This is the true definition of a budget hotel in the middle of nowhere, a village of 650. Room was clean, very basic amenities provided. Two stories, no elevator, free but slow internet. Would stay again only if I had to. About a mile away is the village of Kadoka that has an excellent diner called the Aw Shucks with... More

We stayed here overnight on the way to Badlands and Mount Rushmore. We didn't have reservations but thought we would check to see if there was a room. The only room available was a pet room. The flooring was not carpet but a laminate flooring. The room was clean and didn't smell. The caretakers we're welcoming and friendly. A few... More

We checked in late, luggage and belongings all over the place, tired and dirty from a long day. Our rooms were upstairs--no problem! The host, Dwight, hauled it all with a smile on his face, while his wife, Garnet, checked us in. The rooms were clean, comfortable , and well appointed ; the complimentary breakfast was fresh and varied. Both... More

We made a reservation on the Internet. We were able to check in early, but room wasn't ready. they were very helpful when we brought our luggage in and held the door. Room was so-so with obvious stains on the carpet I mentioned that and was told it was hard to get help. Breakfast was not up to standards of... More

We traveled to Kadoka , SD on Sept.1, 2015 to attend our 17 year old nephew's funeral who died as a result of a car accident. Dwight and Garnet Finchum , the managers of this inn, are AMAZING people. The care and compassion they extended to Trevor's 21 family members that traveled across the State of MN and Eastern SD... More

I'll keep it brief. We stopped here on our way to Montana. We arrived late from being on the road all day and checked in around 11pm. The front desk lady was very nice and we checked in very quickly. The hotel was sold out so make your reservations. The room was very clean and the room suited our needs,... More

The host and hostess were the best part of the stay and that means a lot. While the facility was clean and well maintained, it is probably close to the time to have it "updated". We would stay there again, for sure, again largely because of the host and hostess. What I am NOT happy about has nothing to do... More

Relative to other "budget" hotels, America's Best Value Kadoka was e.xpensive, shabby, no breakfast, no elevator to second floor, stains on carpet, TV cabinet doors would not stay open, no nearby decent restaurants.

This hotel is just off I-90 and is easy to locate and plently of parking is available. The hotel is close to a service station and several resturants. The hotel... More

What a great stay. The caretakers we're welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. This was ur first visit to an America's Best, we will return if they are all like this. A few more options for breakfast would be nice but we did not leave hungry. As a side note, Jiggers just down the street was a... More
