Have never stayed with this chain before, won't ever again. I find it hard to believe the other reviews that called this place "awesome" we're written by real guests. At check in, the staff was not pleasant, and in fact seemed annoyed that we booked through a third party site. We did not see our room until later that evening, after a trip to Mt. Rushmore. Let's just say I was instantly on the Internet looking for a new hotel. We could not get a refund from the third party, so decided to ask the front desk for another room...on the 2nd floor. Now, this time she was fairly pleasant, and although quite flustered by our request, did move us to another room...which was a little nicer. We also felt safer up there, as the window in our first room did not lock. Also, as a side note, we saw a couple going to thier room with two dogs, so dogs are permitted In the first floor rooms....great for someone with allergies! And is it a coincidence that the carpet in the 2nd floor room was cleaner? At any rate, it was a cheap place to stay, but next time, we'll pay a little more to get more, and definitely check out the next hotel before booking!
