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.

My son and I needed a place to crash for the night as we were travelling through and we found this on the TripAdvisor app. Called them up and were given a clean, comfortable room for a great rate. Walked to a super little restaurant and returned in time to watch Mr. Trump accept the GOP nomination (Make America Great... More

Thank you so much for the kind remarks!

Our powerful air conditioners are just one component of the excellent furnishings and fixtures that we maintain and upgrade... More

This place had a great rate, comfortable bed, and clean atmosphere. My husband and I drove nearly 12 hours for the first leg of our trip out west and this was not a disappointment. It isn't a super fancy place, but we just needed a stopover. The owner was very accommodating and friendly, and seemed genuinely interested in our travel... More

Thank you for letting us be part of your journey! You're right, we're not "super fancy" (couldn't be if we tried), but we do offer the best lodging value in the region. After a long drive through this great American prairie, our customers are usually more than ready for a friendly and accommodating greeting, which we provide as our way... More

After 11 hours in the car, and several more to go, this was just what our group needed. Very clean, surprisingly comfortable beds, bright bathrooms, just all around good value. If we come through Wall again, we'll be sure to stay here. Staff were polite and helpful, with extra amenities available in the office.

"All around good value" are the kinds of concise and comprehensive words that we love to hear because they say it all in a nutshell. When customers stay here at the Sunshine Inn we strive to make them feel like they got the best lodging deal of their entire trip. Our Sealy Pillowtop beds make for a great, comfortable night's...

Beginning with phone call to make reservation to checking out, John, the owner, made our stay easy and welcoming. The room was clean and had all the conviences you need.

We wanted to spend two nights in Wall so we could have plenty time to see the Badlands & enjoy a rodeo in Interior (SD). After reading the reviews of this motel I gave them a call.

Sunshine Inn was a delightful find. My friend and I were on a little bachelorette trip before I get married in October, and we decided to stay here for our Badlands adventure. We're both so glad we did! When traveling, it's the little things that stand out. The Sunshine Inn, was full of "the little things." The towels, for instance,... More

Yes, the hotel is clean. It is comfortable. It's older, but welcoming. The value is unbeatable. But John, the owner, is reason enough to stay at the Sunshine Inn. He was A W E S O M E.

Received a recommendation to this place from Rocket Motel in Custer so I figured I would give it a try. Let me tell you, this place lived up to the recommendation.

Wall isn't a place you would choose to go but if you find yourself here we found the Sunshine Inn to be quite comfortable and very well managed. Chat with the owner a bit. He has quite an interesting background who has seen a bit in his time. And he was so welcoming and warm.
