Very nice size room, staff helpful, clean, quiet and safe. Flat screen TV, coffee maker, microwave, refrig..... all really good. Bed comfortable, good Internet connection, coffee and donuts in the morning, nothing fancy but good Very reasonable rates given what you we're getting. And you can reach ALL of the tourist spots with a 20 minute to 1 hour drive.... More

I was very impressed with this motel. The managers and staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the price can't be beat. I would have no hesitation recommending this place to anyone staying in Rapid City.

My family of 7 were in Rapid City for the evening and trying to find a hotel that would sleep us all for less than $300. We got super lucky and found this place. It was well within our budget (1/2 the prices of the competitors) and the beds were more comfortable than rooms three times the price. We will... More

Rooms are functional and comfortable and have free internet which works. It is well located near town... More

We found this Motel listed in the S. Dakota state listing book for available hotels and motels. When we arrived in Rapid City a few days ago, we decided to check it out since the hotel we had previously used near Hwy 16 was gone. We were very pleased with the welcoming attitude of the person on duty who graciously... More

I was a little worried--the price was much lower than other hotels in Rapid City. But in this case--you get more than you paid for! The room was large and had a microwave, fridge, desk and nice flat screen tv. It smelled as clean as it looked. The towels were still the too-small, too-rough standard issue that you get everywhere.... More

The check in process was quick and painless, the managers were top-notch. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice size flat screen tv and a homey feel. The location is central to downtown Rapid and many activities. I'll stay there again!
