I have mixed reviews with this property. Due to a special event in town, they apparently decided to open some of their rooms while in the middle of a renovation. They should have stayed closed. At $40 a night, I would have been ok. At $80 a night, it was a rip off. Beds were clean and the front desk... More

This place is a joke. Tar on the carpet, bedding dirty,toilet still dirty, mold 12 inches up the shower curtain, bugs on the floor, walls and ceiling. Booked through Hotwire, so couldn't get a refund. Worst experience EVER. Witnessed a drug deal. Left and stayed at Candlewood!!

Stayed here en route to Montana and it was a perfect stop over place for the night. I slept really well in their beds and the staff was super nice and helpful. I also brought my dog along for the ride and they're pet friendly which is a BIG plus! The restaurant was also really good and parking was quick... More

On my own, with a tight budget and flexible standards. This was easily my cheapest option in Minot. The bed was clean and comfy, wifi was excellent and free, there was a mini-fridge and good microwave. Was able to park right beside my door. So, no serious complaints, for the price. Would I stay here again? Maybe, but only if... More

First off if you have young kids then this place is not for you. There is all kind of activity through the night and the bar in the parking lot doesn't help either. It's always loud. The area is not too clean and the rooms need a total makeover. They obviously haven't been updated at all. There are stains in... More

They say you get what you pay for, but in this case that is not even true. We arrived around 6pm, after a 4 hour drive, it took the unfriendly girl at the desk a good 45 minutes to find our reservations and an other 30 minutes to convince her that the room was already paid for on line, a... More

I booked this hotel as part of a business travel. I booked through Expedia and when I arrived I was told they were booked. They ended up booking me in a room, I have pictures in this review. The room was terrible. When I got home and looked at the receipt I realized that they charged me for two nights.... More
