We got a really good vendor rate, and they have a really good breakfast. The motel itself is starting to show wear & tear, and the housekeeping was not impressive. Over all, though, it's a decent place to stay.

Dear Linda H, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Yes some of the rooms are starting to show a little age. We are in the process of remodeling many of the outdated rooms. Hopefully by the time you return for the show next year we will have a lot more updated rooms. Don't be afraid to... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Everyone is always so nice and always wanting to help if they can. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Hot tub and pool are very clean. Nice lobby and breakfast.

I broke down with truck trouble in Rapid City on a Sunday evening in January 2015. Bad diesel in my pickup and pulling a small trailer. The staff was friendly and helpful, particularly Heather Whitehead, although everyone was very congenial. A young man staffing the desk pointed me to a dealer where he knew a mechanic and recommended them. The... More

I stayed here for 4 days for a training seminar and it was great! Very clean rooms, a pool and a hot tub, not to mention a refrigerator and microwave in my room! This hotel had more amenities that the more expensive ones in the area. I will definitely be staying here again and would highly recommend it to everyone.... More

As a truck driver, being broke down is never a pleasant experience. The staff here definitely made it more enjoyable. Courteous, friendly and efficient. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll definitely stay here!

I recently stayed at this hotel. The price was MUCH lower than surrounding hotels. The hotel was on the freeway so access to just about everything was just minutes away. The staff was incredible! When I had a question, I asked the first person I saw which might have been a laundry employee, someone from housekeeping or someone at the... More

I was impressed with the promptness and the accuracy of the staff. This facility was very well maintained and the cleanliness was over the top. The hot tub could have been hotter. It was a very nice stay.

We were broken down nearby and our shop recommended this hotel. We were amazed at the hominess of the lobby. The staff was extremely friendly. This place could have charged double and we would have still been ecstatic. VERY SERENDIPITY!

We looked for a smoking allowed room and found one at this hotel. There are doors to close off the smoking section of the hotel from the non smoking. The receptionist that greeted us was very warm and friendly. She went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. Lobby is nice as well as a small breakfast area... More

I stay at a lot of motels so for one to get anything above "average" they have to do something special, be it accoutrements or attitude. There wasn't anything special about what this hotel offered which isn't a bad thing. It was clean, bed was comfortable, shower hot & a typical motel breakfast of cereal, fruit, eggs, & those tasteless... More
