Only stayed here because it was the last room in the city the weekend of 3/30/12. Paid $189 per night for a dump in Bismarck, ND! Hotel is dated and not clean.
Bathroom was especially disgusting. Dirty tile and chips in toilet seat...really, how expensive is it to replace a toilet seat? The bedding for the sofa bed was the lowest quality possible and the "mattress" for it was paper thin. My children were uncomfortable.
While the waterslide is fun for kids, the hotel was full the weekend we were there. There was a hockey team staying (or at least using the pool) and they were extremely obnoxious. Absolutely no hotel staff monitoring the behavior in the pool area. We ended up going back to our room so noone got injured from the craziness on the waterslide.
Two nights of kids (hockey and gymnastics families) running and shouting in the halls. Again, no staff monitoring the halls at all. (I believe the parents were sitting by the pool having cocktails.) I finally chewed out the young kids across the hall for fighting in the hallway.
Carlson should seriously consider revamping this hotel, not only the building, but the management. Look at all the horrible reviews. Someone isn't doing their job!
