This place was smelly as soon as you walked in the room, stained carpet, no amenities (one tiny bar of soap for 3 days), old, thin sheets. But the worst part was being awakened at 1:30 am and hearing drunken sex in the adjoining room (the housekeeper/bartender). Disgusting! We were there with a large group and I heard complaints of bed bugs and the housekeepers dog in heat and with fleas going in the rooms when she was "cleaning" (so to speak). Stay somewhere else.

Check-in process was smooth, but one step in the room showed a dirty room. One of our beds was not fully made. Bugs in the room, the so-called security latch was inoperable due to the latch piece missing. Our blinds did not fully cover the window, allowing for no privacy. A dog in heat was allowed in whatever room she wanted. The microwave and refrigerator were filthy. We did not feel comfortable here. This place is not worth $69 per night.

We stayed at the Kings Inn for 3 nights in September (2013), we had the reservations far in advance of traveling and wish we had done better research. The place was nasty, especially the bathroom. Staff came in everyday and all they did was make the bed; the bathroom was never touched, vacuuming never happened, supplies were never filled. We wanted to move but everything else in town was filled.

We stayed here 8/24/13 and our experience wasn't like that reflected in some of the other reviews. The room was not fancy, but we didn't expect it to be. It was clean and basic and fit with the rate. We ate dinner at the restaurant next door (run by the same people), Boomba, and the food was good. Again, not "fine dining," but good. There are definitely flies outside, but there were flies outside everywhere we went in South Dakota, so we didn't blame the flies on this hotel. We visited with the people running the hotel and the restaurant, and they were nice and offered tips of places to visit in the area. Although it was late when we pulled it, and later when we ate, the young man running the hotel and the restaurant was pleasant and welcoming to us. He brought us extra pillows and a blanket for me with a smile. Our stay here was just fine and we were happy to find it for that rate.

If you go to the website you will be deceived by what you see there...rooms are actually very dated...hideous green paint, very dirty rooms - carpet not clean, cob webs on every fixture, no shampoo or condiments and though a continental breakfast is advertised on the website it is not offered nor would I be prone to eat there. The pool had about a foot of nasty sludge at the bottom and probably hasn t been in use in years. Even after a shower you don t feel clean. The key cards never work - the owner is quick to say the system cost over $15,000 and it doesn t work right. I highly recommend staying at ANY other hotel in the area.

The rooms are large and that it's the only positive about the place. The owner is strictly out to make money because there is no service. The flies are everywhere and their carcasses are all over the rooms. The place has never been dusted or acumen. One bar of soap only and that had to last for the two day stay we were booked for. No shampoo. The towels looked like they had been used to wipe off motorcycles. The key didn't work and the owner said you just have to try until it works. There was no continental breakfast. The fridge was unplugged, closed and very smelly. The place was dirty. The toilet did not flush properly. It appears that one day the place will be condemned as there is certainly no money being spent on up keep.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Motel room was full of flies and spent 30 minutes trying to kill them all. Carpets dirty and unclean. Comforter on bed was stained and dirty. Garbage under sink full from previous guest. Recent remodel of room seemed limited to ceramics and looked hastily and poorly done. Room was spacious and had a microwave and fridge. Grime on most surfaces such as blinds and chairs. Pillow was thin and hard but matress was alright. Pool was drained seemingly due to poor condition. Front desk staff, whom I believe to be the owner, was friendly. Cleaning staff were courteous. Price of room was very high at $150.00 due to a motorcycle festival and owner taking advantage of the high demand situation. Should have slept in the car instead.
