Recent guest reviews

My new home away for a few months at the NPI in Minot. Excellent service, great spacious rooms, wonderful breakfast, and great rate make this hotel the best in Minot. I have everything I need to make my long term stay comfortable. Great place for families with kids as they have a large indoor pool and spa. Nice fitness center if you need some exercise. Rooms are newly decorated.

Business trip to Minot and stayed at the Northern Plains Inn once again and the rooms, service are always outstanding. Close to shopping and many places to eat, the Northern Plains Inn is the place to stay in Minot. Very competitive rates are much better than any other property in Minot.

Outstanding property in Minot, close to shopping, and many places to eat, the Northern Plains Inn is a high quality property with an excellent focus on customer service. Rooms are spacious and newly refurbished, wonderful full breakfast, and a great indoor pool and spa, fitness room. Best value in Minot by far!

Room was outstanding. We've travelled a lot in the last 2 years and I wasn't sure what to expect since they weren't a chain hotel, boy was I pleasantly surprised. There was nothing bad or neutral about this property, breakfast is abundant, rooms and bathrooms were clean and fresh. We didn't use the pool or hot tub but it was always in use when we walked by. It's a spacious hotel with plenty of parking and they accommodated our pets with no problems at all. We are coming back up in the spring and this will be the place we stay. Also the mall is a quick walk behind the hotel and Applebee's is right next to the parking lot for a quick late night snack. You couldn't ask for anything better.

Beautiful hotel, best breakfast around, wonderful amenities including a refrigerator. Rooms are nice size, clean and we'll maintained. Great indoor pool and hot tub. Close to unlimited choices in food and shopping. Great VALUE.

Friendly Staff, decent rooms and quite clean. Pool area is very nice, but I found the pool cold. Hot tub is excellent. Free hot breakfast is a nice touch, and the location is great with walking distance to restaurants. Good Parking.

Everything was top notch and you can't beat the price. All things considered dollar for dollar, best place i've ever stayed. It's located on route 2 and close to many restaurants. Large breakfast room with all the usual offerings. Nice pool and hot tub. Locally owned.

We did an impromptu trip Minot this weekend and I made a last minute reservation at this hotel because it was rated well and our price was $63/night before taxes. It was well worth the price. Room was a little musty smelling at first but the AC took the smell out & was massively COLD - which is how my husband likes it. We didn't check out the breakfast or the pool, but the room was nice. Pillows were soft & fluffy. Bed was on the firm side but comfortable. I'd stay there again, especially for the price. And it is right next door to Applebee's & Olive Garden. So very convenient location. For the price I'd rate it 5 stars, but as an overall, compared to all price range hotels, I'd say it's a 4 star. Would stay again.

Northern Plains Inn is conveniently located on Hwy 2. It's an easy "off/on" from the highway. The property is near several restaurants and shopping. The property is up to date inside and out. Clean is important to me and so is comfort. This motel is both. The breakfast has a good variety of offerings both hot and cold food and drink.

This motel was very accommodating as they allowed us to leave our vehicle in their parking lot while we were on a trip via Amtrak for two weeks. They did a very good job. I would recommend this motel to anyone traveling for fun or business.
