“Well-maintained, family-owned motel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Motel is run by Dad, son and grandson that are very nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean and well maintained. We had corner family suite (two twins and two queens, small dining area and bath) for $75 that included breakfast in newly remodeling breakfast area that is absolutely spotless. Small in-ground pool. Walking distance to many good restaurants in downtown Rapid City and a great little dairy freeze with delicious soft serve. Exceptional value!

Best price in Rapid City, that I found. Smallish pool, but the kids loved it.

Breakfast was A+, choose from fruits, cereal, muffins, english muffins; the breakfast was better than some higher priced hotels!

Older gentleman at the desk was the owner and he was funny, personable, and friendly. Reminded me of my grandpa. :-)

Located just a few blocks from the main street; rooms were comfortable and clean. Had nice size FLAT SCREEN tv, wifi, cable, frig, AND microwave!

Definately worth the price.

We were panicing trying to find a motel in Rapid City by internet. Availablity and prices were shocking - must be their tourist season. We stumbled upon this listing at a price way below the others, booked it for two nights, and crossed our fingers. When we arrived, were we pleasantly surprized! It's located right downtown within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the city park with its paved bike/jogging trail. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and while our room had just one queen bed it was very clean and well equipped with flat screen tv, microwave, and refrigerator. The complimentary breakfast was the standard motel fare but adequate. I definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: We asked for a first floor room so we could park our car in front for easy unloading. The rooms hav...

Have stayed at this small motel a number of times in the past and every time we stay there is gets a little less satisfactory. The price is great but the condition of the rooms are going downhill, the office is open on a rather limited schedule and there in no one on the premises overnight to get assistance from. When you try to call the desk you get an automated system that just keeps looping you round and round with never an option to leave a message or in our specific instance that the office closes at 8 p.m. and no one answers the phone after that time. We arrived close to midnight only to find that our reservation had not been registered and there was no key or message was left for us. Had to go find another place to stay -- which is what we will be doing from now on when visiting Rapid City.

My wife and I and/or friends have stayed here 3-4 times in the past 6-7 years. We usually stay 3-4 night each time. Most often we are on the bike(s). This is a great base camp for heading anywhere in the Black Hills. We are gone riding all day and just spend the night here. It gets hot in the Hills and it's great to get in late and take a quick jump in the pool. This year we are taking the grandkids. I know they will love the pool. Jerry is the greatest. We park the bike(s) under the canopy which is great in bad weather and for security purposes. Two years ago we got in late and they were already booked full. Jerry called another motel close by and saved us a room. And that's not all... The price is the best in the Hills!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2011

We got in super late (1 AM-ish) and found that the owner had left a note on the door that our room key was under the door. The motel was totally booked, which seemed like a good sign, but the room was a bit dated. We had free parking, a micro and fridge, and were within walking distance to restaurants downtown, which were all great values for the super low rate we paid for the room. The cons were that the room was a bit dirty (stray hairs, smoky smell, etc.) and we had a tough time getting the door open and closed (and never really were sure if it locked).
