On approach this motel looks pretty dated and the lobby and lounge is also not impressive. But, the rooms are large, very clean and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable. Shower was hot and great water pressure. And, surprisingly, the motel offered one of the best breakfasts you will find in a budget hotel..healthy choices and freshly prepared with...

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Gina in the planning of our wedding reception at The Grand Williston, June 18th! She is very friendly and attentive, and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it! She was on top of everything! I didn't have to wait on her for anything! I was actually surprised!...

Our room was good and bed was clean and comfy. Our TV/remote didn't work and the maintainence guys were very diligent with trying to fix the problem. It was resolved quickly. The indoor pool was the perfect temp and one of the two hot tubs was very relaxing. Hours of operation for pool need to be updated. There are two...

Weight & Balance issues on a flight caused me to stay an extra night in Williston, ND.

My experience with the Grand Hotel has been great! The conference room planner (Gina) has been excellent on supporting us every Sunday when we rent the conference room there! Coffee is always provided and they are always more than helpful getting us what we need to make our church a success.

When a hotel has "grand" in its name, it evokes sophistication and a certain level of luxury and service. This hotel certainly does not fit that description: it seemed to me that it had been renovated just enough to pass for a higher class than what it must have been before. True, the bed was comfortable and the carpet and...
