Our stay was November 21-23, 2014. We came for the ND game. As I read other reviews, I wonder, did they stay at the same place? I've stayed here twice before. The entrance is charming. The front desk check in was quick and informative. Got us booked for the shuttle to the game and we were all set. The room,...

We we stayed there on a Sunday in mid-September. It used to be a Ramada Inn. I'm not surprised. The current name sounds a lot more 'refined', but inside and out it shows its heritage, and could use some work. As an aside, ... the afternoon we arrived the parking lot was virtually empty, but there were a couple of...

When we pulled up, I didn't want to get out of the car! Quite surprising inside. Our room was nice....housekeeping needs to step it up! The bed skirt was falling off of a made bed. The coffee maker was so dusty, I couldn't imagine anyone using it. The toilet paper holder in the bathroom was broken. There was not a...

Let me preface this with, this room was sooooooooooo sub par, you would nearly believe it was an hourly rental. Heater/air con was inconvenient to learn, and was loud all night. Tv is off center from the bed, making that an annoyance also, with low volume it was easier to watch my iPad. Our room was located down a corridor...

Stayed overnight on a road trip. Compared to many hotels close to interstates, this one was very nice for the price. The room was spacious and clean with great amenities. Very basic continental breakfast, but overall a great value. Would definitely stay here again.

Waterford Estates is a two-story hotel, a building with a few years on it, but with nicely maintained and decorated rooms. Ours had a large, comfy easy chair, a microwave, and a small fridge. Breakfast goes with the room, and is served in the comfortable pub/restaurant. Breakfast is continental style, with boiled eggs, pastries, cereals, toast, coffee, tea, juice, and...

No hot/full breakfast,restaurant with limited 4-9 hrs wed-fri,old,dirty inside, one computer at front desk you had to stand to use. Staff were the saving grace! Comcast = phones, TV internet out for 36 hrs plus. Could not call into or out of hotel,no internet for business etc. Local hotels in close proximity were not affected

Nice hotel, relatively inexpensive, close to the university. Clerk choose our room close to side entrance, unfortunately folks allowed it to slam in the morning. Any other room should be fine, or don't slam door when you stay here. Quiet A/C. Recommended!

We stopped here to break up a road trip. Was looking for something pretty inexpensive but thought we would check a few nicer looking places to see if they had any last minute bargains before we went to the cheaper places. The exterior looked nice so I was surprised to find the regular rate was only $79 and only $71...

Wonderful staff, Great rooms, Friendly. I can't rave enough about the staff in the hotel. The Bend Restaurant that is connected to the hotel was great. Will go back to the Waterford again. Trip was PRICELESS.
