On our way to Fargo

Got there in the evening and left the following morning. It was just a pit stop to our destination. The bed was not comfortable, felt like we were sleeping on cement.

Fits the expectations

It was just what I have expected. The price fits to what you get. The location is quite good if you're with a car. The supermarket is just across the street. All staff are very friendly, helpful and nice. The TV did not work, but id didn't matter to me as I've had a laptop. The WiFi is free and works well!!!

Clean and helpful

My stay was great. [...] messed up my reservation - but the owner of the hotel personally helped me. My couldn't get the net on my laptop either, and they rebooted their system and got me on their hotel network. I had work to finish and they also allowed me to checkout late. The owner was there and is working hard to make a go of it and that impresses me. He is doing a good job as I saw many guests - happy.

It's a 2-star hotel for a great price!

We stopped here because we needed a cheap place to sleep for the night. We got in late, I believe around midnight. The staff was friendly and helpful (I'm not sure I would have been that friendly if someone came in so late! Haha). It's obviously not a 5-star hotel, it's a 2-star place and you can tell. But our room was clean, beds weren't too uncomfortable, and they had some good ol' 2-star coffee for me in the morning! And it's really close to the Red Pepper East, which is a definite perk for me when I want to grab a grinder! I'll be staying here again as I don't tend to hang out in my hotel room when I'm visiting Grand Forks.

go somewhere else

no amenities. good place to stay if you're a truck driver and need a couple of hours of shut eye, but not if you're looking for some restful sleep. bad beds, bad smell. but front desk staff were very friendly.

UNBELIEVABLE!

Toilet was broken and staff got very rude and snotty and argued that they fixed it, but when I got back to my room later in the evening it did not flush, so I had to borrow a pliers from the front desk and fix it myself!!!!
