We stay at this facility almost every time we come to Grand Forks.....The front girl Pat is absolutely awesome and we have now known her for years. Well located, quiet area, close to all shopping. This hotel has been completely renovated with new beds, furniture, desk, plugs, microwave, fridge and TV and yet remains economical / affordable price. We like...

The gentleman that checked us in was very personable and went out of the way to get us the rooms we wanted. The lobby is clean and inviting. This may sound funny but I was impressed by the cleanliness of the small aquarium in the lobby. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will stay again when in town.

Excellent location, comfy bed, AC works well, good shower, clean, decent free breakfast. There are train tracks close but we had no problems sleeping through. Very reasonable price for a little gem!. Lots of other motels in this area but it is very quiet. Easy access to a Walmart and gas stations.

I was a little scared. However, the reviews did not let me down. The room was big and clean ( bathroom can use sprucing in shower). But the bathroom was NOT dirty. It had the normal wear in shower area. The lobby has an inviting smell (clean). I would recommend this hotel. You can not go wrong if you're looking...

This hotel was very clean (always our main priority) and both rooms and common areas appear to have been recently been updated. They had a large, clean area for the continental breakfast with a nice selection of breakfast items. Staff we encountered were very friendly. The tub/shower in our bathroom still needed a little updating......but it was clean and serviceable.

The hotel was ok, inexpensive, and took pets. Reasonably clean. Our issue with it was the "air fresheners" in the hallways. We're not super scent sensitive, but it was so thick we were practically choking on it. The room was better, but the smell in the hall was absolutely disgusting!

We stayed here with friends during the summer and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and updated the rooms were. For the price, they had king size beds, updating bedding and carpeting. The room was clean and fresh. The breakfast was really enjoyable as well and included waffles, and pasteries and cereals. It's off the beaten bath if you want...

This hotel was a very good deal for the price. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. They offered your normal services and amenities. The continental breakfast was much better than I anticipated. They offered muffins, fresh waffles, juices, cereal, and other items.

Arrived in Grand Forks late in the evening, no reservation, and struck out at a few hotels until we hit Econo Lodge. They had a room, and we were fine with it. Large, clean, good beds, quiet, pretty much everything a tired traveller needed. Next time in GF, we will try here first. The breakfast was not the greatest, but...
