Stumbled across this motel when I missed the driveway of another motel I was heading to. Surprised at the excellent quality of the room/beds/cleanliness/wifi speed/water pressure etc. I I would recommend this to anybody that wants a great room at a fair price.

Family-owned is always my first choice for hotels, restaurants, whatever. You can't beat the personal service and dedication of people who are personally vested in the success of their business. If you're looking for a modest but extremely clean and well-maintained place to lay your head, this is it. I've stayed in dozens of hotels and motels, some pretty dive-y,... More

The staff was amazingly helpful! The rooms were clean and pretty. Can not say how much the staff helped with directions and advice as to the best places to see and eat. They were wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Our family stayed here 2 years ago, so this was a return visit for us. This time, our group had 6 people, all adults. We had a room with 3 queens, which, with the senior rate, was only 89. plus tax. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom very clean, the bedspreads nice, and the tv/fridge worked fine. The room... More

As I'm writing this review we are staying at the motel. Just checked in for the 2nd night so that we could go to the Central States Fair. My sister and I stayed in the motel at the end of May and I liked it so much that I decided to stay here again. When my sister and I stayed... More

Nice clean motel where you felt they genuinely cared about making your stay pleasant. Rates are reasonable and within 16 minutes to the airport. We stayed in a room under a second floor so you can hear MINOR foot traffic. If this is a concern just ask for a room in the one story portion but I would not hesitate... More

Great little hotel, with easy access to Mt. Rushmore area attractions, as well as the interstate to take you to further off locations. Motel was quiet and clean, with a comfortable bed and a great shower. Wi-fi worked fine. Owners were friendly and helpful about the general area. We didn't spend too much time here, but we would definitely stay... More

We are actually staying here as I write this review. Older place but very clean with very accommodating owners. We are here at a very busy time of year and they did their best to keep us in the same room for our 3 day stay. We have a trailer with ATV's which we wanted to leave at the motel... More

The local couple that restored thus classic 50's motel did a quality job of it. I spend a lot of nights in 3 and 4 stars on business and the room we had was cleaner. There was no odor of cleaning products either, which is a big plus in my book. Plus the window opens so you can turn on... More
