Did our annual weekend trip to Grand Forks for hockey and Christmas shopping. As usual, even using discount internet reservations, had to take a deep breath and remember that Grand Forks
is a bustling little town with big city hotel prices on weekends when Canadians travel for shopping and hockey getaways. (If you're not a hockey parent take advantage of the mid week coupons in the Winnipeg papers).
The Sleep Inn is on the outskirts of town, just a short jaunt from the Aleris Centre....we could see
I 29 from our bedroom windows.... and perhaps 5 minutes drive from Columbia Mall. I do not recall seeing it on previous trips, and it certainly looked as if it had been built in the past year or two. Both interior and interior are spartan....but everyone from the front desk clerk to the cleaning staff was super friendly and anxious to assist in any way that would make our visit a pleasant one.
Our bedroom was quite small with a queen size bed and one large chair, the bathroom spotless
and nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room was extremely quiet.. no noise from the highway.
The usual breakfast with do-it-yourself waffles, coffee, oranges, etc. was included in the room price. The seating area is not very large, so get up early to get a table.
No frills here, and no pool for families with children. However, if all you need is a bed to occupy you can count on a warm welcome, and a comfortable place to sleep.
