We were here for a state tournament. Rooms were clean. Pool area could use some maintenance and a good cleaning but usable. Night shift guy at the desk played Xbox more then he worked. But staff was friendly.

Stayed in The Governor's Inn February 2nd and 3rd, 2017. I drove more than 24 hours to get to South Dakota for the birth of my first grandchild.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and spacious. The pool was warm- perfect temperature! The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not grand though as the eggs were yucky. They appeared to be the same partially burnt eggs reheated each morning. The biscuits were stale and the only fruit was apple. The waffles, yogurt, cereal...

Well located...easy parking and walking access to amenities and restaurants. Room was clean and staff was excellent. Our stay was 4 nights and the rooms were refreshed every day...would stay again. Moderate Pricing for an above average motel.

I like that this is not a chain motel. They have a small but nice pool area. I prefer their rooms with outdoor access, but any rooms are always clean. My only complaint would be that the halls and common areas are sometimes in need of some touch up. Their breakfast is great and appreciated.

We really enjoyed this hotel while we were in Pierre and it felt very welcoming and friendly.

I'm giving this low review because I asked for a refresh in my room so I could get more towels and my trash taken out, I got told "if the housekeepers have time, they will." Also another day, I asked the housekeeper for service and she said my room only gets done 2 days a week. I think that if...

Room had a terrible odor in it, website says adequate parking and plugins for boats, only true if you are one of their guides, had to run a cord out of the window to plug in charger on boat. parking area is very crowded. Also lighting in rooms is not hardly adequate.

This is an older hotel--but--the rooms are very, very clean and items look new. However--the smell in my room just ruined the stay. Thinking it was just my room, I asked two coworkers--and they all reported that their rooms smelled. Maybe mildew? Maybe mold? I thought it was the AC--but turning it off did not seem to help. I won't...
