Our family booked about 14 of the 17 rooms for a reunion. We had a lot of trouble getting our individual reservations made, as the motel number is answered in the bar most of the day and night. The staff is foreign and although they are sweet, don't always understand or relay messages correctly. I had called and also sent... More

We stayed at the Riverdale High Lodge for a family reunion. We loved that they turned an old school into a hotel. The hallways were lined with old trophies, uniforms, and reminders of the old school. The owners incorporated the old school colors into much of the design as well. The rooms were very large, probably almost the size of... More

Take an old school. Do some extensive modification. What you get is an enjoyable night's lodging. High ceilings, hardwood floors. comfy beds. Gotta try this place. Only wish there would have been a breakfast offered as nothing was open in the entire town.

Yes, there were some issues - it was late when we checked in, and at first it didn't seem like anyone was at the front desk and he wasn't very friendly. The room was very nice, but have to agree with previous reviews - there was a lack of lighting and a place to put your personal items in the... More

Very cool looking place, rooms are very unique and spacious, the beds and bedding was amazingly comfortable and plush, that being said, we were hit with a terrible smell upon entering this establishment and either we got used to it or it disapated while we were there. The rooms were large, high ceilinged and very nicely decorated and did not... More

We reserved our room two weeks in advance. I ask the girl on phone three different times if they allow pets she said yes every time. Their website says nothing about no pets, but states they cater to hunting parties. We arrive to check in I see a sign no pets, so I ask why I was told I could,... More

I agree with what others were saying the rooms and features are AMAZING. I've stayed in some really nice hotels and the rooms rival some of the top tier hotels. That being said there were quite a bit of issues I had. 1. No one was at the front desk. You have to call the number to track someone down... More

What a gem in the middle of North Dakota. I'm astonished that there is only one other review. This is a high school that has been turned into a first class hotel. Everything was done with style and class. No shortcuts were made at all. Everything in my room is brand new and is clean, stylish and well run. The... More
