Staff was pleasant, check-in was easy. Room and hotel were clean. A continental breakfast was available, and guests needed to have on masks and gloves while getting food.(gloves and masks were provided.) Bread, pastries, boiled eggs, etc were all individually wrapped or bagged. Basically a decent night.

My husband and I were on vacation driving around ND and stayed here after touring Theodore Roosevelt National Park (started the day at the South Unit and drove up to the North Unit and then into Watford City). This hotel has a good location not far off of the highway. There are several restaurants nearby, within walking distance. The room was clean, the only problem we had was getting the hot water to come up when we wanted a shower. Probably due to being on the third floor and not that many guests these days. The breakfast in the morning was certainly adequate, the breakfast room was really nice, large enough to socially distance responsibly.

Nicely maintained. Water pressure out of tub spout was minimal but there was okay shower spray but no pressure behind it to remove shampoo so it took 3x as long as normal ( no water savings). Liked the built-in night light in the hairdryer- fantastic idea! They initially had placed us in a room near the elevator (we had requested a room away from it) but the lady at the desk was able to move us and gave us a suite in order to get us a room away from the elevator. One draw back to this place it the nearness to a busy road, on a downhill with lots of trucks engine breaking. Not too bad at night but early morning it was loud. Maybe a room away from the road would be quieter. Breakfast was similar to others but they had real utensils. Overall the hotel seemed better maintained and kept up than many we’ve stayed in recently.

This is a really nice hotel, near the visitor's center. Nice room, bed was very good, staff were nice. Very reasonable price. Free tea/coffee/cocoa available all day, free cookies in the afternoon (yum!). Worth staying here!

My husband and I were on a road trip. We stayed at the Watford Hotel due to it's proximity to the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which is about 30 minutes from the hotel. Our room was a two room suite. The space was a good size, although the bathroom was a bit tight. No pool. Nice lobby area and outdoor seating with grills. The water pressure could be better.

New hotel, we stayed the middle of July for one night. We chose it because of the good reviews on trip advisor. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, directv instead of cable. (directv is the only tv.)
we tried the bar, great drinks, they were never allowed to go empty, outstanding service. paid 159.00 for a saturday night, which didn't seem too out of line for a nice place in the oil patch. I would recommend this place and would stay here again.

I stayed in this brand new hotel for a few days while in the area on business and it is definitely a "rose in a thorn patch" very clean, comfortable beds, fridge in room, flat screen tv, etc. On site small lounge, business center. Friendly staff. Free breakfast. A good base and place for deal making if in ND on business.

I have stayed here off and on since the hotel has been open, its like my second home. rooms are super nice and the staff treats you like family. Both Michelle, and Amanda make the hotel experience even more comfortable by going out of their to help any way they can. They are also very friendly and funny, I wouldn't stay any where else..

Travelers & visitors to Watford City who desire lodging comparable to upper-mid range hotels such as Hilton brands (Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn) or Marriott (Courtyard) have a very good option with The Watford Hotel. Less than a year old, this hotel property is being kept well maintained and clean. Not an easy task considering the dirt and dust of the surrounding roads and on the shoes of guests! Front desk staff are friendly and personable; amenities are plentiful including fitness room, business center, laundry room, lounge/bar (enclosed area to minimize noise). Small touches as free cookies, a 24-hr snack store, coffee station, etc. are nice. My room had a king-size bed and small work desk. The cabinet on which the TV was set on also enclosed a small refrigerator and microwave (covered by doors). Tub/shower and toilet are in the bathroom. Sink and mirror are outside the bathroom in the "hall" of the room. My only disappointment with the room is the lack of a comfortable chair. My room had one small, upright and uncomfortable chair in the corner; definitely not meant for relaxing, reading, or watching TV. Management should consider adding comfortable chairs to the rooms. The following aspects of the room were satisfactory: lighting, climate controls, Wi-Fi connection, and mattress/pillows. I believe the television service is via satellite provider; I found it difficult to find subscribed channels from the hundreds that seemed available. I found the shower head to provide a less than ideal water pressure; hot water temp was fine though. Appears there is soft water here; guests not accustomed to soft water will feel a difference when rinsing off soap/shampoo (I realize this is not a big deal). Free breakfast is ok; nothing special and similar to what you would get at a Hampton Inn or similar hotel. At a cost of $150/night it is, overall, a very good hotel to stay in.
P.S. While I observed that most guests are business travelers, myself included, travelers on vacation who may be visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park should give strong consideration to staying here. Watford City is approx. 15 miles from the park's North Unit. I would argue that Medora, ND at the South Unit has more of a tourist/vacation atmosphere than Watford City. However, staying in Watford City may help create efficiencies in some vacationers schedules/itineraries.
