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!

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

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!
