“Hole in the Wall, South Dakaka”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Do not stay here, keep going to Rapid City. Rude clerk, unclean. Outside lights not working, dark a hazard. We wish we never would have stopped at this hotel in wall. I don't know where the other reviews stayed at but it certainly wasn't here, or they must be related.

Room Tip: Do Not stop, just keep going!!!!

This property has been recently and is undergoing a facelift an reconstructive surgery. We had never stayed there before and weighed it against a local Super 8. The clerk at the America's Best provided a glowing description of the included breakfast. That description made the extra difference of $20 seem acceptable.

Check-in was at glacial speed as the clerk spent serial sessions on the telephone. The room was large, spacious and clean.

Reality set in the next morning at the breakfast session. I asked where the eggs, bacon and fresh fruit were - the attendant answered that she was unaware of any such items. There was a very, very soupy biscuits and gravy. Also, the alternative to the biscuits were round, manufactured bread-disks with cheese and crumbled egg on them - maybe that was the eggs the clerk described thhe night before.. The coffee was scorched and juice was non-existent. Fruit was canned, crushed pineapple - I hate pineapple. There were some tired looking oranges in a wire cornucopia.

We stay every year at an America's Best in International Falls, MN for about half the price and fine what they have to offer to be quite good - we will save that for another review.

Room Tip: As far as we can tell, they are all noisy due to the proximity of other motel properties

We were pleasantly surprised when we stopped here. We have never stopped at America's Best Value Inn and decided to check it out. The motel is an older motel that has been remodeled and we found our king room to be roomy, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is in the morning and we can let you know how that goes. So far So Good!

Room Tip: The king on the end. Nice privacy.

I live only 40 miles from Rapid City and know that Wall does not have a lot to offer in the way of hotels. I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into our room! I travel a lot and this one was of the nicest I've stayed in! Tongue & groove walls with wood floor and electric fireplace made for a very cozy atmosphere. The bathroom was immaculate. The host was very friendly and very accommodating to our special request for a rather late checkout. The price for being off-season was very low too. Obviously there wasn't a full breakfast bar since it's only March with very few visitors, but the host offered us sausage gravy biscuits to order which was delicious. If you need a place to eat dinner go to the Red Rock - we had a yummy walleye dinner. And Wall Drug always has good lunches.

This was my first stay in a America's Best Value. The rooms have been remodeled. They have large screen TV's. The bed coverings model the Holiday Inn and Hampton's with the white Duvets. The manager was very pleasant. The one draw back was the hotel has poor sound proofing.I could hear the person walking around in the room above me and I could hear the TV playing next door, It was a good value for 60.00 a night

This was the best hotel on the vacation I recently took with my husband. Not only was it the most reasonable in price, but it had the most impressive rooms of all three places we stayed at. The room was cleaner then any of the other places we stayed and had wonderful features that helped make our trip even more special. The room we stayed in had a brand new TV and a fireplace along with wood floors and pine paneling on one wall. We were looking for a single room, but they had none left available and were more then happy to give us a double for the price of a single. The room also came with a refrigerator, microwave, and futon. The staff was more then happy to answer any questions we had. They also had a wonderful breakfast including fresh biscuits and gravy upon request.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk which rooms they would recommend. We only found the wonderful room that we had b...
