“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Good location but car considered desirable (as in most of U.S.A.).

Spacious comfortable rooms with good facilities.
Many facilities not usually in hotels are on site (eg laundrette).

Breakfast basic but enjoyable.

Staff helpful.

Thank you taking the time to review our hotel on Trip TripAdvisor. I will be sure to let the staff know that you were pleased with the services we have to offer. It is unfortunate for our guests, but it is almost a necessity to have a vehicle while visiting the Black Hills, especially during the late fall, since many of the tour buses have shut down for the winter, We do hope you will consider staying with us again the next time you are in our lovely area.

This pet friendly motel was invaded by more dogs than people because there was a dog show in town. There was a dog in the room next to us and it barked all evening and from 4am when they put it outside in the car, on both nights we stayed.
Otherwise the hotel was excellent. Very good house keeping, excellent breakfast, and friendly reception staff. There were also free cookies and beverages available in reception.

For three days in October,, our hotel is open to all dogs and their owners who are here for the kennel club dog show. Normally, we have a few select rooms open to dogs and we do charge a pet fee. However, during this time, all rooms become pet friendly and we eliminate all pet fees. I am sorry that you were awakened by a barking dog. Usually the dogs are very well behaved, and their owners take exceptional care of them. Thank you for your review, and we hope you will consider staying with us again.

We got the last room available for the evening and very glad we did. Beggars can't be choosers but we loved the room. It was located on the Southern part of Rapid City which was excellent for our plans. Also just next door was an excellent restaurant the Colonial House. It was recommended by the staff at the motel and they proved correct. The food was excellent, not necessarily reasonable but not too expensive either.

The motel is easy to locate on the south side of town. the facilities are large, the front desk is courteous and friendly, the rooms just OK and need some updating. the morning breakfast is skimpy and coffee though hot is awfully weak.

We stayed here for three nights on our vacation. It was the perfect type of motel to stay in for more than a couple days. Drive up to the door, continental breakfast, great restaurant right beside it, and on the right highway to all the attractions. The room was roomy, the beds were comfy, and the service was good. I think that if you don't have a family that you are travelling with, the off season is much more reasonable for room rates.

Room Tip: they seem to be willing to negotiate on room rates

This motel is a bit different with the new wings spread out so far. We stayed in the old section of the hotel in the updated rooms, which were nice. Nothing special, but had everything I needed. This BW is near dining, fuel and Mt. Rushmore. Breakfast area is a little small for the number of guests. Otherwise, nice.

Room Tip: Lots of ground level rooms available.
