The staff seemed new but they tried to make my stay comfortable. I can see why people have given it bad reviews but I can say it appears to be because of the guest and how they behave. I didnt expect that they would turn people away based off apperances so if seedy people were around the staff tried there best to keep them under control.. I also didnt expect it to be a quiet family hotel since it is in the same parking lot as a sports bar and casino.

It was coveniant when I did go out for drinks since I wasnt drinking and driving and I liked that there is a kmart in back of it, a grocery store across the street and a great chinese buffet restaraunt also in the same parking lot.

Over all it is a great at getting what I paid for. I wasnt looking to pay $100 a night in a lavish hotel. I was looking to just stay for a while and not have empty pockets.

Room Tip: Check your room as soon as you check in because they are remodeling so if there is something unsatis...

I believe there is something fishy going on if anyone actually had been to this motel the idea that it is acceptable to anyone is a complete joke. Please ask to see the rooms before you book. I was astonished to find out what type a place this is. The bathroom door was some sort of plastic sheet that didn't offer much in the way of privacy. Luckily I was alone.

Room Tip: haggle until you get hostel like rates. That is what you are really paying for.

I went to Minot again and decided to visit the same place.
Surprise: the Hotel is getting better and better.
The bar in front also has been "cleaned". No more smoking inside ! Good choice.
Between the Hotel and the bar I had fun, without risking my driving licence

Made reservations way in advance to have three rooms (one of them a pet room) during fair time. We all showed up for the Kid Rock concert to find that the hotels computer had gone down and they had lost all the reservations. I was expecting nothing but problems however the manager stiepped up and honored our reservations, took care of the whole situation and gave us three very nice rooms. Couldn't have been happier with how all turned out. In all, it's not the Hilton but the price was good and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I'll stay there again any time I'm in Minot.

yes the rooms area good price, they are next to a bar and still being worked on. I had no problem staying there for a week with my wife. I actually made money staying there helping people get there cars running, if they were not drunk and made $300

Room Tip: just ask for what you need in a room and they will try and help
