Reviewed February 9, 2014

I chose this hotel because of all the good reviews. However, after arriving we found a bunch of problems with the hotel. The room was very dusty, as if it hadn't been cleaned in a while. That could be overlooked. Then upon our horror after a long day of enjoying Fargo, we decided to go into the hot tub. Put simply, it was disgusting. A layer of film surrounded the hot tub and the odor from it hurt our lungs. They say that the water is yellow because of the iron in the water but that's just laziness since there are many products out there that could filter out the water's soil deposits. They have a saline pool which is fine because they've been proven to be as effective as chlorine. The pool is in the same nasty condition as the hot tub. The bathroom needs cleaning. The walls are very thin. We could hear people coming and going in the parking lot while we were trying to sleep and people in the rooms around us as well. The coffee pot was disgusting and the microwave was broken. We couldn't get refunded for a night that we couldn't stay through and decided to stick it out and stay until our reservation was up. Our room key also stopped working a few times a well. The staff was nice and helpful but the overall uncleanliness was disappointing. The small things can be overlooked if trying to save a buck but we're not staying here again.
