“Friendly service, clean, and right in the middle of Wall Drug”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

We arrived on a Thursday night and it was very quiet. There were only about 3 other rooms taken up and the friendly man at the front desk gave us the lowest rate possible which was very nice, especially after getting charged the regular rate at the Quality Inn in Rapid City the night before, which was a slow night as well. The room and bathroom were very clean, and they included a really good smelling soap in the bathroom. The only thing the room needed was a clock. This is not really necessary but a nice convenience. We had some decent options for food during the after hours. There was a dairy queen around the corner, and we could have ordered some good bar food that even had delivery but we went for the dairy queen. Breakfast was included consisting of some sweet rolls and orange juice! :)

The service here really made a difference. It was nice to encounter someone so friendly after getting a somewhat rude reception at the Quality Inn.

We stayed at the Sunshine Inn on our way to Lead for our wedding, We stopped in and stayed for the night. The room was very cozy and VERY clean ! Being a former hotel GM myself , I was VERY impressed and VERY happy. the price was right and the accommodations were impeccable. The woman that checked us in was very helpful and friendly. breakfast was fresh coffee and donuts, just enough to get you by. We walked over to Wall Drug for their exceptional breakfast and .05 cent coffee.We also stayed on our way home back to Wisconsin. next year we WILL be going back to South Dakota for our 1st anniversary vacation and will be staying in Wall at the SUNSHINE INN. WE LOVED IT !

We came into Wall after long drive. Hotel was easy to find and less than a block from Wall Drug. Hotel in on same / main street as all the gift shops and restaurants that Wall is famous for. It is easy walk to get 5 cent coffee at Wall Drug. We checked into hotel and went up to 2nd floor room, but I could not open the door. Had to go back to lobby and ask hotel owner to assist. Using his hip he pushed open the door. The room was plain with blue carpet but immaculately cleaned. The bathroom was sparking clean even in the corners. Room had 2 queen beds and a TV. I had to use hotel telephone because I could not get cell site signal. Luckily, I still had my AT&T calling card. Hotel owner was very friendly and had a Bob Newhart sort of personality

My husband and I stayed one night here while traveling to Yellowstone. Older motel but they are super nice people and the room was spotless.

We are seniors travelling on a budget. We selected the Sunshine Inn for our overnight stay in Wall on the basis of the advertised price but also on the excellent Tripadvisor reviews. We were not wrong. The Sunshine Inn is conveniently located at the end of Wall main street, with easy access and adequate parking. It is privately owned and John, the owner, runs the place personally. Upon our arrival he greeted us warmly and checked us in without delay. The room was not large, but was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast consisted of coffee and sweet rolls, which was quite acceptable to us.
This is definately the best deal in Wall---why pay more?

My best friend and I stayed here while we toured parts of South Dakota. What a great place and and even better price tag. The man who owns the Inn and the woman who works the front desk went out of their way to fix our tv when it wouldn't work. I was very pleased with my stay at the Sunshine Inn!

While this is an older property, it is well maintained. The owner takes great pride in his Inn.
He called us by name, even tho he had never met us.
Would stay here again!
