I booked this because of price. I didn't want to go broke on hotel stays while on our vacation through Rapid City and Yellowstone. The computers were down when we checked in and one of our key cards didn't work but that was no biggy. The guy at the desk was very nice. I love that we just backed right... More

This hotel was inexpensive that is why we chose it however there was mold in the bathroom. The toliet was not bolted down. The bed spread had stains. And the sink knob came off when u touched it. And the floor hasnt been cleaned in years. Power flicked on and off. I wouldnt recommend .

The star rating on this hotel is a little off since I don't think it has been rated by too many travelers yet. It is an old hotel and it has been recently remodeled. I have too admit when I first pulled up I was a little sketched out by the looks of the old exterior. The rooms aren't bad,... More

Very affordable rates. Clean, large room was very comfortable. Convenient location in South Rapid City. Well lit parking area with plenty of spaces. We felt very safe here and would recommend this property.

From the front desk to the rooms and upon check out I was very pleased. This place has a cool vibe and super friendly people. If you find yourself in Rapid city for business or for a nice vacation you must stay here.

Certainly not a 'luxury' motel, but definitely very reasonable prices & it has some fantastic large rooms for families. I've stayed there a few times over the years. The last time was with my 3 sisters to have a Sister Weekend. Our room had Four double beds (one in a room by itself w/a door), so we each had our... More
