After traveling all day from CT it was nice to check in and be taken care of by Brenden. Brenden accommodated our early arrival. The room is very clean and the atmosphere is relaxing. HoJo has free libations/snacks and continental breakfast. Thanks Brenden!

We used this hotel as a base for our visit to South Dakota. It was midway for day trips to The Badlands, Sturgis, and Mt. Rushmore. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff friendly and helpful. And there were laundry facilities! Perfect for our needs.
