WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A tourism industry organization in North Dakota says the state's hotel availability is excellent with an inventory of more than 25,000 hotel rooms.

The Destination Marketing Association of North Dakota says the state added 6,552 hotel rooms between 2010 and 2013. Much of that growth has been seen in the state's oil patch.

Amy Krueger is the association's vice president. She says Williston has more than tripled its number of hotel rooms from nearly 600 to almost 2,000.

Krueger says the difficulty that some people used to face in finding a room for the night in the oil patch has been mostly alleviated.

The association says North Dakota had a 66 percent occupancy rate in 2013, slightly higher than the national rate of 63.9 percent.
