“Clean, comfortable hotel with access to everything.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This hotel is all the reviews say, a little rough around the edges, with no state of the art amenities, but the amenities they do have work (which is more than I can say for three much nicer/higher rated hotels we have stayed in this summer).
The pros:
COLD AC, this has been a big problem at much nicer hotels this vacation
Comfortable beds
Convenient Location
Nice Pool
The price
Very little noise from room to room
Bathroom was really, really clean
The Cons:
Everything is well-used, comforters were clean, but had some stains, ditto the carpet

The hotel is older but has unique style especially in the lobby and around the pool. We were given a room by the pool which was great for the kids. Pool was a bit small, but clean and warm. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The towels were small and very worn. The breakfast was basic with cereal and toast. I didn't notice smoke smell until the am when I was walking down the hall. It was very strong. I'm glad I couldn't smell it from our room. We would stay here again.

This is great hotel for the price. It was clean and comfortable. The person at the front desk was friendly and helpful. She took time to answer questions about the area and places to eat. She had a typed listed of the local restaurants and gave us some information on them. The only thing I wished they had was some fruit for breakfast. I have to eat a gluten free diet and wasn't able to eat the breakfast. But, they did seem to have a good selections of cereals, toast, and muffins and my husband thought it was good.

Thank you for your feedback! So sorry to hear you were not able to enjoy our free breakfast. Unfortunately, we have limited space and are unable to satisfy all appetites. However, when there is discussion of improvements or remodeling, your comments will definitely be taken into consideration.

Stayed here for one night wile passing through town for business. Was not expecting much since we paid very little for the stay, but our room was clean, large, odor-free, and generally very nice! One thing to know: no fridge or microwave, but that was not a big deal for me since I was just staying a night. Clean, clean, clean - cleanliness is my #1 concern with cheaper hotels, and this one really exceeded my expectations. Comfortable beds. "Eh" breakfast, but it was fine for the price. Highly recommend!

My sister flew in and we spent a week exploring this rich historical cultural area. The booking (Expedia) for both rooms would have been fine, but the staff upgraded my sister to a king next door to our room, very generous and accommodating! The motel is just off one of the major freeway arteries around the area so it was very easy to get around. The staff were very friendly and helpful in suggestions. We were able to visit the Mammoth Site, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Wall (Wall Drug), Deadwood and the Hill City wineries. Always a pleasure to hit the comfy bed at night! The breakfast offered Jimmy Dean Egg n Sausage biscuits and muffins. The coffee pot was never empty. Two things kept this from an excellent. They had just painted the pool so it was not available, and the stairs are a little short with a carpet that gives me a dizzy feeling. If you have ambulatory issues ask for a bottom floor room. There are games and books for kids on the 2nd floor, and the pool when full.

We were a bit dubious when we first pulled up, it looks a little dingy from the outside. Once inside however it's a lovely place. The entrance lobby is very homely and the rooms are clean and comfortable. There wasn't much choice at breakfast but enough to get your day started- toast and cereal. It's about a half hour drive to Mount Rushmore and just a minute off the highway. There's a Walmart opposite and plenty of restaurants around. The staff were really friendly and helpful. It's obviously a well cared for
hotel with little touches such as games you could borrow and fresh baked mini muffins at breakfast. For the price you couldn't ask for anything better.

Hotels in the $30-$70 range need to be evaluated together and not compared to $80-up. You just have to expect that you get what you pay for. If you get a cheaper hotel, you know what you are in for and there will be a few things that are problems. This hotel was great. Front desk really nice and helpful, above average clean and nice looking room, excellent breakfast options, good location. Perfect hotel for the price range it is in.
