On our 3 week motorcycle trip one of our last nights was in the middle of South Dakota on rte. 90. It was hard to find a place. It truly lucked out when I stumbled upon Gerry's budget host. It's not fancy but the rooms are clean, it had good tv reception and a kicker breakfast all for under $60/night.... More

This place is old, and not very impressive at first glance, but do not be put off by that. The owners are extremely nice, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast................... FANTASTIC!!!!!!! She makes it herself, this isn't some ordinary continental breakfast, this is real food. We wanted something close to the Badlands, and the towns closer, were way over... More

Nothing fancy, but clean, friendly and exceeded our expectations. We had to stop due to a tornado alert and glad we did. The bed was new and good. There is not much to eat around so be prepared to buy something in advance.

A modest but very clean and comfortable. A homemade breakfast! Friendly and helpful owners. Recommend a stay here as it is a good value. Steak House restaurant next door so you can walk over. We will stop again.

We checked in late at night to an older but very nice room. No bad smells and no bugs and the beds were comfortable as well. Water pressure was great and the refrigerator was cold. We had a very restful nice sleep. The breakfast the next morning was incredible with homemade cinammon rolls and biscuits and gravy and other nice... More

We stopped overnight (on a friends recommendation) on the way to the Black Hills. Our family of 5 had plenty of room. The breakfast the next morning was great too. 1/2 the breakfast items were gone when we got there and there was still plenty to choose from. The decor in our room was newly redone so looked great, but... More

Our family of six needed a place to stay traveling back east from the Black Hills. Found this on TripAdvisor and glad for the suggestion. We stayed in a two room unit and it was great: clean rooms, good shower, but best of all was the homemade breakfast in the morning. Nice owners, too.

After a long drive and not knowing the area, we got off I-90 and found this motel. I had talked, by phone, to a man at the hotel, but when we arrived and pushed the door bell we got the wife out of bed. The reception room (lobby) was small and advertised a complimentary full breakfast but only had 1... More

Really friendly and helpful staff. Great value for the price. They serve a great breakfast, Not much else in town, but it was a really pleasant place to watch the sun set, and then get a good night's sleep on a long road trip.

Stopped here based on Tripadvisor reviews. Office was temporarily closed but owners had left 2 room keys and check in forms on a table outside the office with a note containing the room rates and saying to pay later. I liked the place already based on the owners' trust. Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. TV was on the... More
