It's understandable that old buildings are high maintenance. We stayed here because it had been remodeled and we took advantage of a group discount at an event in the area. The live bugs crawling in the bathroom may have slipped in through the gaps in the crumbling grout but the dead bugs should have been removed by housekeeping. Otherwise the... More

Do not stay here. Mattresses were smelly and room was filthy. Bathroom hadn't been mopped in years and commode plunger was sitting beside commode and it was nasty. The only good thing was the price. Which I'm not sure $99 was a good deal for this place. You get what you pay for.

We went to Devils Lake to visit friends and go fishing. We had 2 queen beds and the room was clean and huge! It was enjoyable to come back from fishing and go into their bar and not have to worry about having to drive anywhere, that was a big plus for us!

Avoid this place. Would have preferred sleeping in Wal-Mart parking lot next door. Ended up removing bedding, putting tarps on our mattresses, and sleeping in our sleeping bags... the beds were that uninviting. They did provide $20 reimbursement when we complained, but it doesn't make up for their complete disregard for cleanliness. Do not stay here.

I work for the railroad. I do my fair share of sleeping in hotels all over, for extended periods of time. My coworkers (30 plus guys) and I stayed here for a total of 4 weeks straight. While it's definitely not a Hilton hotel, it gets the job done. Rooms are big, and clean enough. Decent place to lay your... More

A very old looking motel. We were on a fishing trip and didn't want anything fancy. Room was not great. Our room was relatively clean, the air conditioner worked, and the tv worked. The internet unfortunately Did not work. I always check before booking so this was disappointing. Did not eat there. Would only stay there if I couldn't find... More

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... More

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... More
