“Good Value”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

Agree with other reviews: good value. Great location to Wall Drug Store and a bit further away from the highway than some of the other hotels in town. Had free Wifi, which was a nice bonus.

I booked this hotel after reading several reviews here on Tripadvisor. Everyone was right. John is very nice. The rooms are very clean. It is very close to everything. John was able to give some good suggestions for dinner, both within walking distance. The rooms are very basic, not even a hairdryer. But the beds are comfortable, the AC works, and it is very clean! There is no elevator, so if you cannot go up and down steps, make sure to ask for the bottom floor.

The Sunshine Inn is basic; but clean, comfortable and the man at the desk was very friendly. I would stay here again.

We decided that we needed a short stop for the leg home of our 3000 mile motorcycle trip and picked the Wall SD, Sunshine Inn as the place. We booked on the internet and were apprehensive with the unknown. But we were very pleased with the inn and the owner was the most accommodating and friendly we have ever met in our many years of travel. Even though we arrived early before normal check in time, we were in a room and soaking in the ice cold air in minutes. It was so handy to the shopping and eating we came and went several time that afternoon and evening. There is no reason in my opinion to stay anywhere else in Wall!

We traveled to South Dakota to pick up our new dog from a rescue organization. We had originally planned to stay in Rapid City but as it was right before the 4th of July most hotels had really raised their prices. Plus, we needed a place that would let us stay with our new dog. Since we were going to visit Wall Drug and the Badlands we decided to stay in Wall.

After reading reviews on this site we decided to give the Sunshine Inn a try. Our stay was great! The owner, John, made a point of talking to us several times during our stay and not just to say "Hi." He addressed us by name-something that never happens at larger hotel chains we stay at. The room was nice and clean, functional, and comfortable. WiFi was available as well as a great channel line up. A big plus for us-it had the Sci Fi channel-something many hotels do not have! We were able to stay at the Sunshine Inn for 3 nights-for the same price it would have cost us to stay at the HI Express in Rapid City for one night!

Wall Drug is one block over and the National Grasslands Visitor Center (where our daughter earned a junior ranger badge) is across the street in the opposite direction. It is near the Badlands and the Minute Man Missile National Park/Monument areas and only about 40 minutes to Rapid City.

The owner makes this place great. We were on our way from Mount Rushmore and called to see if we could check in early. The housekeeper answered and told us not until 1pm. We were hoping to check in earlier since we would be in Wall early. The owner called me back on my cell phone and told us we could come on in when we got there. It was great not having to wait for the room. The room was plain, but great for the price we got. I would recommended it. However, make sure you take a shower at night and not in the morning when all the hot water is gone.
