“Need patience to stay here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Last weekend my family decided to book this hotel for our annual get together we normally stay at the c'mon inn but they were booked. We thought we would give this one a shot. Great set up for us around pool since we booked 2 poolside rooms so this worked well. Lack of pool towels at times, breakfast was fine. Nice lady always filling and cleaning. Checkout is at 11 well starting at 10 am we had housekeeping knocking on our doors 3-4 times trying to rush us out. I kept telling them we would be out by 11 but this didn't register and my sister had same issues while trying to pack and look after kids. Very frustrating. Check in is at 3. We got there at 2:30 and we were told room was not ready which is fine but 1/2 hour later the same receptionist looked at me with a dull stare and didn't know what I was doing there. Staff could use more customer service training. L

Dear Javagirl77,

Thank you so much for taking a minute to send us your honest feedback. We use each and every guest comment to improve our guest service standards. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and have addressed your concerns. All of our staff is required to complete and undergo our Gold Standard Service training and we were disappointed to hear they were anything less than superb this time. We assure you that this experience was out of the ordinary as many come for miles to stay exclusively for us for our commitment to service. We'd like to invite you back to stay with us again in the future during your travels. We would love to extend you a poolside upgrade for the price of standard room. Feel free to email me at rstovall@thihospitality.com prior to arrival so I can personally take care of your upgrade!

Warm regards,
Roadking Inn Colombia Mall

Me, my girlfriend and our to small dogs stayed in this hotel on our last trip to Grand Forks. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our needs. We tried using a coupon for our room but we were told they do not accept coupons for poolside rooms. Despite this they offered us 15% off. The room was clean, the pool was warm and well kept as well as the hot tubs. I would recommend this hotel to anybody traveling to Grand Forks. Great Place!!!!

Room Tip: If you have coupons be sure to call ahead and see if they are valid for the room you are reserving.

We have used the Road King for many visits to Grand Forks, unfortunately this past weekend will be our last. The building itself is run down and dated, carpet is threadbare. The towels and bedding are on their last legs (the pool towels only have one side). One hot tub has been out of commission for a few years now and the other tubs were warm at best. I was not amused when I went down for a swim (one of the main reasons for picking this hotel) on Sunday only to be met with a kid's birthday party in full swing. The pool was filled with youngsters all in a serious state of frenzy. I get birthday parties and excitement but not when I've come for a leisurely rest and relaxation time. The hotel should have to notify guests if there is such an event and I think some type of monetary compensation is warranted. With coupons our stay came to $170.48, a little too hefty for me for services rendered.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

Dear Jamie B,

We thank you truly for your feedback. We are always striving to improve our location and comments such as yours show us just where we can start. We take pride in our clean and friendly property with the ideal location to match. We do book pool parties but do only book them during the day time hours and they are few and far between. Although many people enjoy our poolside rooms so that they can relax in by one of our two pools or three hot tubs, we do have rooms that are in a separate wing from the courtyard as well. We would love an opportunity to make this up to you. Would you please email me at rstovall@thihospitality.com? We promise you will not regret reaching out to us.

Truly,
Roadking Inn-Colombia Mall

I have spent 38 years in the Canadian Military, travelled extensively in Canada and Europe and now my wife and I both seniors, enjoy a few trips a year to Grand Forks. We always stay at the Road King Inn and certainly enjoy the excellent hospitality, courteous staff and clean quiet rooms. The continental breakfast is excellent and the Inn's proximity to good shopping enables my wife to enjoy a few more hours of sleep while I walk to the malls. Overall, great value where the manager Mr Glennen personally speaks to the patrons to ensure their satisfaction. A habit forming person I always ask for the same room, and the staff always do their best to fulfill my request. .

Room Tip: We always want 230 simply out of habit and, while there is excellent security, I am able to see my...

This hotel is the first place we always stay. The pool is great and the number of hottubs means almost never over overcrowded. The breakfast is very nice, and the staff are always keeping it stocked up. The front desk staff are super pleasant and very friendly.

Room Tip: pay the extra for the jacuzzi suites, well worth it. 247 is the primo room

We spent the weekend in Grand Forks at the Roadking, great hotel and good value. Staff is friendly and efficient. Complimentary breakfast was satisfactory. Good location, walking distance to the Columbia Mall and the box stores are just across the street. Lots of restaurants close by. Definately will stay there again.
