My husband and I just love the Sunshine Inn. We booked 3 nights here during our SD vacation. John, the owner, really goes above and beyond to give you the best deal on your stay. We were surprised with a room upgrade when we checked in. The Sunshine is clean, comfy, and located within walking distance of all the town's... More

We stayed at the Sunshine Inn as a jumping off point for a hiking trip to the Badlands on 08/26/14. This little motel was very clean, quiet, and affordable (which is all we need when we're passing through). The motel is a little "bare bones," but perfectly acceptable for our needs. It's a privately owned motel and the owner is... More

Thanks so much for staying at the Sunshine Inn and calling attention to the high level of service we provide for those who want the best in cleanliness, quietness and affordability. We think we provide all the basic services that most travelers want and can do so at prices that are as much as $60-$70 lower than our franchised competitors... More

Well - we were on our way to a hotel in the area that I had booked, but I looked on the reviews for some reason - and thought No Way am I staying at that hotel. So we saw this one - and they had rooms! I was really excited that it was within walking distance to everything. The... More

Fell into this little family-owned hotel by accident, but what a wonderful surprise. The owners are both very accommodating and sweet. We stayed here heading to the Black Hills and, then again, on the way back to Sioux Falls. Both times the rooms were clean and inviting. The location is great (right in between Wall Drug and the National Grasslands... More

What a happy accident, indeed, to have you here as our guest! That you found our rooms to be "clean and inviting" is gratifying enough--that you found us to be "accommodating and sweet" is an accolade that makes all of us here at the Sunshine Inn swell with pride. Thanks also for mentioning our great location, just a block away... More

Was so impressed with John (owner) who greeted me by name, and remembered my name throughout my stay. He offered me and my travelling canine companion a great room which was spotless. Since my wifi wasn't working, he even offered his back room to use the connection there. It wasn't a big deal, but John felt bad for something out... More

Great review. Thanks. I particularly appreciate your kind remarks about me, and must add that it's easy for me to accommodate specific needs when I have a the back-up of the greatest staff ever.

Stayed here prior to rally week. This is an older hotel but I have never stayed in a cleaner one. Everything was is good condition except perhaps the walkway on the 2nd floor but it wasn't an issue. The mattress and pillows were very comfortable. Great location. The owners are very nice and so were all the guests. Really good... More

Thanks for staying at the Sunshine Inn and providing TripAdvisor readers with such a nice re-cap of your experience here. "Clean" and "good condition" are some of our favorite words, which are commonly used by our customers here. They represent a standard that is our first priority. Apologies for the upstairs walkway, which we sweep and vacuum twice daily due... More

This small hotel was more than adequate for a one or two night stay! Was just as described, and had no problems. In fact the free internet access worked better here than in some larger places we stayed at. It is certainly dated, but as I said - more than adequate for a stopover place to refresh for a night....

Thank you for staying at the Sunshine Inn and sharing your experiences here. We think we give great value here regardless of length of stay. In fact, it's a common practice for many of our customers to extend their stays for several days--sometimes a week or more--because our value and location fit their budgets and itineraries to a "T." So... More

Very clean, affordable. John, the owner, is approachable and kind. John helped me to plan out driving routes and gave us good recommendations for the area, like where to eat breakfast, where to find agates. His coffee is good. Drank OJ, then ate a full breakfast elsewhere. He keeps an eye on the place so I felt that my mother,... More

You couldn't ask for a better owner. John was very kind and helpful making sure he knew who you were and that you were comfortable. He gave good advice on where to eat and about the town. The rooms were very clean, nice towels and all the basic amenities. Our bed was a little hard and the room was small... More
