Tournament weekend

The staff was very friendly. The pool area was a nice big open area complete with a 2 foot pool for young ones and a 3-10 foot pool for the swimmers. My kids loved the pool! We noticed the carpet in the room was a little dirty as the sole of our socks ended up a little on the dark side. Beds were clean and comfortable and the continental breakfast was tasty. Also centrally located, which was nice.

close to downtown good and bad

great location near downtown shops, but clientele tends to be loud and don't expect to get to sleep until well after bar close on the weekends - room was too noisy for me - from a loud refrigerator to an a/c unit that would constantly turn off an on as the temp changed - i prefer a constant fan noise - especially to drown out drunken idiots in the parking lot or hallway (this happened both friday and saturday night). i was very envious of the radisson down the street - the high rise would keep you away from street level noise.

where's my room?

The parking lot was packed and the clerk didn't give us very good directions to our room. We ended up in the wrong building and had to relocate the car to another parking lot. The bar downstairs was fun and the service was great. I saw then why the lot was full. The room was clean and quiet. I'd recommend this hotel, but make sure you get thorough directions to the closest lot to avoid dragging your bags around in the cold.

Great fit for our occasional Fargo trips

Howard Johnson's convenient downtown location; friendly and helpful staff; clean, comfortable rooms; basic amenities (WiFi, good breakfast, small fitness center - though some machines weren't working this time) - all at a great price - are a terrific fit for our occasional Fargo visits to see our new granddaughter and family. This was our second stay in three months. They provide exactly what meets our needs, and have earned our repeat business.

Make sure to visit the Viking replica ship at the Hjemkomst Center across the river in Moorhead. It is a real gem.

Nights stay before flight

Liked the pool and spa. The bar and grill had a great dessert but a little pricey. The beds were very uncomfortable. Breakfast was great. The price wa reasonable.

Very good for the price!

At the desk, Mathew was very helpful even though the room keys kept loosing their code. The room was good; comfy bed, pillows too big for me (forgot my own), good TV with HBO, and the room had a coffee maker (got to have my morning Joe). The pool area was roomy and hot tub felt good on the old bones. No noise, I slept all night, the free breakfast was good, and checkout was a breeze! I'd stay there again.

Ok

The staff was amazing and super nice/helpful. The room was clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast was ok, didn’t offer a lot of options. I personally feel that the price was too high for the overall stay and amenities. I have paid less and got more (better more not just more).
