It isn't just an oil boom underway in western North Dakota...everything seems to be growing.
One area that has seen massive growth is the number of hotel rooms available.
Amy Krueger is the director of Williston's Convention and Visitors Bureau.
She says the growth in the economy has meant a great need for the additional hotels.
Many are found on the north side of town near the airport...and even outside of city limits as well.
(Amy Krueger - Williston CVB Director) "We have gone from seven hotel properties, 607 rooms on the market in January of 2010 to today, we have 23 properties and 1967 rooms with another two hotel properties right outside of the city limits with another 500 rooms with those hotel properties."
More rooms...and more rooms are open.
Krueger says a drop off recently has rates down some...and added more options for travelers.
(Amy Krueger - Williston CVB Director) "We have seen a little bit of a decrease in occupancy in the last two months, but we expect that to bounce back up a bit. We are in the high 50 range so about 58-59 percent occupancy and that is according to Smith Travel Research. That is on average with where the rest of the state sits as well."
Krueger says typically, rates are highest during the week actually...making Williston weekend stays more reasonable.
She hopes the addition of the recreation center continues to bring more families to the region for visits.
