Being a truck driver hauling oversize and snowed in for two days, I found this motel to be a great place with close parking, clean rooms, and homemade breakfast. The owners were very nice and good company as well. Would have given it five stars but she puts the toilet paper on backwards. Over the top, Barb. Over the top.

Good motel for the money. Rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. They even serve you breakfast in the morning. They have a bar there and a restaurant next door. They are pet friendly for people looking to bird hunt.

I stay at this hotel 4-5 times per year during my travels on I-90. For the price, you will not find a better value. My room had a refrigerator, microwave and flat screen TV. I have always found the rooms to be very clean and odor free. It is an older motel but it is well maintained and kept up.... More

The room was clean and comfortable and inexpensive, so we liked the place a lot for that. But when I left, I forgot my backpack by the front desk and didn't realize it until I was 13 hours drive away. Fortunately they had the backpack at the hotel and boxed it and shipped it to my house for me! Very... More

When I first called to see about making a reservation, the lady who answered the phone made me feel like I was interrupting something more important. . . Make sure you have your own soap and shampoo. And watch the crumbling tub . . . When I arrived the room smelled STRONGLY of something . . . not sure what,... More

We found this place on our way to the Black Hills. What a surprise for a small motel! It doesn't look like much but it was great on the areas that matter most to me....affordable, VERY clean, and a super comfortable bed!!! Our room, 112, had a king bed and bunk beds. Basic furnishings but I liked the bedspread. It... More

We have stayed here twice on our trip to Sturgis. They do not gouge the prices like everyone else does the week of the Rally. This is a family owned and operated business and is one of the best stops on our 4000 mile round trip from East Tennessee to Montana. Look forward to our next trip already.

A clean and comfortable room. Quiet area with a lovely sunrise. The breakfast was delicious. Egg/sausage/potatoes casserole with the fixings and a wonderful cinnamon roll to top it off. Real food is the right way to start the day.

I picked the place based on the other reviews. It isn't like other hotels, but for the price you can't beat it! The rooms are clean, cleaner than most chain hotels I've stayed at, and the owners are super cool, down to earth and they rocked breakfast! I kind of felt like I was visiting family!
