TravelPod Member ReviewsMotel 6 Fargo
I've been to quite a few Motel 6's but this is one had more than the usual share of problems. There were at least three people in the office but only one of them seemed to be doing any work. I eventually got checked in. When I went to my room I couldn't get in. I went to the front desk and they gave me another key. That one didn't work either. When I went back a second time I was told by another guest that you have to lift the handle up to get the door to open. Even with three or more people behind the desk and three opportunities to tell me this I was told by a guest, not an employee.
After getting a working door key I wasn't too surprised when it stopped working the next day. I went to the front desk and they tried to tell me it was because I kept it near my credit cards. I'd be willing to bet it was because the key was only programmed for one day.
Then I tried to used the Internet key I was given; it wouldn't work. I went to the desk to get another one. Someone came with me to make sure I got it working. It did work but then he told me it would be really fast so I ran a speed test; it was around 400kbps, which isn't very fast. He took me to another room where he thought the signal would be better. It was but the speed was still mediocre. I used the Internet for a while and then the password expired. I had to go to the desk and get another one. At times the speed of the Internet drops to the point I can't even load the speed test web site. The next day the Internet was totally unusable. I needed to look at a map and I couldn't get google maps to load.
The water pressure is terrible and when this is combined with the low-flow faucet heads the result is annoying. Filling a cup of water takes over 20 seconds. The room does not have any carpet, which in some ways I like but I think it contributes to the fact that it's noisy. There is one towel in the bathroom. The others aren't just outside the bathroom door by the sink. no, they're on the opposite wall about seven feet from the bathroom door.

... the occasional brown and white odd ball, all eating grass and making milk, I suppose. After all, this is Wisconsin...cheese country. I find these cows the prettiest cows, they remind me of palomino horses.
This is middle America and the people are kind and friendly…that is, until you meet them on the road, where some of them are rather rude. Certainly not like the bible belt where my life in Little Rock, Arkansas taught me how kind ...
... Stop: Rancho Motel and RV Park located in the "blink of an eye" Wolf Point, MT on Rt. 2.. Other than looking like a place where you want to stay indoors and keep your doors locked, it provided the only RV refuge within 50 miles in the middle of nowhere. The people here were rough looking but only hand working folks or people passing thru, like us.
Sunday, We got to our destination of Downstream Campground located in Fort Peck, MT.
This entry is only to keep my map current. We came across the eastern part of North Dakota, past Fargo and into Minnesota where we stayed at a great city park for the night. All grass and, with ************e there, peaceful.
I went for a run in the morning and then we headed across Minnesota towards Duluth...past ALL those lakes in Minnesota! So many of them.
... we focused on the woodchipper. A corner of the building was dedicated to Fargo, the movie (again, not about Fargo) - there was a script for the woodchipper scene, promotional materials, and the piece de resistance. For me, the highlight was the extra ridiculousness generated by providing props. Loved every bit of it!
... comes along. Here are some examples:
One day in Wyoming, I was riding the prairie hills in 100 degree heat and feeling a little shaky and. nauseous. With 12 miles to go to the next town, I had to stop to lie down for a bit in the roadside grass. I was awoken from my nap when a car pulled up. A Spanish gentleman simply walked over and handed me a half-gallon jug of water. He just waved, got back in his car, and left.
In a restaurant in Eagle ...
