I couldn't find reviews on this motel prior to our vacation, so I took a chance.
We had 4 families-- 3 in 2 room "family suites", 1 in a room with 2 doubles.
This motel is older, and they have been trying to sell it for about a year. Thus, they have not updated it , which is what makes it "ok", but there were things that needed updating/repair.
One of the family rooms had a newer-looking bathroom, but their air conditioner did not work, so they were very hot. The windows open to a bunch of trees and brush, so not much air comes in.
The other 2 family rooms were adequate for what we paid in comparison to the other hotels in Spearfish, and especially for the size of our family (7). We had a 2 room suite-- one with 2 double beds, and one with 1 double bed. There was only one bathroom, however. The room was clean but felt "dingy" because of the really old window air conditioners, heaters, and refrigerators (but the refrigerators were full sized, which was a plus!),old windows, and older furniture. It was not so bad that we wouldn't stay, but it definitely needed updating.
Some of the rooms had paneling, which made them seem really dark, but others had white textured walls.
There was free wifi, and the pool looked newer and clean, albeit small. There was continental breakfast of cereal (malt -0-meal brand raisin bran, honey nut o's, etc.), milk, sunny delight, coffee, toast, peanutbutter and jelly.
The gal at the front desk when we checked in was very helpful in answering questions about attractions and restaurants.
Overall, if you just need a place overnight and are not expecting new and sparkling, you'll find it adequate. If you don't like "rustic" and old appliances, you'd be happier elsewhere.
