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!

When you drive in, you think "is this the best there is?" But, bad weather was coming in and so you register. We were on our motorcycle. The owner checked us in and the room is not fancy, but clean and nice. Being a possible tornado was coming that evening, she found us a large storage area where we could... More

We were heading back from a 10 day vacation and ran into some bad weather with tornadoes in the area. We just by chance took this exit off of I90 and found this motel and they happened to have an open room. Wow what a find! The place doesn't look anything special on the outside, but the rooms were very... More

The rooms were spotless and all the bedding was all brand new. Older establishment but amazingly maintained!! The breakfast was definitely restaurant quality! Will stay again! The staff was wonderful!

We needed a place to stay after a long day and found this place. We came in late and she waited for us to arrive. She makes the breakfast in the morning and it was great! Rooms are neat and clean. Very reasonable rates. We would stop in again if in area.

We were traveling through South Dakota on our way home from a long trip and needed a room with an extra cot. Upon arrival, the owner had upgraded us to a three bed room with no extra charge. It was perfect for what we needed. No glamour or restaurants nearby but worked well for us.

We stayed here 3 nights during our annual pheasant hunt. Barb and Todd are the ultimate hosts. Homemade breakfast is provided every morning. Barb's homemade cinnamon rolls are to die for. This is a very comfortable, small town, hotel and by far, the best place to stay in the area.

My mom and I stopped here on a roadtrip from Seattle to Boston. Barb was amazing!!! Our room was clean, our beds were comfortable and breakfast was phenomenal. Barb even stopped us, when we started to drive off with the back of our moving truck open!!! Thank you for hosting us!

My wife and I were delighted with this place. Our room was super clean and Barb and her husband went out of their way to make our stay. Motel has great rates, lounge next door and a steakhouse across the lawn. We will stay again.

This was a great stop on our long drive. The owner, Barb, was very friendly and accommodating, even asking us if we had dinner when we arrived and offering to open her bar to heat us up a pizza if we had not. Our kids played with her dog in the field to run off some energy. The beds were... More
