Friendly, helpful staff, good room

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: breakfast adequate but small selection
The room was very nice for the rating, clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. The selections for the included breakfast were small but adequate and in keeping with the room rate. I would definitely use this hotel again.

Pros: It was clean and had a microwave & refrigerator. Bed & pillows were comfortable.
Cons: When they know you are coming they should make sure the heat is on in the rooms. February is not the time of year to have the heat off in Grand Forks.
Rooms were clean & comfortable. Close to the University. They did have the heat off the first night we arrived. It took 2 hours to warm up. That made for a cold night, but once warmed up it was good.

Nice place to stay!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, conveniently located
The hotel was very nice, clean, large bathroom, & comfortable bed. The complimentary breakfast, while nothing fancy, was adequate and appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful. It also turned out that the hotel was located very conveniently for our travels.

Good, clean motel

We came in late (1am) without a reservation (after a different hotel lost ours). Staff was very helpful. Room was clean and well kept up. Continental breakfast could use an upgrade, however.

lack of sleep

Overall this place is ok for the price. Room smelled a bit over-perfumed. Main problem was the noise. My room was next to a service room and staff clamoring around in there at all hours of the night. To run the room fan fulltime to drown out noise means running without the heat. Running the heat means the fans goes on and off so when the fan was off I could hear all kinds of noises. I was very frustrated by being awakened all thru the night. Next time in Grand Forks, I'll pay a little more to stay somewhere else.

You get what you pay for...

Rooms were not thoroughly cleaned. Smelled very stale in rooms, perhaps air freshener should be used. Not terrible just not great, you get what you pay for.
