Hotel decor a little dated, but the staff and accommodations were excellent. Pool is large indoors with a water slide big enough for adults. Breakfast a little limited but again the staff was quick with refills. The manager was engaging and kept a tight ship.

After a ten hour drive this was great. It is very quiet and clean. Rooms were nice and big so you can stretch out after a long drive. It is within driving distance of Mount Rushmore, Rushmore Mall, and the Black Hills.

Lobby and bathrooms are updated, but that's where they stopped. Rooms were OK, a little dingy and our bedding was stained. The breakfast was nothing to rave about. Our first morning there was biscuits and gravy, slim pickings. Some cereal, instant oatmeal, boiled eggs and muffins. No creamer for coffee. The second morning they had biscuits and that's about it,...

Holes in the black out curtain. Stained sheets, very gross. Tiny pillows. The shower curtain was filthy & the towels were...you guessed it, stained. Beds were fine. Went down for "breakfast" at 7:40--it's open until 9. They were out of gravy for the biscuits & gravy & we were told they weren't going to refill. All that was left was...

Pretty good location with a few restaurants around, we found an outback steak house across the parking lot. The rooms were clean, really no complaints. It worked for a comfortable enough stop after wondering around the Black Hills for the day. For what I paid, I was satisfied with the room.

This is a pet friendly motel. They serve a wonderful breakfast every morning starting at six thirty in the morning. They have a good menu, biscuits and gravy, cereal, toast, fruit, juice, coffee, muffins , milk etc all you need for a good breakfast and the breakfast room is very clean.

Great room, wanted to pack up the beds and take home with me. Very clean and upscale. Terrific hot breakfast and really good strong coffee which we helped ourselves all day to. The pool was super crowded at the time we where there. Also the pool is like a waterslide/wave pool and if you like regular pools like our family...

The outside of this hotel,is deceiving. The rooms are up to date and comfortable. The pillows however, need replaced, very thin. They have a pool with a slide that was always busy with lots of kids, mostly on the nosy side, so you really couldn't enjoy the hot tub, plus the pool seemed small for the size of slide they...

I usually stay at Choice Hotels and am rarely disappointed...but this was the exception. One of our blankets had huge areas so threadbare you could see through them and also had blood spots. Took it to the front desk, clerk said they had NO other blankets! He thought we'd sleep under it. Finally he found a spare sofa bed blanket...

Don't go here. The check in clerk did not say hello, just "what is your name?" The room was OK at best. The AC quit at 11:00 pm. The room looked abused in every corner. The place was loaded with unchaperoned young kids in the halls. The pool was packed with kids till closing. The business office computer had 6...
