I was driving through mt.rushmore and due to July 4 week the mountain's booking is full. Since I need to head to the west. I drove extra 2hrs to Gillette. It is a nice town. Many hotels but the price of Howard Johnson is below average. It is quite clean and staffs are very friendly. Breakfast serves as early as... More

This HoJo's is in the middle of Motel row in Gillette. Rooms were of the usual standard of what you would expect. What gave this the extra star was that even though the motel was across the street from an active rail yard (as are the rest of the motels,) I never heard a train pass by. Ample parking and... More

The worst stay I've had in 20 plus years. Old and dated doesn't have to mean Disgustingly Dirty and Unsafe! I took pictures to prove this statement. Too long a list to type here, but Blood on towels, stained sheets, unusable bathroom door(wrong door for jam didn't move), Etc....

We had no complaints. The people were very helpful and responsive. The outside door didn't work well but we were able to use the inside hall with no problem. Dated but comfortable and clean.

Stayed for a few weeks in May/June. It's a dated hotel, but the staff is friendly and helpful. Beds are okay, a little soft for my taste. Bathroom is small, but functional. Room was cleaned daily, towels replenished, bed made and carpet vacuumed. Some stains on the recliner, and things are old enough I wouldn't barefoot around. Breakfast was sparse,... More

We stayed there for graduation on May 24,25th. Rooms were ok, can tell they are dated, carpets are worn and should be replaced. The biggest problem, was we had non-smoking rooms, but really smelled of cigarettes. My wife woke up both days with scratchy throat
