This hotel is not fit for human habitation. Wet carpet with bugs. Dirt caked on floor of shower. Bedding reeks with stench of animals. Filthy. Disgusting. Inconceivable this hotel is allowed to operate. I will locate owners and demand a refund on my money and will also be reporting this hotel to the proper local and state health officials. DO... More

My family and I made a reservation at the Capitol Inn & Suites. We arrived on time at just around five a.m. and planned on leaving just a few hours later at checkout time 11:00 a.m for a quick powernap before driving the rest of the 9 hour trip. Anyway, with the advice of their front desk (not Expedia), we... More

My go to stay in Pierre, it's the best cheap option in town and has all I expect for the price. I've had some good stays here. Sorry to see the other poor reviews and bad experiences. I'd recommend it though and would stay again.

My significant other and I stayed at this motel. We paid for one night. In the morning, before we left for the day, we paid for another night. When I returned to the room, my key wouldn't work. So I went to the office. They said I didn't pay, that I owed 58.00 when the room was actually 47.00. They... More

I don't have very high expectations, but this was very disappointing. Checked in late after a long day of sightseeing. Poorly lit, bedding lumpy and discolored. We got the two bedroom suite, the table legs were so broken the table was unusable, there was a ladder in the middle of the living area, and one of the bathrooms reeked of... More

We've stayed here before in the past, but it has been a while and things can change. We like the Terrace in town here (old favorite), but they had no room so we stayed here. There have been some scary reviews recently, and we were worried. The room was fine. OK, not 5-star, but in keeping with the price and... More

We booked a room through hotwire.com and got this place. First thing we noticed was two police officers patrolling the parking lot. Once in our room it was so outdated, which was less of an issue than the hair that was in the shower and on the sink. We asked to be moved to another room, and it was actually... More

This motel was not very good, there was lots of banging from other rooms complain to office and they did nothing I would not stay there again. did not get any rest at all, and my kids were scared that someone was going to come into the room because of all the noise.

Upon opening the door it was freezing in the room although the heat was set to 70. There was an 1/2 gap between the door frame and cigarette burns on the bed. Vents were caked in dust. after speaking to the front desk clerk about the heat she spoke to someone else and they said they knew it didn't work... More

The kitchen was infested with ROACHES! I lived that way for 3 months and tried killing them myself with items I purchased. After not being able to do it myself they got reported. Turns out the the entire hotel was infested and they brought in a professional to exterminate! Anyone living there at the time had to move out for... More
