First of all - avoid Williston if you possibly can. The oil boom here has created a mess of a city. Trucks, trucks, trucks - hundreds (no exaggeration). And dirt everywhere. Not enough places to eat - everything crowded. We could not wait to get out of town.
As for the Missouri Flats Inn. High price - average product. The room was small - no table and chairs. Old tube TV, very small vanity (outside shower and toilet area). There was a desk but no light by it, so you have to work in the dark at a computer, etc.
This was a queen room for a price higher than we usually pay for a king room. The bed sank in the middle, which meant two people sleeping in it were struggling to stay uphill all night. Pillows were flat.
On the plus side, there were plenty of towels, they left extra blankets on the clothes rack, and the room was clean (if a bit used - especially in the bathroom - which had old fixtures, mold in the tub corner and some scuff marks, etc.)
The hotel is quiet but the AC somewhat nosier than other places we have stayed.
Continental breakfast was really sad - tired looking fruit and bakery.
Front desk check in girl could have cared less. Not particularly friendly.
I don't know what else is available. I usually check Tripadvisor before I book. Maybe it was all that was available. It is in the AAA travel book.
I would look eslewhere if I were staying in Williston - but then again, I would avoid Williston altogether.
(Having said that - don't miss the North Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park - it is amazing!)
