Room was large, updated and clean. Microwave/fridge in room. Staff friendly. Continental breakfast was pretty good - met expectations...but there is also a McDonalds and another restaurant almost next door. Definitely better than a lot of Motel 6s we've stayed at. Would stay here again! Cool mid century building. Close to the "Corn Palace".

Thank you very much for your review! We updated all of our guest rooms in May and I'm happy that you found them in good form! We are fortunate to have many great restaurants within walking distance and I'm glad you found that helpful. I love that you think our building is "cool", too! It definitely has the character that...

It is not often when I stay at a hotel that I can hardly think of anything negative to say about it. But this is one of those times. Thunderbird Lodge is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, and I would definitely stay there again if I were in the area! On the outside, the Lodge... More

I booked 5 rooms for my group on a motorcycle trip. I was "ribbed" as its not a chain place. We as a group were so happy. The manager checked us in and was so great. We like to have a few and he opened up his breakfast area to us and we had a blast. I would highly recommend... More

Clean, quiet and excellent price. Hot tub was an added bonus (much needed after riding motorcycle all day). Staff was wonderful and the lodge has the perfect location! Highly recommend this place for a good night's sleep!

We chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews paired with a nice low rate. All we were really looking for was a comfortable and reasonably priced place to relax for one night on our way out to the Black Hills area, and Thunderbird Lodge provided what we were looking for. Check in was fast and friendly. Room and beds were... More

Opened the door to our room and it was hot and musky smelling. We went to Kmart and bought ourselves a fan and some room fresher. We were gone about 2 hours came back and the room was still warm. We called and reported it. About 40 minutes later a man knocked on the door and said he was maintance.... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I apologize that you didn't have a satisfactory stay. I was made aware of the AC problem in your room that night and it should be noted we immediately offered to move you to another room or replace the AC right away. At your request we waited to see if the... More

The check-in fellow gave us several options for safe places to park our motorcycles. The recommendation to eat at the Cattlemen's Club next door was a good recommendation, although you better like BEEF!

Researching brought me to this hotel, booking for our traveling west first night stay. The room was very large, very clean, nice frig (which was perfect for our vacation traveling food overnight). The air worked great and the beds and pillows were comfy. Bathrooms with the toilet and shower are a bit small, with the sink and vanity outside so... More

We stayed here in July of 2015 as we were moving our son from one house to another. The service was excellent. Very friendly and the maid even picked up our dirty clothes and put them in a laundry bag. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice. The beds are a bit hard but I have found... More
