“Conference”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

On a three day conference found the locale less than great. Food was OK, toaster bought out after most had eaten. Coffee cups TOO small. Air conditioning extremely cold in meeting area. This is a good hotel for family fun and shopping in the area, NOT for business meetings.

Room Tip: Top floors were good

I recommend this place for business and fun stay, including hockey games
+ nice rooms, great restaurant options including the bistro, Tavern United PUB and the in-house breakfast place. Best breakfast buffet out of all Canad Inns. Bistro is great for dinner and Tavern United is convenient for drinks. Bus shuttle to hockey games, water park.
- expensive rooms, far away from downtown, but it's right on the highway.

Where to begin! At Check-In we were greeted with a gentlemen that was struggling to find our reservation, charged us the wrong rate, & attempted to described a $200 deposit that we were not made aware of anywhere on the web-site or upon making the reservation! This 20 minute process was all explained by the fact that it was his "2nd day"! The rate was later adjusted after our group of 16 rooms threatened to leave!
As far as the facility I would rate this hotel overpriced. The rooms are clean & roomy, but it is a very noisy hotel. Not sure why, but you can hear everything in the hall & the rooms next to you! Our experience in the restaurant was similar to check-in! Took our group forever to get drinks, food for kids, with the adults waiting 50 minutes for our food! The quality of the food is poor! We sent back 3 orders...cold, dry meat, poor quality! Our apology from the manager was that "I have 3 new waitresses on tonight" do you see a trend here?
In conclusion I would describe this as a nice facility that is poorly managed. New employees at every turn (high turnover?)!!! The high rates are a product of the 2nd rate Water Park that is open limited hours. I would recommend the C'mon Inn or the Holiday Inn Express as quality options for your lodging needs. They are also located across many options for food & shopping!

Was a little surprised when we checked in to find that thay have a $200 security deposit requirement, repayable when you check out. Haven't seen this sort of thing before ! Presumably they get some rough guests.

The room was clean and well furnished but I will make two comments...

1. The bathroom did not have an exhaust fan

2. The air conditioner was noisy.

I found all the working staff to be the polite, honest, hard working, North Dakotan people I've grown to love. The management is a completely another story. Their accountantability rivals that of a Mexican 2 star resort. They were quick to assume that guests are idiots that don't know what the norm is, as far what is acceptable service. Forget Wi-Fi , you won't be able to surf web, conduct internet business or Skype loved ones. She(manager) rudely insisted it was on our end even after we said that we tried on multiple different phones and laptops. We also met other guests with the same issues. This place is supposed to be a conference center...what a joke. You are invisible if management sees standing at the front desk.
The one star is for the great staff(everybody else wearing polyester).

We booked a kids theme suite room with water park package and were very disappointed to find out after we had booked that the water park is only open during the evening hours which was no good for us as we didn't arrive until 8pm and then had to leave before 4pm the next day when it would open again. That was a huge waste of money that would have been nice to know in advance.

We had room 209 which faces in the waterpark (torture for my kids who weren't able to actually use the park but no fault of the hotel) and we were shocked that there were no black out curtains or really any curtains at all other then sheer white which did nothing to block the pool lights. It was so bright in our room at night that I was unable to sleep well.

The biggest disappointment for me was the very POOR internet connection. We were able to connect once when we very first got there and then from about 9pm on we could not keep a connection and the front desk was no help. We still could not connect in the morning so we tried going out in the hall and we could get great access if we stood right at the door or in the bathroom but not on the desk or bed in the bedroom. Not having internet access would have stopped me from booking this hotel as I run a business and need to stay online as much as possible (no data phone in the USA).

For $173 I was very un-satisfied.

Room Tip: do not get a room that looks into the waterpark (not sure if all of the rooms do or not)

We stayed there a few times. Awesome rooms. The water park is very good and my kids just love it, cause it is family friendly yet and has guards who ensure the safety of the visitors. It is a nice 2 day family retreat. Would recommend it to anybody.
