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

I booked this motel through a travel club that I belong to. I got a really good rate on it. My granddaughter and I traveled out to the Black Hills and stayed here our first night mainly to show her the Corn Palace. The owner of this motel is very personable and took care of a burned out light promptly.... More

Waited too long to make motel reservations for our trip to Mitchell SD for a reunion. I went online two months ahead of our planned trip, but that was too late to secure a reservation at a chain motel.No vacancy due to actives in Mitchell during the weekend of July 25! So I called the Coachlight, and much to my... More

Great motel. Owner was very helpful with making restaurant recommendations and driving directions to place we wanted to visit. Room was large and comfortable. Even though this motel is right on the Main Street it was very quiet. Would definitely go back.
