When booking this stay I was told that there was a handicap room for a relative traveling with me. When we got to the motel, the lady working there said there was no note that we needed a handicap room and there wasn't any other rooms available. The room we used wasn't accessable to a wheelchair. We had to lift... More

We wanted a nice, inexpensive hotel for our quick trip and this one worked great! The front desk staff were very friendly and quick. The location was literally right off the interstate, making it quick to get to all the surrounding sights. The bed was comfortable, we had a mini-fridge and microwave, and the room seemed pretty clean. Pool area... More

Dear Traveler5297, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Your positive feedback is always appreciated. I would, however, like to apologize for the lack of "protein" included with the breakfast during your stay. Eggs and sausage gravy are two items that should be on the breakfast menu every day, and I can not explain why they wouldn't... More

This hotel was a gem in the world of more over priced hotels in Rapid city! Very clean, updated rooms, amazing staff that was attenative to all of my needs! Building and parking lot seemed very safe and secure as well. Breakfast had a great selection, and plenty of room for seating. Will return to this hotel!

The front desk (Heather & Shannon) were awesome. They went above and beyond to make our stay an enjoyable one. The location was great for all the activities we ventured out on while in Rapid City. The breakfast staff did a nice job keeping the food well stocked. Our kids enjoyed the pool and pool toys they had on hand.... More

I booked five nights at this hotel in June based on the good Trip Advisor reviews. It was an okay stay other than some confusion about moving our luggage from a temporary room on the first night to the room we would have for the next four nights. Per the instruction of the lady at the front desk when I... More

Dear Wheaties59, We truly appreciate your feedback and taking the time to point out our shortcomings. I apologize for the confusion and lack of follow through by our staff regarding your luggage. As for the rudeness of the gentleman at the front desk, that is completely unacceptable and I believe we have taken the steps to permanently resolve that situation.... More

This hotel is right off the interstate and convenient to so many restaurants and attractions in the area. Room was quiet. Breakfast was adequate and the staff did a good job keeping plenty of food items available even with so many tour bus patrons staying there.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for ten days while visiting the Black Hills, and we both enjoyed our stay very much! The staff and management is friendly, and are also very accommodating. We will definitely be staying at this hotel again when we return to the Black Hills next year! :)

The area has expensive lodging because of Mount Rushmore (I'd presume) and this was expensive, but more economical than most. It's fairly well-maintained and the people at the front are very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't say there's anything luxurious, but it's clean and more than sufficient which is all it pretends to be. The continental breakfast is pretty good.... More

Nupester, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As you stated we don't pretend to be a luxury brand, after all we have "Value" right in our name. Rapid City and the Black Hills are a very popular tourist destination during the summer months and the increased demand tends to drive prices up. We try to maintain... More

Doloka, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for the stain in the carpet. We are in the slow process of updating the flooring in many of our rooms. We have moved that room to the top of the priority list. Thank you for the feedback. Eric Seljeskog More
