Friendly front desk lady. Found a large room with three queen beds. Clean room. Bathroom exhaust fan was rather loud. No exercise room. In-door pool, no spa. Basic continental breakfast. Loud door closing sounds from fellow travelers. We ended up staying in the same room a few days later.

Exhausted, we needed a place to stay and the place we usually stay was full. Got a room here and the lady at the front desk was more than helpful - she really was great! The problem is the room. Refrigerator roared, but not as badly as the furnace...must be out of balance or something. On the other side of... More

I'm sorry that your stay was not comfortable and that room does have a vending machine and guest laundry on the other side of the wall. We will check with the vender and closely monotor the time the laundry is used. The mattresses in the room are 2 years old and are firm, so I apologise for the discomfort. More

After our experience at the Super 8 in Belle Fourche that same evening, we took off and started looking for another place to stay for the night in town and saw Econo Lodge. Afraid that the place might be another dump, my husband kindly asked the lady at the front desk if we could take a peak inside their room... More

I took a summer road trip that included 25 hotels so I am rating each hotel to pay it forward to others for helping me chose my hotels. I am a choice hotel Platinium member for years. This hotel rates a 'D-'. No issues with the bikers and their fun, that was our mistake to pick that weekend. Apparently anytime... More

Reasonable for the price..except during bike week. Nice shower, clean bath and accommodating manager, pet friendly. Newly carpeted. Worth a repeat visit but breakfast could improve with very limited fare available. Nice proximity to restaurants.

Nice property, Great price, Limited breakfast. Close to Mt Rushmore without the high prices of hotels there. Hopefully Trip Advisor will get the message and change the brand of the hotel from Motel 6 to EconoLodge.

This is the 2nd time staying here, and the Motel 6 is now EconoLodge. It was as clean as the first time--bathroom was pristine white. Employees were very friendly. With the transition to EconoLodge, breakfast has been added but it is the standard economy-chain fare: if you want to get fat and carbs, better to at least get some taste... More

Very nice and very clean. The staff was very nice also. All in all one of the nicest motel 6 we've ever stayed in. And that's a lot we're in a semi truck and stay all around the United States. First time I felt like I could take shoes off and felt good about it.

We chose this location based on other Trip Advisor reviews and were very happy with our stay. This is a newer location with large rooms...in fact, I don't believe I have ever been to a Motel 6 with rooms this large before. The entire location was clean and in good repair, the room was very clean and equipped with a... More
