“EXCEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I have never posted any comments in all the years I've used tripadvisor, but this Best Western deserves an excellent reveiw. Our family of five stayed here in July for one night on our way to Mount Rushmore. Not only was our room immaculate, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Their continental breakfast is EASILY one of the best I've ever had. The actually serve mimosas and fresh made omelettes in the courtyard, and inside you can whip up a batch of waffles (batter, waffle maker, and all). We were very pleasantly surprised! Stay here!

My husband and I stayed overnight here whilst travelling from Denver to Mount Rushmore. We were given a beautiful room in the new block. (no fridge yet here but there will be) Apart from the banging of the internal doors (there are 4 rooms within each door in this block) it's a good part of the motel in which to stay. Some sound-proofing/slow door-closing mechanism in the entrance would be helpful.

Breakfast was superb (inside) and then one could go outside to the Chuck Wagon and have an individually prepared omelette cooked at the back of the wagon, with ingredients of choice. Best I've ever tasted. There were also mimosas available here free of charge (sparkling wine and orange juice mix) all served in a nice courtyard. The chef and waiters were dressed in wild west gear.

We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: New block, away from main road.

This is probably the Best BW I have ever visited. The entire staff bends over backwards to see that you are treated like family and the service is great! Without question the best breakfast of any hotel. They have added some new rooms and both the old and new are very comfortable. Kudos to Tom, Val & the rest of the folks.

This is a quality motel. It is the best Best Western I have ever stayed. I would highly recommend it. While the motel is a throw back to the 1950s, the renovations and upkeep are superb. We loved our stay.

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling to Yellowstone. I was slightly apprehensive about staying here as I couldnt believe that such a small town had such a great wee motel. But my worries were quashed on arrival and seeing our room.

The grounds of the motel were very tidy and well presented. The girl at the counter was done up in a western fashion which I thought was a bit cheesy but I realise that some people like this kind of thing. She was efficient and extremely helpful. Our room was a bit small but we didnt need a whole lot of space for just one night. We had a fridge but no microwave which wasnt a problem either. The tv though had some really bad reception on some channels but again not a problem as we just found something else to watch for an hour or so. We didnt have the omelette for breakfast, preferring the spread indoors and there was a good selection from porridge & waffles to yoghurt and fresh fruit. We travelled around Wyoming for nearly 3 weeks and in all this time I have to say that the bed in this motel was the best I slept in, not too hard and not too soft, just perfect in fact.

My only real complaint was the shower; please get a new showerhead. The pressure of the shower was fantastic but there was no way to change the actual flow from the showerhead and believe me it was a wee bit painful.

Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat!

The grounds of this motel are very interesting. They have a really nice sitting area with a Chuck Wagon from which they serve breakfast during summer months. Service is great. Very nice and interesting stay.

There is nothing here. But we had drove form denver after long flight so it was a good stop.Room was clean,staff was nice. The room had a strange setup. It was like a 2 room suite. It was alittle tight,as soon as you walked in,there was the bed.Bathroom in the middle of rooms.Bed was comfy.If you have more then 2 people it works.The breakfast was better then usually. Its very small area,but had more then some hotels.
