“Problems”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

Smoke free room smelled of smoke. Problems with card keys for doors(3 new ones needed first afternoon) Had same problems with keys and smoke smell on our last visit but was told that they had recently opened from previous entity and were renovating, Carpeting looked nice & new. .Also found ants on table and night stand. There was also a problem with the toilet stool. Numerous flushing needed to flush a small piece of toilet paper.. Good breakfast...Friendly personnel. Close to everything.

We really appreciate your comments about your stay. Our Hotel became a smoke-free property about 3 years ago, and unfortunately even after 3 years of cleaning carpets, washing walls, etc. the smoke smell sometimes reappears. Thankfully, we only had to convert a few rooms over to non-smoking! We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused. As new owners, we have been making many improvements each year, so we hope you enjoy them. (Yes, the carpetting is new!) Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you soon.

We had a two queen suite because we are three adults and need the extra room. This was just what we needed. The hotel was clean and everything was in working order. Check in was quick and the front desk was very friendly and cheerful. Breakfast was adequate but a bit disorganised. Only suggestion I would make is that the TV needs to be down the end where the seating is not between the beds. Beds were comfortable and the a/c was quiet.

This is a clean, well-maintained hotel and a great stop on the way to/from the Black Hills. We were very impressed with the front desk staff, the cleanliness of the room, the breakfast and the upkeep of the property in general. Sometimes the hotels right off the interstate become "shop worn" in a hurry, but this place (which is six years old) is in really great shape. There are restaurants and gas stations nearby (we like eating at Al's Oasis). Overall, great for a one-night stay on the way to our destination. The ONLY negative I could find about this place was their coffee, which was really weak, but other than that, a great find at the price ($62 w/senior discount).

I travel extensively throughout the US and abroad. In 2009, I spent over 160 nights in hotels. I can honestly say this is the best Howard Johnson I have ever visited. The front desk people were thorough, very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very acceptable and clean. The overall atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing. I would have no reservation recommending this hotel to anyone. When I checked out, I left my cell phone charger in the room. The hotel called my business meeting and left a message for me that I had left it. The staff had it at the front desk waiting for me when I came back to the hotel. That was a first for me. I would gladly stay here anytime I am in the area.

Thank you for your comments. It is always my hope that if I left something at a hotel. The hotel would do the same thing for me. We look forward to your return. Happy New Year and safe travels.
