Thank you for staying with us. The kid at heart definitely comes out when adults use our game room, I am happy to hear your son and husband had fun! We look forward to you visiting again.

Great amenities, but very thin walls

Pros: The game room was great. Loved the free board games, air hockey, foosball and video games. It's what lead us to book here, and it didn't disappoint.
Cons: Walls are way too thin. Pool was way too cold.
Location: Good location for Grand Forks, very close to the Alerus.
The walls are very thin! You can hear people talking. I don't believe they were being loud, just simply talking in the room and you can hear it in your room. There are signs plastered all over the hotel about a strict midnight quiet policy, but it's because the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. When we arrived, I needed to do some work and I could hear people talking while I was working. I had to turn on the tv for background noise. I figured there was a party going on next door, but it was only 4 pm. But that night, when we returned to our room to go to bed, we could hear voices again. And at 6 when the neighbors woke up, it was pretty constant. We left the tv on one night to drown out the noise. Breakfast was ok - the standard buffet. Not as good as reviews I had read. We were told the breakfast went until 10 daily but when we went down at 9:30 on Monday it was all cleaned up. And there was no one at the front desk to ask, I'm assuming it closes at 9am during the week. The pool was freezing! My kids wouldn't swim in it. The hot tub was nice sized but dirty! There was so much dirt just sitting at the bottom of the hot tub. Like what the kids pool looks like outside in the summer. Plus the pool room itself was only 62 degrees. The door outside was frosted over and the cold air was leaking in. The room also had a very distinct smell. My husband said it smelled like old man cologne. He thinks it's the detergent they use to wash the sheets.

Pros: All the amenities of 5-star hotel. Really felt welcome.
Location: Only blocks from UND. That was our destination.
This hotel is a fabulous place! I only wish we had been able to stay longer. Front staff was very friendly and competent. Our room was clean, comfortable, and had everything for a night away from home. I would recommend this place without hesitation!
