We stayed here on a trip back from the west. Only 10 minutes or so from the interstate - the route was well-marked - and we had no trouble finding it even after dark. I agree with the other reviews - simple, comfortable and reasonably priced. Friendly staff - I left my jacket behind and they mailed it to me... More

I found this place well-spoken of on TripAdvisor. The reviews are fair. It's a nice quiet place with comfortable beds at a very fair price. I was checked in by the owner. It's always a good sign when you deal with the owner instead of some hotel clerk. He told me about some places to eat dinner and breakfast options... More

Halfway between Kansas City and Rushmore, the perfect spot for a quick nights rest before continuing the drive to the Black Hills. Very good breakfast and a surprising room that had a flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed and friendly staff. The couple that run the hotel bend over backwards to make sure your visit is a success. If... More

At first glance, you think, "Boy! This is going to be a hole in the wall." And, you would be completely wrong. We stayed there the night of 9/1/14. Upon entering the lobby, I was met by the owner of the motel. The check-in was fast and the owner was very pleasure-able. I asked him about places to eat since... More

Nice little motel along our route. Had room 11A and it was very comfortable. Enjoyed listening to the rain of a thunderstorm through the early morning hours. (We are in a severe drought in California.) Nice hot breakfast in the morning. The owner gladly made us pancakes even though we got there after the end of the serving time.

Booked hotel while traveling and due to situations beyond control, could not make it. Clerk said he didn't care and would run my card anyway even though I didn't permission. Do not know the value or cleanliness of the hotel since I didn't stay.

Very nice quiet hotel. Great location, away from the noise of the city and Interstates. Breakfast had some to be desired, but other than that we were very satisfied. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were large and very clean, had all the extras. Being able to park outside your hotel room is a big plus! Parking lot was... More

This is a great hotel and town to spend the night. Very friendly staff and very clean rooms There are a couple of nice diner-type restaurants in town with great food. We will definitely stay here in the future when we pass through the area. They are also very motorcycle-friendly and this is a great place to stop on the... More

I was looking for a location roughly equal distance to four towns I intended to visit, and heard about the Best Western U-Bar Motel in Canistota, SD, 32 mi west of Sioux Falls. I was surprised there was a motel this far off I-90, especially being affiliated with a national name like Best Western. (Not really far off I-90, just... More

This amazing little town of Canistota has several motels due to the popular chiropractic clinic there. We chose U-Bar due to the excellent reviews other travelers had left. We felt very comfortable and were pleased with our room, which had a kitchenette & table. If we needed to bring food, we would have been comfortable using the dishes and refrigerator.... More
