We stopped for one night on our way to South Dakota. We were given a room (#230) intended for a disabled person so it was a little different from a standard room. Sink did not drain and the shower was difficult to use. It was on the highway side of the building so was a little noisy for a light... More

Let me explain the title of this review. For one night this hotel is very good, I wouldn't want it to be my multi night destination hotel, then it would be average. Often hotels on the interstate are pretty bad. This hotel has new carpeting, beds and bedding. The check in went smooth and quick and cookies were set out... More

This was a nice place. Room was very comfy and the breakfast selections were an added bonus. I thought this was reasonably priced for the quality of accommodations, we stayed in a whirlpool room. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on our last night of the road trip, and it was very comfortable. They offer complimentary tea/coffee and freshly baked biscuits in the reception area... Which is also the breakfast dinning area. With only 5 tables it makes it very cozy. Tip: avoid taking a room with a connecting door as sound travels

This hotel was an ok option to stay at, from what I read online people either destroy a place or make it seem wonder and then your disappointed, which this is neither. It's a place to stay with nice & helpful people working there.

this place is awesome. I booked via th BW website-cheaper than thru Priceline. The entire place was very clean, GREAT pillows - I have neck issues so I am a pillow expert! I paid $40 less than the hotel I stayed at a month earlier - that place was loud at night. The AC fan was good as well. Applebee's... More

This is a very nice Best Western convenient to an interchange on I-90, very comfortable with a friendly pleasant staff. Rooms are nice and breakfast was very good and well presented. We were on our way from Wisconsin to Rapid City South Dakota and this was a very nice place for an overnight.

Very kind staff, most attentive and helpful. Room was rather clean but plain--looked like some of it had been updated and some still needed to be done. The bed was very comfortable, however. Really nice TV. Not sure if the AC unit was working well; we were so tired and excited to almost be home, we honestly didn't care. They... More
