“First time visitor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We stayed at the Arbuckle Lodge this past Easter weekend. Not a bad place. Just be mindful that there is not a lot of parking, the pool is smaller, OK for smaller kids. I did wish they had a comfortable chair in the room, as the room is quite spacious. Its at the junction of Interstate 29 and 94, fairly close to all amenities.

Thank you for choosing the Arbuckle Lodge for your stay over Easter weekend and for taking the time to write a review. When the hotel is full, parking can be tricky. It will help tremendously once the large snow pile is melted at the south end of our lot, and I am so sorry that we had to take up those parking spaces. We do have a much better plan for heavy snow next year. I hope that it will not deter you from staying again. We also have it noted for extra seating when it comes time for that. People love our spacious rooms!

We just finished spending the easter weekend at the Arbuckle. The rooms are quite large, as are the bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable. The pool area is really nice, especially if your kids are 12 and under, the pool is just right for small kids. The breakfast during week days is outstanding, during Saturday and Sunday not quite as good, but it is o.k. The hotel is close to everything in Fargo. For the rate you pay, it is a real good value. I would recommend it to everyone.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us at the Arbuckle Lodge. I appreciate your comments on our breakfast from weekday to weekend. We offer everything the same except 2 items on the weekend. However, we have heard your comments and are looking at a couple things to add to the breakfast on weekends! I hope that you will stay with us soon to check out what we are going to offer!

Stayed at the Arbuckle Lodge in Fargo, ND from Mar. 22-Mar25...our first reaction was WOW! The room (and bathroom) was huge! Yes, it was a room with two double beds, but still was larger than most hotels. Very clean. Polite and attentive staff, complimentary breakfast, close to mall...what more could you ask for? I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially families and would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice hotel that is very clean and quite new. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. However, the breakfast is very mediocre, the pool area did not seem as clean as the rest of the hotel, and the hot tub was COLD, and it is very, very loud. We could hear doors slamming and people snoring in the next room all night. As well, our kids were in a hide abed, which was the only room option available, and were so uncomfortable on it, one of them ended up sleeping with us. In the hotel's defence, though, they did give us an air mattress for the next night.

It is a fine hotel, but for $130 a night, we would look elsewhere for a better value next time. However, the staff was the highlight of this hotel.

We stayed here with our 2 young children on March 19th. Great room rate of only $80. Nice sized room, complimentary soup and bratwurst in the lobby at 5:30, free extensive breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage, homemade bread, bagels, muffins, cereal, etc. This place was close to everything, clean, and quiet - at least during our stay. The pool area was a good size and had a hot tub and slide. My only complaint would be that the free wi-fi had a weak signal.

We would definitely stay again! In fact we would loved to have stayed tonight on our way home from Minneapolis, but there were no vacancies. My daughter was very disappointed but it was our poor planning to blame. We will definitely stay here again - with an advanced booking.

Stayed over night as a last minute decision to do some shopping, nice location, very clean, huge room for $115, the fireplace and big comfy chairs were very welcome.

Pool had a little to much chlorine, but didn't ruin our stay.
Highly recommended, will stay again.

Though i have not yet stayed at the Arbuckle Lodge in Fargo, i am planning a trip and have a room reserved at this establishment. After reading every single review on TripAdvisor good and bad, the manager had responded to almost all of them. My question is this: If any suggestions were made about things that were within the control of the manager, did they take action on these? I did read reviews about the pool area being too strong chlorine smelling, that means a "dirty pool" in my opinion. If these items were not addressed, it makes me a little hesitant about bringing my 4 year old there. Any feedback would help. Thanks. Mike

I am so happy you asked about follow up at our hotel. We take pride in learning from our guests and mistakes, so if it is in our control, we absolutely take steps to fix it. In reference to the pool, we have switched over to a copper sanitation system which eliminates having to use chlorine 99% of the time. Without getting too technical, the levels of chlorine are now not needed to "keep the pool clean" because the copper does that. I appreciate your questions and if you do have more, please give me a call. I would be happy to answer them!
