that I was looking for one either. Nice pool area w/hot tub and exercise room although mostly treadmills was very clean throughout. Would definitely come back for another stay.
