My boyfriend and I had a reservation for this hotel for 3 nights that we booked approximately 2 months ago. We arrived this afternoon to find a handwritten note on all the doors that stated that the hotel was closed until further notice.

Had a room booked here, and everything was okay when we checked a week ago. When we arrived today, the entire hotel was dark and empty - a note on the door said the hotel was closed until further notice, and no more information to guests. I would expected them to contact the guests that had already prepaid, or at... More

The hotel is a bit worn with need of an upgrade. I was there during the Sturgis Rally and it was ok. They did provide rags and a hose to wash bikes which was great.

Not the fanciest place or the newest but not much to choose from in town. The town is cute and has a small local street fair on Friday nights. The bed sucked was cheap and thin and wiggley and hard. Could use some updating for sure.

This hotel is aging and in need of updating but it was pretty clean and worked fine for us. The location is very nice. It's attached to a restaurant and within walking distance to the gas station/convenience store. Pool and hot tub area were nice. We had a leaky sink which was fixed immediately.

The pool was too dirty to swim in. Our original room had a broken noisy ac. Did get a new room, but not much better
