We spent Saturday night, July 6, 2013 at the Ace Motel in Belle Fourche on our way to Montana. The rates were great, the rooms were clean, comfortable and the owner, Vicki, was very accommodating. She gave us rags for cleaning our motorcycles and made sure we were pleased with our room. She invited us to sit in the grassy sitting area near the office and had comfy chairs for our convenience. On Sunday morning when I was packing my motorcycle for the next leg of our trip, I accidently tripped and fell on the blacktop and lacerated my arm which required stitches. Because there wasn't a clinic or hospital in Belle Fourche, Vicki offered my husband her personal van to take me to the ER in Spearfish. Talk about hospitality and trust from a small business owner! I ended up with about 15 stitches in my arm but thanks to Vicki, I didn't have to ride behind my husband on his bike to Spearfish for medical care. I would highly recommend this great little gem of a motel for travelers. It was quiet and easy to find in Belle Fourche and it had a great view of the downtown. If I ever travel through western South Dakota again, I would definitely stay at the Ace Motel again!
