“Good Budget Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stayed there last year for two nights while visiting Mount Rushmore and on my way to Yosemite. Clean and everything worked. Staff friendly and cooperative. No shampoo in the room, but available upon request at the desk. Good value with friendly staff. Very close to Mammoth Site.

After traveling from Florida to South Dakota with my family and our dog, I had more than enough of being turned away from various hotels because they don't except dogs or that they will except a dog for a $40 dollar extra charge and being treated like dirt in the process. Upon reaching Hot Springs late one night, I entered the lobby of Motel 6, expecting a hassle from the girl at the desk. I asked if they accepted dogs and she responded,"Sure". I then asked,"How much is the charge?" She responded,"There is no charge." And in a very friendly way, said."We love dogs here!" I'll never forget how helpful and super friendly the staff was during our stay and how they helped out during a medical emergency that we had while there! It was almost like staying with family, Very representitive of of Hot Springs its'self! I cannot say enough about Motel 6 and Hot Springs.

Another motel was full, so my wife and I went here and booked a room that evening. Although it did not have a breakfast, the rate is excellent- super value. They have coffee in the loby. It has a small pool. Room was clean. The motel appears to be newer. The staff was very friendly.

Picked this because it was top rated motel in Hot Springs. If this is the best Hot Springs has to offer they are lacking in hotels, maybe I should open one myself. Room was clean,front desk was friendly and polite. Bed was not comfortable, no radio, no clock, just a small analog tv. o.k. for a discount chain but when we go back to Hot Springs we won't be staying at motel 6

Motel 6 was sold to us as a budget chain that is cheap and available almost anywhere. We had stayed in a rather run-down one in Denver before so our hopes weren't high, but this one is really nice! It's either brand new or recently refurbished, is easy to find, well-appointed, had a fridge in the room and an indoor pool. The rooms are large and we heard no night time disturbance at all.

My husband and I were in the Black Hills for 8 days for my grandmother's memorial service and some added sightseeing. I adjusted our reservation about 5 times because we had a ton of schedule changes at the last minute. The staff at the 6 was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had been having a week where we felt like no one in the service industry would ever be kind again, and then...boom! we landed in Hot Springs and did not want to leave. Clean, comfy room - quiet too! Even if you want to travel all over the Hills, it is worth it to stay at the Motel 6 in Hot Springs, even if there is an extra drive.

I stayed here for one night of a 25 night US & Canada road trip spanning July & August. The hotel is relatively new and although there's no frills the place is quiet, clean and the staff are friendly & helpful. I stayed here because the decent Rapid City hotels were full/expensive because of the Sturgis biker rally, and am glad that I did. It's still conveniently placed for visiting Badlands NP & Mt Rushmore.

Breakfast isn't provided, but the Fall River Bakery in town does great coffee, muffins and doughnuts for a very reasonable price.

There's also a small supermarket and a gas station a few minutes walk away if you want to stock up on a few bits & bobs or buy a snack.

Would I stay here again if I was in the area? Yes.
