at Bismarck Municipal Airport,
There are 40 hotels in town. I landed at 10pm and because of the boom-bust oil business cycle had no problem getting a room on the top floor. But, something you wouldn't know from a night at the airport, the oil trains go through town every two hours. All through the night. And they are required by federal law to blow their whistle at every on grade crossing. Not a good night of sleep.
