First I'd like to say that the front desk staff are great, really friendly, but I don't know if it makes up for the poor way the rooms are straightened up during your stay.
We may give the hotel another try if we found another good deal but there are so many new hotels in Minot that it would depend.
Here are the problems, we stay in hotels frequently & I know they don't change the bedding but the beds have always been made. I didn't notice my husband had left his wet towels on the bed and housekeeping never made it so when we got back to the room the bed was still a mess & the side where the towels sat all day was damp (hubby got that side since it was his mess)(but if housekeeping had made the bed they would have seen the towels). Plus, they put fresh towels in the bathroom so they had to have know the other ones were somewhere in the room. There was an empty roll of toilet paper that didn't get changed, we had to phone down to get a new roll of paper but since the front desk person was the only one working I had to go get it.
The water pressure in the shower was bad (but I don't think the hotel can control this). The water didn't even spray straight out, it curved down because it wasn't that strong, I had to stand in the first 2 feet of the tub (the tiles are 12" squares so I could tell how far the water sprayed out).
The pool was freezing, the kids even found it cold & they love to swim & don't usually care.
The hotel is in a nice location, central to the mall & restaurants. It is very new so in great shape. Rooms seem a little bit smaller than some other comparable hotels. I didn't like the set-up of the bathroom,(just my preference though) the sink is outside; I can't even imagine the germs on the bathroom door knob since you can't wash your hands before you leave the restroom.
The elevators are really slow as well.
Overall the hotel is average, with some housekeeping adjustments it would be better. Maybe since it is so new, they are just working out some of the kinks.
