I have stayed here before. Very friendly owner and staff. Close to downtown and newly painted this year. Very clean, even have a roll and juice and coffee for you in the morning. No complaints, I will stay here again if I am in the Wall area

Ok, so I can't say enough about this hotel. If you're new to the Wall area, be prepared for the ultimate in small town amenities, very few dining options, and a feel of 'Whoa, where have I ended up?' Then pull a total diamond out of the rough when you get to Sunshine Inn. Friendly staff greeted us with smiles... More

This was a perfect stop for one night in Wall. We had found this hotel from recommendations on Tripadvisor and as usual we weren't disappointed. From the very start communicating via email to make our booking right through to our arrival the experience was positive. It's always difficult being in another country and making reservations however the process was easy... More

If you are looking to stay in Wall, SD. You have to stay at the Sunshine Inn! The Sunshine is an old style roadside Inn, that fits with the atmosphere of the Wall Drug area. The Inn keeper was very friendly and allowed me to inspect our rooms before checking in. I've stayed in roadside motels before and no matter... More

Great little Motel. Clean and had everything you need. Stayed a couple nights in September. Owners were more than accommodating. Short walk to Wall Drug. Beats the big chain hotels anytime. Price was awesome! Short drive to the badlands.

We do indeed believe that we are the "franchise busters" when it comes to offering the traveling public great rooms at competitive prices--and thank you so much for calling attention to it with your observation that we "beat the chain hotels anytime." We're proud of our... More

My husband and I stayed here in September on a week night. The Hotel room was clean, bed was comfortable, and shower was hot. For $55 we were impressed. I would stay here again. Owner was very personable as well. If you are passing through Wall check out the Sunshine Inn.

Our room was very clean and comfortable. Good pressure and nice hot water in the bathroom. Quiet. Bed was harder than I am use to, but slept well. Just a cross walk away from the Wall Drug shopping area. Good value. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the kind remarks and succinct summary of your stay at the Sunshine Inn. Our beds are medium-firm, though there is a bit of variation among them. Customers are always welcome to test the beds in their rooms prior to check-in. If available, more than one room can be checked out this way. I also appreciate you noticing our... More

We stayed at the Sunshine Inn on our trip to South Dakota. Very short drive to Badlands National Park and walking distance to Wall Drug and Buffalo Gap Grasslands Visitor Center make this property a great choice for those visiting these places. Room was clean and bed comfortable. John is a gracious innkeeper and very helpful to his guests.

Thanks for the business and the great review. I appreciate that you stress our location, just 10 minutes from Badlands National Park and a 1-block walk to Wall Drug Store. I appreciate the kind personal remarks and couldn't be happier with your conclusion that we're a "great choice." Hope to see you again sometime! Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn) More

Just happened to stop in while checking out Wall Drugs, so glad I did. Very reasonably priced, perfectly clean room, small but just right. John, the owner is the most pleasant and helpful host of my trip by far. If I'm in the area it will be my first choice. Thanks

Thanks for stopping by and checking us out. We see lots of drop-ins from down the street at Wall Drug Store and generally get their business once they look at a room and visit for a bit. Our handy location to all the Main Street activities makes us a popular spot, and we're delighted that so many of our customers... More
