We have stayed here several times because this inn has everything we need for a comfortable stay at an extremely good price. I love that it is on the river where you may follow a walking path for some morning exercise. You can also walk to restaurants, shops and a grocery store. The staff is very friendly and the service... More

The General Manager couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. He made sure that I knew about surrounding points of interest that I might otherwise have missed. Breakfast was held open late to accommodate my schedule and they kept checking to ensure I had everything I needed. Clean rooms, good housekeeping, very friendly staff, very reasonably priced, I ended up... More

The hotel is centrally located by the Fall River, but there is not much to be seen there - the town center looks as if it still lives around the turn of the 20th century. The hotel is a typical motel with large rooms and two queen beds on two floors. The service and attention of the manager was exemplary... More

I rented one of the cabins at Americas Best Inn by the River, Hot Springs, SD, the week of the Sturgis Rally, 2015. The town is located at the South entrance of Custer/ Mt. Rushmore. A picturesque place. Regarding the cabin: The bed(s) were very uncomfortable. I slept the first night in the bed; the remaining nights I slept on... More

The town is a little run down and we were shocked at the poor choice of restaurants to eat in the evening. Riverwalk was overgrown and spoilt by concrete walls. The manager at the hotel was very obliging, but the room was spoilt for us by an awful smell. To be fair the manager did warn us that they had... More

Came to Hot Springs for a single overnight between camping trips. Very clean room and friendly service. Nice location by river and walking path. Easy walk to local restaurants. Kids had some cereal for breakfast, but we didn't stay long-there is selection of bread, bagels, waffles, cereal and hard boiled eggs. We would definitely stay here again.

The town was not that impressive to me, but the front desk help was very nice and courteous. The room was clean and we were able to get a room on the first floor. A little noisy but by the time we were ready to sleep it seemed much quieter. The hotel itself was OK, but I am not certain... More

My family stayed two nights. Ahmed at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. The furniture was outdated, but we didn't mind since it was clean and well kept. The room had adequate lighting, and was nice and bright with the curtains open. The air conditioner was awesome, and the hairdryers... More

Hot Springs is a beautiful little town. The hotel is in the center of town. There are hiking trails nearby next to a waterfall. The front desk was very helpful. The room was nice and the breakfast was average. There is so much to see in this area. We would stay at this hotel again.
