Recent guest reviews

Breakfast room and morning desk person at front desk were cold as ice . the lady for the night shift before the morning people came in was great Old hotel however it was clean. Slept great. If your in the hospitality business that is not the way to act your personnel issues should be put aside and give each person staying a pleasant experience.

I like the pool side rooms, you can order pizza and have a party with muliple pool side rooms rented. I love their breakfast, yes you have to pay but you can order omlets with what ever you want on them. The slide is nice to go down and late before it closes you can turn off the water in the slide and climb up it.

The front desk staff, Iesha, was very friendly and accommodating. I wanted a quiet room. She let me know an event was going on at the hotel, gave me a room at the back corner, first floor, as there is no elevator and im in a wheelchair. Last night was silent. Awesome pillow top beds, whole room clean, nice bed linens. Towels are well used, but clean and white. Carperts are fine. Few mini spots where molding could be replaced, tub plug too..but did i say...$50/night for a week long stay! With a free breakfast buffet! Havent tried that yet..because it was so quiet, I slept till 10am and missed it! I got a 2 queen room and it accomodates my wheelchair without being a handicap accessible room. So, it roomy. View? A parking lot full of snow piles, lol, its Williston! Awesome wifi connection. Indoor pool with a water slide, for those with kids, great for a winter break.

We stayed here 2 times now because of an event we attended. On phone they kept telling me rooms available and then when tried to book it she said they weren’t. They said they were so booked up, only room left was a suite. So for 2 nights we paid well over 200$. (Without saying exact pricing) The parking lot was never over half full over 3 days! Our room was big, but in a non smoking room it stunk like a smoking room. Their rates are extremely high for their whole building being so old. Rooms clearly need to be remodeled, and the entrance doors and windows all had big cracks, broken, and not lockable. Both years we’ve gone, the hot tub was completely out of order. There were no clean pool towels for 3 days. The pool room and water were freezing. There’s no working food vending machines, and very limited beverages for sale. The only nice thing I can say is, they held our event so we didn’t need to drive, and the staff while we stayed there was extremely kind. The kitchen and bar staff were awesome and the food we ate from the restaurant was great!

Someone likened this place to a rest stop for truckers, that's not a bad description. Rooms lack for amenities.Towels in the bathroom are just a tad better than the ones used in car washes to dry your vehicle. Wifi is not very good. Within walking distance for airport. Front desk people were very kind in arranging for a shuttle back to the airport so we wouldn't have to deal with the freeze.

Left that night. Wouldn't stay. Didn't ask for refund just wanted hand sanitizer, lady at counter cold as fish acted as I was a nuisance rather than customer that was okay I don't like many people either but I'm not in hospitality business. Room was disgustingly grimy, I'm a trucker and this room is the worse I've ever not stayed at. No refund don't want one just want to wash this hotel off me

I have a few complaints for this hotel. I understand that since the oil boom this hotel has been used frequently... with that being said it is heading in the wrong direction when it comes to updates. The rooms are well work in and do need to be updated or fixed. My major reason for the low score is... the roaches... I killed two my second night there. There is always more than one or two. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk I was asked if I wanted a different room. That's it.. no I'm sorry this happened.. what else can we do for you?? I will never stay here again.

We live here and drive past everyday. My 5 year old LOVES the pool area so we stayed here on a Saturday night. The front desk informed us that waterside was broken, however we had no clue that the hot tubs were not working. The room was decent and clean.

I made the mistake of booking this room online with When I got to the hotel, they had no reservation in their system, even though gave me a "confirmation number". The hotel itself was basic. Carpet and décor was dated, but staff and location was wonderful. Downside, no elevator. Upside, lounge was spacious and had great prices and food.

Some of the rooms are in poor shape. Had to move to a different room because ours was too far away from the office to get wifi. There were lots of of stairs to haul luggage and no elevator! I think it got rundown during the oil boom.
