Minot ND Hotels: Grand Hotel Review


Grand Hotel Review:  Minot ND Hotels with Flair

By Jan Ashby



I very much enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hotel of Minot.  If you or your family is traveling and you pass through the Minot area (western ND),  I highly recommend it.




Why?  Well, first of all the Grand offers a lot of comforts.  If you like a spot to rest your weary limbs, it has COMFY memory foam beds!   I think they’re Pillowtop.  And lots of plush pillows.

I slept well.

Now some may think the bed a bit firm – but that can be easily solved by bringing a 2 inch or 3 inch topper.  I found it to be extremely comfortable – and I liked the fact the pillows (and there were 6 of them) were of different densities.

This way, I could pile some up when I wanted to watch TV, or just get comfy.  Oh, and speaking of the tv,  it is a flat screened monitor.  Very clear picture.



Now onto the furnishings and the furniture.  Mind you, I stayed in a ROOM with King-sized beds.  Yours may vary slightly.

So… basically the hotel room came with a 3-drawered dresser (and an OPEN space above the drawers), plus a Full-sized closet.  The closet was no more than 2 1/2 feet deep – but it did have different kinds of hangers (pants hanger, skirt hanger, & shirt hangers).

This is where you’ll find the iron and ironing board.  There is also a Laundry bag.




*To see the SPECIFICS on suites at this place – in case you want a kitchen with a Full sized refrigerator and storage – Go HERE

>> The Above will take you to a Virtual Tour <<

DESK AREA:  Lamp above table (yes) and also plugin for your Laptop.  Wifi is pretty decent

NIGHTSTAND:  With a clock radio and a drawer  (There are reading lights over each bed )


Additionally,  there’s a plush easy chair with a lamp overhead.  And a Nuker — or should I say “microwave”.



There is a Conference room and a Business Ctr.   Also:  Dry cleaning/laundry service

There is ICE on each floor.  And there’s a Large Pool & Jacuzzi (with Seating Area) & Fitness Center.

This is on 3rd Floor and has a small refrigerator with Bottled Waters.

FINAL TIP : Just call and ask what your room features  (800) 735-4493


TIP:   IF You are disabled or need assistance, there is a Bellman.  Also they will take you anywhere in Minot ND you need to go  (24 Hrs a Day/7 Days a Week)

Professional Staff and European Flair

Noble Inn:  A European Style Hotel with Friendly Staff

By Jan Ashby

     ND Motels in Devils Lake

Location:  1009 20th Avenue Southeast, Minot ND 58701



Today I’d like to tell you about a nice inn I found, quite by accident.  It has charm and a “european flair“.  Plus it has decent hotel amenities – specifically, there’s a fitness center, an indoor pool, and a kitchenette in every room.  Also it’s convenient to have the laundry on EACH and every floor!

Minot ND Hotels: Additional Amenities to Consider

Are You a Techie?  Well, you’ll be pleased to know that every room includes wi-fi. Plus there’s a 32 inch flat screen tv.  And if you like the feel of memory foam, you’ll be jazzed to know you can request a memory foam topper!

The bed is a pillow-top bed – all the rooms are new, and are quite sound-proof. This is a quiet inn and is close to the airport. It features a large walk-in closet.  And if you need something (extra pillow, information) just ask; the Noble Inn has courteous staff who want to HELP you out.

Simply call (701) 837-1500. The professional staff will be glad to assist you.


The rooms are non-smoking, but there’s a designated area for smokers.

Many online reviews confirm this – as you can see 😎 .

Minot Activities and Events

The North Dakota State fairgrounds are 2 miles away, and host many events.  The North Dakota State Fair is in July – yet there are year-round programs, and you have only to LOOK up the calendar.

The Taube Museum of Art is nearby, as is the Old Soo Depot Transportation museum.  For dining, there’s a variety.  I’ll list some fine dining establishments:

If you prefer oriental – thai food for example – there’s the Baan Rao restaurant on  40th st. (it’s at 401 40th Street SE, Minot ND)

Final Notes

Some people like to know if a place has any newspapers. This one does. Also, there are banquet facilities on site.  And if you happen to have a lot of luggage, well, you’ll be relieved to know that this inn does have an elevator.

For summertime, there’s an outdoor barbecue to be enjoyed.

It is a new hotel, arriving during the boom time in North Dakota (oil boom) – with plush features (granite countertops, nice silverware & a kitchen), a bar, and full “hot” breakfast.. what’s not to like?



Additional Services at The Inn


Vending Machine (snacks), Vending Machine (drinks), Meeting/Banquet Facilities, Laundry, Fax/Photocopying, Business Center, ATM Machine on site, Newspaper

If this doesn’t strike you as a charming place to stay, well, you drive a hard bargain. You may want to check other Minot hotels such as Four Points by Sheraton Minot.
