“Great place to stay on the rez!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

After having passed this motel many times, I finally booked a stay here over the 4th of July weekend. This is a clean, quiet and friendly place. In fact, I cannot say enough good about the staff--they were friendly, very helpful and so pleasant! The rooms are clean & comfortable, the area beautiful and centrally located and, of course, the best thing is the quiet--all you hear are the wind and the birds (paradise!). Don't miss the great pancakes at breakfast; food was good and very reasonable, and the restaurant has huge windows and an outside patio with seating for the views. I will definitely stay here again and recommend this place to many others. The only thing I wished for & didn't get was that it was a cloudy night and I could not see all the brilliant stars (they come down to the ground & there are millions in this area--a welcome change from the big city), which certainly had nothing to do with the motel! Thank you for a great stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2007

I stayed at the Lakota Prairie Ranch Resort at the recommendation of a Lakota colleague on the Pine Ridge reservation. It's a relatively new property. My room was clean, spacious and had a comfortable queen bed, and included a fridge and microwave. The walls were a bit thin, the usual motel scene where you hear your neighbor's TV, but in my case they were considerate and turned it off relatively early. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There's a deposit for the key and for an ethernet cable (the wireless was a bit weak outside the lobby/restaurant area) that was promptly refunded. I was not able to successfully connect to the internet despite having a decent signal, they mentioned recent connectivity issues.

The lobby also has a nice gift shop/studio area and a restaurant. The meals were fairly priced, especially breakfast, and were of a respectable diner quality. There were no vegetarian options on the dinner menu, but they did serve breakfast at any time which was nice.

The motel is convenient to several Pine Ridge locations, and would be a good stop on the way to or from Badlands National Park. I found it a good value, better than average accomodations for a motel, and would stay again on my next trip.

  • Liked — Convenient for Pine Ridge business, friendly staff
  • Disliked — internet wasn't working
