“Nice Mom and Pop place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

The staff was great. It was a no brand mom and pop place without the usual amenities, but the staff more than made up for this.

Speaking as the "Pop" of this Mom and Pop operation, I can tell you that "Mom" and I couldn't be more pleased by your comments. Thank you for sharing them here. We strive to give our guests great value for their money and are just plain tickled when we get feedback like yours. Hope we get a chance to see you again! Best wishes, Pop--aka John (owner, Sunshine Inn)

Once again we stayed at the Sunshine Inn on our way to the Black Hills. It is clean, comfortable and super convenient. one block to Wall Drug and next door to the Buffalo gap national grasslands visitor center. Once you have parked your car, it is not necessary to start it again, while you are there as everything including the grocery store is
in walking distance. the people at the visitor center are very helpful and gave us great information on the grasslands. If you study the grasslands you may end up with a new hobby. we definitely will be going back.

So glad things went well for you during your stay with us. Yes, the National Grasslands are a wonder in their own right, with so much more than meets the eye when scanning the majestic, open prairie. We get a lot of pleasure at the Sunshine Inn by helping customers who want to venture into the country, including providing outdoor enthusiasts with maps that are specially prepared for rock collectors and hikers. A stay in Wall is a great jumping off point for exploring the Great Plains. We try to make our guests comfortable while here, and well-informed when they choose to explore the region. Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn)

My wife and I stayed at the Sunshine Inn after we had to cancel our camping plans as the weather was 100 degrees in SD during our two week journey out west. It's right downtown close to Wall Drug and some eating and drinking estalishments. This is an owner/operator run property; the Owner, Paul I believe really made you feel at home.

Thank you for the kind remarks. I'm sure our building, chock full of brand new and powerful air conditioning units, provided you with some cooling relief during this exceedingly hot summer. I'm the owner (name's John, by the way) and am on the premises practically 24/7, making sure our rooms stay clean and functional. Engaging customers like you in a friendly and neighborly fashion is one of the pleasures of this operation--and I appreciate you taking the time to notice and comment about it. Hope I see you again sometime. Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn)

Very reasonable rates, friendly staff and nice comfortable beds. We took my mother in law to the Black Hills for a get away. When we made the reservations, I requested a ground floor room so she would not have to walk up the stairs. Not only did we get a room on the ground floor, but the owner, John, parked his car in front of our room to save us a parking place in front of our door. Wow. We were very impressed with how thoughtful he was.

We will be staying there again next month and any other time we are in Wall, SD.

It's not only our business, but our pleasure, to fulfill them. Looking forward to seeing you again! Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn)

My husband and I spent 2 nights here near the end of our SD vacation. I had read nearly all the reviews for the Sunshine Inn on this website and decided to give it a try. We had a wonderful stay! The room wasn't huge, but it had everything we needed. When looking for a hotel, I look for a place that's clean, comfortable, and affordable. For me, it's got to be all 3, and this place did the trick. The service was amazing, the owner a very friendly fellow. If you needed anything, all you had to do was ask. We could walk down the road to visit the world-renowned Wall Drug. Also, this hotel is only about 10 min. from the Badlands park entrance. The only caution I might add is that the walls are somewhat thin if you have noisy neighbors; I simply had to reason w/ mine one floor up, then they quit stomping around like a herd of buffalo. Also, my husband mentioned getting a little blast of cold water in the shower once or twice, but in the 2 nights we were there, I never had an issue. All in all, a great place to stay. We hope to come back in the future!

We couldn't be more pleased that your expectations were fulfilled at the Sunshine Inn. We appreciate that you resolved the noise issue directly with your neighbors, however on the extremely rare occasions when we're asked to quiet down some customers who have exceeded their "noise quotient", a word to them directly from me is all that is needed. In building the Sunshine Inn we took pains to install extra soundproofing in the walls, so noise complaints are rare. When they do arise, the matter is resolved promptly. Thanks for the kind remarks. Hope to see you again. Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn)

We booked our stay at the Sunshine Inn based on trip advisor. It was a very clean room with a comfortable bed. But the best part of staying at Sunshine is the owner, John. He makes sure that you feel welcome and is a great host! Thanks to you John our stay was great. Next time we come back thru Wall we will look forward to talking to you! Ponders from Montana

Just stayed here on 07/17/2011, a block away from Wall drug & across the street from Badlands Harley :) room & tv were on the smaller size. We were there to sleep, so that wasn't an issue for us. Brand new bed in our room which was very comfortable!! Good price, friendly desk clerk & clean room would stay here again!

Thanks for the gracious remarks and for calling attention to our convenient location, within a block of Wall Drug and the rest of the downtown shops, restaurants and attractions--as well as directly across the street from the new Harley-Davidson Of The Badlands shop. We're excited to be a part of the continuing growth and vibrancy of downtown Wall and strive to make a good night's rest in a clean, comfortable room part of the experience. Your comments make us feel that we're succeeding, and challenge us to maintain the level of quality you found here. Hope to see you again sometime. Best wishes, John (owner, Sunshine Inn)
