$150 for a room that was worth $45. There were tiny fleas all over the window, which I had to open to air the room out. I set some fruit out while I showered. It was covered with flies five minutes later. While the room was 'non-smoking', the number of guests lounging on the steps and turned it into a hookah lounge.
The bed must have been used by sumo wrestlers as a trampoline.
The front clerk was at least apologetic.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in one of the remodeled or newer rooms and inspect it first. Better yet, stay at The Pi...

This has the quality of a low budget motel at about 100% mark up. Nothing larger than full size beds and they charged 6 bucks per night for a roll away bed. The place looks like crap. We had holes in the wall stuffed with toilet paper. At the prices charged, I think they can splurge for some repairs. A look around shows the owners' pride in the place. Pond looks like a swamp. Hardly any of the sign lights work completely. Rooms smell musty. Flys are thick. By 0830, the coffee was all gone with no interest in replenishment. On the positive side, the pool was good and the female night clerk was very nice. Overall, I would call it a disappointment to Newcastle.

Maybe because I was a walk-in and maybe because the proximity in time to the Sturgis Motorcycle rally I was charged $130 for a two-bed room. Nothing really bad about the place, but a lot of little things that just don't make me want to give it a better rating. For example, the food was reasonably priced and quite tasty but there were flies in the dining room and the faux leather upholstery on my captains chair was torn. Or for example the non-smoking room had sand filled and butt-filled urn ashtrays to either side of the door outside. Sitting outside watching the lightning on the horizon was diminished by the ashtray smell.

A/C did not work when temp was in the high 80's and the owner and front desk did not seem to care very much about anything other than collecting payment

For a low cost no frills stay the Fountain Inn is a good choice. Though the outside of the motel is dated the room was clean and comfortable. There was no continental breakfast offered but the on-site restaurant offered a tasty breakfast for $5.99. Internet is available at no extra charge.
