Get there early or you will get to climb stairs! The room was good though, we were satisfied with the cleanliness and amenities. The Wi-fi worked well, and though it was near the highway, we never heard the traffic. Would stay there again and recommend it to others for the price.

Because this is a pet friendly hotel, I told them I was traveling with my cat. "Pet Friendly" appears to mean they put you in their dirtiest room. The room and bathroom were clean, but the smell of old smoke and disinfectant made it difficult to breathe. The location is perfect for an early morning take-off to go through the...

Upon arriving at this location, we thought the outside looked sketchy. The pool was not in service and the grounds looked a little off. The young lady at the front desk was not personable at all and seemed to not like her job. When we got in our room, we were surprised because it looked much better than the exterior...

We made the reservation on the road and as we drove up to the motel, I was leery about the quality of the place. But to our surprise the room was very nice, very clean. The owners must have just remodeled the rooms. The outside could use some updating. The bed was very comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was nice....

Due to rain and lack of choices, we had to stop in Kadoka for the night. Ok, so this is an older roadside type motel and it lacks the modern conveniences. The biggest problem were flies. They have fly traps all along the outside doorways, but they were still a problem. I did get a good night sleep and that's...

The building is a little dated. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean. Standard continental breakfast but area was clean an well stocked which was an accomplishment since the place was full. Great place to stop over for the night.

Room was typical of older motel on the Freeway - decor had seen better days but it was clean, breakfast was cereal and packaged stuff. Attitude of desk clerk was a bit unpleasant. He knew other hotels in town were either full or closed and he made it clear that if we passed up the room he had available we...

It was late and we needed a room. We turned off the freeway and the rate was lower on this than the one next door but still think they over charge. Standard two queen room, ok clean but an old carped that had seen better days. Two outlets on the wall above the nightstand for charging cell phones. Bathroom clean...

HI Thank you for the review. I am sorry that you were unhappy with the price, but you did stay at the peak of the summer season. Also, I am sorry about the flies, but we deal with that issue this time of year and it is an ongoing problem. We hope you stay with us again. Kind Regards. Eric...

In short, what I can say is this hotel definitely hikes its prices from being one of the only motel/hotels in the area. Unfortunately, due to Sturgis Bike Rally, we were left with little options since everything was booked up for miles. This was the only place that had rooms available with in 50 miles. We ended up paying $200...

We stayed here on the 2nd night of a 12 day motorcycle trip. This is an older hotel and the rooms are small (we had 4 adults in our room and it was tight). However, the room was very clean. My husband and I got in late due to some mechanical issues - the 2 nearby restaurants were closed by...
