This is an old classic hotel with some modern services, but lacking others. The room and linens were clean. Had telephone, refrigerator, older TV, air conditioner. Lacking WiFi, coffee maker and microwave. The parking lot needs cleaning. I would have stayed there again on my return trip, except that it was fully booked. Maybe it is the worst motel in Minot, but certainly not the worst that I have been in.
As pointed out by others, the owner appears to be a hoarder. I did NOT find her at all rude or difficult to get along with. I chatted with her for a few minutes: they ran an insurance agency, and she then lost her husband. It would seem she trundled all her old papers into the motel, and hasn't been able to cope with throwing the old junk out, she was helpful in describing events and places to visit in Minot.More
