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.

Fargo, ND 58103

 

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

( I did not receive compensation for this review – it is simply my experience )

ND Motels: A Variety of Choices in Bismarck

ND Motels Review for Bismarck North Dakota

 

Suites and ND Motels

Hey, today I want to provide you a bit of information for motels in the Bismarck area.  This is information about motels or hotels in the Bismarck area – the capital of North Dakota.

First up :  BISMARCK MOTOR INN

Address:  2301 East Main Avenue, Bismarck ND

Phone  :   701-223-2474

Email   :   [email protected]

 

The rooms all come with a kitchenette – nothing fancy. But at least you can sit down and have a nice snack or dinner in your room.  *There’s a microwave in the room, as well as a stove.
VIDEO of Room

I will provide you this video, so you can observe for yourself.  There are storage cupboards aplenty in the kitchen area.

There is wi-fi  (but hey, I don’t know your needs so it is best to phone management & ask).  I have listed the phone no. at the top of this page. HBO is available in each and every room.  If you opt for Weekly rates, this is quite economical; it basically comes out to less than $50 a night.

**NOTE:  This is close to downtown, so it’s good for shopping & dining.  If you’re looking for a place that’s super quiet, however, this may not be your best bet.

 

FLAT PANEL TV

FLAT PANEL TV’s;  also the Bismarck Motor Inn is close to restaurants and to shopping, and fairly close to the hospital

LAUNDRY:  Yes  (Coin Operated)

A Senior Discount & Veterans discount is available – so inquire within.  Also, children stay FREE with a paying adult.  There are security cameras on site.

Extras:  Please note there is a room with a whirlpool – this would be their suite.

This hotel is clearly a step up – yet what it has in common with the previous place is that it’s also “pet friendly”.  There’s a walk area for your dog(s) which is well maintained .

At the low end, it’ll cost you at least $109; right now (in May) the rate is $122 thru Orbitz and Bookings.com

Amenities:   exercise room, pool, jacuzzi, pillowtop beds with luxurious quilt, free breakfast, free newspaper, free local calls; meeting facilities; high-speed internet access, guest laundry.

 Bathroom-ND-motel-Bismarck

This hotel has a really nice bathroom (better for sure than Bismarck Motor Inn) and is more spacious.  Thus it depends if you want to be pampered and have really nice comfy bedding and work out in their cool fitness room – or if you’d rather save some money and get a good weekly rate (and still be close to restaurants, shopping etc), then opt for the motor inn.

I can vouch for the fact this is clean and the rooms are very spacious & nice.  I like the fact this hotel serves wine sometimes in the Lobby at night.

** RECENTLY REMODELED **

The La Quinta Inn has another sweet feature:  I like that check-out is at Noon !

Check in time is:  3 PM

Things to Do:  Located near the state capitol.  Loads of restaurants; miniature golf.  The Belle Mehus Auditorium is nearby, within 2 miles.  For theatre tix, hit up Ticket Center
