1. From Joan Edwards re: Marty Mulder, motel owner in Watford City, North Dakota:

Actually, the motel is not the only motel in town. But it is the nicest. I stayed there last summer and Marty was a most accommodating host. The motel has a pool as well as an in-house laundromat. Many oil rig crews stay there because it feels like a home away from home.
