It would be a mistake for anyone to stay here. If you do make the mistake be sure to check the USED mattress for bugs. I have never stayed in a worse establishment in my life and will never go back. This is a new owner as of September 2016 so you should only use reviews after this date to...

Was in Grand Forks for my Son's hockey tournament. Tried to book about 2 months in advance but the only rooms left in town were at the Imperial, and there's a reason. The motel is in a great location, just a block from a great cafe, so it has potential but the room was so disgusting (see the attached pictures)...

Stayed week of July 18, 2016 for one night. This is your basic motel; TV, fridge and a/c. The beds and bathroom were clean though the carpet really needs to go. The room next door had engineered flooring which made a considerable difference. The toilet plumbing could use some improvement and the a/c units need to be cleaned. Could also...

I stayed one night here, and personally found it ok. The bed was hard, I had to remove cushions from chairs to put on the bed so I could sleep. Service was good and reasonably priced. This motel is close to a restaurant and walking distance to town.

In a last minute decision we decided to stay in an air conditioned space rather than camping for the night, We certainly made the right choice picking this motel. The rooms were clean,large and well equipped. Beds were comfortable and we all had a good rest. We required extra towels which were provided cheerfully. We received excellent value, much better...

Booked everything online, was not let down. It all came as advertised with no surprises! This was a pet friendly motel , and has very friendly staff. The location was right by the river , and very close to town. Not all the rooms are updated , but they are also not too dated.

This hotel is a true bargain and gem. It is OK looking for the outside, but not great. However, the room was large, had a hardwood floor, spotless and very clean. It had sufficient power outlets for my devices, and the Internet was blazing fast at my room, which was next to the office. The staff were very friendly, and...

Looking for local hotels on our trip, we chose this little hotel in the hole in the wall that is Grand Forks. A pleasant community nestled in the Rockies, the stay was superb. I arrived in the evening and received a warm welcome, with some additional chit chat that really empathized the warmness of this community. This hotel is a...

Booking was done on line and everything was as advertised. The check in was done in a very friendly and professional manner. The location is next to the river, a short walk from a little beach. The highway running next to the hotel is a bit of an easy as truck traffic is a bit noisy. However, all in all,...

We stayed at the Imperial Motel so that we could go on the Rock Candy Mountain Mine tour. On arrival we immediately noticed how clean ad comfortable the room was. Andrew and Trish the owners and operators are very kind and welcoming. They are willing to answer all questions and take interest in their guests. Thank you Andrew and Trish!...
