    Hotel review
    Went to the ND game and the hotel was a $10 Uber ride from the stadium. Staff was very friendly and made our group feel very welcome. Room was OK, a bit musty smelling, but overall decent.

    Shoo fly Shoo !!!
    When I arrived at the Lodge I was cheerfully greeted by the desk attendant. My visit was downhill from there. TV was not working in my room. David from maintenance was called to reset the TV....apparently the lodge is in the process of converting their WiFi system. David was a professional. My room smelled stale cigar smoke. I'm a former smoker and I was able to tolerate the condition with lots of air freshner. Rooms are very outdated, very outdated. Carpet is dull green which really brings no brightness to the room. Stains on the chairs upholstery. I felt like I was in a dungeon. Worst of all, breakfast featured trays of donuts and sweet rolls that were totally infested with swarming fruit flies. I notified the kitchen attendant, and he proceeded to dump the two huge trays in the trash and blamed the bar. The lodge should look into individually wrapped rolls if it can't control the flying critters. Great location, however a below average stay. Another cheerful desk attendant greeted me at check out. Bottom line, the staff working here are the best thing going for the lodge, unfortunately they don't have a better product to work with.

    Cool Hotel
    The hotel has a very odd layout design. It has an old movie set labyrinth feel, but is really cool and comfortable. The room was nice, clean, and fairly up to date. No complaints.
