“Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The Grand International is a wonderful place to stay. We had a suite and it was huge. Very clean. Bed was the best ever. The resturant was very, very good and had an incredible view. Staff was wonderful and anxious to make our stay comfortable. We were there for a Ducks Unlimited event. They went out of their way to make sure everything went seamlessly. The meal that night was awesome. Looking forward to the opportunity to stay again!

Room Tip: If you need a lot of room, a frig, and a micro wave, the suites are perfect.

My wife and I stay here when we fly out of Minot Airport. Conveniently located. Very nice, clean rooms. Beds were very comfortable. The Primo Restaurant has a great menu with tasty food. A little over priced due to the current oil boom in ND but then again everything in NW ND is overpriced.

I enjoyed everything about our stay, unfortunately there is not enough blankets/comforters. we had to turn the Heater on and even then i still felt cold. other then that awesome stay i would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Do not get a room where the main windows are next to the pool, to noisy pools hours are to long.

Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, outside of the blanket issue. My housekeeping department joins me in our appreciation for you bringing this to our attention. We have placed additional blankets in every room closet, for those guests who prefer the additional bedding. We hope that you will gives us the opportunity to serve you in your future visits to the Magic City.

I flew into town recently for business and was booked here. Due to some winter weather delays, I got in pretty late.

Luckily, the hotel is visible from the airport, a 2 minute drive away from the rental lot. The room was well furnished and spacious, basically a suite. The restaurant on-site is convenient and pretty tasty.

Not sure what the rates are as someone else booked it for me, but a good option if passing through town and a great option if you have an early flight out/late flight in.

Room Tip: If you are close to the pool, the chlorine scent is very strong.

We had a nice room the night before our flight out. We booked this as a Park 'n Fly hotel. Its' proximity to the airport made it a nice spot not to have to wait long for the van to take you to and from the hotel. Decent price for the added bonus of leaving our car there for 11 days. 24 hour pick-up/drop-off to/from the airport. We left our vehicle in the back row in the back of the hotel which was well lighted so we weren't too concerned over leaving our vehicle there. As we were getting up super early for our flight they nicely put us in a distant room at our request so we wouldn't bother too many people.

Didn't really try any of the amenities of the hotel, so can't comment on that, it was purely a park 'n fly hotel for us.

We stayed here when we flew out and back to Minot. They have complimentary parking for the flight out. They have a shuttle that takes you to the airport and picks you up. The rooms are spacious and very updated. The beds a re very comfy. Clean, quiet. Would stay again if we fly out of Minot. Breakfast in the restaurant was good but a bit pricey! Service throughout the hotel is very good. Huge pool and pool area. Great for kids!

Room Tip: Cheap rooms!!!

I stayed at this hotel while on a road trip through Montana and North Dakota. My family had stayed here numerous times when I was a kid, so I had lots of fond memories of the place. I had read some of the reviews previously and was a bit concerned about staying here. When I checked-in, I went to see the room prior to getting my luggage from the car. I'm glad I did. My first few rooms were actually hospitality suites that convert into a room, with the bed being a Murphy bed (probably not the most comfortable). The next room didn't smell that great. Finally I requested and was given a 2 queen room poolside, which was okay. Apparently all the single king bed rooms are either hospitality suites with a Murphy bed, or a 1 bedroom room, so be careful when you are booking. The room was okay, but had a definite lack of furniture. The TV was tiny, but did have a wide range of channels. Internet and parking were free, and the internet speed was good. There is also 2 computers in the lobby that are available for use. The room service had large portions and tasted good, however they added a gratuity to the price upon delivery, which was not stated in the menu or anywhere and was actually written onto the bill in the tip portion (this is a little sketchy). The pool and hot tub were nice and relaxing. The one really great thing about the room was the bed - very comfortable. The price is quite expensive at $140/night. There are comparable hotels around the area that are the same price or cheaper, and usually offer a free breakfast of some sort. I was a bit disappointed in what this hotel has become in the years since our family stayed there. It was a Best Western then; now it is an independent. I would highly recommend looking around before booking, and asking to see your room first before settling in. I have read many issues about the old section of the hotel, which is apparently the 6 floor tower area. My room was in the 3 floor newer section. The 5 floor tower is also somewhat newer and should be okay as well. Do your research before booking, and see your room before accepting.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newer section, and look at your room first before settling in.
