I have stayed in this hotel many times and it has been in Williston for many years, it is not one of the new hotels in town. Because of the age it has become rather run down and a little slummy. Despite this the prices are still quite high though not as bad as the new one. It's not a complete dive but if the prices for other places weren't so high I would not stay here.

There are a lot of crap holes in the Bakken and this one tops them all. They need to do a full renovation and not allow anyone to stay till its complete. Hallways are dark smelly and totally unsecured. Rooms are just as bad. Windows painted shut, curtains hanging and broken and not even a chain or dead bolt on the door.

These other reviews have to be fake because no one in their tight mind would think anything positive about this place

I reserved the room with my card, then wanted to pay cash for my room and they put a $250 hold on my card... which they did not tell me they would do when I reserved the room, and I didn't have that available on my card so I had to call my husband who was in ANOTHER state and ask for his card. The rooms are not nice, the carpet felt nasty, so I wore my socks the whole time, the bed was not comfy, the room had a weird smell, the shower dripped all night, the fan switch was coming off of the wall, and our room was close to the exit, so we heard the door BANG shut every single time someone went in and out of it throughout the night. NOT recommended!

Dear Hollie,

I am sorry for any inconvenience you encountered as with your registration card upon check in, you signed and acknowledged a $250 deposit as is standard in Williston and with any/all Hotels, I have talked to the Front desk personnel to ensure it is echoed prior to check in, in regards to deposits.

You are a valued guest and we appreciate your business as we continue to renovate, once again I am very sorry for any inconvenience you encountered.

Best regards,

They have a wonderful sales staff that helped us with our reservations and any questions we had. Our crew has been using this hotel for years and we have no complaints. The staff is friendly and easy to work.

We stayed at the Grand Williston a few weeks ago while visiting family. The staff was so friendly and a pleasure to meet. Dave S. was SUPER helpful, and very knowledgeable. For an older hotel the rooms were very clean and I understand improvements are in the works - can't wait to see how it turns out!. Definitely the best bargain in Williston, and we'll be staying again on our next trip!.

Room Tip: Standard Double Queen Room was plenty of room for our family of 4

Had to travel to Williston for business, and arrived early morning a day early.Thank god for the front desk clerk Chelsea who was amazing and let us check in a day early and had to move rooms around to accommodate us. The food was excellent and got to thank the chef Arron thanks to Chelsea ! I would recommend the grand Williston to anyone who expects great customer service !
