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!

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.
