Went on a trip to the peace garden and stayed here. I was leery, but it was just fine. Staff is friendly. We got back late and we're able to eat at the restaurant in the basement. It's only open Monday- Thursday I think. The food was really good there. Not a lot for breakfast, but was able to grab...

I found this hotel through Google Maps when looking for a hotel for one night en route to the International Peace Garden. Call to make certain that a room will be available for your travel dates. The hotel is small, and few rooms were left because of long-term residents working on the construction of the new wind farm, and medium-term...

It is exactly what it is ... no more and no less ... a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in. Motel room was clean enough so no complaints in that regard. I do not know if there is another section but I stayed in the south side for one night where the rooms (except for the...

I have stayed in this motel on three different occasions and it was always a positive experience. the rooms were clean and nice sized, they have a lovely breakfast area even a sauna and not to mention the great food in their restaurant. if you're passing through this area this is the best option hands down.

My wife and I recently stayed here after being unable to get a room at the Sky Dancer Casino. When you walk in the lobby it looks nicely decorated and furnished. The daughter of the owner booked us in and then we entered the motel via another entrance. The view was quite different from the lobby and with a damp...

I stayed here two nights. It was nothing special, but certainly decent. Just your basic room with basic amenities. Breakfast was cereal and bagels. I would stay here again if the road brought me back this way, but I wouldn't write home about it.

What can you say about a motel that is constructed out of a bunch of modules (trailers) fitted together to form a building? I suppose that its a better bet than the other option in town. In fairness, this is a motel that is geared towards the farmers, construction workers, oil crews and other transient folks that quickly pass through...
