Positive Reviews

Handy roadside location

Set just off Interstate 94, the location close to roadside amenities like gas stations, shopping malls and eateries was welcomed by guests, especially those on a short stopover. It was also conveniently about five miles from Bismarck Airport.

Decent value for money

Reviewers often felt they got decent value for money at this no frills motel due to its inexpensive room rates. Guests often commented that the rooms were more than adequately clean and comfortable for a short stay. The flexibility of a pets allowed policy was a bonus for those traveling with cats and dogs.

Friendly service

Reviewers were often upbeat about the customer service saying personnel on reception were pleasant and helpful, although there were occasional reports of slower service during peak periods.

Negative Reviews

Charges for Wi-Fi were unpopular

Charges for Wi-Fi were criticized by many reviewers who said they were used to getting it for free at other budget lodgings they had previously experienced.

Accommodation had some drawbacks

Although many guests felt the accommodation was more than adequate for a short stay, there were others who thought there was some work for management and maintenance to do in order to improve the guest experience. There were occasional reports of stained linens and furnishings and some guests claimed there was peeling paintwork in places. Thin supplies of toilet paper, towels and soap in the rooms annoyed some guests who had to traipse to reception in search of more.

Cleanliness and noise issues reported

Some critics felt standards of cleanliness could have been better as they discovered unmade beds or trash on the floor when they checked-in. Lingering smoke smells were another annoyance despite the motel's smoke-free policy. Noise from neighboring rooms and corridors was reportedly sometimes audible, which occasionally disturbed light sleepers.
