When we checked in we were put into a room that was once a smoking room. Asked to switch which they did generously. When we got into another room we noticed the carpet was very dirty. Didn't even take off my shoes. Frig didn't work. The light above the night stand wasn't plugged in so when I went to plug... More

Best price in the area; as we were going to be there for less than 8 hours, all we cared about was that the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Room was clean enough and beds were great. The place is in need of some serious upgrading, but you can tell that they care and they are trying! Have... More

The room we reserved did not lock. We then went to the office and exchanged the room for a suite, which had a kitchen, dining area, and living room area. The bed had several hairs that were not ours and the room was very dusty. The wall also had a dead bug smudged onto it. The air conditioner was very... More

Clean and quiet. Good location close to all attractions. Just needed a place to sleep and for $57 per night it was just fine. Bathroom could use some TLC and updating. Mini fridge in room was handy. And grab and go breakfast was nice since we didnt expect it. But no pets policy wasn't being adhered to since the man... More

Clean, comfortable room, convenient mid-town location, lowest price in area. Basic, older 2-story, outside entry. Free coffee, and breakfast (bananas, apples, granola bars, yogurt) Fast, friendly check in/out. Neighborhood felt safe.

My husband and I travel to race our sprint car at the race track. We spent one night 7/22. Checked in and out no problems. A few days later my husband noticed an additional charge of 220.00 for our room. My husband spoke to management which took a few days back and forth and management claimed we had a dog... More

I recently stayed here for two nights while visiting the Black Hills area. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. I'd definitely stay here again. My only criticism is that the breakfast is mediocre at best (cheap cereal, stale bagels, coffee with powder cream, yuck). Don't let this scare you away, just walk about 100 yards to McDonalds for...

Room is very plain. Window air conditioning high on wall. No way to control it. No alarm clock in room. Bathroom fixtures are stained. Big stains on ceiling. Room has not been upgraded and needs it. Continental breakfast is skimpy. Kind a very basic grab and run. A place to sleep but very expensive ($140 US, near $200 Canadian) for... More
