I stayed at this hotel for one night, on the night of the Mount Rushmore fireworks. The hotel is nearly a mile away from the town, so if you plan to walk up the hill to watch the fireworks, it's better to drive to town and try to park a bit closer -- you'll save at least 1/2 mile each way.
The hotel room and furnishings were not as good as I would expect from an Econolodge. The room is very small and oddly configured. It's an "L" shape, and the bed is in a nook that's only about 2 feet wider than the bed, so you have to be a little creative getting into bed. The TV is on a credenza, and with the TV on the very end, it's pretty visible from the bed, but kind of off to the side.
The view from my room on the second floor at the back was actually pretty nice -- grassy back yard, with a couple of houses far enough behind that you don't feel like they can see into your room.
The mattress seemed very old and way too soft. The breakfast was o.k., though the "orange juice" was undrinkable, as it was so diluted.
At $169, this was one of the less expensive hotels in town for the fireworks night, but it definitely isn't worth that kind of price.
