Very close drive to the areas attractions. Im glad I stayed here instead of a chain motel . It is nice to... More

We stayed for 3 nights while on vacation to see sites around the area such as Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial and what others we could in a day day period. The owners and staff were all great and friendly. The room, although a bit small was perfect for the two of us. It was clean, kept up well... More

Great location to see all the local attractions. We stopped here on our way to Mt. Rushmore. This motel was very clean, the staff friendly and accommodating. The Lazy U is owner operated. We found the beds to be comfy, and the bedspreads without a wrinkle. They offer no extras, such as shampoo, but the price was reasonable and there... More

Thanks for the review. You hit all the high points :) We do try to keep your cost down by not including all the frills the chain motels have. We do have blow dryers, irons and yes, shampoo for free if you ask for it, in the office. More

We stayed for a week and checked out on the 5th of July. Our stay at The Lazy U was the best hotel/motel experience we've had in all of our travels. The owners were excellent host. Very helpful as to area attractions and advice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Pet friendly rooms meant that our dogs were as... More

Verlyn liked the "stepped back in time" description. It lets people know we are not a boutique motel with all the fancy add ons. We try to offer a clean comfortable room at a reasonable price. Thanks for the review. More

We stayed here four nights on our motorcycle cross country trip and it was a fantastic place. We love the mom and pop places especially since they are fading out with all the chain places out there now. Fresh coffee and donuts each morning, very clean rooms with refrigerator and microwave. Parking right at your door and very biker friendly.... More

Our party of five stayed at the Lazy U Motel for three nights in late July of 2014. The purpose of our trip was to visit the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Custer Park and Sturgis, prior to the Motorcycle Rally crowds arriving. The Lazy U provided our group with great lodging and a central location. Verlyn and Cindy run a... More

Hey Scott, thanks for your review. You are not the first person to leave a personal item in the rooms. Our housekeeping staff is great at letting us know right away so we can try to call before you leave town. Your group was a pleasure to work with, hope to see you again next year. More

We stayed at Lazy U Motel for three nights in late July. The check in experience was quite easy and the staff was fantastic. Receptionist provided very needed maps and recommendation of the area restaurants. The hotel is very friendly to motorcycle riders and also provided an area we could clean our bikes. The room was very clean and the... More

Thanks for your review, especially regarding the colored linens. We took the idea from another mom and pop a few years past. We didn't like putting stained towels in the rooms, nor did we like tossing a perfectly good towel just because of a blemish. As for the shampoo, we do keep some in the office if someone does not...

Thanks for the kind words, but sorry about the neighbors. One of the reasons Verlyn and I live at the motel was to be able to address these very issues, in person, as they happen. This won't help you for your last stay, but for future visits, please call us. We very politely tell them to shhh :) They don't... More
