We were two adults moving from the east coast to the west coast in a Chevy Silverado and hitched enclosed moving trailer. We were able to park across the street taking up two street parking spaces. Our stay at the Sunshine Inn was only a few days before the 75th Sturgis Bike Motorcycle Rally. We were fortunate to get one... More

I was on a road trip by myself through nine states. Booked this hotel 10 hours before my arrival. Never been happier with my decision! It was a week before Sturgis so they were a lot of bikes. I never felt safer! The owner was fabulous. It isn't the newest place but it was very clean & comfortable. The whole... More

John the owner doesn't know a stranger. We have stayed at this motel several times, while not the newest and fanciest it is by far the friendliest. I've see John go cover-up motorcycle when a storm approach's an go around the parking lot to make sure everyone's car window's are up. Fresh coffee donuts and a smile for breakfast and... More

Very reasonable, clean, and staff was very accommodating. The owner was especially personable and considerate of our needs and was helpful in recommendations about the area. We had a peaceful and restful night and appreciated the cleanliness and pleasant appointments. We visited this Inn when we took a cross country road trip from Boston and would visit it again.

Clean, spartan accommodations. Friendly owner! The best value for a bed on my 13 day road trip. Will stay here again. If you are looking for extra amenities this place isn't for you. If you want a super clean, friendly, very reasonable bed for the night...this is your place. This place defines a great budget motel.

My wife and I decided to stay overnight in Wall rather than drive all the way to the Black Hills from Minneapolis.

My written review is way more important than simple clicking of the circles in various categories. Rather than "circles," I would prefer to merely say "negative" or "positive" as my overall reaction to the hotel/motel. Then, the written review would fill in what needs to be known. This is a positive review. My wife says "yes" that she would stay... More

We took a 3 week driving tour of the West and national parks. I wish they had a Sunshine Inn in every town. That said, this place is not for everyone since it's not hip or updated. It's just cheap, clean, and the bed was the most comfortable of the trip. We saved $100 here over what we had to... More

This property is an old strip motel that has been nicely maintained. There are 2 stories and no elevator, and the location is within easy walking distance to restaurants and to Wall Drug and other shops. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. Because it's an older property, there are not enough outlets for today's gadgets, but a strip outlet... More
