“Cozy little place in Hot Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights over labor day weekend. It was a very clean place. A nice and quiet location, we slept like babies. The parking was great, right in front of our room. The hotel is also close to downtown Hot Springs.

The owners are well traveled ;)

This is a great motel that is clean and comfortable. The beds were advertised as new in 2012 and felt great. It was a hot weekend with highs in the mid 90s, yet the AC was cold in the room. The room was very clean, absolutely no complaints. Refrigerator and microwave in the room is a nice perk. The staff (owners I assume) were very friendly, seemed genuinely interested in the happiness of their guests. The breakfast in the morning is your standard fare, nothing fancy, but adequate for a quick bite with coffee, toast, donuts, etc. The pool area was very nice. Good size pool, nice deck with a few chairs to lounge in. Parked right in front of my room. The water was hot, with good water pressure, and a good selection of TV channels. Seriously, this is a great value for what you get. I guess my only negative would be no Wifi service.

My wife and I arrived an hour after the office closed (due to flight delays and issues with a rental car). We called the manager on the house phone and he came and opened the office quickly and checked us in. He was very nice and joked with us a little. It was a very warm welcome after a long drive. Rooms were clean and neat. We are very glad we stayed here!

The rooms were clean and cozy. The family staff was very friendly. Thanks for a nice place to stay on our way to Big Sky. The hotel was quiet and peaceful. Wally and his family are super kind. The hotel is within walking distance to great places to eat and fun things to do.

We took a last minute trip to the Black Hills and this was the only motel with a vacancy. The room was clean and spacious, plus we got a free round of putt-putt for being guests. Wally was absolutely fabulous!

If you want a large room, you'll have to go elsewhere. Probably built in the 50's? I liked parking in front of my door because then I didn't have to carry the bags far (no steps, no hallways). It's a family operation and they are doing a great job. The bathroom is VERY small, but the place was very clean, the bed the most comfortable (almost rivals my own), and quiet. There was an pool that we didn't use, but we played a free round of miniature golf. They did have cable, WIFI, and complimentary breakfast. This would be a terrific place for one or more nights. I've been at nicer places, but their bed beat them all for comfort. There's a grocery about a half block away and some very good eats in town.

Donna & Wally are a very hardworking couple who are owners/operators of this extremely comfortable and clean motel. The rooms were spotless, spotlessly clean bedding, very comfortable bed. Great bathroom with everything in working order. TV, fridge and microwave. Wally was full of information, the best eating places, the scenic routes and what to see, etc. Ask him anything and he will oblige. Lovely, enclosed, and safe swimming pool. Mini golf next door and next door to that a beautiful walk along the riverside, just the place to go after busy days visiting the fantastic Parks and Museums nearby. Wally is always there on hand to help and give advice if needed. We recommend this motel for the price, comfort and the lovely couple Wally and Donna, not to be missed. We will return. Lovely.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
