We kept having to change our reservation earlier and earlier and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We were given the room closest to the office which made it easy for my husband to get into the room and easy for me to haul the luggage and his oxygen machine. Nice roomy bathroom and everything was clean. Free coffee in... More

I grew up in Rapid City & recently went back to visit. I was so happy to see that this motel has been remodeled instead of torn down & replaced by a chain motel. You can not beat the price & location! Easy access to the best of the black hills. The suite I stayed in had a kitchenette that... More

I am local and I was really surprised in a good way that the room were as wonderful as they are. They are really big compared to other places I have stayed and paid alot more. They were also very clean. I used to be a assistant head housekeeper in the past so I'm usually really picky about the clean... More

We were looking for a quick stay while in the area for a trip and this hotel under cut everyone else and was very surprised how great the service and how friendly everyone was. The rooms were not the fanciest but they were clean and comfy. Would recommend to anyone family, couple, or single

Stayed during Sturgis. Great location, close to Black Hills, Reptile Gardens, etc. rooms were nice, a little dated perhaps, but they were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Secure area. I would stay again, and probably will when I return next year.

We booked this motel for the rally and got a great deal through Expedia. For the price we paid, I can't complain. There was plenty of parking, the air worked good, beds were comfortable but carpet definitely needs replaced. If we had been charged inflated "rally" prices, I would have chose another place.

Like others, we were not initially convinced that we had made the right choice with this roadside motel. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff at reception were very efficient and helpful. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Our room was equipped with the usual facilities including a fridge and microwave plus TV. Free coffee was available in reception... More

We booked this because of price. It is the perfect spot for day trips to Black Hills and Devils tower area. Easy access to Rapid City and points East. When we checked in the outside looked like your usual 1 or 2 star motel. Our room was great. It more like a suite. Very clean and comfortable. The staff, including... More

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 .

I would like to apologize for the stay that you had, as it sounds like you were very unhappy with the property. I am curious if this review was meant for another property though. I can assure you that our toilets are bolted down, our faucets do not fall off, and our carpets are vacuumed daily. From all the other... More
