“Better Pool rules”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

I had family come down from Fargo to celebrate my 2 nephews bday. Davon checked us in, he was polite, I brought everything to the room got situated,(completed a little cleaniness check that passed except for the lumpy pillows) got the kids ready for the pool. The group of people that were in the pool acted like they owned it. Maybe limit the amount of guest that can be in there to give other guest a chance, also in-force the rules, when it says NO drinks or food in pool area then make sure NO drinks in pool area. Other then good stay, will definitely try it again.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

Arrived on a Sunday night after 9 p.m. to check in using my reservation made at the Choice Hotels website 8 days in advance, non-refundable, money saving option. First told that there were no rooms in my confirmed catagory. I pushed, showing the copy of the confirming email. Then there was a room. I was given certian amount of hassle regarding payment, again had to show the email that listed it all pre-paid by credit card. So, I get to the room. Telephone is on the bedside table, no connection cord to a phone jack, then I go to use the bathroom sink and it does not drain because the plunger is jammed in down position and there is not a handle to tug on to lift it. Front desk is not too helpful and hour later there is a guy trying to open the sink and he is there until 11:30 p.m. the sink is open and he is saying he needs to go to a local store to get a phone cord. Forget it. I don't need a repair person in the room after midnight. The front desk the next morning is somewhat more willing to listen to my dissatisfaction, does try to do some cost adjusting, I wait and wait ... finally due to her frustration with the computer she forces a very cheap price into the computer and says it is reduced. I still await to see what my credit card billing actually shows. I have my doubts. This property looks good, has a regular amount of breakfast offerings, but ... my experience was the worst I have ever had at a chain hotel property. They put it all on the fact that that a local business "took" all the rooms at the last minute. Not a good explanation in my opinion.

I stayed here two nights in August 2012. We were originally given a room that we were told was "non-smoking" on the lower floor, but the room reeked of cigarette smoke and the bedspread had at least 4-5 very visible cigarette burns in it. When I complained at the front desk, the manager, (who was smoking outside just prior) said "they are all like that" meaning the bedspread, and swore the room was non-smoking. She finally put us in a 2nd floor room. This room smelled better, but still a distinct cigarette odor from the hallways and slight smell in the room too, though not nearly as bad as downstairs. Avoid the first floor rooms. The outside card reader was broken too. The hotel did not seem old or in obvious disrepair, it just stunk of cigarettes all the way through. Both of our rooms could have been a lot cleaner too. Would never voluntarily stay there again. I have to say the beds were comfy though.

Room Tip: Avoid the first floor!! It stinks!!

Upon arrival, the guest has to walk through a cloud of smoke generated by employess smoking at the main entrance. No security, the side doors card readers are not working. My rooms deadbolt was actually broken, seemed like someone had broken into this room before. To cap it all, the non-smoking room was reeking of smoke. For the price I paid, there are many better hotels to stay at.

Arrived on May 3, 2012 for three nights. My room was on the first floor (all 2nd floor rooms were booked for HS playoff teams). The room's view was to the back of a pawn shop and a late night bar. With the window looking out at bumber height, lights from cars behind the bar and pawn shop were shining in from 11PM through 3AM. It's not an easy place to sleep, especially with no locking bar on the sliding window.

The AC unit apparently flooded the carpet, as it was soaking wet out to about 3 ft from the wall. There were almost a dozen cigarette burns on the bedspread (no-smoking room!). There were ants on the floor in the bathroom. It's not a clean place to stay in.

Yep. Run down. The staff wasn't helpful in addressing the water, burns, or bugs. It's not a quality oriented hotel.

So I moved to another hotel the morning of the 4th.

Don't stay at this place.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor facing the road. Check it immediately. Leave if it's bad.

We booked a group at this hotel and it is obviously their mission to over promise and under deliver. To say that the property is "run down" would be a gross under statement. They severely lack security and anyone could gain access to the exterior doors, as the card reader was not active. This left many in our group feeling very vulnerable as the location of the hotel is not in the best of neighborhoods. There were people walking in off the street to use the rest room, which was even more unsettling. The breakfast was severely lacking as they ran out of food on Saturday morning, so they closed it early. The heater in our room was missing the front panel, the TV remote didn't work and the carpet was loose in many areas. This property is in a severe state of deterioation. The pool area is small and it is advertised as heated, but it was either not working or not turned on. I have no hesitation in saying it was the worst stay I have ever experienced.

I stayed here a couple of nights while on business. The place is a little run down. It was clean though. I think it was overpriced for considering the condition. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a little lacking in selection. What they did have was good.
