“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

I have stayed in many AmericInn hotels and have been extremely satisfied, but that was not the case with this one. I felt it needed a good cleaning, the elevator was especially bad, and it seemed "tired". The breakfast area was probably my biggest concern. All of the tables were dirty and the serving area was not tended to, with spills and crumbs on the counters. I realize that it is located in a seasonal tourist area, hence the higher cost, but I expected the same standards as I've seen in other AmericInn hotels.

We stayed one night last week at this hotel. It was very clean and the room was nicely decorated. We had an early morning, 2 hour trail ride the next day and asked for a late check out taking into consideration the busy time of year. The owner was at the desk and quickly said we could do that. It was very nice of him. The only thing that was troubling was the lack of coffee in the morning. Otherwise, a great place to stay.

This hotel could be so much better. The room was okay, a little on the small and cluttered side. Not much they could do on the issue of being small, but the closet they have near the door is in the way. The beds were okay and it was nice they had a fridge and microwave in the room. When taking a shower, noticed that the tile had not been cleaned recently and wiped it down with toilet paper and it was dirty. The breakfast was seriously lacking. They had biscuits and gravy but the biscuits were cold, which makes them hard to swallow. Eggs did not look good, so I just grabbed some yogurt and called it good. I may stay here again only if all other options were exhausted.

They should have a much better rating than 2 stars. You might get a property like this in a metropolitan area for less money but they are giving it to you in Medora, ND which is pretty much the middle of nowhere. Because the winter is so severe, the hotel is not open year round so they have to recoup their investment. We've stayed twice in AmericInns and both were in places that are out of the way. Thank you AmericInn for bringing comfort to the wilderness. Beats the heck out of the Bunkhouse.

I thought a national chain motel would be the best bet for Medora, but now I'm not so sure. So many little annoyances here. No luggage stands in the room. Lobby coffee pot was either empty of cold when I tried it. Breakfast was pretty simple.There was something that looked like eggs but was suspiciously in the shape of squares. The front desk was never attended and I had to ring the bell to get someone out there. I found out it was because the desk people were also running the motel laundry. One morning the maid didn't leave any coffee so I had to get some from the front desk. The clerk gave me extra, which I put in the room next to the coffee pot. Next day the maid took the surplus coffee packages and left me the prescribed two. She also took the soap and shampoo I had opened and left in the shower, but left us no new containers of these. On the plus side, the room layout was great with the sink outside the bathroom. We liked the room and the furnishings. But the staff....

I had a conference in Medora and I had to stay somewhere for two nights. My co-workers had negative reviews about other hotels in the area (there aren't many) so it kind of just left this one as a "it can't be as bad as the others." But this place was really nice. The staff was helpful and friendly (for the most part) and of course the town is so small that no matter where you stay you can walk anywhere in town.

Room Tip: I stayed in the suite right next to the vending machines, but there is a bench right outside that wi...

I spent one night at this hotel. Early check-in (2;00) was smooth and friendly, room was clean and comfortable. After some internet difficulty, I moved rooms and had a fast reliable connection. The hotel is convenient to all Medora has to offer. I think the price is higher than it should be, but there aren't many options in this tiny town, so they can get high dollar.
