Everything was ok. Curtains didn't close and there was a light outside. We used the clips on a clothes hanger to clip them together to get the room dark. The hotel did have coupons to a water park to make up for the pool being under repair. That was good.

We have two grown children who live in grand forks, and 4 children still at home, so when we go to visit, instead of imposing, we always stay here. We stayed when it was a holiday inn, a clarion, and now a Howard Johnson. I do not understand all of these negative reviews. We have never had a dirty room. We have never experienced anything broken. We have never had a bad breakfast. We have never had ANY staff member behave inappropriately. Yes, we have watched updating go on, we have noticed wear that is constantly being updated. Perhaps if rates were raised to the amount other hotels charge, this would be done more quickly? Or, perhaps we should all appreciate the very good deal we get and stop complaining? Just a thought, as we will be back this Easter to visit our children and enjoy ourselves. Please ignore restaurant rating, as it was incredible but is now closed.

Room Tip: Room 104. King jacuzzi

I have pictures of this place that you wouldn't believe! Mould on the ceiling, doors that don't close. broken internet. no customer service to speak of. No towels in the pool area. Pool chemicals open on the floor under the waterslide. filthy carpet. No security. All this can be yours for 89 dollars per night.
