The room was clean and warm and the people nice. I was traveling on business and wanted to warm up food. There is only one microwave located in the vending area, and you had to go outside to get to it. I was there in January so that was a real inconvenience. If the rooms had microwaves I would stay...

The North Winds Lodge is a classic motel that harkens back to childhood road trips -- a single-story of rooms arranged around a parking lot with a small swimming pool in the center. Debbie, the owner, was amazingly helpful and friendly, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the fridge and microwave were quiet and spotless. Comfy bed and... More

Clean rooms, including fridge and microwave, small swimming pool with water about 100 degrees, just right, very efficient service.....quiet, and FULL. They must get a lot of repeat business. And they have AAA rates. Nice sign, maybe from the 1950s? Great place to spend a night or two. VERY good wifi!

Bowman has several unbranded hotels and Northwinds Lodge is the best of the ones I've stayed with (out of four stays). I stayed here twice during a North Dakota road trip. Rooms are nice -- clean, comfortable and quiet, with adequate TV. In-room coffee is included but breakfast is not. Pricing is reasonable. The owners live on the property and... More

Spotless!!! Updated and exceeding our expectations!! Appears to be a family run motel with all the comforts the big boys offer. Very reasonably priced. When back in the Bowman area we will definitely stay here again.

All of the recent TripAdvisor reports are true; for the area and location reasonably-priced at $80 per night with $7 tax. We encountered a large clean recently-remodeled room. Spotless bathroom of tub/shower and toilet. Separate sink and counter in anteroom. Large flatscreen with three chairs and table. Comfortable and quiet. Small outdoor pool and swing set. All within walking distance... More

We enjoy staying at this motel. We like to support locally owned businesses. The owners and staff are friendly. The rooms are very clean. The amenities are quite basic: coffee maker, refrigerator, decent shower, comfortable bed. It does have an outdoor pool although we did not use it. The price is reasonable.

It was cheap and clean. I am giving it an average for two reasons. The room really smelled of an air freshener or something. It wasn't a nice smell and it was strong. I got a headache from it. Second reason was the yellow water that came out of the shower. I accidentally closed the tub drain was showering. It... More

As the title says, nothing extra about this motel, a very small refrigerator, no microwave in the room, (you have to use the one in the vending area) and no breakfast. But if you're looking for CLEAN, comfortable and reasonable then this is the place for you.

There is nothing wrong with this popular motel, it is clean, convenient if of the old style. It is by far the best there is in the area. However a couple of annoying things, water draining from the bathroom next door can be a little disturbing, especially if at night or early in the morning. The in-oom coffee maker is... More
