The best thing for this bargain hotel was the cleanliness, which is no small thing. It's more for fishermen and hunters who need a reasonably-priced place to crash rather than tourists. The park by the river was within walking distance which was great for sunsets. Complimentary breakfast was very small, no tea, and the lobby had only a few pieces... More

Our room at River Lodge was quiet and roomy. It just felt old and it smelled as if someone had been smoking in it. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room was on the second floor and there is no elevator so we were dragging luggage up two flights of stairs. After we checked in we went... More

In terms of the cleanliness of the room, there was nothing to complain about. However, the room we had was situated above what must have been the air conditioning vent, anyway whatever it was, the noise was pretty unbearable and it kept us up all night! Breakfast was okay, not as much offered as we had found at other hotels... More

Clean, new beds, soft water, sufficient breakfast, iron, knowledgeable service, location, excellent value....add a desk lamp and you'd have it all! Not a 5 star property, but a solid 4 approval from a business traveler.

Very nice and clean room. The bed was comfortable and not hard at all. We only stayed one night but we would definitely stay here again on our way through Pierre. The hotel is close to restaurants and right next door is a gas station for snacks,ect. Price was very reasonable. We enjoyed our stay.

This hotel was good enough for the one night we spent there. The internet was weak, which was disappointing. The room was spacious, and the beds were of medium comfort. The breakfast was fairly typical, although no fruit or yogurt was offered. The location was good, close to downtown, and the highway, and the nice riverside park area. After a... More

This facility was well-maintained with friendly staff and a convenient location. Apparently catering in part to the fishing community, there were several boats on trailers in the limited-size parking lot, although finding a parking space did not prove to be a problem during my stay. The hotel is also pet-friendly, and I encountered a couple of other guests with dogs... More

Conveniently located on Hwy 83 in Pierre. Clean and comfortable. Served better than average selection of breakfast items. Good TV programing with channel guide. Lots of electrical outlets. Free secured wifi. Convenient parking. Refrigerator not working in Rm 128, but as we checked out, the management was prepared to install a new unit. Very good climate control. Would stay here...

My wife and I stayed one night in the River Lodge. It's clean and quiet, and adequate as a place to sleep. I'd stay there again, but with another plan for breakfast. Their "breakfast", located in a cramped area of the front entry, was completely unappealing to us.

My sister and I had the pleasure of staying at the River Lodge on the last night of our trip. The room was very clean and the hotel itself smelled really clean and fresh. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful as well. I would definitely stay here again!
