The room we were in had a Fireplace and it was very cute! Everything was clean other than the remote that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. I had to clean it before wanting to touch it. The AC unit is right next to the bed and was very loud. It also couldn't cool the room to the... More

Quiet place, no hassles, easy access to 90. Staff doesn't bother you. Everything provided to keep your bike clean. Bar/food next door but not too close. Grill outside with stores close by. Will go back. Stayed there Aug 2012.

Patty was super nice and helpful! We enjoyed our stay and slept great! It was convenient to town and to the ride through the canyon. It was nice to have a grill to cook on and relax and enjoy the evening. I hope that we are able to stay here again!

Patty has a really nice little motel. It is clean, comfortable on a scenic drive so lots of motorcycles to see. There is a Bar & Grill two doors down (good drinks, ok food) It is away from the noise of the rally but as close as any for riding anywhere. I would stay here again for sure!

The motel is better than a camping cabin at a State Park but not as good as a Super 8. It had a shower, sink, toilet, tv, and small refrigerator which a camping cabin does not. It needed to have soap, shampoo, and rolls of toilet paper provided!. The room also needed to have a desk chair and more electrical... More

TERRIBLE experience! While the room seemed quaint and cute when we first got there, the ac window unit was so loud that we couldn't even hear the tv. The place advertised ad having free wifi but we were given no password and after several attempts to contact the owner, I still had not password and no ability to turn in... More

We arrived late in the evening, after driving all day from OKC. Needless to say, my friend and I were both exhausted. We were called by the hotel manager earlier in the afternoon, letting us know that the room would be unlocked and the key would be on the table, as she would be unavailable for part of the evening....

This was a terrific place to stay. Just minutes from Spearfish Canyon and close to town. Property was very clean, well maintained, and quiet. The owner (Patty) was very helpful and friendly. She has only owned the property for about 6 months and is remodeling the rooms, they are very nicely decorated. The price is very reasonable. We stayed there... More

This motel is at the mouth of Spearfish Canyon. The caretaker is very helpful and if you have any problems she responds to them immediately. This is very affordable and the rooms are being up-dated. There is a restaurant right next door and the location is quiet. There is a walking path close by and a creek right behind the... More
