Traveling on I-90? Close to Kennebec, SD at end of day? We found the Budget Host Inn a nice, clean place for the night. Barb runs a very nice small motel and cooks up a nice breakfast sandwich for you in the morning before you hit the road again. Nothing too fancy but clean and quiet.

This property is quaint, quiet and clean and worked perfect with my work related travel schedule. Probably one of my better nights sleep in the last month, the bed was great and even had a nice quilt on it! There are only two restaurants that I saw on google maps in the town of Kennebec, but both are within three...

I was in Kennebec for a funeral and needed a place to stay the night before. Gerry's had the 3 most important things I want in a hotel. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water for a shower. The breakfast from 7 to 9 was very good. (breakfast casserole, burritos, biscuits and...

There isn't a lot of choice when you stay in Kennebec, but I was very happy with Gerry's. I travel alone so feeling secure is important to me. The area that this little motel is in isn't landscaped, it's just a big gravelly, dusty area, so it seems mildly sketchy, but the woman at the desk (Gerry?) was so pleasant,...

The room was exceptionally clean, the room comfortable and the owners welcoming at both the motel and the bar for a burger and steak bites. The excellent breakfast the next morning was included and the best free breakfast of our trip by far. We liked so much, we tried to work it to stay again on our way home, but...

Needed a place to stop on our way to Yellowstone. Based on prior reviews, we decided on Gerry's. While just a small motel, the room was very comfortable as well as the king bed - comfort plus! Room was very clean and provided the basic toiletries, i.e., soap & shampoo. There was no blow dryer but I had my own....

This gem was half the price of anything listed for miles around it. Not only was the room surprisingly large but was extremely clean. Truly one of the top cheap places I have stayed. The breakfast that all the reviews seem to rave about was indeed good. Recommended

I have stayed here before. The hotel itself is nothing special, but it is clean, and comfortable, and priced for the budget conscious traveler. What separates it from other hotels in this price range is the breakfast. The host makes the breakfasts, very tasty, unique, and filling. It is also well located making the next day an easy reach to...

We stumbled upon this hotel via TripAdvisor and I wanted to throw in my 2 cents. If you want or need to stay in Kennebec you don't have many hotel options. I think I saw one others place but when I read the reviews about how clean this place was I knew it was for us. Here's the interesting thing...

A clean motel(cleaner than most big city motels) on the way to Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone. Reasonable 30-90 dollars compared to Rapid City 70-300 and Chamberlain 60-130 depending on season. Full hot breakfast raved about by many. ... more   less
