My family stayed here on our way back from Mt. Rushmore. It was very clean, the staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming and the breakfast food was much better than the hotel we stayed at on the way out to Mt. Rushmore. Would definitely recommend this place to others coming through the area.

Stayed here as a family group. Front desk service was good and the hotel is easily accessible but other than that, I wasn't too impressed. My room had a funny musty smell to it, noticed some mold on the air conditioning unit. Walls were thin, I could hear relatives in the room next door snoring. Family in the room next... More

Stayed last night at the hotel. Front desk check-in was fast and simple. Room as nice and spacious. However, the wireless internet in the room as almost too slow to do anything. The evening snack was small tacos, but it was just meat and cheese in a taco shell. The meat did not taste good at all. There was no... More

Thank you for your review. I appreciate your honesty about your stay with us. We host a guest reception each Tuesday and Wednesday evening which is in appreciation for your business and is complimentary. It's laid out as more of an appetizer and not meant to be a full meal. We also are ,by law, unable to provide alcoholic beverages... More
