i WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. Whoever wrote the good reviews for this place...you must be tripping. I don't think they even clean the rooms or take care of them for that matter. When we first got to the room there was a plastic Wal-mart bag hanging on the bathroom door with trash in it. I was to... More

I mean - look at the reviews. Most people passing through aren't going to know or care that there is new ownership, or have experience for comparison saying that the rooms have been updated, but the positive reviews here all seem to mention it. Plus look - all the four and five star reviews seem to come from people who... More

After reading reviews and having a hard time getting a room before the start of Sturgis Rally, I chose this hotel. I reserved it for 2 nights, the check in lady was very nice (I believe she was the owner), she informed us that they had a breakfast in the mornings, and to let her know if we'd be around... More

New management has done a lot of upgrades. The hotel is easy to find and we could park close to our room. The kids loved the pool. Staff were quick to respond to our needs and to answer questions. The rooms were clean and quiet - we had people in surrounding rooms but never heard them. We used a family... More

We recently stayed at the Family Inn when we were in town. We definately got small town hospitality from the Staff. It was much better than some of the other reviews, could use some updating, but overall it was a great experience and we saved $$$$ Thank you

“The Middle of The Motel is Closest To The Pool (we've Stayed There in August 2012), Less Traffic, and Close To The Soda Machine, and, More Importantly, The Fresh Coffee Always Available In The Office, along with maps to Local Attractions, and Precise Directions To Other Services Needed, From Management/Staff.”
