Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet

Great hotel for kids. pool area is fantastic. Smaller pool with slides for little ones and a larger slide for the older ones & adults. Rooms are dated but clean. Well priced and not too far from shopping.

The hotel was overbooked so had to find a new place to stay. Waited in line for 45 minutes to say they had no reservation under my name

First room had puke on the wall and floor and the second room there was a dirty cup on the floor and the heater sounded like a freight train and blew heat all night. Not impressed.

Badly in need of a remodel

Needs remodeled! Carpet bad, floors sticky and disgusting. Moldy smell and mold color around door that connects to outside that isn't used. Close to Univeraity so it has potential. Just needs redone badly! We will not stay there again.

Non-smoking room wreaked of smoke-

Pros: The pool
Cons: When switching the rooms from smoking to non-smoking rooms, the motel should rip out the carpets and throw all the furniture away, plus paint the room
Location: There is a mall
The whole room smelled of cigarette smoke, the beds, sheets, the carpet had burn marks. Part of the wall was crumbled onto the carpet. The room was not suitable for a family with small children, will never stay there again.

Slumming it in Grand Forks

The first thing you will notice when you pull up is that the Canadian flag is pink and the American flag is so tattered that it is a complete insult to the flag. I was surprised at how much care had been taken to improve the decor since my last visit inside, however, my air conditioner did not work. My door was left ajar by house keeping. The continental breakfast ran out of everything except a couple of cups of waffle mix with the mix slopped up all over the sides. The front desk staff were at least kind and prompt. If you are thinking that the pool area will redeem your stay think again. There was no air conditioning in the pool area or ventilation. It was over a hundred degrees there there were no pool attendants and we had to ask to get the pool area turned on. In all the pool area which looked like fun ended up being miserable humid and with no ventilation the clorine hung heavy in the air burning our eyes.

Good room for the value!

Pros: Free breakfast, pool with waterpark
We stayed with 3 of our young children and got a poolside room without requesting it, which was a nice surprise. The kids had a great time and I got to visit with a friend for awhile. Would definately stay again if ever in town with the family.
