Grand Forks Inn & Suites
Ranked #28 of 28 Hotels in Grand Forks
Reviewed 14 June 2011

I would give this hotel a zero if it was an option. First, the lady was rude at the desk from check-in. Then when we checked in I took my daughter to the swimming pool and saw the slide and splash part were off. We asked the desk lady and she said that the splash park would be turned on but got rude about how the slide is only open on weekends. I was upset because the reservations said it would be open in the summer. I brought our printed confirmation and showed it to the manager and she acted as if it was my own problem and said they didn't have the staff to open it so it wouldn't be open. I did manage to get a discount on our room.

The pool area was dirty feeling the first night and that "renovation" that they claim would be done by March 2011 was nowhere near done. The floor was all tore up and the hot tub was slimy and smelled like a fish aquarium. The second day they did clean the hot tub so it was better the next night. The splash park is also old and rusty looking.

In addition the whole hotel smelled moldy and musty and I even saw mold some places. The carpets also were old and tore up. The breakfast was nasty with the only thing decent was the orange juice. The only good thing about the hotel was the bar. I would NOT stay here again.
