Walking distance To the centre where the North Dakota fighting hawks play football

The hotel was nice. The water park was fun. Garnonzo’s eatery was a little over priced. They gave me the wrong room, but made up for it with free waterpark wrist bands. Overall, We will go back. The waterpark is good for younger children.

I love that this property has lots of room and they do well to space out guests during these COVID times.

We rent a jacuzzi suite, what I didn’t realize it was a themed room! What we had was more of a tropical setting! So very well put together! Had a wonderful stay!

There was pizza left in the fridge and had a light bulb burnt out, and some hair scrunchies next to one of the beds

Worth the price every time. Hotel is very clean and has comfortable beds.

I liked that there were restaurants and a water park in the facility. I did not like that the hotel is so run down! Really needs updating! Surprises me that they have let this hotel get so run down!

Stayed there many times. Nice restaurants, staff nice. Hockey in town elevators down not good!! Otherwise fine.

Overall good amenities, my only issue was the PTAC unit(heater/ac) was very noisy.

The shuttle to the hockey game was nice. Water park was fun.

Great destination, had the Dakota themed room with Jacuzzi. Very cool.

Like that the Alerus Center is attached along with restaurants.

Could not get good internet the pool was closed could not get on their business center computers they are linked to Canada? They don't know what country they are in apparently? The staff was absolutely no help NEVER AGAIN.

We love staying at the Canad Inn in Grand Forks when we go for a UND Fighting Hawk football game!!

Great location if you're attending a UND Football game or an event at the Alerus Conference Center. Beautiful decor, but overpriced. For hotel guests, the fabulous water park is $9 to ride the water slides OR you get a free bracelet to come into the water park, swim in the lazy river and pool and enjoy the hot tub without riding slides. BREAKFAST IS NOT INCLUDED NO MATTER WHAT YOUR RESERVATION SAYS. Most guests who have posted hotel feedback say that if you complain to the hotel staff about "no breakfast", they will give you a $20 voucher to the restaurant - true, and they gave us this voucher! Breakfast is $3.99 per person - a fine value - but after we ate x 3 people = $12, the restaurant TOOK our $20 voucher - no change or rolling credit to the following morning. Complained a second time to front desk, they handed us "Breakfast Buffet" coupons that they had behind the front desk the entire time and could have given us in the first place. It amazes me with the number of online review complaints about miscommunicated "free breakfast" that you are still charging $3.99 and giving vouchers and still making dissatisfied customers. One more note about the water park: not much attention is paid to cleaning up tables / dirty pool towels at peak times. We were there on the UND Homecoming weekend with a full hotel, and lifeguards were having a hard time keeping up. There is NO lifeguard at the hot tub, so kids were jumping in like cannonballs and nobody was there to police it.
