“Great Stay - Pet Friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were traveling with our dog so our options were limited. Booking a room at the Motel 6 in Hot Springs was a last minute decision that worked out awesomely. Tammy was super helpful over the phone and with check-in. And with suggestions for breakfast the next day. Pets are no extra charge which is rare. The price for the room was incredibly cheap as well.

Location is great, safe, and close to the small city of Hot Springs and a great jumping off point for the rest of the Rushmore area.

Accommodations are basic but comfortable and clean. Wifi worked great. Free coffee in the morning but no breakfast. Biggest drawback is that walls are a little thin so you may hear a lot.

Overall though we (along with our pup) were very happy!

Thank you for your positive feedback. Pets are always welcome at Motel 6 with no charge. Motel 6 chain does not provide breakfast. That allows for us to continue to be the lowest price of any national chain. We hope your travels bring you back this way again in the future.

You get what you pay for I guess. The place is only 5 yrs old so it's clean and new. The rooms are small but tidy and clean. They don't provide the little things such as shampoo; no coffee maker in the room ( there is one in the lobby). The pool is small but refreshing! For a one night stay it was just fine. No breakfast at all..... A vending machine that's all.

Thank you for your feedback. Motel 6 chain prides itself on being the lowest price of any national chain. That is accomplished by not putting amenities in the room. We do, however, want to accommodate our guests as much as possible; therefore, subject to availability, we have items like shampoo, kleenex, hair dryers, irons/board, clock radios, cribs available at the front desk at no charge. We also offer certain amenities for minimal charge at the front desk - toothbrush, tooth paste, razor, shaving cream, lotion. Please ask the front desk attendant for these items. We have fridges/micros in about half of our rooms. Please ask at check in if you need these items. The microwave in the lobby is also available to any of our guests at any time. Also, should the urge hit, any of our staff is very willing to make coffee any hour of the day. Please ask. Should you need anything at our motel, please inquire at the front desk. We will do what we can to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable.

This hotel is nothing fancy, but this it's a clean, convenient property, with super friendly staff who are professional, helpful and ensure you receive dependable service. We had a very good experience here.

For a Motel 6 this is a real deal. Much better than staying in one of the expensive places in the Rapid City area. The hotel is new. The rooms have everything one needs for 2 people. The staff was helpful and gave us a good recommendation on a restaurant for dinner. The bed was just OK.

Clean rooms and quiet. The staff are the most helpful of any that I've encountered in my travels. I had troubles with the tires on my motorcycle and with the cheap tracphone that couldn't get any signals. The staff went out of there way to get me the info that I needed to correct my situation. That gal Carrie went way over and above anything that I could ever have dreamed of. She left me with a feeling that I wasn't stranded just a little detoured. She is such an asset to the motel and to herself,she reallymade me feel like an old friend and not just another customer.If and when I get back to that area I will stay there again.

The only thing missing was a complimentary breakfast. Otherwise, it was clean, quiet and convenient for local dining. Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen are very close, and other dining opportunities are further North in the city proper. It was a restful stop over on our way to Wind Cave and Mt Rushmore.

I am so happy with this place it's ridiculous. I was prepared to underwhelmed with the most cost effective hotel/motel on our trip. Instead, I feel other places will pale in comparison. The staff, rooms, and even other guests are just great. The room that we had reserved ended up not being available at check-in but they made up for it by offering adjoining rooms (one being accessible like we reserved) so we had enough beds. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to everyone. It is on the edge of town but after driving 900 miles a few more to go places is no biggie.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Just as a reminder, all of our "accessible" rooms have only one queen bed in them. We were, however, more than happy to also give you the adjoining room so that you had the space you needed. We hope to see you again in your travels!
