Clean comfortable room. LCD TV, fridge in room. Will stay again next time I am in area. Parking right outside your door is nice when hauling luggage in and out. Quiet place, no guests slamming door down hall like most hotels. Skip the chains and stay here.

We had been on the road all day and were hot and tired so we decided to take the advice of others on TripAdvisor and stopped in here. Glad we did. The lady at the front desk (filling in for the family who owns the motel) was SO sweet, funny and helpful. The room was clean, freshly decorated and well-appointed.... More

We booked the North Winds Lodge strictly because of the Tripadvisor reviews and because it was a nice stop-over from the boring drive up from South Dakota. This is a family owned, retro-style motel that has the coveted one-story, pull up to your room parking. Kevin is omnipresent and if he is not at the desk, he will not be... More

This is a locally owned motel that reminds me of some of the places we would stay as kids on family vacations. But this motel is a lil different then most of the roadside gigs Dad would end up at! It is sooooo clean and up to date! Flat screens and spacious rooms. The shower is to die for and... More

Very nice rooms, spacious, clean, all new furniture. I was quite impressed. Had been staying in Lemmon SD in a sad excuse for a motel so this was a refreshing change. Staff is also very nice and helpful.

It's your normal small town lodge. Window unit in the wall for heat & air. Bathroom does have a timed heater tho to help you warm it up! Everything was clean! The room was large and all out door access, which is nice if you're a smoker. I'd stay here again.

The room was clean and warm and the people nice. I was traveling on business and wanted to warm up food. There is only one microwave located in the vending area, and you had to go outside to get to it. I was there in January so that was a real inconvenience. If the rooms had microwaves I would stay...

The North Winds Lodge is a classic motel that harkens back to childhood road trips -- a single-story of rooms arranged around a parking lot with a small swimming pool in the center. Debbie, the owner, was amazingly helpful and friendly, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the fridge and microwave were quiet and spotless. Comfy bed and... More

Clean rooms, including fridge and microwave, small swimming pool with water about 100 degrees, just right, very efficient service.....quiet, and FULL. They must get a lot of repeat business. And they have AAA rates. Nice sign, maybe from the 1950s? Great place to spend a night or two. VERY good wifi!

Bowman has several unbranded hotels and Northwinds Lodge is the best of the ones I've stayed with (out of four stays). I stayed here twice during a North Dakota road trip. Rooms are nice -- clean, comfortable and quiet, with adequate TV. In-room coffee is included but breakfast is not. Pricing is reasonable. The owners live on the property and... More
