It was amazing! Clean rooms, spacious, comfortable beds...it was perfect. Brenda Tillery, the owner was lovely, too. Very kind and helpful. This place is... More

I was bale to get a room at the gold star on a days notice. I was told that I would be glad I stayed here as opposed to staying at the western thrifty. The room was spacious. It is located very close to restaurants and stores.

I stayed two nights at the Gold Star Motel and was very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms as well as the comfort. For the price, it is a gem. It's just off a main road, but is quiet. The beds are comfortable. They had cinnamon rolls and orange juice in the morning. The one thing that I would... More

My family of 7 were in Rapid City for the evening and trying to find a hotel that would sleep us all for less than $300. We got super lucky and found this place. It was well within our budget (1/2 the prices of the competitors) and the beds were more comfortable than rooms three times the price. We will... More

We found this Motel listed in the S. Dakota state listing book for available hotels and motels. When we arrived in Rapid City a few days ago, we decided to check it out since the hotel we had previously used near Hwy 16 was gone. We were very pleased with the welcoming attitude of the person on duty who graciously... More
