The two-storey motel is built inside-out (well, outside in), around an internal parking courtyard, entrance off Cleveland. We parked in front of our room. Accommodation was average, as was the continental breakfast. Sundance is a sleepy town, stores closing at 5:00-5:30 pm, and empty on a September Tuesday. We found only one restaurant within walking distance for dinner.

The place seems a bit dated and dingy and it was a bit confusing trying to find the parking and office (which was locked when we got there). The owner was friendly though and the room and bathroom seemed pretty clean if a bit plain. They offer free breakfast but I would skip and look for something elsewhere.

For a one night stay in Sundance this place was convenient, clean and comfortable. We checked in on the later side and the staff were friendly and accommodating. It may not be the fanciest place but will certainly fulfill just about anyones amenity needs.

We stayed here for one night because of its proximity to Devils Tower. The room is a fairly standard motel room with outside access. Then why the 5-star rating? There are several important areas where I would give more than five stars if I could. First, the owner is extremely helpful and accommodating, truly caring about the satisfaction and comfort...
