We were traveling between the Black Hills Area and North Dakota and needed a place to stay for a day to "get civilized" after camping for 6 nights. Cindy and her husband welcomed us and our small dog to the Lazy "U" where we took showers in a small but clean bathroom, did laundry, stored our food in a mini-fridge and recovered from our journeys so far. The motel is situated on not on a particularly scenic spot in Rapid City, but it did the trick - lots of restaurants, a Starbucks and a Safeway nearby. The rate was quite reasonable, the owners and staff super friendly, and we got a great night's sleep. So think about supporting small independent motels when you travel. Thanks Lazy "U."
