What a quaint little place to stay. They offer the best customer service we have ever received. Not only was the room clean, but when we ended up with having major car issues, they took awesome care of us. The owner helped arrange for the repair on the car. When the car rental place was unable to come pick us... More

My wife & I just returned from a trip to the Black Hills. We spent 5 nights at the Lazy U Motel in Rapid City. The motel is situated on Mt Rushmore Road. Easy to get to downtown and all the great attractions. Although the motel was built back in the late 50s, it's very well maintained. Our room was... More

We liked staying at this motel. We were traveling across country and we were looking for something different. It was inexpensive enough we could each have our own room, which was very nice. It is no frills. It does have a refrigerator and microwave. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and friendly. There is a Safeway grocery store right across the... More

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
