Two of our car windows were smashed within five minutes of check in. Items were stolen. I wish I would have paid closer attention to the Google reviews because this was not an isolated incident. Employee were NOT helpful. Do not recommend anyone staying here.

Got locked into a service area, had to call the front desk to get me out, directions to desk not clear, had to switch room in the middle of the night because the HVAC system was so loud, dirty towels in the hallways. Very disappointed. Didn’t even offer anything for having to move IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. They told me there was nothing wrong but the night staff heard it as well. Already canceled the next stay I had booked at an Aloft

I enjoyed my stay. It was a touch loud (thin walls) but not horrible on a weekday. Everyone was kind, and the place was clean and convenient.

ALOFT ND-OSU
There were no towels in our room when we first checked in. Our bed was never made throughout the entire stay. The trash cans were emptied on the second day but not on the third day. The room was mostly clean and had a nice contemporary look, but it was impractical. Other than one towel hanger on the shower door, there was no place to put/hang towels and face cloths (no shelves or covey holes). The wrap-around corner seat was very uncomfortable.
