Bismarck is a commercial rather than a tourist City but we reserved accommodation there when we could not find available accommodation in the neighbouring City of Mandan where we were visiting for the Mandan Rodeo Days Festival. The Days Inn is right on the Interstate system and so proved to be a very convenient base for touring Bismarck and Mandan and that part of North Dakota generally. The room was surprisingly low in price but was spotlessly clean. However it was very small with no desk and little space around the bed. As we had paid so little for the room we were happy to pay for an upgrade but the helpful receptionist immediately upgraded us to a substantially bigger room without charge.
We enjoyed our stay, and the only problem we experienced was that room service was consistently poor. On three occasions we had to ask for coffee as none had been left and on one the bed had not been made though the towels were changed. For some reason only one pillow is issued as standard even though there were two of us sharing the room. In addition to the pillow four or five cushions were provided. Each day we asked for the cushions to be replaced with a pillow and sometimes this was forthcoming, while other times it was not.
Nearly all of the rooms look out onto the parking lot but this is open and surrounded by trees so this is not in any way a problem. A small number of rooms look out onto the main road to the front of the hotel. However the hotel is far enough from the road that noise will not be a problem.
We did not use the free breakfast which is offered as standard, preferring to pay for a full breakfast at a local restaurant but we noted that a small amount of cooked food could be ordered for breakfast in addition to the usual cold buffet items.
WiFi was easy to use and speedy in our room; no problems connecting or downloading.
The poor room service was obviously an inconvenience but otherwise this is a high quality hotel, well-situated hotel at a low price.
