We always stay here when we return to Yankton...but that may be coming to an end. Peeling wallpaper, missing baseboards in the hallway and missing basketball hoops from the pool play area made us wonder why our beloved home away from home was so rundown. Renovations? Changing to a Best Western? We don't really know. But the final kicker was...

Thank you for your candid feedback. I apologize for the condition of the hallways as we are in the process of renovating them. The second floor wallpaper was just finished this week and they were just starting to prep for the contractor on the first floor, which entails removing the baseboard and patching the walls. As we have been a...

Room was clean and staff was friendly, although rates are a bit pricier than nearby competitors. One bed (headboard) was in disrepair. Otherwise, a very nice stay for 6 nights. They have a nice restaurant (Minerva's) which had great food and good service. Good complementary breakfast also. Will likely return.

I was also very impressed with the cleaning staff - they really work hard to make your stay a pleasant experience. There...

Friendly reception, and very clean. Very comfortable bed with lots of plug-ins by the bedside table. Room had frig and microwave. Large bathroom with good light and a good shower, although the bathroom fan was very loud. Breakfast was good although the layout was awkward.

This is a very nice hotel. The staff went above and beyond for us. They accommodated us for an early check in with out any problems. The room was clean and pleasant. The restaurant on site is a very nice advantage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
