Good for passing through, and apparently a lot of people stay here for the chiropractor nearby It looks sketchy from the outside, but it seems to be in a safe area. The only trouble is the noise. I had a hard time sleeping because every time someone shut a door it would echo throughout the building. It was cheap though,... More

Best Western seems to be improving on the quality of their properties in the last few years. This place does not fall into the "improved" category. Now understand, this property is not bad. The room is clean and what you would expect from a slightly better than average Mom and Pop hotel. But we were surprised to see it is... More

Greatly enjoyed the stay. The accommodations were great & the town was very interesting. If we are in South Dakota again we will definitely visit this place and possibly take advantage of the clinic in town.

I stayed here two years ago and it is as good as the last time. Check-in was a breeze and the desk attendant was very friendly. After returning from dinner, I went to the front desk to obtain a wifi password. Jim, the owner, was at the desk and I talked to him for a few minutes. Just as personable... More

I stopped here on the way to a business event. Ar first I thought it was hard to get to, but just followed the signs. The motel is quiet, clean, and hearing birds singing was a plus. The Check In man was no end of helpful and gave me all the details I needed. Got up the next morning and... More

We have traveled through SD many times, but this time were delayed in our departure. I looked for a Best Western Hotel at approximately the right distance (length of time) between Winnipeg and Denver and found this BW property. It is a hidden Gem. The 'Staff" were the "owners" who said that they prided themselves on the cleanliness. It certainly... More

Owners Judy and Jim Hale are awesome! They were attentive to all my needs starting with my late arrival for the evening of my return. Judy fixed a virtually made to order breakfast with REAL eggs, not the curdley ones at larger hotels. She was cheerful. Jim started my room heater prior to my late arrival on a chilly night....

Owners run a first class establishment for the area. This a small town area and a very well run motel. Owners are present every day and strive to accomadate their guests needs. Highly recommend that people go out of their way in the area to enjoy this motel. Great value.

I never review hotels, but felt compelled to review this Best Western because of our amazing experience there. It was truly a little oasis on our drive out west. The room was excellently furnished and they even gave us breakfast the next morning. The owners were extremely friendly. The place was sort of off a ways from I-90, but was... More

The owner Jim is great! Very friendly and makes you feel right at home. Stayed in a larger room with a fully equipped kitchen ( pans and dishes too) which is nice to have when staying in hotels for weeks on end. Town is quite which makes it easy to get a good nights sleep. Stayed here for 3 nights... More
