This reminds me of a stay at a newly-opened Americinn in Lakeville, Minnesota. We asked for a nonsmoking room and were told there were none available. Then the clerk continued, "But this is the first night we're open, so no one has smoked in the smoking rooms yet." We took the smoking room. :-)

Linda-It was fun to stay in a brand-spanking new property. I suspect it will become pretty popular with out-of-town ND football fans as it becomes better known, but for the weekend we were there it was quiet and reasonably priced.

Smoking vs. non-smoking rooms should become less of an issue as more states enact some sort of smoking ban (Michigan's just went into effect in May). The most miserable experience I had staying in a room was one we were forced to take in a small town in Ontario that just reeked of stale cigar smoke smell!
