So we made plans to travel to Grand Forks for my brothers UND graduation, we were kind of scared of this place due to the reviews but we thought the kids would enjoy the pool area so we risked it. That was a huge mistake, when we arrived two of the rooms were missing their TV's. They brought us TV's...

Booked the room 2 months, we checked in and they said our room wasn't clean yet. And on top of that ALOT of room wasn't clean yet, they said all the cleaning staff quit. They have turned people away that booked months ago , because of that. Got in the room and it was super hot, a.c wasn't working and...

We have been staying with this motel for over two years now. We have been through all their ups and downs and still won't go any place else! They always go above and beyond to meet our needs! Keep smiling! 😀

I went here for my nephews birthday and there were roaches in the room. Also my nephew and my son both ended up with a disquisting rash that required antibiotics to get rid of, from the pool. This place is NASTY!!!

This place is in serious need of repair. I can tell they have been working on it with new TV's and fresh paint. However it was loud at all crazy hours of the night, even though the pool closed at 10 pm. The water pressure was barely more than a trickle... Honestly. There was a disgusting amount of cigarette butts...

Stayed a few nights, nice and close to the college. Easy parking, friendly staff. Breakfast was fine. Room was nice and bed was comfortable. The pool had a musty smell but I never used it, just noticed it in the hallways.

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. There is so much dust and mold that it should be condemned. My daughter with asthma kept getting sicker each night she was there. The breakfast runs out of food in the morning, and there is nothing much to choose from. The pool is supposed to...

We stayed at the hotel with a large group and numerous members of our group had problems with their rooms, particularly with regard to the heat. In several rooms the heat was not functioning properly and the rooms were freezing cold. Several room changes were required. Rooms that had working heat had the opposite problem - the thermostat did not...

Do NOT I repeat DO NOT book any event meeting here!! They were absolutely appalling in how they dealt with our children's event. First, the tablecloths were literally SHEETS!!! They said they had enough tablecloths for all of the tables and they didn't. Second, after we informed them of all of the tables we needed (15 tables and chairs for...

This hotel is very out-dated and gross. The ceiling of the pool area has mold. The pipes leak in the pool area. The hot tub was not working but full of green slime water. Garbage cans around pool area where over flowing with garbage. The door handles for room leading to pool area wouldn't work. After many compliments were moved...
