The owner, John ,was very courteous and he has owned this quaint motel since 1977. The room was extremely clean, good size and reasonably priced. It is next door to the famous Wall Drug Store and right up the road from the awesome Badlands! We travel a lot and this is one of the better ones! George and Anne Nick

Large clean room. Very biker friendly. The owner provides towels and a space to clean your bike. The whole complex is clean and friendly. Only one block from Wall Drugs. Coffee and danish available in the morning.

Thanks for the great review. At the Sunshine Inn, we go the extra mile to make all of our customers feel like they're getting a good deal. Motorcyclists can count on the few extras that make their special situations fit right into our program of convenience and cleanliness. In addition to providing cleaning cloths in the morning, we have an... More

It was a good place to stay. The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. The breakfast was small but good. They served coffee, orange juice and rolls. The hotel was located in a great location within easy walking distance to downtown Wall.

I just made a phone call to inquire about room availability and pricing for next week and was met with the rudest (and even hostile) communication from John. He told me there was a room on the first floor and gave me a price quote. I asked if there was a room on the second floor due to safety (as... More

I have no idea what you're talking about. I do try to let conventional tourists know when the Sturgis motorcycle rally is occurring (for a week every August) because there is a great deal of commotion going on, 24/7. As to calling my motorcyclist customers "scary," I'd be willing to bet that each and every one of them would vouch... More

The Sunshine Inn was just what we needed for a quick overnight stay for a family of five. Free rollaway, friendly owner, clean. Doors open to outside and office empty at night area felt safe. Walking distance to Wall Drug and close enough to Minuteman Missile Site (15-20 min) to get up early for tour tickets while leaving the rest... More

Thanks for staying and sharing here. As you note, we can be the "perfect" stopover for those who are heading for other destinations. Many of our customers actually do use the Sunshine Inn as a "headquarters" for experiencing the wonders of our region and coming back for what is probably the best lodging value they can find in the area....

Perfect little stop. Affordable, clean, nice and friendly. Exactly what we needed for one night of traveling through. We felt safe and parking was great. Coffee was ready before 6:30 in the morning and was free and good. Definately will stop again.

I did a solo trip to the badlands earlier in July, and discovered this gem of a place. Very clean, reasonably priced and most importantly, the gentleman at the front desk was the loveliest man! Very sweet and welcoming! I strongly recommend that you support local businesses and stay here if you're visiting the badlands national park/mt Rushmore.

My kids and I stayed here on our way to and from the Black Hills from Minnesota. John is as kind as the reviews say, the rooms are very clean and the sheets and towels are so soft! No extra charge for a roll away and Wall Drug is a couple blocks away. I would definitely recommend the Sunshine Inn!

Thanks for staying and sharing your kind words about the Sunshine Inn here.

Wall Drug is literally two doors north across one street! The owner, John is very much old school in his approach to running an inn. I wish more places were run like the Sunshine Inn. The rooms were immaculate and the rates the best we found in town for the high season.

Thanks for staying at the Sunshine Inn. "Old school" pretty much sums up the way we do business here. Great value, "immaculate" rooms, personable service and attention to details--that defines "old school" to us. You can bet our commitment to that standard won't waver. We couldn't be more appreciative of the accolade and certainly hope that we'll get a chance... More
