This place must be judged very high in both the facility and the personnel. If you're in Minot to do lots of shopping, Souris Valley Suites is very nicely located. The manager (David) is an exceptional person -- extremely pleasant, facilitating, professional, and endearing. He made certain we were well acquainted with the facility and what they had to offer (the "Managers Reception" is a great idea!). He was readily approachable and answered all our questions with a smile. The breakfast had many options which would please most people's palate. The lady in charge was courteous and made certain the various foods were fresh and containers filled. The breakfast/bar/lounge was quite large and kept very clean. The facility itself was exceptionally well-appointed in terms of décor and amenities (they even had a covered BBQ area out back). Our room was of course spotless and we were taken quite aback at the quality and variety of the utensils and appliances in our room -- cookware, a full-sized fridge, counter-top range, silverware, and glassware (including wine glasses and a corkscrew). They even provided the coffee for the coffee maker and some popcorn for the convection microwave! The bed was comfortable and was neither too firm nor "saggy". Despite the large number of guests staying there at this time, there was no discernible or disturbing noise coming from the rooms surrounding us or in the hallway, allowing for a restful night's sleep. The bathroom had a great showerhead with good water pressure and the counter space was more than ample. Attention to detail was everywhere, even to the point of ensuring that the screws in all the cover plates were aligned (slots were all vertical!!). There was ample free parking. Someone put a lot of thought into ensuring a guest's needs are fully met in a most pleasant atmosphere. Their daily rates are very reasonable and there were no "surprises" at checkout. We would have given this hotel a 5 star rating except that there was no pool or hot tub area and, perhaps more importantly, a limited number of rooms that could be discounted (eg. AARP, AAA, Seniors, etc). This "glitch" in no way reflects on the personnel in this facility but perhaps something "upper management" in their head office could look at and attend to. Would we stay there again or recommend this as a great place to stay? ABSOLUTELY!! In fact as soon as we know our next travel date, we'll be booking with them (hopefully early enough to get a discounted room but the price is reasonable as is!). Pretty much has a large "Wow" factor!!
