First off, I want to say THANK YOU TO KATHLEEN. She was the only employee who went out of her way to make my stay a pleasant one. Colleen and the two gentleman who worked the front desk in no way made any attempt to assist with booking a local tour, or even getting my wifi working in the room.... More

This was a good deal place. Older but in good shape. Comfy lobby area. Coffee and juice 24/7. Beds were great. Firm, not saggy. Room was clean and everything worked. The shower was great. Second time I have stayed somewhere with one of these small shower heads that puts of a great flow of water. Got to find me one... More

I was there with my son-in-law for bike week. I had $140 in a sealed envelope. I got it out intending to take some of the money with me but decided against it. I set it on a table and forgot to put it away. Ordinarily I never leave anything of value out, but we were in a hurry and... More

Our room had the BEST shower of any hotel I've ever stayed in. They raise prices during bike week but not as high as a lot of the area hotels. Bed was comfy. air condit. worked great, tv and channels were good.

This is an older hotel so everything about it inside and out reflects that. Toast and beverages are the continental breakfest. The hot tub was good. Price is very good especially for rally time. Conveniently located a few miles up the hill from Deadwood.

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
