We initially liked the room and location, but around 1am the sink and tub started overflowing with raw sewage! Our toiletries were ruined. The manager moved us one room down and discounted the room 20%, but we would have rather stayed elsewhere.

We had a wonderful time staying here! Along with standard hotel rooms, this hotel has three cabins available. What fun! Our 2 room cabin had a double bed, futon, and bunk beds. The cabin was clean and had its own picnic table, fridge, microwave, ceiling fan, A/C, and bathroom with shower (nice showerhead!) The breakfast was wonderful. Three cereals, waffle... More

The cabins are family friendly. Bunk beds in the main room are great for kids. There is also a futon/couch in the main room along with a table and kitchen area (sink, frig, microwave). The grown ups get their own room with a door. Bathroom is small because the sink is in the bedroom worked great for us because one... More

Reserved two rooms at this hotel. The rooms were affordable and both were neat, clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and immediately placed a wash bucket and towels outside our rooms to clean our motorcycles. The breakfast room was small but neat and the breakfast was standard free breakfast of waffles, bagels, fruit etc.

This was such a cute stop on our way through South Dakota.We stayed just one night, but we had 5 people so I chose a cabin when booking. It was the right choice, but I would say the bunk beds are for kids only... not well padded. The owner was so kind and helpful, a small town feel. The town... More

We spent six nights here and they were the most accommodating place we have ever stayed at. The room was clean, the staff very helpful, and the location was great. I would stay here again. The balcony was so enjoyable to be out on in the evening, enjoyed watching what was going on and hearing the river run by.

I had previously wrote a review for this motel and was having trouble getting my computer to fill in the circles. I accidentally gave it the wrong rating. This is the best, friendliness, clean and awesome motel out of our entire trip this summer. We have been gone 21 days and because of the way we were treated here by... More

I always stay at this Hotel when we come to Hot Springs (to visit relatives) The Hotel is located right in the downtown area. The beautiful architecture takes you back about 100 years! Walking distance to a beautiful riverfront walkway that takes you along one of the many hot springs. So conveniently located to visit the area Monuments and tourist... More

Stayed here after car trouble delayed a trip. This is a friendly budget motel; no frills just a clean room and nice owners. We arriver late and the owner called across the street to make sure the bar and grill would stay open to serve us--the joys of small towns! Good location by a stream.

This America's Best Inn is in a fine location for the Caves and the Mammoth site. The motel is clean, everything works, and breakfast is simple and nutritious. The Owner, Ahmedur, is very helpful and courteous, and seems genuinely concerned about his guests. I would stay here again on my way through Highway 385, and would recommend it to friends.
