My husband booked a room for one week related to work. He stayed one night only, at this place. The room was filthy the mattress also filthy and worn out but the bugs and spiders that shared the room was too much even for this hard core man. The woman at the desk was very rude. Needless to say no...

Just called to inquire and got yelled at and hung up on more than once. We could not even complete the questions we had. Margaret should go to hospitality seminars and how to professional speak to guest/possible guest. I then went in person and had the same disrespect. Not to mention I did see a big spider walk across the...

Nastiest hotel in the world. By far the worst I have ever stayed in, and I've traveled a ton. My husband and I slept with our bags stacked against the door that didn't lock and guns under our pillows just to feel safe. There were hairs on the pillows, the bed was ridiculously horrible (thin, bumpy, tiny, and gross). We...

If you want a receipt for your hotel stay, make sure to get one before you leave! Called three times and Margarette promised that she'd email me a receipt and I still haven't seen it. She told me that "I should have gotten one before I left", and "I have better things to do than this". She also said that...

Over priced like everything in Williston, Small small rooms no updates, duct tape holds the A/C window closed, did not receive maid service. Worst shower ever, the water smells really bad. This is a bunk house not a motel.

Well in a town where black gold has given the local lodging business a license to steal as far as rates go. Most properties give you a decent room although you,ll pay for it. This property does NOT even do that..A room with plugs in it with a tv in 1 and ac in the other and the building wi-fi...

My wife and I have traveled the globe, that being said, we have stayed in some pretty unbelievable acommodations. In Papua New Guinea for instance, the hogs living under the bamboo floor of our room, would shriek when the rats bit them during the night. The Grand View Hotel in Williston, North Dakota usurped this as the VERY worst place...
