“Very nice for short or long stays.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Spacious accommodations in rural Bowman, ND. Stayed in the very clean, comfortable new rooms which offer full kitchen, large TV and tile floors. Bring your own shampoo and hair dryer. Highly recommend

Very clean and comfortable rooms if you stay in the new wing. Absolutely unbeatable price, close to everything in town, and nice roomy accomodations. Kitchenette had everything you would need and was spotlessly clean.

We took a room here for two nights because the highly rated North Winds Lodge was full. This place is adjacent to the North Winds and certainly far from full, but it was perfectly adequate and cheaper. The room was spacious and clean where it matters, just don't look too closely in the corners. The room had a microwave, fridge, flat screen tv, coffee pot, and the front desk loaned me a hair dryer. The chairs need to be replaced; they are stained, probably from grimy oil workers clothes. The wall paneling had been painted white which brightened the room. The WiFi was not working; the front desk did not know why. However, for a place to sleep for not a lot of money, this place is fine.

It was a older decor....but who cares.....as long as it was clean, quiet & comfortable.........

My room was huge... but not exactly any place I'd like to stay again. The bed was only quasi-comfortable, and the dark paneling and faux brick wall were shagadelic and underwhelming. Walls were thin and the noise from next door was pretty disturbing.
While the front desk person was friendly, housekeeping was hit and miss. (I was a long term guest.) For the first few days, the child's hand print in chunky mud on the wall was cute, but after a week? Not so cute.
The water at this place was unpleasant. Not sure if that's a fluke with this hotel, but the tub was really, really slick, and the toilet water was always slightly yellow.
When the wind blows, the roof starts vibrating to the point that it sounds like you're in a centrifuge. Disarming, and irritating, not to mention sleep was nearly impossible during those times.
I will avoid staying here again.

Room Tip: Stay in a room on the end, away from the main road. They are supposedly quieter there.

Bowman is a small town; however this hotel was clean and comfortable, everything worked, there was a fridge as well as a coffee maker, and was reasonably priced. It was quiet and the front office was friendly.
