We stayed at the U-Bar Motel after a long drive from Illinois. Located outside Sioux Falls, we were hoping for a little peace & quiet and boy did they deliver. The motel is located in a small--really small town with nothing much else around but residential property thus the peace & quiet. The owner tried his best to make us... More

The outside of this hidden gem looks a little tired and unimpressive but take a chance and you will get everything you need and more for a great price! Motel is tucked away in a tiny residential location, therefore, beautiful, sleep inducing peace and quiet! That is after you enjoy the relaxing effects of the jacuzzi tub. The friendly and... More

I-90 through S.D has the same speed limit for cars and trucks, Why don't all states do that? Much safer. Rest area every 50 miles, very clean and well maintained. Friendly folks. Smooth roads and i appreciated that as i was hauling an antique tractor back to Idaho from Minnesota.

Great price, Very clean and updated room. Quiet and peaceful. Good breakfast with individual service. Would definitely stay again if in the area.. Owners provided suggestions and directions for local attractions and restaurants.

Concerned about you as a person, not just a client. Welcoming staff and atmosphere. Loved the heat lamp in the bathroom! While it's off the highway, it certainly gives you bang for your buck. With single rate at $55 dollars, it was the best hotel I stayed in over my Christmas break. The room was clean, and welcoming... I felt... More

VERY nice accommodations. Rooms are updated and comfortable. Very impressed that they offer hard-boiled eggs for protein with the 'continental' breakfast. Very few places give protein options. Small glitch in that I had to take some of the body gel from outside the bathroom sink area to use in the shower. That, or use the face soap. They supply little... More

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
