We stayed twice with the military and it was disgusting! Ice machince was broken for over a month (we stayed in jan and feb) the vending machine had out dated food, rooms were not clean, musty and gross. We had food in our drawers. Yes bags of open chips. The next drawer had peanut butter and jelly in it. The... More

We selected this area where the Missouri River flows under I-90 solely on estimated drive time endurance. A quick glance at Google Street View showed me that this was part of a kitschy Western-town-themed complex including a supermarket, bank, souvenir store, restaurant and saloon, so we knew we'd have easy access to dinner and breakfast while freezing in South Dakota....

Traveling across SD on the way home, i remembered staying here with my Dad many years ago. Although a bit pricey ($101 with tax) for the evening, the room had a front and back door, was spotless, two large beds, and the pool and hot tub area were excellent. With the interior corridor I did not freeze on the way... More

This is one of those hotels that has paper for walls. And a convenient place for semi's to park in the back and idle all night. terrible night's sleep. But the bar/saloon across the parking lot was a fun, lively place with good bar food and beer.

Stayed here 1 nite while on the road. The outside of the motel needs some work, the weather stripping on our outer door was pulled away & hanging loose. The lady who checked us in acted like she was doing us a favor. The room smelled very musty & dusty, not clean & fresh. Turning on the air conditioner did... More

The rooms need to be updated. They are definitely outdated and worn. Our room had a horrible smell when we checked in. Thank goodness we had an outside door to air it out. Our smoke detector was daWould not recommend this hotel.

Affiliated with Kelly Inns. The motel's outside was nicely maintained and the lobby was neat and clean. It's easy to see from the highway and easy to get to. Our room smelled great when we entered . Both the room and bathroom were clean. There was a large work table, a recliner and 1 luggage rack (we used a chair... More

I review this place every time we come through and stay. This is a great place to end your day. Al's is an American classic trading post stop. It has been around as long as the pioneers but up-to-date in the 21st century. The Inn is very comfy and very quiet. The furniture is new and décor a cabin/western feel.... More

Stayed here on the way to Sturgis. The rooms were great, comfortable beds. Staff was fantastic. We made it a point to stay here on the way back home. We knew we would get a great room, good price and everything we need was right next door.

We stopped for one night, paid $92 ($102 with tax) for a room with two queens and as it was noted, no view. The window of Room 202 is blocked by a portion of the roof. We saw kitchy signs for Al's Oasis for miles along 90, but when we checked in and asked where Al was we were told... More
