Nice stay

The hotel was very nice. The room was clean and very comfortable. It was very quiet, which was extremely nice beings I just had surgery a couple days prior. Loved the restaurant/bar attached..they had great hot dogs! My husband tried out the hot tub and it wasn't as hot as he would like, but it was 'good enough'. I would recommend this hotel...and the price was 'just right' for my wallet!

Awesome location, room service, bar

On the edge of the most hopping part of downtown Fargo, so easy walking to sights, restaurants, night life, but the hotel itself is quiet. The room service menu is not to be missed, and the bar located on the far side of the hotel is awesome, great contemporary crowd and hipster/dive/watering hole atmosphere. Fargo is surprisingly cool, and the downtown HoJo makes a tempered contribution to the great scene.

Simply Perfect

Fast friendly check in, Super Comfortable Bed. Heat worked great and shower had adequate flow followed by a soft towel. Breakfast in the morning was another pleasant surprise with a variety of items to please anyone. All this at an affordable price. Got in too late to enjoy the pool or hot tub, but they looked outstanding. I will go out of my way to stay here again. I would plan a weekend getaway with my wife and stay here, yes Fargo!

Hospital testing

This is a perfect hotel for someone going to Sanford Medical Center...it is within walking distance. The staff was friendly, breakfast was very good with healthy food options and our room was very clean. The pool looked lovely and bathing suits will be in our bags for our next stay. This certainly met our needs and we will be booking a room again next week.

Good location downtown Fargo

Very average motel, very dated decor and little to enjoy on amenities. Worst ever when I discovered no bath towels in the bathroom after taking a shower!

Just fine

There are plenty of amenities and the place seems to be well taken care. To me, it felt like a nice motel. The finer points of a hotel aren't really there (and the building itself isn't much to look at), but, then again, many nice hotels I've stayed at fell short on things like breakfast or the in-room microwave and fridge. The front desk staff were mostly very helpful and considerate. We needed to check in early and they let us since something was available.

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.
