Here’s a grand tour of our new tools. We’d love to get your feedback, so please leave us a comment.

Minot Hotels

Hotel Availability Indicator is now LIVE! We have the pulse on Minot hotels and what their availability is which makes planning your overnight stay easy. Visit Minot, We're ready for you.

Find the tool on every page on the right-hand side. To start, click in the “Date | Check-In” box where you can click any date.  Our Hotel Availability Indicator has room information for the upcoming week as well as major upcoming events.

Once you’ve chosen your date, click “>SEARCH”

Now you have a helpful page filled with Minot hotel information and their immediate availability. When viewing from your mobile device, the phone number and address are one-click-to-call or get directions.

It’s easy to use this function, too. As you browse Minot hotels, restaurants, or businesses, just click on the “Map It” icon and, Voila!, that item is added to your custom Minot Map.
