This is a nice little motel within a mile of the entrance to the Badlands. It is just a few minutes from the area where they have the Night Sky Ranger Talk. The room was clean and comfortable. The rubber threshold under the door was damaged and you could see daylight. There was a fridge, coffee maker and large TV. Clean shower (no tub). The nearby restaurant served a variety of breakfasts; I had Shrimp & Grits and it was very tasty. Good value for the money.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Location and the room were awesome. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location was right next to the entrance to the badlands. I would definitely stay here again if we visit this area again.

This motel is in a great location with a view of the South Dakota Badlands and within walking distance to the small town of Interior, South Dakota. Our room was perfect – it was clean, well appointed with a comfortable bed, microwave and refrigerator. There are chairs right outside the unit for enjoying the evening. This motel has a packed gravel flat surface and we had no trouble on our touring motorcycle coming in and out of the parking lot. ONE OF THE BEST PERKS is the Billyray's Badlands Breakfast & BBQ Café located on the grounds of the motel. There is a small store and laundry located next to the motel. The owners were super nice and helpful with our questions. When we arrived we realized the unit we had reserved (19) had a gravel hill parking spot - we asked for another unit since we were on a motorcycle and the owners were able to move us.

This is our second time visiting Interior and staying at this location. We were pleasantly surprised at the nice size of the room, and it was very clean. You cannot beat the view. We will definitely return here!

It is an average motel with basic accommodations so don't expect a lot of amenities. The best part is the location, just in the heart of badlands. The beds were pretty comfortable, no complains about it. The bathroom was not too good, very small and the water pressure is not a lot so if you have a lot of hair like I do, good luck with that!. We didn't try the pool so I can not speak about it. My family got the apartment where we had breakfast next morning. It was ok too. It is good for one or two night so you can visit the park at any time
Thank maluferrari
