This is a basic motel but it is clean and the location can't be beat. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We had a good hot pancake breakfast in the morning. It is a cool way to spend time in the Badlands. Wall, SD is close but you can't see the formations from the town. After a long drive,... More

We stayed here 1 night. Wow is the word to be able to stay right in the middle of the badlands. Campground had electric and water hook ups but there is no private space between campsites. Just all campers parked along the side of the campground road all in a line. Picnic tables are there in the grass area behind... More

The Badlands Interior is a great option for a budget accommodation close to the Badlands. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and well maintained. The location offers breakfast on site but I did not try it - dinner is not served and there are a few local spots to try (mostly... More

Very friendly owners. Great location right near badlands, away from the Wall crowds. The town of Interior gives you a sense for the reality of life in Western SD. Not a fancy place, but everything you need in a place with few choices. Pancakes were very good & filling. Kids really enjoyed the playground. Beautiful setting. Also rent tipi tents... More

This motel is super basic but it's literally all you need! Price was way cheaper than staying inside the badlands at the cedar pass lodge and you end up only being 5 minutes from it. This hotel is right outside the entrance to the badlands! Super basic room- no tv, beds were okay, small shower but what more do you... More

We stayed one night at the motel. I was a bit apprehensive due to reviews. However, we wanted to be near the park. It was an ok stay. Nothing glamorous but it was clean. There isn't a lot of food options in the store or town. Wall is nearby and pretty close to the North entrance. We went to Dairy... More

Super clean motel and a fantastic value. The motel is a throwback to the good old days. You can tell the owners truly care about their customers and take pride in their business. And it's in the perfect location for visiting the Badlands. We loved this place.

We stayed in the family suite of the Motel. It was average in most ways. It was clean but dated. The beds were very poor and even the kids noticed this. There were limited pots and pans in the kitchen. It was the second day we were there before we got dish towels and dish soap. Everything was very dated.... More

We really enjoyed this RV park. Kids loved the pool and playground. Wifi worked. Didn't use the showers so I have no opinion on those. You are right at the entrance to the national park and the visitor center. You can't get a better location. You have an amazing view of the badlands. I wouldn't want to be in a... More

This motel was exactly what we were looking for - somewhere cheap and basic to stop along the way on our trip. The location is AMAZING. Right by the Badlands Scenic Loop road, which drove multiple times during our short stay because of how beautiful it was. There was a strong smell of cleaning products when we arrived but it...
