We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and we were extremely pleased with our experience. The rooms were clean and well maintained. This is a family owned hotel and the owners are the nicest people and you can tell by the pride they take in their little motel. The coffee was fresh and delicious in the morning and... More

Spent the night at the Lazy U on our way to Mt Rushmore and Black Hills. Quaint and friendly motel. Excellent service. Older rooms were clean but smaller in size. Bathroom was pretty tight but functional and clean. Good price value except for the bed. Although it was a queen size, the edges on both sides roll off so that... More

Thank you for the feedback on the mattress in your room. We inspected the bed and found the box springs had been broken causing the roll. We have ordered a replacement. Information such as yours is what keeps the rooms as comfortable as they are. More

Stayed here during a week long visit to the area. The family who own the motel were marvelous. The rooms were neat and clean and fully equipped with both a refrigerator and a microwave. An added bonus were complimentary coffee/tea and freshly baked donuts from a local bakery. The motel sits along a major roadway, so there are also lots... More

Thanks for the kind words Rob. The room you were in is usually great for families with kids, enough room for a play pen or blow up mattress. I'm glad you like the shower. Verlyn is a tall guy so thinks of these things when replacing shower heads. More

I booked a room at Lazy "U" back in January when I was putting the final touches on our summer roadtrip. I booked them based on reviews from TripAdvisor. I spoke with Verlyn, one of the owners of the motel to book the room and he was so friendly on the phone. The rate to stay here cannot be beat... More

Driving into Rapid City on the I 90 we were overwhelmed with the dozens of chain hotels and restaurants all very busy. We had hoped to use a coupon from a booklet we had found at a visitor center for one of these chain hotels. After stopping at a couple and being laughed at for even asking about one of... More
