“Great value -- friendly owner”
Reviewed June 28, 2009

We arrived late (with a reservation) and found the owner waiting to greet us. The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. I chose this hotel based on other people's reviews and was not disappointed. You can have coffee and minimal breakfast at the hotel or head down the street to Wall Drug.

A rather austere room--No pictures on the wall, no coffee maker, no microwave, adequate beds.

Close to "downtown" Wall.

You came to Wall, South Dakota to view the Badlands, didn't you?

The owner, John, answers his phone and engages you from the onset. The place is simple, clean (very) and pleasant. I can't say anything fluffy or grandiose....I just wish that there was a place like this in every City we visited on our trip. Well done, to everyone there. Highly recommended.

Backpacking in the badlands in early March confronted me and my hiking buddy with a couple days of weather a bit too harsh for tent life. We scouted out a few of the hotels in Wall, and found the Sunshine in to be the best deal. Finding a place that was easy on the wallet was all that we had sought. Well, on top of that, we were treated to the interesting conversation and great hospitality of the owner, as well as an immaculate room; which was a good size and very comfortable. Located in the heart of the town, we were able to meander the streets during the day, and check out the National Grasslands visitor's center right next door. By the time the weather had improved, we were fresh-legged and high spirited. A locally-owned hotel that definitely exceeded the quality of chain hotels was a great find on our trip.

I initially emailed him about their pet policies. He returned my email to say they were welcome. The other review regarding John are on mark. He is pleasant, hospitable and fair. We cut our stay short because it was cold and very windy (and we'd wanted to check out the Badlands). He returned our 2nd day prepaid funds without prompting.

The room is clean but cut rate. Bring your own shampoo!

We have stayed at Wall's Sunshine Inn several times, after trying other Wall facilities, and now would consider no other. For location, service, courtesy and information, Sunshine Inn tops them all. John has a fantastic memory...On only the second time we pulled in, with no reservations made, John was waving and smiling from the Inn's doorway as soon as he saw us, "I remembered the pickup and knew you when you pulled into the drive, and I've got a room for you," he confirmed. As we left Sunshine Inn he advised, "When you go home, and reach South Dakota's border, call me and I'll save you a room." We did, and he did. You can bet we will be back, John!

5 star motel at a 1 star price ! could not have asked for a better host, a cleaner room or better suroundings felt very comfortable, just like i was home . If all sunshine inns are like the one in wall I'll never stay in a motel 6,8, again.
