is it near the amtrak station or university of north dakota.
No it's not near ether but right next to Menards and real close to shopping center' You can reach what you very easy as everything in Grand Forks is a short drive.
Amtrak station is on Demers ave, just on the west side of I29. Days Inn, is not far from UND, but there are quite a few hotels/motels that are closer to UND and Amtrak station. Days inn may be a five min. drive to get to UND or Amtrak.
