Decided to try this hotel which is part of the choice hotel chain. You have the option to use the sleepinn amenities such as the Dakota super slides or if you want the breakfast at the sleep inn. Rooms are very spacious. I have stayed there twice now and only complaint I would have is that there is a little bit of maintenance to be done such as unbolted shower rods that were pulled out of wall or just general things that were missing from room such as an ice bucket. Would recommend to families as there is a full fridge with freezer in your room. And cooking supplies and fixtures

The staff were very friendly and smiley, the room was CLEAN and up to date. The breakfast was about the best hotel breakfast I've had, and kept replenishing so nothing was ever empty! Great visit, will definitely book again!

This is a nice clean hotel. Room nice size, nice kitchenette, bed comfy, midsize fridge/freezer nice touch. staff friendly, nice little bar, swimming area nice, double slides in pool, agree 3rd floor quiet. Recommend staying here.

Just stayed the night here for a little getaway with my son. Location was great. Near shopping and some good restaurants. Girl at check in was nice, and even asked us what are preference was as far as floors. I just said quiet will be good. It was quiet because my son kept asking if we were the only ones in the hotel. Rooms were very accommodating and beds were comfy. Definitely will be our choice of hotel when in Minot.

Staff was so nice and efficient. Room was roomy and CLEAN. BEAUTIFUL. I wish every hotel was as good as this. Bed was sooo comfortable. I slept great. A➕💯. I recommend this. And I used my points. CHOICE Privileges is the best.

Wow! The staff is amazing here ! The general manager, Reonda, goes above and beyond the call of duty ! I'd follow her wherever she goes. BUT the third floor had a strange smell in the hallway. I thought it is kind of weird .

What a great motel for a long stay. Full kitchen with pots, pans, dishes etc (unlike my place) clean and comfortable rooms. Comfortable bed. Within walking distance of a nice mall, and plenty of food options close by.

The room layout is great and the overall hotel amenities super! Room was clean with a little "Thank you for Popping In" message attached to microwave popcorn lying on the beds when we arrived - nice touch! I traveled with my daughter and two of her friends during the busy ND Class B Boys basketball tournament weekend. I was impressed with the Sleep Inn (attached to mall) referring us to this, their "Sister" property, when they were full. I would possibly consider staying at this facility again over the very busy and hectic Sleep Inn due to room size, cost. With this I need to make management aware of one small tip that might make future travelers more comfortable upon check-in: Stress to your cleaning staff to "note" things that may need maintenance staff attention when they are cleaning! We had a light bulb out in the bathroom at first flip of the switch and the sink faucet wasn't working and the water was less than a trickle. Another thing that cleaning staff should've noticed was the toilet continuously running! We did have to call maintenance because of the faucet - we didn't really feel for the cost of the rooms we should have to wash our hands in the shower for the entire stay - yes it was THIS bad and shame on cleaning staff for not reporting this. When I checked out I mentioned to the front staff that I loved their facility, beds were comfortable and the breakfast was delicious, but pointed out that they probably should have maintenance go back to the room and check out the toilet to avoid the next traveler having to go through the same process of taking the toilet cover off and having to push the plug down after every toilet flush. YES, I would recommend this hotel because I am a true reviewer and probably just had the only room with "issues" but this could've easily been avoided if cleaning staff would be more aware of these things and reporting them when needed. Location was great!

Stayed here for my second time from Nov 10 - Dec 24, 2016 All of the staff were exceptional. This hotel is kept clean, the breakfast selections were a little less this year, but were varied every day and there were still plenty of selections. If visiting Minot this located next to the Dakota Square Mall and close to many restaurants, K-Mart, Walmart and short access to many of the Medical facilities and highways. Location, location, location !!!!

We stay at this hotel when ever we are in Minot. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Whether you are staying several days or just one night you can always expect hospitality that goes above and beyond.
