Townhouse Hotel Grand Forks

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff were very nice, the location was close, even within walking distance of the attractions I was in town for so that was also a plus. The room was decent size, no odor or dirtiness, everything was in working order EXCEPT the air conditioner. There was a box fan in the room that made it tolerable for the night, but I would have loved some AC in the room!

Enjoyed the location close to down town and the entertainment of the evening......

your site says the they have an exersize gym when ask they said I could go to the y and show my key card to get in I was recovering from knee surgery and did want to use the equipment and not travel to do it the room was nice and staff was good the fact that they didn't have continental breakfast is a drawback for the price

Came to Grand Forks for the annual Mud Run. Spent the weekend. Guesthouse is in a great location downtown, close to great restaurants and bars. Guesthouse has its own restaurant and bar, too. The breakfast menu is really affordable and the staff in the lounge are very friendly. They do a great job of making one feel welcome. The location and the amenities--nice pool, good restaurant/bar, friendly staff--go a long way in making up for the trashed room. This time it was a broken counter top above the toilet. Great location & staff, but poor room quality.

Older hotel with the characteristics of a warm, cozy environment.

We arrived at 3:15 and did not get our room until 3:45. There is a 3:00 check in. Room was very hot and no control for the room. Outside security door which was 8 feet from our room door was broke and left unlocked for our entire stay. Sauna could definitely use some maintenance. We asked for a fan for the second night and it looked like it came out of a dumpster. The only thing we liked was the location.

Loud, people drinking by the pool until late, not a good sleep, kids were running around pool unattended, a kid smacked a hard wet ball at me, while I was reading, my grand daughter swam only for while, she said there was a lot of junk at the bottom of pool. We lost a key, when we looked under bed there was garbage under there. When I made complaint, clerk said "ok" then walked away. Rude.

it was a good stay, nothing fancy. Hot tub was out of order during our stay.

Really needs updating

Other than waiting for the front desk staff to check me in, my stay was enjoyable. I would stay there again since it is located close to downtown.

The hotel was very pleasant for a short stay. The rooms were clean, the service was efficient, and the hotel restaurant/sports bar was affable. It is walking distance to all areas of downtown Grand Forks. I would recommend this hotel for a family with young children, with the indoor pool and mini golf. Otherwise, the noise of children playing in the pool early in the morning might be distracting.

Cleaning staff did not vacum the room daily.

The staff at the Guesthouse were fabulous. Very helpful and very friendly. The attached restaurant and bar was great and provided a shuttle bus to and from the Alerus Centre free of charge. Can't compliment the staff enough - they were wonderful.

I liked that the Guesthouse had rooms that open to the pool and sitting area so if one of my kids forgot something in the room he could go back and get it and I could watch him while I watched my other child in the pool. The restaurant food was great but it was not open all day (closed in the afternoon). I liked that the pool/hot tub was open until 11:00 pm. The money slot did not work for the arcade games so my kids could not play the games. I liked that the room was spacious for many suit cases and bags and toys. I prefered the quiet over being right next to a mall. I will go back for sure.

We choose the Guesthouse hotel mainly because of the pool and mini golf on the premises. We also visited the restaurant and bar which was roomy and had a reasonable menu. The room was very nice and housekeeping had left the air on so the room was nice and cool on a very hot day.

Hello, Ashley. Thank for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for mentioning our location. We're the only hotel in historic downtown within walking distance to all theaters, restaurants, bars, boutiques, government offices and Cabela's store. We're also close to University of North Dakota. re: aid conditioning units. We replaced most ac units. We're waiting for the remaining new ac units to be installed in the next few days. Just as a reminder, we have dropped Red Roof Inn flag on Sept 25th, 2017. Our new name is "TownHouse Hotel Grand Forks" We hope to see you again soon.
