    Room was smallish but sufficient. Clean, clean, clean. Bathroom equally compact but functional. WiFi was sloooow. Like most places fridge was not very cold. It hummed loudly so I unplugged it. The price was right and I would stay here again.

    We went on the road past the crazy horse memorial and it took about 45 min. Make sure you return that way, we turned left from Rushmore and if took a bit longer to get back and a bit more navigation.
