“Very nice stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Checked in by surprise as airport delays kept me in town due to storm. Amazingly accommodating front desk manager checked me in early- 10am.

Room and hotel were very updated/modern. Loved everything as far as furnishings.

First room had a heck of a draft coming in through the AC unit. I called the front desk manager and she sent maintenance up to stuff towels around it. After about 30 minutes I couldn't take the draft any more and called the front desk manager again. She apologized and happily moved me to another room on opposite side of the hotel. The wind was 40 miles per hour with gusts to 60 miles per hour, and it was about -2 degrees. The weather really was the factor here, not so much the hotel.

The hotel is very nice, and the staff were amazing!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Stayed at this hotel on Thanksgiving night 2012. Got there late and did some early morning shopping. Got back to hotel at 1 am to go to bed. When taking the blankets back my wife said the bed had a wet spot on it (spot was right where your bottom would be). I felt it with my hand and was grossed out as it was wet, and yellow. Washed my hands many times before calling the front desk. She at first told us to come and get new blankets. We said we were NOT sleeping on that bed. She gave us a new room and apologized.
The problem I have with all of this was no mention or apology from the manager or phone call. I purposely checked out at the front desk the next morning just to see if the issue was passed on but not a word. One week later I received an email to rate our experience. Told the story and at the end of the form it asked if we would like to be contacted. I said YES. December 13th and still no word. I guess if I managed this place I would be calling and apologizing to someone this happen to. Not one word. we are not the kind of people who want something for nothing but a phone call or something from the manager telling us how he is making sure this does not happen to someone else would have been nice. Guess they really don't care if you "go" in their beds and the cleaning people miss it and just cover it up with fresh bedding. DISGUSTING!

Stayed one night in November here, had no problems what so ever. Quick check in, and quick check out. Nice new look at the hotel. Normal type breakfast like most american hotels, served in a cozy eating area.

This was a planned stay on the home leg of a two week trip. It was another enjoyable HIE visit, although it was more expensive than others we visited on our trip. We found no billboards for it on the highway and construction made it a bit challenging to find. It is located in the newer part of Bismarck and there are plenty of close restaurants.

Our check-in was quick and staff was friendly. The room was clean and quiet. No complaints at all. Upon entering the lobby for breakfast, there was a very strong ammonia odor and guests were coughing and chocking. The breakfast room attendant said it was "oven cleaner" and had never happened before. Staff quickly opened windows and the door and the smell quickly went away. That being said, breakfast was great as was the stay.

The room was nice and large, very clean and the staff could not have been any nicer. Our Grandchildren had fun at the pool. We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. It was easy to find off the highway and lots of great places to eat nearby.

Just stayed the one night when driving from Winnipeg to the Black Hills. Roadworks near the hotel were causing a few traffic problems but I guess this won't last too much longer. Customers used to HIE will find most reviews unsurprising. This was a standard HIE and still has a feel of 'newness'. It was spotlessly clean in the bedroom, bathroom and communal areas and its location was ideal for several nearby restaurants. We used Applebees, within walking distance. Breakast was good, with hot choice, and served nice and early to get on the road. Staff were all pleasant and check in/check out was quick and friendly. Ample car parking. Would definitely stay here if passing through again.
