La Crosse, Wi to Mt Rushmore Hotel

We are planning on driving from La Crosse, WI to Mt. Rushmore NP. We want to limit our drive to about 8 Hours so we may have to break our trip before reaching Mt. Rushmore and stay on a hotel. Our plan is to continue on the following day to Mt. Rushmore.

Can anybody suggest a hotel that we can stay in.

A good half way point would be Mitchell, SD. Lots of hotel and dining options and rates might be a little lower than Sioux Falls. The whole drive to Rushmore is 11 hours - Mitchell would be 6 hours. if you really want to do closer to eight hours then Chamberlain is the the next good stopping point - at 7 hours. Al's Oasis a good bet for breakfast. This option would leave time to do the road through Badllands NP ot stop at Wall Drug. The TA hotel reviews are probably the best bet for Mitchell or Chamberlain recommendations. Although we stayed at the Kelly Inn in Mitchell once and liked it a lot. Interesting carved bears all over the exterior.
