Reviewed June 9, 2012

The hotel doesn't make the best first impression but it's actually pretty good. The room was clean and spacious and had a mini-fridge. Didn't like that the TV was mounted to the wall, but that's not a big deal. The beds were firm but comfortable. The other furniture was a bit more dated but still in good overall condition. Although the cushions on the chairs were kinda cruddy with stains and a cigarette burn (even though we stayed in a no smoking room). The bathroom and shower was nice. The towels were very basic and the bed sheets seemed rather thin. The room air conditioner worked properly. Yes, I would stay here again but might try to find someplace a bit nicer if it wasn't too expensive.

Never tried one of their properties and used a coupon so paid $54 inc tax. Genuine friendly receptionist, speedy check in. Room fine clean with two queen beds, fridge and microwave. Table and two chairs. No coffee maker, no elevator.

Breakfast was juice, toast, pastries, english muffins and coffee.

Good location just short drive into Grand Forks. Would have no hesitation staying again.

Check in staff was unfriendly - apparently we were bothering her. Although the room was overall clean, decor took me back to the 80's, one dirty and stained chair not appealing, shower in need of repair, heat difficlut to regulate. No in room coffee maker...breakfast left something to be desired. Sidewalks not cleared of ice and snow - difficult. One positive wi-fi access was great!

We have had a horrible time dealing with this hotel!! We are from Winnipeg and do not know Grand Forks very well and when we booked the hotel we asked for directions... take a right and than another right. We did that and ended up at a hotel, but had apparently send us to the Settle Inn... would you have known the difference? The settle inn was just great and we had no idea the select inn even existed! On our way back from shopping we took columbia instead of the i29 and actually ran into the select inn and realized the mistake. Horrified we went into the lobby and discussed the issue we had with the front desk woman who was so rude! She blatently said it happens all the time even with pizza guys that live in grand forks! I told them I should not be charged as it was not fully my mistake and she said there was nothing she would do. We looked around the lobby with the broken school chairs and dingy carpet (the lobby is usually nicer than the rooms) and refused to stay one more minute in there. Honestly if we had not made this mistake we would have not stayed there anyway! So we called the head manager today to discuss what happened and she was more rude than the woman at the front desk! I don't care about spending a whole extra $60 but I wanted to make this aware that it doesn't happen to anyone else, and she pretty much called me a dumb university kid and that she would pass it on to a general manager.
I would never step foot in that hotel, not just because of the dirty lobby and horrible front staff but I would never give that hotel a cent of my money! Just a bad experience and i feel like everyone should know so that they don't get scammed the same way we did.

We stayed here for 1 night after a business function. The place was clean and in good repair. It appears that a lot of the customers are in the construction business and live there. Because there is no pool there were no children. Our room was right off of the front desk and we never heard a sound. If you are looking for a clean place to sleep and not a lot of extras that you pay for but don't use, this is the place.

We stayed 2 nights only because there was nothing else available in town after booking weeks before online. Looks great from the road but the inside...whole different story , rooms run down and dirty. Went to take a shower and could hard rinse the shampoo out of my hair, complained about the water pressure and they asked what time of the day we showered, which was 3 different times of the day during the two days we stayed and it did not matter.
