The Bestworsen Ramkota, the value here is the restaurant on the property and the restaurant personal. The front desk is 50/50, most everything is honestly outdated for the property. It seemed to do a good business so I expected for the price the furniture and under the beds would be clean, the pool would have more attention than given. I... More

We were there for 3 days for a convention - everything was great and the staff went above and beyond taking care of every detail. the break snacks and the main meals were very nice as well. Very good wifi coverage throughout the entire facility.

This is an old Best Western. Good place for any conference with rooms that are near by. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This is a good place to do business in this capital city town. Only wish the rooms were updated since the heat had two levels: hot or freezing cold.

We've stayed at this hotel many times in the past. It's not the newest but it's always been comfortable and they've been accommodating. They are working on updating. Now for the reason of my review: last year and this year I witnessed an exchange with the (same) bar manager and a customer which was totally inexcusable. Different customers but same... More

There was a warm welcome at the front desk. Rooms and common areas are clean and in good condition. some updating was underway while I was there. A very cool thing is that pricing in the restaurant is reasonable. Many hotel restaurant rates are outrageous simply because it is there and many people don't want to go out. Service and... More

Always nice to have a friendly smile and a great short conversation at check-in or out. Staff very considerate and helpful. Always enjoy staying at the Best Western in Pierre, SD. This was a business meeting/training event, everything went very well, refreshments were always taken care of and nothing but good comments were said.

A nice stay for Special Olympics State Basketball. The only problem was that some rooms do not have Micro or Fridge. If the hotel can add Micro/Fridge in all rooms, I would be happy. The pool was nice and the restaurant that I ate had good food. The room was nice and I enjoy the room if only they have... More

Not many choices in Pierre, South Dakota But this one needs updating. Upholstered pillows and bed throws, I don't consider sanitary for a motel room. Otherwise it was clean and maybe the best one can do in this town.

The rooms are dated and had a strong "air freshener" smell, making us wonder what odor was trying to be covered up. The hotel reminded us of a 1970's convention spot. Ice maker on our hallway was not operational. Our room overlooked a conference/meeting area- which basically meant we had our curtains pulled the entire time, otherwise we were staring... More

We had an unexpected stop in Pierre, SD and I chose this hotel b/c it had a pool and hot tub (reward for car trouble). The people were very nice.
