“Authentic ghetto experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night at a purportedly renovated kitchenette to check it out since 1st choice hotel was full. Was told a sofa sleeper included over the phone . Not the case upon arrival. Other notables: Toilet easily flooded. Bath sink drains to the tile floor. TV was the size of a computer monitor. Beds have no support other than bouncy coils. Comforters looked to be used many times over complete with stains. Soft blanket comes with authentic cigarette burns. Neighbors were drinking/arguing in Spanish. Someone was yelling at their dog to relieve outside. All of this comes at a price near the nicer hotel rates.

Positives: plenty of parking due to low occupancy. AC was new and worked well. TV had HD service.

Our room smelled musty from the moment we opened the door. We tried to open the windows but they were broken and the screens were all bent (so the mosquitos joined us in the room!). The bathroom floors were dirty and the tub was filthy (I actually used a towel to stand on in the tub to shower) The smoke alarm went off for no reason in the morning and we had to take it off the wall to get it to stop sounding. We had a kitchenette and the sink was dirty, the dish drainer had dried up food on it.

I do not mind if we stay at a hotel that's not fancy but do expect to have a clean room. The bathroom was awful, hair on the tub,toilet seat and sink. The shower curtain had mold ,which they did replace when I asked, two hours later. There was Mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Dust everywhere. I actually went to Kmart bought cleaning supplies and cleaned so room 121 was cleaner when we left than when we arrived. Staff attitude was not caring about anything. I will never stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not stay in a standard room. The door would not even shut unless you slammed it.

Came in expecting a motel catering to construction workers and hunters/fishermen. Exactly what I got. I stayed in the older section, and it was adequate. As a hunter, I understand why the rooms are furnished in the manner that they are. Not new, but functional and roomy and they allow pets (for a surcharge). They have a designated area for cleaning fish and birds which is handy. They also have a nice greenspace out back for airing out the dogs.

Room Tip: Use the new area if you want a new room, or the unimproved wing if you have pets.

We are working in the area and our company was paying for our rooms. When I was first told we would be staying there I trip advised this hotel and was not happy with what I read. Upon checking in I mention this to Melanie at the front desk and she informed me that they were in the process of updating thier hotel and the east wing was just finished this week! She then called my company for me to see if we could be put into the update area..which have new carpet...new queen beds..coffee maker...microwave...fridge and flat screen tv thankfully my company said yes! There is a lounge in this hotel with very good food and very friendly service! All and all Im very pleased with our stay and very thankful for Melanie calling to see if we could be upgraded! The east side is fully remodled and they are planning on doing the west side next. They value thier customers and are working on making this hotel once again a great clean friendly place to stay in Devils Lake North Dakota!

My family spent the weekend here and found that the hotel does not follow their own policies. We went out for the morning before check out time at 11am, when we came back before 11am to clear our things out of the room for check out, we found that our stuff were missing. We were able to finally locate our things. The housekeeper had them. After careful inspection we found some of our personal belongings were missing. When we reported this to the front desk, nothing was done. We called back a few days later to see if our things turned up, even spoke to the supervisor, who "looked into the situation." The hotel apparently has a policy that says things can't be removed from the rooms before check out and without it being reported first to the front desk. Neither of the policies were followed and we were told nothing could be done about it. So before you stay at this place, make sure you lock up everything and check out well ahead of time or they'll take your things.

Room Tip: Stay away from this place.
