Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Thoughtful accommodations - green TV remote, Keurig coffee pot in the room. Comfortable beds. Continental breakfast was exceptional. Nice food and drink choices.

We drive from Chicago to Montana once a year so this was our third time staying at this hotel. It seems to have deteriorated a bit since our stay last year. When we attempted to open the door to our room, something was catching on it and we could not get it open. This was no surprise to the clerk... More

I am very sorry about the door not functioning correctly. I was not aware about this at the time. When I saw your review I took full action and fixed the door right away. I thank you for letting us know this I will let the receptionists know to communicate more often to each department. I will also stress to... More

We are on our way west from Ontario, travelling by motorcycle. This property was very happy to provide cleaning cloths for us to use to tidy up our bikes - a terrific service! Rooms were clean and tidy, bed was comfy.

Very nice hotel. Clean, nice decor, very comfortable beds, strong internet, nice clean indoor pool (very warm), printer to use in lobby. Delicious hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal and lots more. We got a great price ($75) for a room with 3 beds. Very pleased.

In our travels we have stayed at a few different Best Western motels and this one was one of the best. The room was clean and the whirlpool in the room was a nice bonus; very relaxing after a long day riding the motorcycle. Restaurants and a movie theater within walking distance also added to an enjoyable stay. A good... More

We were on our way home from Rapid City SD after spending some time touring the Black Hills area and decided to stop for the night at Best Western. It was a nice place with a decent breakfast with a clean room. The front desk was very pleasant and helpful.

No real complaints about this place, but there was a tv in the breakfast nook. The tv was parked on Faux News, and there was no remote control!!! I tried to tune out the non-stop whine of white men complaining about taxes (no exaggeration), but I eventually had to get up and take my breakfast upstairs. This is bad business,... More

We are very sorry about the Fox Channel being on during your breakfast time. We do have the remote held behind the desk. For the future we do take request to turn the channel, turn the TV down or up, and simply turning the TV off. We like to accommodate all guest during their stay. We apologize we couldn't do... More

When my husband researched the area and suggested the Best Western for our one night stay in transit to South Dakota, I stuck my nose up at it. Really, how great could it be for $85 a night? Well, I was mistaken! It was one of the nicer hotel rooms we have stayed at. Very clean, decorated nicely and met... More

Delivered on what you expect from a Best Western Plus. The room was clean. The shower had good pressure and a high head. The bed was soft and comfortable. Nice rooms with a good sized sitting area. TV has lots of channels and the wi-fi was reasonably fast and free. The staff was friendly and the front desk offered a... More

In three weeks traveling coast to coast and back, we've stayed at 9 different best western hotels and this one by far exceeds them all. I rarely give 5 stars, but Friendly staff greeted my kids and I and the room was very clean and well appointed. The beds and pillows were clearly an upgrade from previous hotels and there... More
