This hotel was fine for an overnight stay. Clean, but old and tired looking and the toilet was really small! The location was excellent, staff was nice and the hotel accomodated our dogs. There were to many people in the small breakfast room, so I dont know how the breakfast was.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. However, the beds were too firm and I didn't sleep well. The bathroom was also very small. Easy to find, right off I-29. It is an older hotel, but I didn't mind that. It was very hot and humid that weekend and the AC worked well.

The hallway decor is very reminiscent of the eighties. the carpets are stained. But it's obvious that they have been mostly vacuumed. although our refrigerator was broken the man was very fast to replace it. Literally within minutes. The bedding is cute. But, the beds are hard like something you would find in a 1990 motel room. On the good... More

It was 11 PM and I was having a difficult time finding a room at any price. thenight staff was very helpful and only charged me a single rate for a double room which I greatly appreciated. Very comfortable bed and quiet room. Walking distance of IHOP and a few other chain resturants.

Good value. We stayed one night on our way to the Black Hills. Room was clean and well equipped. Shower was hot and the bed was very comfortable. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was plenty for us. My husband had a cheese omelette that he said was quite good. All in all, a pleasant experience. Would stay there again.

We arrived for checkin at 2:00 a.m. only to find out our online reservation had been cancelled even after phoning to say we would arrive late. The man who greeted us was not the best suited for the job he was doing, although I assume he tried his best.

We stayed here one night because it seemed to be a convenient location off the interstate I-29 on our trip to the Black Hills. The hotel is old and the interior smells- carpets are old and not very clean looking at all in the hallways. The room was fair to average. The breakfast was OK. Beds and pillows had hair... More

Driving up to check in were attractive flowers planted in pots at entrance. The staff was most helpful providing directions, things to do and were extremely friendly. The room was a good size with lovely blue & white embroidered bedspreads. Clean. Each bed had four pillows but we travel with our own. There was also a desk, fridge (yeah), microwave,... More

My reservation was canceled due to it being held on my old card, which expired. The front desk person told me that we don't have any more of the rooms that I had reserved. The only rooms he had was a room with two beds, but he gave it to me at a great rate on a Friday night. The... More
