Not a chain, locally owned and operated this motel could not be better situated. Walk to Wall Drug and Park offices. Park entrance is just down the road. Inexpensive, a real value. Owner a good source of local info. Highly recommended.

Thank you for staying at the Sunshine Inn and sharing your positive experience here. That we're locally owned and operated--I'm on the premises nearly every day during the tourist season--is one of our strengths, making our rooms competitively priced (travelers can save as much as $50/night, per the AAA book's published rates) when compared to the franchised properties in the...

The hotel is not new, but clean and comfortable. Excellent choice for walking the town. The Hotel owner was exceptional. Called everyone by name and laid towels out in the morning to wipe the motorcycle off.

Thank you for the nice remarks, both about the Sunshine Inn and me. We do our best to give motorcyclists an exceptional experience while staying with us. In addition to clean, dry cloths for morning wipedowns, we also have a hose and pressure nozzle on the premises available to those who want to give their motorcycles a complete wash--and will...

I stayed here based on the tripadvisor reviews, and I probably wouldn't have even known to look for it, since it is on the main street, by Wall Drug, rather than near the interstate exits. What a nice stay! While the furnishings and such are not new, it is probably the CLEANEST motel I have ever stayed in! I've noticed... More

Thank you for checking us out after reading about the Sunshine Inn on TripAdvisor.

The government shutdown altered our plans to spend two nights, as Badlands Park was not open for hiking. The owners let us out of the second night's reservation, no problem. Hotel very clean and just what we needed. Expected it to be smaller and more dated by some of the reviews. Bathroom had an adequately sized vanity for a woman... More

Thanks for staying at the Sunshine Inn and providing TripAdvisor.com readers with such a nice recap of your experiences here. On your first point, multiple night visitors often change plans on arrival, either extending or shortening their stays. We cheerfully accommodate those alterations and NEVER charge for a cancellation. Too many unexpected occurrences can alter plans and we see no... More

Very nice "mom and pop" hotel. Clean, comfortable. Very friendly. Great price during offseason. Would stay at this hotel again. Great location in Wall, near Wall Drug, witch is very unique. Not anything fancy but this hotel is a great value for anyone.

Thanks. Writing as the "pop" of this "mom and pop" hotel, I appreciate you staying at the Sunshine Inn and your succinct commentary about your experience here. "Clean, comfortable. Very Friendly.

Having read all the outstanding reviews for this motel, we were a bit disappointed. Definitely agree that it was clean, quiet, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, lots of channels on tv, coffee and small rolls in office in morning, a heater in the bathroom (which many more expensive places omit), and does have Wi-fi. It was lacking a clock,... More

We stopped on Sept. 2, 2013. I have travelled the road as a salesman for over 35 years and this is one of the best motel. The building and design are old, but the room is clean, the bed was firm, all the lights and TV worked, the shower will drown you in nice warm water and it is quiet... More

Thanks for staying and for the kind words. Calling the Sunshine Inn one of the best motels you've stayed in after 35 years on the road is a compliment that we accept with pride and commitment to maintaining the standards you so admire. Yes, this is an older property, built around 1980, but we scrupulously maintain it in tip top... More

We would have picked a chain hotel except that reviews here steered us to the Sunshine Inn. We were very happy with the price, the large comfortable room, its cleanliness, and the friendliness of the owner. A very happy find -- we'd stay again without hesitation.
