Pet Friendly Hotels in Fargo, North Dakota: Mainstay Suites  by  JAN ASHBY

I have much to SHARE with you today – You’ll certainly learn more about MAINSTAY SUITES in Fargo, North Dakota than you expected to. I include things such as what you get with a Suite – details like the size of the TV screen in the living room (the room is comfortable – it even had a large Sofa).

And the beds are so very comfortable – I had a King-size bed in mine. Slept like a baby!

 

First of all, this is a PET-Friendly hotel. ND-Hotels-pet-friendly  The price of Mainstay Suites is roughly $83 to $140 dollars.

A valid credit card will be required to rent a suite –  for a pet, you will pay a one time nonrefundable fee of $75.

There are other ND Hotels and motels with a smaller charge for pets – Super 8, for instance, charges either $5 or $10 for pet stays in Fargo.

 

LIVING ROOM:  COMPACT BUT COZY

When I returned from the equipment room or pool area, it was nice to have a seat on my couch. There is also a chair in the “Living Room”.  At FARGO Mainstay Hotel, the size of the TV screen is 32 inches. And you also have free Wi-Fi – which you can set up at the Breakfast bar seating area that is located by your kitchenette.

Btw, the living room features carpeting – this carpet extends over to your sleeping area. In the sleeping area, there is an actual closet (LG) – with sliding doors, and spare pillows.

 

 

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS     zoo-fargo

It’s located close to the West Acres Shopping Center and Fargodome, the Red River Zoo, and Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitors Bureau ♦♦ Right across the street is the Chucky Cheese Pizza place – which the Kids may enjoy.

 

Mainstay Suites: Within The Hotel Itself

You’ll be happy to know there is both a Jacuzzi and a Gym – I checked out the equipment, it’s fairly durable “Heavy Duty” equipment.  Nothing chintzy.  *Note:  It has a treadmill

The Fitness Room is for adults – no children allowed. There are plenty of extra towels in the room – and the jacuzzi in the Fitness area is a pretty good size.

 

And as far as the pool goes, well, there’s a jacuzzi situated next to the pool.  I noticed many family members enjoying it.  Yet there’s also a spa/jacuzzi by the fitness center .  It is rarely in use – at least, I witnessed the one at the pool to be in far greater use.

 

Other Nice Benefits: There’s a Kitchenette or You Can Eat a FREE Breakfast

 

kitchenette-in-hotelThe kitchenette has some pluses – there is a big frig, a microwave, toaster, dishes (corelware plates that are sturdy); paper towels, dish soap (yes!), large-size bowls, silverware, coffee cups, glasses; a Frypan, a kettle.

I think the suite came with a basic Keurig coffee machine  [4 Cups are produced each time]. Also, there is a Dishwasher .  And even a potholder!

Now I had a very nice room – you had better call ahead to verify you’ll receive a nice “fully-stocked” kitchen, as well  (just sayin’ ).

 

As to the Breakfast Room – it is pretty large (not “dinky” as at the SUPER 8) – They spent some money on the Tables and chairs (higher quality).  And the meal choices were exceptional.  You could have REAL homemade oatmeal (not those packets)!

 

Or you could opt for scrambled eggs & bacon – which many HEARTY EATERS did.  I noticed they kept putting out more and MORE eggs (they truly stayed on top of things).  5 Stars *

Oh, and for you waffle lovers.. They’ve got you covered!  You can make as many as you like.

 

The coffee choices were decent!  3 selections : strong, medium, mild, decaf.  luxuries-on-vacation

For Tea drinkers, they offer Hot water.

I have to say you surely don’t find this large of a SELECTION at other hotels – and on the weekends, you know what they do..?  Simply extend the Breakfast hours (to 10 a.m) – so you can SLEEP in a bit

 

FURTHER  OPTIONS  AT  MAINSTAY

And there’s a Guest Laundry – which is FREE. There are 2 sets of stackables – they aren’t HUGE, so it may be rather an involved process for a big family.

Finally, there is an Airport shuttle available – or conversely, a BIG Parking lot (if you drove).  There certainly are many nice restaurants nearby – since the mall is situated nearby.

Personally, I enjoy Chili’s (at the mall), the Olive Garden (very elegant – wine and nice music playing), or LONGHORN Steakhouse – and for breakfast, there’s Dennys, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery.

And then for kids, there is Chuck E. Cheese pizza close by.  This eating spot can provide truly good entertainment for kids for hours!  And this location in Fargo has redone their Salad Bar.

I hope you have satisfying travels !     plane

HODO LOUNGE is a hipster place – Things like BISON Burgers & Quinoa Salad + Scotch collection impressive !!

 

FINAL  TIP:

Between the astonishing breakfast in the Breakfast room and your FULL kitchen (completely stocked) with Keurig Coffee maker, you can indeed save money – since You won’t have to go out to eat as often!  If you need more details on the suites, visit this:  YELP  [General comments ]

 

P.S. –  You can ask for a QUIET Room –  I Did!

P.P.S. – There are 2 computers/2 Printers in Bus. CTR

Super 8 Motels: Airport Super 8 Suite in Fargo ND..

ND Motels – Features at The Airport Super 8

By Jan Ashby

Jan Ashby My Stay in a Quiet ND Motel: Near Airport, Decent Parking, Restaurant Nearby

 

Super 8 Fargo Airport

1101 38th St NW, Exit 66 Off Of I-29, Fargo, ND 58102

(855) 261-1567

 

You may wonder if I enjoyed my stay in this Fargo ND motel  Super 8 MotelsWell, in a word “yes” – for the most part, as it was amazingly quiet – except for 1 time in my 4-day stay.  This was on Sunday when they started up some LOADS of laundry.  You see, I was situated in a suite next to the motel’s laundry center.

Located near I-29 and the airport, the Super 8 I stayed in had the following features:

  • POOL
  • Jacuzzi
  • Laundry
  • Free Breakfast
  • Comfortable Beds
  • High Speed Internet Access
  • Close to Hector Int’l Airportsuper 8 motel

For me, this motel was just right.  I needed a quiet stay – and as I was travelling during the off-season, the staff was able to offer me a SUITE.  The rooms all open to the inside of the motel – so I felt pretty secure and safe.

  My room was large, and came with a sitting room complete with brand new flat-screen TV and a good lamp – for reading !

I actually really enjoyed this last feature – the lamp  ND motels and amenities

Why?  Because it enabled me to read my mystery novel and “unwind” LATE at night.  Unlike the picture above, the Super 8 Fargo ND motel’s lamp was big – and gave off a LOT of light !

Of course, I liked the hell out of my FLAT screen tv – hey, what’s not to like?  It got a lot of channels, and every channel came in crystal clear.


The Kitchen Area:  Pretty Large for a Motel

What I liked the most – the available storage, and the mini-frig.  No, not a mini-bar – but hey, you can get ICE  from down the hall & make up some drinks if you like.  It will store quite a few.

When you get the suite (as I did), you get LOADS of free coffee, and a nice ice bucket.

The parking lot is nice and large – not only AMPLE parking, but parking for both cars and trucks.  Additional Comment:  The fact that I could go for a little walk was nice.  If you have a pet travelling with you, then you’ll be happy (the motel accepts PETS with a deposit).

Restaurant Nearby is none other than Arby’s – you can walk .. it’s within a few hundred feet.  For other restaurants, you pretty much have to hop on I-29.   Here’s a few for you:

 

  1. Monte’s DowntownSophisticated Fare: Incredible Review here

2. Doolittles Woodfire Grill  – My Fav

 

This motel is blessed with elevators, btw.  No lugging around suitcases.  Enjoy your stay.

P.S.  I suggest you tour the rooms ahead of time, and check out the bed for firmness.  Don’t be shy – you’ll be happier in the long run IF you’re comfortable.
