This is a great small motel if you don't want to spend a lot of money. It is a block from Wall drug. John is very friendly and willing to make sure you have everything you need. One of the best things is he has a freezer full of ice and will fill your coolers free of charge.

I made reservations for the Sunshine Inn months before coming here in July 2014. Each time I had a question, John answered me promptly. I got to know a little about John and when I finally stayed at the Sunshine Inn, I had the opportunity to talk to him for more than a few minutes. He is committed to running... More

First, the Sunshine Inn is a budget hotel, no frills. It was clean and comfort but very basic. The front desk person was really nice and helpful. The price did include a continental breakfast which was coffee and packaged snack cakes, so plan to go out for breakfast. The Wall Drug Cafe has a good breakfast buffet. The Inn is... More

Thanks so much for staying at the Sunshine Inn and sharing your experiences here. As your title notes, we're just the right place for "budget-oriented" (and who isn't, these days?) travelers. As I've noted in earlier replies, our customers can expect to save as much as $50 to $60 a night (based on AAA Tourbook rate comparisons) as compared to... More

Made reservations based on reviews, was not disappointed. Very clean room and John is so helpful and friendly. He keeps a freezer full of ice to fill your ice chest up. Great location to walk to Wall drug. Would stay here again. Very reasonable prices.

Thanks for making us your headquarters during your extended stay in Wall. "Clean and comfortable" are two of the most important words in the Sunshine Inn vocabulary, so you can imagine how proud we are that you took notice and mentioned it here. And thanks also for noting our friendly disposition. It comes naturally to us, especially when we know... More

This is a motel, so no frills, but it is very clean, has comfortable beds and is $65 a night. John the owner is extremely nice and knows you by name practically when you walk in the door. We wanted to see the Bad Lands before going to the cabin we rented in Rapid City. This was a perfect option... More

We stayed in June. Had the 2 Room over the Office. Not fancy, Good and Clean! John was as nice and personable as reported by other reviewers. Convenient to Wall Drug!

Thanks for staying here and for sharing your experience at the Sunshine Inn with TripAdvisor. Your forthright assessment is both welcome and encouraging.

Simple, clean, effective. Rate was $30 less than a comparable room in Rapid City. Staff very friendly and courteous. Nice smooth parking lot. Very nice sheets on the bed. Rooms aren't huge, but hey, what do you need a huge room for when you're sleeping? You want ice? You got ice. You want a cup of coffee in the morning?... More

Thanks for staying at the Sunshine Inn and for providing this gracious re-cap of your experiences here. We're glad you stressed our location. We're just a block away from the world famous Wall Drug Store and the rest of the shops, restaurants and attractions on Main Street, meaning guests can leave their cars parked in our lot and walk easily...
