I stay here every time I visit Minot. The rates are unbeatable, it's clean, there's a pool and hot tub, free breakfast & wifi, rooms with microwave & fridge and an onsite bar. It's also not busy, so it's quiet. What more do you need? I would rate them 5 stars but last time I stayed, I forgot my prescription glasses behind. I know they were left in the room because I never wore them out of the room, I wore my contacts. Housekeeping denied finding them, so I was without glasses for over a week waiting for the replacement I was forced to buy. The front desk people are excellent. It's unfortunate that 1 thieving maid tarnishes the overall reputation.

Cheap, bare bones. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money it’s okay. No comfy chairs in rooms, towels are thin, free breakfast leaves something to be desired. But I’ve used it a few times now when passing through Minot and needed a cheap place to stay. Rooms are clean and adequate for that.

Great location and cheap but that's all. Beds are the worst I've ever seen in a hotel, just a box spring. Very old, somewhat clean. Shower was ok at least, it's geared towards construction workers and hunters and I've been in much better places as a hunter.

The motel is in a fairly good location. The refrigerator and microwave oven in the room were pleasant surprises. The room size and bed comfort were adequate. The free breakfast was adequate at best. The staff were very friendly. The wifi quality was so poor that it dragged down my overall rating.

Would never stay here again. Before even entering the room, the place is dirty and totally unkempt. Dusty (like-- yucky dust). Room was not welcoming from the minute I walked in. Wierd smell. Room has not have repairs or re-do of anything in a long time. Toilet really gross and was not cleaned at all. Outer and middle bed linens old and gross..... stains and "stuff" (wha---?). Also boogery-looking stuff.Are they too lazy to wash it? Did NOT sleep in the bed. The sink..... not cleaned. I am not exaggerating with any of these comments.
