After reading many Trip Advisor reviews we decided to stay at this hotel on our trip from B.C. Canada to South Dakota. It was our first stop and for one night only. Luckily we arrived right at the check-in time or we would have been standing around waiting for the 'hosts' to come back from doing their shopping. Some things to add that previous reviewers didn't mention is that the hotel is right on the main highway going through town (in fact, so is the whole town). Although traffic was going by, I didn't hear it at night and our room was facing the road. The hotel is right across the street from a very nice park that kids/dog could easily be amused by. Also, the hotel is just up from the museum. We arrived there on a Monday and there was only one restaurant in town to eat at - everything else was closed.The hotel does have an old barbecue and picnic table on the side that anyone can use - you just have to have your own utensils, dishes, etc. (including food). There was also one grocery store open - everything was easily within walking distance. The hotel has a fridge in their 'breakfast room' where you can help yourself to water, juice, etc. all day long. The room itself was your typical antique room with a free standing bath. There were also two bathrooms down the hall that anyone could use (one with a shower). No air conditioning was available in our room - only a fan - but Dave left the door open to an adjoining room (which wasn't being occupied for the night) so we could get some cool air from that air conditioning. For breakfast there was coffee/juice/water and some packaged pastries. The best was their one and only fresh scones from the bakery. We just had scones and coffee and had a real breakfast further up the road.
