The room smelled like wet dog. It hit you as soon as you opened the door. I have stayed in pet friendly hotels before and never experienced anything like it. The breakfast was decent. I always like the make your own waffles.

I couldn't believe the cheap price. $55 a night. They do offer hot breakfast and free wii fi The room was clean but could have smelled a little fresher. AC worked and very good cable . Lots of channels.

Problems from the initial booking when we accidentally clicked twice and booked double the rooms we wanted. Immediately called the hotel but they would not refund. Turns out that was the best part of our stay since our first room smelled so strongly of wet dog that it hit you as soon as the door was opened (room 120). The... More

I was not expecting much as the price was so good, and I figured I should have low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to see the hotel and room was very clean, yes it is outdated, but at that price that is expected. It had everything you would want in a room, minifrig, coffee maker, hot shower,comfortable beds/pillows. I also... More

Wasn't impressed...the workers were surly and lazy. The bathroom in the lobby was filthy. Yeah, I understand that this is a budget hotel...but staff NEEDS to be friendly and bathrooms NEED to be clean. Next time I'm in town, I will find other lodging

We stayed for 1 night. Room was clean, staff was helpful. Got up too late for breakfast so can't comment on that. Will be staying again for a night next month. Location was close to restaurants, shopping and shuttle to Fargodome.

We were greeted by a woman in a dirty shirt, who needed a shower. A young man came out of the office with no shoes on. Not a great first impression. When we pulled the bedding down, we noticed that the sheets were dirty. I went to tell her and she asked if I wanted her to come change the... More

we stayed here, thankfully for only one night-got in late and left early. Our room smelled horrible, like some kind of a perfume-y smell that was sprayed to cover up another smell. It made my throat itch. The beds were semi-comfortable. The bathroom was not very clean- thankfully we only used it to brush our teeth. There was dust and... More
