Young couple are new owners and fixing it up. Our expectations were low, but it was clean and comfortable. The pool looked inviting if we'd had time. Definitely would stay here again!!!! Great value. Easy access from I 90. If the continental breakfast isn't right for you there's a cafe nearby.

A little old couple running a old school motel. If you'd like a throwback experience this is the place for you. The bed and towels are clean so I guess that's all that matters. If you get scared easily show up before dark because it is a little creepy if you arive late. Have a sense of humor and enjoy...

My best friend and I walked in looking for one room for one night. We were quickly satisfied with our request and it turned out to be one of the nicest hotels I've ever been to! The following morning, we woke up to watch the sun rise over the badlands! :) We stayed in June 2014.

My wife booked this room for the last night's stay before returning home after a 6 week, 8 national Park tour. She got panicky because of the Sturgis Harley Rally and this motel was available so she took it. She had been shocked to see that every major chain in a 200 mile radius of Sturgis had jacked their prices...

Called ahead to reserve a room, during which time I gave my credit card information. Showed up the next day... The smell when walking in was not pleasant and the couple that own it half live in the lobby area. I said hello to a man watching TV and folding towels several times before he realized I was there. I...

We were on our way home to Florida after our vacation in Montana visiting family. We happened on this motel by chance. It was one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed at. The beds were so comfortable I slept great which is not often for me in a strange place. I had awaken at 4:30 am so I...

Frankly, this building needs to be condemned. The outside is beyond the point of being unsafe. Broken windows on the bottom floor, ripped curtains, rotting wooden stairs. However, once we got past the outside, the room itself was in fact very clean. They even had a brand new tub/shower insert in the bathroom and a brand new shower curtain. The...

The only reason we even stayed at this place was because my brother-in-law pre booked our hotels as we drove his moving van across the country.
