First, I'm rating this based on our expectations and use. We were driving to Mount Rushmore/Rapid City and decided to stop for the night here. Given where we were, we didn't set our expectations very high. I'm a pretty light sleeper and was relieved that it was quiet. The front desk staff was friendly both at late night check in... More

I am pretty picky about clean hotels, but this one passed for me. It was a spur of the moment weekend getaway and we didn't want to spend a ton on a hotel. Th rate for Friday night was reasonable an the room was clean with no bugs! Beds and pillows were comfortable. Th only issue was the shower head... More

This motel probably was built in the late 50's. The room was comfortable and the sheets and towels were clean. However. There could be better attention by the owners and staff to this property. Better cleaning in the out of the way places like corners of the carpets need better vacuuming. The sinks and fixtures were old and showed ware.... More

Fountain Inn looks like it came out of a time warp from the 60s. If you want a poor nights sleep stay here, beds and linens must be as old as the inn itself and there is very little upkeep in the rooms. This establishment definitely shows no pride in ownership.

We checked in after 10 hours on the road and this hotel was close to the interstate. I am glad my husband was with me because I was a bit concerned about the clientele. The hotel was very old and reminded me of the 60's Motel 6. If we weren't so tired, I probably would have looked for some place... More

We made reservations ahead of time and when we checked in at 7pm our room was still dirty from the previous customers. We were told to wait 10min while they put clean sheets on ONE of the TWO beds. The bathroom and entire room was left dirty from the people before us. Terrible service. Nasty rooms. Checked out early and... More

If going to or coming from crazy horse then new castle is the ideal location to stay. And here the best motel i could find was fountain inn. Nice motel with superb restaurant. I was not expecting such a fine dining experience in a small place like new castle.

Have been staying at the Fountain Inn for 10 years. Each year I reserve a lower level room for the next year, and every year THEY SCREW IT UP!!! Since ownership changed they have ran this place in the ground, but one is limited on places to stay in Newcastle. Let the traveler beware.

Actually after going through reviews I had not preferred to stay here but stayed at another motel. But when I arrived at this place for dinner (up stair there is a good restaurant), I found the place very nice. So next day I moved here. The best service and room I got here. I think reviews are too old and... More
