“nice clean motel, nothing special”
Reviewed April 5, 2008

The Sunshine Inn is a perfectly nice place to stay. The rooms were a little run down (chipped fixtures in the bathroom, etc.), but perfectly clean - no reason to avoid staying here. (I'm a very picky traveler and the Sunshine Inn was fine for me!) The staff was very pleasant and the location could not be better (half a block down from Wall Drug).

  • Liked — location, cost (we paid $40 - mention their website for a $5 discount)
  • Disliked — little bit run down

After reading a review of this property on this site I called and booked us for two nights at the Sunshine Inn!
The owner/manager is just as pleasant as can be. Although it is an old property the beds were clean and comfortable.
The location is perfect..just down the block from the Wall Drug store and nice local restaurants.
On our six week trip across the West and back we tried to book independently owned properties and this was the best...we never needed the car for the two days we were in Wall..except of course to drive to the Badlands. The town has a lovely old feel to it and the hotel is in keeping with that.

Spent 2 nights here on a visit to the Badlands. Spotless, convenient and staffed by helpful friendly owners. 1 block from Wall Drug and easy walking to two or three restaurants. Will stay again if we return. Tom and Lynne from Illinois.

The staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful, and they gave us a a great price on two rooms because we needed a separate room for our toddler to take a nap and go to bed early in the evening. In fact, on our cross country drive, this hotel was the best price. On the other hand, the rooms are a bit run down and the breakfast consists of packaged donuts and coffee with powder creamer. However, this hotel is just one block away from Wall Drug, which was very convenient in the evening, and just a short drive to the amazing Badlands. I would definitely recommend the hotel to someone looking for a friendly, cheap place in Wall (although it does not have the amenities of the larger more expensive chain hotels.)

We stayed at this motel one night 7/29/07. It's a small drive up to your room door type motel located conveniently one block from the famous Wall Drugstore.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the A/C worked fine, the desk clerk (I believe he was the owner) was friendly and helpful with directions, the location was convenient to visiting Badlands National Park, and the price was reasonable.

We would definately stay there again.

Nice location, right down the block from Wall Drug. The staff was lovely. Our room was fine, if a bit old fashioned. The much advertised wifi wasn't working, which sucked. Reasonably priced for the location.

This quaint hotel is less than a block from the stores in Wall.

No pool but the price was forty some dollars. I had to look at the bill twice! Our family of six. (four kids under 10) all fit. With two beds and a rollaway it was cozy but all we did was sleep there anyway. It was our rest stop from the badlands park.
The ladies working there were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I felt like I was staying with relatives. The room was clean. After we drove by the other hotels I thought we could have stayed in the big name chain ones, but I was glad we stayed where we could park the car and walk to everything in Wall. Mention you saw it on the internet for the discounted price. This was one of the smallest bills on my charge card for the whole vacation. I hope they don't change anything.
