“Good Basic Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

This motel is a fine basic motel. We stayed in the suite which gave us extra room and it has a sofa bed if you need more beds. The room could have been cleaner, but I'm not super picky. There's a nice cafe close by called Peggy's place that had good basic food as well. Staff was pleasant and helpful. And they have a good laundry facility too.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you need a ground floor be sure to ask early.

They advertise as being the closest hotel to Mt Rushmore. They really are. Going over to Mt Rushmore and other Keystone attractions (Presidential Wax Museum and Alpine Slides are in walking distance) is very easy. The room itself was in decent condition. It was clean and we had what we needed. Breakfast area is a little cramped but the selection was fine for a continental breakfast. The parking situation is the major drawback to this hotel. They literally don't have enough spaces for all the rooms as it is. Three of the 5 nights we were there we were unable to get a spot when we returned to the hotel. There is a shopping center right next to the hotel that has several stores and restaurants. We were instructed to park there. They have signs up all over that say any cars parked overnight will be towed. We weren't towed but it made me nervous parking there. Be aware that there are 3 floors and no elevator. Be sure to get a ground level room if steps are an issue for you. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who isn't visiting at peak travel time as the parking wouldn't be as much an issue if they aren't fully booked. It's still decent at other times.

Reasonable price, clean rooms, friendly staff. Located a little ways north of the main boardwalk. They have a pool!

My wife, two daughters (11 & 8) and I stayed here recently on a trip through the area on our way to Yellowstone. Our stay happened to be during Sturgis Bike Week, and it was amazing how quiet the room was. We were on the first floor, next to the office, and didn't hear a thing all night. Room was pretty standard for a Super 8. We found it to be clean and comfortable, and the rate wasn't bad considering when we were there. Continental breakfast wasn't bad either.

The only negative is that they need a different system for staffing the front desk. . . upon check-in, I stood and looked around for someone to help me for several minutes, and ended up calling the hotel from my cell phone to get someone to help me check in. Same thing on checkout. . . nobody there. Finally someone showed up as I was walking out the door after just leaving the room key on the desk.

Having said that, both of the folks at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating - even allowing us to leave our car in the parking lot until after lunch time so we could walk into town and do some shopping.

Check-in here was very speedy! The room was on the small side, but ours had the sink outside of the bathroom, which is nice when we were sharing it with another couple. The beds were more comfortable than some hotels we have stayed at. Even being during the Sturgis Rally the price was completly reasonable. It was very close to Mt. Rushmore. There is a mini mall right next to it that has a DQ and BBQ place. We ate at the BBQ place, I don't know if they were stressed with all the people being there or what but the service was horrible. The free breakfast the hotel gives you is very small, more of a snack to hold you over til lunch. They had some fruit, bagels and mini muffins. But when we got there they were all out of cereal and did not fill it back up. Also had some danish pastries but that was it. Very small room in which to eat as well. However, overall I thought it was a great value and since it was close to everything, I cant complain much.

Room Tip: Make sure and shop around, I book this through my credit card and got a members discount, and was ab...
