We recently stayed here while on a road trip through South Dakota. We were referred to this hotel from another hotel that was booked up for the night. They were nice enough to hold a room for us until we arrived. The front desk was extremely friendly. We were given a nice

Do you have to pay for a refrigerator
We had one in our room at all three stays, so I am guessing that they have them complimentary in every/most room/s.

"Rooms on the north side are quieter because they are not facing highway 212. There is no elevator."
"If traveling with a dog ask for a room in the "D" wing."
"Book a hotel near the interstate ahead of time!"
"The rooms at the back are quieter, not view to speak of from any room so the back is best"
"Definitely recommend asking for second floor."
$99 - $122 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
