In the “heart of the Williston Oil Basin.” Because there’s oil in North Dakota, you know. Lots of it. Even then. As one review says:
Because of the oil field business, they don't have to care because they are filled every night. "If you don't want to stay here, too bad. Someone else will rent the room." Dark and Dingy would be their strong point.
Get this: “Barber Shop – Beauty Parlor – Trampoline.” When was the last time you ever saw a motel advertise one of those? It’s like advertising “Quoits” or “Ten-pin bowling.” It’s still there, although it’s been remodeled.
