“Ripping off the Best Western Name”
Reviewed 16 November 2010

If you enjoy taking a shower complete with intermittent scalding, while all the water (and other stuff) backs up in the tub around your feet and ankles -- this is your paradise.
It was older, dirtier and more dysfunctional than any Best Western I have stayed in. I cant imagine any of the other motels around could be worse - and they are much cheaper.
Don't be fooled by the Best Western name- it should be taken away.

The title says it all. It's a Motel. The room was spacious, beds were comfortable and the place was spotless. No frills nothing fancy but fine. There's nothing better in the area. Typical continental breakfast.

Stayed for 1 night, and wasn't impressed. Didn't sleep well because of some neighboring unhappy children. Room was awkwardly arranged but bed was fine, and breakfast was cereal, toast, English muffins, hard boiled eggs, and biscuits and gravy. Pool and breakfast was in a separate building from the hotel.

We had two rooms at this hotel in mid-June. Frankly, there's not much to choose from in Wall. Wall, however, is a good base for a nite to see the sights of this particular part of SD. It's an easy walk to "town"--mainly the Famous Wall Drug Store--and minutes from the Badlands, the Minuteman National Historic Monument and the Prairie Homestead (which we hadn't planned on but enjoyed our visit to). Yes the rooms (mainly the exterior) are worn, but there's a decent continental breakfast and pool. After looking around, we concluded we had the best of the not-so-great choices with this hotel.

Usually I like Best Westerns and this one is on the lower end of them. It is more of a motor hotel, you will drive up to your room door and go in from the parking lot. There is an indoor and outdoor pool with and indoor hot tub which are very nice as is the breakfast room. The drawback is you have to walk outside to get to all of them we were there when it was 95 degrees outside so not a big deal to us but if you stay during a cooler time of year you may not like having to walk across a snow covered lot to get to the pool and breakfast. Rooms were not the most clean and beds were lumpy.

This hotel is very old. Unfortuantely, there isn't much to chose from in Wall. It certainly wasn't worth $107 (plus tax) a night. I would try to avoid staying there and continue on to Rapid City.

Reviewed 31 July 2010

I am giving this hotel only two stars because of its overall poor condition relative to the price. We stayed in a two room suite with two double beds and a queen and paid the triple A rate of $228 for one night.

The rooms were old and had not been renovated in some time. The biggest issue we had was with the beds, they were not comfortable and had very old bedspreads instead of newer comforters. The bathroom had an older bath with a shower, which was difficult to position in shower mode. The amenities were two bottles of shampoo/conditioner, but no hair dryer.

Pass on the breakfast, it was marginal at best. My overall impression was there was little incentive for the owners to make improvements to this hotel, and were relying on the Best Western name to justify their prices. I recommend passing on this hotel. Not sure about other options in Wall but if it is not too far I recommend staying in Rapid City instead, where you will find many better options. From there, it is only about 30 or so miles to the Badlands.
