“Great Place To Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Enjoyed our stay at the Coachlight Motel. It is a great alternative to the higher priced chain locations. The owners really care about their guest and comfort. The room was very clean and well appointed. The shower has plenty of hot water, good water pressure, and a curtain that bows out so there is no clammy clinging while you shower. The bed was very comfortable. We had a great night's sleep. Nice to have a fridge in the room. The internet had a very good connection. Liked the parking right outside our door. We will make it a point to stop here again.

Very good value. Clean spacious room, good bed, perfect heating. everything very clean. An reasonably priced. Most of these hotel chain should send some staff there to learn how a motel should be run.

I give this property 4 stars based on the value of this room. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. I enjoy being able to back up my truck right at my room door, and being able to bring my dog in the room. There's a gas station next door if you need to fill up or get any snacks. I will be coming back to this place any time I'm in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on east side are farther away from the gas station.

Stopped here on the way out west for a quick sleep, after reading the positive tripadvisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Paid under $60 for a good clean room. Friendly and professional at front desk. A couple minutes off I-90.

We stayed at the Coachlight Motel for one night on our way home from the Badlands. We just wanted something clean, with good A/C and a TV with cable so we could watch the Olympics! We also did not want to pay a lot of money. We looked for a hotel in the Sioux Falls area but either the TripAdvisor reviews were terrible or it was full! We decided to look in Mitchell instead. The Coachlight is near I90 which was great and it only cost us $59.99 + tax for 2 adults and 2 kids. Beds were comfortable and room was a nice size. We were very happy we found the Coachlight.

Went to South Dakota last week and ran into a little trouble with the motorcycle. Got to Mitchell, SD and got a flat tire. It was TOTALLY worn to where the cords were showing. Surprised it didn't blow on the highway. Of course, it was Saturday night and no one is open on Sunday to fix it. Bryan is the nicest guy in the world. He made phone calls to people he knew that could fix it and no one had the right tire, otherwise they would have. He let us use his personal vehicle to go wherever we needed to go. Monday morning he let us check out late because the Honda guys couldn't get to the tire until around 10:30 and check out is at 11:00. He didn't charge us any extra. If you're ever in Mitchell, SD and want a reasonably priced place to stay, stay at Coachlight Motel!!!!!

Amazing at $45/night. Large, clean room with mini fridge, microwave, television, and wifi -- I had none of those at Yellowstone in a smaller room that went for $220/night! It was quieter than a hotel room that we spent $250/night. The family owns a dog that won over my grandson's heart. I expected noisy neighbors, doors banging, etc., given it's a motel. None of that. I felt safe, the staff was friendly, and it was a great way to begin a vacation after a long drive to see the Corn Palace while enroute to Badlands and Yellowstone from Wisconsin. I'd heartily recommend the little motel for any traveler. Plus, free donuts and morning coffee!
