“Cutest Cowboy Motel in South Dakota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

It's heart warming to stay in a real motel run by a cute couple, Rob and Patti. Real silky sheets, real towels, candy in the room, toothpaste packets if you forgot, a burro/mule to visit, a sweet little old dachshund at the front desk... what more could you ask for? The rooms were super clean!!! I didn't want to leave. Great price too.

Room Tip: Go to the Sunset!

Thank you for your review! We don't think of our motel as being a motel, it is part of our home and we want our guests to feel right at home,

This older motel is a great place to stay because of the following reasons: owners are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the price is reasonable. Not fancy, but quiet and feeling of home.

Your hosts Patty and Rob are the owners and take great pride in their motel. Sparkling clean, well decorated with extra nice little touches, that provide a homey feeling. A place to sit outside and enjoy the evening or converse. Motif is true western. This is a non-pet friendly establishment which is greatly appreciated. We stayed two days and enjoyed every moment and if in the area would stay no where else. Price is very reasonable and when you have been traveling for several weeks it is a comfortable and welcoming place for your visit in that area of South Dakota. An easy drive to Sturgis, Deadwood, Devil's Tower, etc. This place is a part of the true experience when traveling the highways of America. It will linger for a long time in our memories as a place we loved.Oh and we shared our love of orange Camaros with the owners.

My family and I stayed at the Sunset Motel in Belle Fourche SD for three days in June and it was a very pleasant stay. The rooms were exceptionally clean and it was very homey. If you are looking for fancy this is not for you, but if you are looking for a very clean reasonably priced motel, you can't go wrong with the Sunset. The motel is close to the road so you do get some road noise, but that is the case in all motels when they are right off the road. The rooms are cosy and you are close to Spearfish Canyon and Deadwood. Patty has donkeys and they are very friendly and cute. I will definitely be reserving rooms again for my next trip out to the Dakotas.

Room Tip: They have theme rooms, so ask if you have a preference. We had both a harley room and cowboy room.

This motel is the cleanest motel I've ever been in. It is so homey and decorated so cute. The price is fantastic and the owners are wonderful!! I was impressed with the colored towels that made me feel like I was at home instead of traveling. I highly recommend it!

What a great find this was! Rob and Patty have done a first rate job remodeling this old motel. The rooms are EXTREMELY clean and really don't look like "motel" rooms. Their furnishings are so well done, especially for a little motel in the West. We had a room with a cattleman's theme, which was perfect for us since we are cattle ranchers. If you're looking for an accommodation with a spa, gym, and pool, go to one of the chains (which is where I have had bedbugs TWICE!). But if you want a clean, comfortable, homey room to stay in for a VERY reasonable price, this is it. You can always go down the street for breakfast at any of several eateries. I will always stay here when I make my twice yearly trips to Belle Fourche.
