This is a basic motel. Good location to many areas in the town and also the surrounding areas of the black hills. It was a basic motel. they did not have a hair dryer in the room but if you asked they provided one at the desk. They also offered a simple continental breakfast. We planned to leave before the office opened and they accommodated us by providing ours when we checked in. Motel is clean but outdated.

Drove in & decided I wanted to see the room. The young man on duty showed me 2 rooms & said I could have either one. He was a very nice young man & quite pleasant to be around. The rooms were small, but nice & clean. Bed of okay, no breakfast.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel. The rooms are very small but very clean. It is not eye appealing..a not so nice looking building right in front of your room. No windows except a high one that I could not see out of. That said, the owners are very nice and it us centrally located for mount rushmore, and the badlands. No breakfast but Perkins is right next door. I probably would not stay again but wish the new owners the best of luck!

Dirty nasty hotel! I cannot figure out how this motel is getting good reviews. I believe there is a new owner who isn't keeping it up. Look at these pictures & tell how wonderful it looks. I booked this through booking.com & she disagreed & said it was clean. I am not happy with the hotel or booking.com.
