“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Spent one night here passing through town, every single hotel in Bismarck was booked solid with the exception of this Best Western so even though I don't typically stay in BW's I decided to give it a shot given that I really had no other choice. I honestly didn't have very high expectations but in the end I was pleasantly surprised as it's a pretty decent hotel.

This is an older property but I'd say the rooms themselves have been renovated fairly recently. From the outside the hotel looks a little on the shabby side, it's a 2 story, sort of layed out like the old Holiday Inn's that were built back in the 70's. The interior hallway carpeting was really rough looking but the room itself was nice.

I had a double queen room, it was clean and comfortable, one bed was a standard spring mattress and hard as a rock, the other was a plush, soft foam mattress....I liked the fact that you had an option of hard or soft mattress.... don't know if they meant it that way or if it was just a coincidence though.

The room had a microwave and fridge, flat screen LCD tv and was a good overall size. The wireless Internet worked well and had a decent speed.

Given the rules of supply and demand yes I did get price gouged a bit as I paid $116, it could have been worse though given the lack of availability of hotels, however, realistically the hotel was worth probably $75 - $85 tops. I don't feel as though I was completed ripped off though because I did still enjoy my stay.

I give the hotel 3.5 stars total, in my opinion it's a better option then the Select Inn, Days Inn or Comfort Inn in Bismarck, all of which I have stayed at in the past.

I'd definitely return if the price was right but would I pay $116 again...no probably not.

I am glad to hear that you were pleasantly surprised! We are continually making improvements to our property. I am glad to hear that you noticed it in the sleeping rooms. We have put granite in all of our sleeping rooms and we are in the process of putting in new beds in another 53 rooms as well as carpet in the hallways, lobby, meeting spaces and restaurant/lounge. I hope that you will come back and stay with us again! Thank you for your business and your feedback!

My wife and I stayed at Doublewood Inn for one night. The hotel desk staff were excellent. We were put in a room on the ground floor close to the lobby upon request with no problem due to my handicap. The rib-eye steak in the restaurant ( I think,) came from the sole of somebody's work boot, but on the bright side, the steak and eggs and omelet the next morning were very good. Overall we would stay there again and would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: As far as I know, all the rooms are good.

I have stayed at this hotel for severtal months for work and, by far, I have never stayed at any hotel throughout this country where I have been treated better or with more personnal professionalism. The hospitality of the staff from the front desk to the houskeepers made me feel as if I were at home amoung family. Thank You all!

A perfect atmosphere to meet the needs of anyone! Whether to meet friends, family, business or romantic night away. The atmosphere in the lounge and dining room are tremendously soothing! You wouldn't even need to visit the hot tub after enjoying this experience; however, that option is definitely available as well. We recommend you get there soon and you won't be disappointed!!!!
