One night stay on our way to Rapid City. Saw the mixed reviews and thought we would give it a try.
The Good: Awesome girl checked us in and was very friendly and helpful. Allowed us to see the romm before we booked. The location is great, right off I-90 close to everything. The are remodeling so we had a nice flar screen TV, micro and frig. Aske for and received a quiet room.
The Bad: Parking Lot was terrible. I know they are working on fixing it up. but it looked liked it was carpet bombed. The towles were too small and thin. Not sure why places skimp on these things, they really matter. Breakfast was a joke. It was the size of a walk in closet and with 6 people in it, we didn't even bother to see what they had.
The Ugly: The beds and pillows. Why spend all the money on fixing up a room and have a terrible bed to sleep in. It was one of the worst I have ever seen or laid on. Please, please, burn it and replace it with a least a cot and sleeping bag, it would be a big imporvement.
