i was in Bismarck for a family reunion the week end of the Pow Wow. Of course there was not one motel room available except this ONE. Getting there late i just entered the room and left. i did notice an additional door joining my room to the next room was unlocked. I told the lady at the front desk...

Where do I start? We drove into the parking lot and was met by German Sheppards and a sign that said beware of dogs, as we continued, there was a potpouri of junk in the parking lot (including a toilet). My husband went to check in and was welcomed with a woman in her PJs and no bra on. The...

First of all we are a pet friendly hotel. We have about 5 rooms that we allow pets in. The signs are simply on the fence so that people know that there are dogs there. None of the dogs that we have had at the hotel have ever done anything to our patrons. Secondly the toilet was not in the...

The hotel toom that we suppose to have was to be a non smoking and it stunk with smoke. The grassed area with the chairs do not exist, in fact it was a dog pound for the owners two barking dog. The manager was rude, and even got to the point of getting violent when I asked for my money...

This guest was asked to leave due to his offensive and abusive behavior to my staff and guests in our lobby. This guest DID NOT receive a refund because he used the room. As for the "Dog Pound"... We have a well maintained pet / Kennel area for our K-9 Friends and travelers with pets. This area is maintained each...

The building was rundown and the parking lot crammed with barely room to turn around. We were checked into a room that had its door open and all the furniture up on the beds. We figured housekeeping wasn't finished, so went out for a while. When we returned, we were told that the room was down for repairs. We were...

This Patron check in during a furniture remodel as we were moving new beds, TV's and furniture. I apologize for this inconvenience. This project is complete. A large portion of our guests are booked via internet or are regular returning Patrons. "Loud, Shady, Characters" is a little harsh. I have a great housekeeping staff, but if something is overlooked, I...

The rooms were adequate. Location a little rough. Price half of most other hotels in town. However, the general manager was very helpful in assisting me with a charge disparity in a timely manner.

I got checked in with no problems, they got me a room that I needed. The room is well equiped with microwave, cable, fridge, internet and free phone. Some places I checked do not have those services, and are way out of the way. I had a problem with the internet, and they came right over to check the problem,...

The place is a mess-run down, dirty, half finished projects everywhere. Arrived at 10:30PM to a locked office door. No instructions for contacting staff were posted anywhere at the facility. Teenagers all over the parking lot, racing car engines and going in and out of rooms. Finally got the manager to open the office door, checked in, and went to...

This guest stayed here during the world's biggest softball tournamnet in the United States. This time of year always attracts young youthful people that fill up all the hotels in Bismarck. Management lets these softall players have their fun, but we do insist on keeping the motel quiet at 10pm. We are blind sided by this review, we would have...

Thank you Budget Inn Express Staff. You made our stay so very comfortable. Housekeeping staff and front desk people were very nice and even gave us room service!

Fifteen years ago I stayed here when this was a family owned/operated motel. Then it was clean and comfortable. So I decided to try it again; what a mistake. Nothing has changed in 15 years; same carpet, drapes, bedspread. But the carpet was filty, the drapes weren't hanging on drapery hooks, the heater didn't work, cigarette butts littered the sidewalks,...
