We stayed here Feb 13 - 16 for the Powder Horn River Regulators Presidents' Day Cowboy Fast Draw Jackpot Shoot. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the service was friendly (the owner and my husband talked CLASSIC CARS!) & accommodating (desk clerk put us in room next to the people we rode with when asked), and the location was ideal...

If "Christian owner friendliness/pride" and great wifi is what you are looking for, it doesn't get any better than the Coachlight Motel. Front Desk staff (to include the most darling black lab) are excellent. However, the rooms here are OLD, TIRED and in need of a refreshment. Linens are VERY old, bugs in the bathroom, and flooring/rugs (in Unit 20)... More

We stayed at the Coachlight after a long day of travel, heading west towards the Black Hills and then Wyoming/Montana.. The owner was friendly, helpful with a quick check in and advice on a good place to eat that was family friendly. The room was no frills but clean, and the price couldn't be beat. The owner offered our kids... More

Went out for a hunting trip and this hotel was perfect!! Nothing extravagant but we were hunting. Parking stalls were extra wide (big plus with trucks), pet friendly, and a price you couldn't beat. Owner was accommodating and friendly as well. Beds are large and the room was just fine. As long as you don't need all the frills and... More

We stayed at this property on the last leg of a very long road trip. We got in late and had issues with the room. There were no decision makers on the property at check in so discussed the problems with the owner in the morning. He saved this review from being "very poor". He listened, understood, and made things... More

Everything you need, and not a lot of extra crap you don't. Our family of four reserved one room, and when we arrived at 11pm the owner offered us a free adjoining room so the kids could spread out! Unbelievable. Beds are firm, rooms very clean, cable TV, wifi, fridge, microwave, and coffee and donuts for breakfast. For a very... More

What it is- It's inexpensive, clean and comfortable. If you want a place to sleep, don't hesitate. The staff are super and there's good coffee in the morning. What it's not- It's not a Marriott. It's good basic accommodation at a great price.

We were making a trip to the Black Hills and needed a place to stop and stay along the way. As we always do we checked with Trip Advisor for a place to stay in Mitchell. This place had good ratings even if they were few in number the experienced travels gave it good marks. We made reservations for our... More

Quiet and clean, this is an older motel that is a bit threadbare but it is kept up by the owners. Inexpensive but the good ratings are deserved. Would stay here again instead of the overpriced Holiday Inn.

I don't believe I've ever picked a motel based on a rest area rack card but I did this time and it was a winner. The fact that it was described as family owned for 30+ years was a big factor in the choice and on arrival it was just what I expected. Had everything I need, was clean, and... More
