As the drills and wells move, so does Target Logistics — this time to McKenzie County, North Dakota, where we will open the Watford City Lodge in mid-September. The Lodge will feature three peaked-roof, two-story dorm buildings connected by hallways to the social centers of the Lodge, which will house the kitchen, dining room, Internet café and fitness center. There will also be a fully furnished rec room with a flat-screen TV plus billiards, foosball and card tables. The Lodge will consist of both Jack and Jill style rooms with shared baths as well as 36 oversized suites with full beds and a furnished lounge area. As with all our lodges, there will be a mudroom to keep the carpet that runs throughout the lodge clean and dry. And each floor will feature six sets of stacked washers/dryers to make things more convenient for our guests. Not only are the washers/dryers free to use, but so is the detergent, which automatically dispenses into the machines. Located just north of the city off of Highway 85 and County Road 35, the Watford City Lodge offers guests all the signature Target Logistics comforts, including our Hibernator Sleep System™, oversize towels, 24-hour food service (featuring hand-cut French fries) and 24-hour security.
