“Good deal”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Nice place, but you have to remember it's a Motel, and not a Hotel. No free shampoo or lotion, and no plaque stating they have items for your use if you forgot something. We had a corner room that had the ice machine next to it. Thought that would be a problem, but never heard it. Yes , the rooms are old and could use updating, but everything was clean, so no complaining. Outdoor pool is small, and was heated to bath water warm, which was not appealing to me, but the kids didn't seem to mind. Breakfast was a cold one - cereal, bagels, toast, English muffins, bananas/apples. Filled us up, which means it did the job. We'd stay there again if vacationing in the area.

This hotel was more conveniently located than others as we did not have a car. It is easy walking to the downtown area and Main Square. It is nothing flash but is comfortable and clean, with a comfy bed. The staff were friendly and helpful.The breakfast was basic but good & had plenty of variety. You could hear what was happening in adjacent rooms but it wasnt a problem and our sleep wasnt disturbed. Dont expect complimentary shampoos etc.
If I had a car I may have chosen differently but I will be more than happy to stay here again and to recommend it to friends. An added bonus is the jail across the road. The inmates can wave and call out to you from the rec facilities at night - it was a funny experience. Value for money.

This was a great little family-owned motel, very friendly, helpful staff. The room was clean and inviting. There was a small outdoor swimming pool which was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was small but adequate - cold cereal, toast, bagels, English muffins, mini rolls and muffins. There was no coffeepot or hair dryer in the room. Overall, this was a great motel experience, and we would definitely stay at this motel again.

I only stay at places I review, this is why I choose to stay here.It had very good reviews and they were correct.

It is a great little motel- clean and comfortable. Basic but it was just fine on our road trip- we arrived around 8:30 and was greeted so pleasantly. Breakfast was nothing fancy but basic - that was just fine with us we had to get back on the road at 7am. It consisted of cold cereal, muffins, toast, jelly, banana's and coffee. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a value but clean safe place to stay.

Scored a pretty good deal, but it just wasn't worth it. This is the first hotel I can remember that has real keys rather than cards. It's on the older side. The room was for the most part clean, they needed more attention on the tub/shower (also provided no shampoo or conditioner). What garners my poor rating, it's LOUD. Had I not been super tired from driving for so long, the noise would have kept me up all night. You can hear everything from adjacent rooms and outside. Breakfast was about par with every other hotel, and the service was quite nice.

It's right by plenty of downtown food and shopping. Also if you park don't move your car, there are maybe half the spots needed on their property, or you'll be parking in the abandoned lot next door.

If you are a female traveling alone, the rooms at this hotel have a physical key-not the credit card kind. This means that it can be copied, and thus is not safe.

Motel is run by Dad, son and grandson that are very nice and accommodating. Rooms are clean and well maintained. We had corner family suite (two twins and two queens, small dining area and bath) for $75 that included breakfast in newly remodeling breakfast area that is absolutely spotless. Small in-ground pool. Walking distance to many good restaurants in downtown Rapid City and a great little dairy freeze with delicious soft serve. Exceptional value!
