“Friend of Quality Inn”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

After reviewing numerous negative comments on this site, I would like to begin by saying that I stayed during the first ND home game. This property is in the middle of an ownership change which was explained to me by the manager. The only problem I had the whole weekend was with a kid at the front desk, ironically named Nick. He was rude, disinterested and made me feel like I was bothering him. I did formally complain about his rudeness and the manager on duty was incredibly apologetic and accommodating. Even had a free drink in Gippers! There is no question in my mind why Nick is no longer there. That is definitely one of their first improvements.

had rooms for a football weekend. upon registering we were told the bank took over the hotel. gippers lounge was closed due to license issues. got to our rooms, one had no hot water, other had no tv channels. cont. breakfast is a joke (unedible) only positives were location to nd, pancake house across the street, and the front desk staff was very cordial. at one time, nice place, stay away now

When you pull in at midnight on a road trip, you can't always choose where you stay. I would never choose this place again, though. There was a dirty t-shirt on the sidewalk in front of the room when we went in, and it was still there at 9:00 the next morning. When we opened the door to the room, we got hit with a big whiff of musty moldiness, and we had to leave the door open for an hour and turn the AC up full to clear the air. The tub was dirty, there were big stains on the carpet, and things in the bathroom were falling apart. Worse, there were no outlets near the bed for my husband's CPAP machine or even a reading light. We were in the room less than nine hours, but it was too long.
