We stayed here while visiting the Badlands. Everything there was great. The housekeepers left a cute heart shaped towel with a note. The rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast was the best we had at a motel on the whole trip. They even had a little treasure chest for the kids. Overall a great bargain!

We stayed here for one night.The check in process was smooth, the staff were friendly.. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, the shower was good. The only problem was getting on line. It wouldn't get past google for a couple of hours, but was OK the next morning. They said someone will come and have a look in 5 to... More

We really enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable with a great breakfast buffet. Reasonably priced. Extras in the rooms. The room was larger than most with a comfy couch and big screen TV. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Stayed here on are way back from the badlands. Friendly helpful staff we stayed on the top floor seemed quite enough. The breakfast was great with a lot of seating we would stay here again. Had a little trouble with the wasps that were flying around but other than that we had a great stay.

This hotel resembled the old-fashioned motels of yesteryear. It was very basic and antiquated, yet clean. Staff was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The breakfast took us by surprise! It advertised a continental breakfast. Given the appearance of the motel and our room, we had very little expectations. The breakfast exceeded our expectations! It was a very good full breakfast!

Awesome staff, clean and at a good price we have always hesitated on outside door hotels. The setup of this hotel made you feel secure. Nice breakfast area and grounds. Easy on easy off location with numerous gas stops and convenience stores within walking distance.

We stayed at this motel twice in the last three months. Its location is convenient to the Black Hills and the Badlands. Both times we were pleased with how clean the room was. This family-run business takes pride in both the property and in customer service; the room was quiet, the breakfast included several options, and the staff was friendly.... More

Nice clean place that does a good job of covering the necessities. They serve a free breakfast and have an indoor and our door pool. You can walk to the tourist area easily from here. They have cable TV and hbo!

If you are looking for a place to stay that is near Mount Rushmore, Wall Drug, or the South Dakota Badlands, this is a good option. The rooms were clean and spacious. There were outdoor corridors and the breakfast nook was in a separate building across the parking lot. We enjoyed going through Wall Drug-so much to see! We also... More

I give this place a 4/5 b/c most motels are not this nice. The pool was nice, the breakfast was great, and it was clean. There is even a television in the pool area! The staff was friendly and it's family owned. I would recommend it.
