Reviewed 26 August 2013

Check-in was very pleasant; the room was large; staff was busy cleaning grounds. Location was fairly convenient. There was a nice enough pool. It seemed that the TV 's volume was limited so you couldn't bother your neighbors, which I appreciated. Despite many pluses, I must say that I have been in older properties that presented, and smelled, more bright and fresh.

PRO'S = The rooms were large and very clean. There was the usual amenities, hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, small refrigerator. CON'S = The water was a yellowish color, but very soft. Was more expensive ($78) than stated on tripadvisor, but average price for the area.

Overall a nice place to stay.

We recently stayed at the North Winds Lodge enroute to the bike rally in Sturgis, SD. Debbie (owner/manager) was there to greet us and gave us a review of the local restaurants. The room was incredibly clean, with no detail leftout. My husband's favourite 'touch' was the cloths left on our motorcycle in the morning, to wipe our bike down.
Highly recommend this motel.

Room Tip: No restaurant or room service, but many restaurants located minutes away.

Remote location but extremely clean rooms and helpful staff. You will appreciate the friendly smile given at reception desk for check-in and check-out. Questions regarding area restaurants and Things To Do (Enchanted Highway) were enthusiastically recommended.

We heard that in this area of the country the motels would be expensive and not so nice. This place is an exception. As some other reviewers have said it's super clean, affordable, very quiet air conditioner and a big room. We were lucky enough to get room 42, which is on the end so we didn't have a neighbor on that side.

The night we were there a storm came through and the owner made room for another guest to park their trailer load of expensive Harleys under the front awning in case of hail. I actually parked mine under the overhang in front of my room with no complaint from the owner.

Be prepared for bad water in this town, which is no fault of the motel owner. Even the restaurant we ate in had yellow, oily water.

As we were leaving town the next morning the waitress in the restaurant told us this is the best motel in town and I believe it.

Room Tip: Bring drinking water. The whole town's water is yellow.

This hotel is not only reasonable, but clean! For as little as this room cost, I was surprised at how large the room was. The room smelled fresh, and was super clean. Very quiet motel and the location is great. Outdoor pool was nice too. I will be staying there again.

This is a great little motel. The family running the lodge are extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was big and very clean. Bathroom was small, but I'm willing to make exceptions for a small, family run facility. Heated pool was very clean and felt great after a long day on the road. Beds were really comfortable. This is the only place in Bowman you should be stopping at.
