Breakfast of toast and jelly does not cut it. We would have liked a place closer to rapid city but this is well worth the price. The harleys starting their bikes before 7 was inconsiderate but the motel cant really do much about that. Make sure you get a 1st floor room as these are nonsmoking..great place for the price.

This hotel was consistent with what I had read about it on Trip Advisor, thank you. In today's world, it is a very good value. All staff were friendly and had time for any questions that I had. Toast bar in morning is very simple but that it how it is advertised so I was not disappointed. Rooms are adequate... More

I will admit when I first saw the price for this place I was bit leary but read good reviews. We stayed for 3 nights in June. Great bang for your buck. We found this deal on priceline and a great find. If you want a friendly, clean and no frills place to stay this is it. Where else can... More

What can I say? We booked our stay online because of all the great reviews. We arrived later in the evening and were told all that was left was a smoking room because apparently on booking.com you have to specify you want a non-smoking room. The friendly lady at the desk, who was the only staff on hand in a... More

I have not always had a good experience booking a hotel from the internet. This time was an awesome exception. The price is phenomenal and we received amazing service, the staff is friendly and helpful. The cleanliness is above and beyond what I was expecting for the price. We were so impressed that we stayed for 2 nights and drove... More

My wife & I stayed for three nights. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. The room was big and clean. The bed was comfortable. We were greeted with a smile at the service desk by Kathleen. She is an asset to the property, and keeps the toast, juice, and coffee area well stocked. We will stay here again if we... More

We experienced a freak winter blizzard in Oct '13 with estimated 56 inches of snow,.The entire city of Lead was snowed in! The management told everyone in the motel that it was not safe and that we needed to bunker down for 2-3 days together. Everyone worked together to make it a good experience, They left the conference room open... More

We spent 2 nights here over Martin Luther King weekend. Good deal at $50/night. Room was small and older, but clean. Shower had good water pressure which felt great after a full day of skiing. We spent no time in the room other than to sleep. Took a taxi into Deadwood 1 night and it was $9 each way, so... More

We were very disappointed. We had made a reservation for 2 nights but could only make it through 1. It was dirty and outdated. The room was hot and we could not turn on the AC because the unit and filter had a half inch of dust on it. It looked like the room had not been vacuumed. The hotel... More

We stayed here on the way to see Mt.Rushmore and this place was great. Room was really cheap, clean, huge and soundproof. The woman at the front desk was very friendly too. The room itself was a little outdated but who cares. You don't see it anyways when you're sleeping.
