We stayed five nights. It was not crowded, the season was coming to a close. The non-smoking room was really nice, with a fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The A/C worked great. We had good parking. There is a good restaurant at the other side of the parking lot. It was a steal. Wish I could have played the croquet but ran out of time.

We stayed in the detached building. There were smoking rooms that people wanted too. We weren't in CA any more!

Room Tip: You need to say if you want smoking or non-smoking in the comment section when you book.

It was clean, good sized room with the queen beds.
The free breakfast was just toast, coffee and muffins but that's okay because the rate was a good price. The lady manager was very nice.
Stayed three nights and enjoyed them all. Their restaurant next door serves a delicious steak at a cheap price.
Would stay here again.

We book a 7 night stay and upon checking in the rate was more than given over the phone. The room was very small and dark. There was no where to sit any items such as toothpaste in the very small bathroom and the bathroom did nto have a exhaust fan. After showering I opened the window to clear the room of fog and bees invaded the room. The TV was broke, the internet was very weak, the dead bolt on the door did not work and the bed was a full not a queen as we had requested. We checked out after one night at which time they refused to refund the rest of the charges for the nights we did not stay so I had to dispute them with my CC company.

We stayed 4 nights at the Dakota Cowboy. We had excellent service. The room was impecably cleaned each day. The staff was very helpful and responsive. They apologized for the remodeling at the lobby but that was not a problem at all. The breakfast was adequate for our needs. It really is Americas Best Value. We would stay there again when we return.

For the price, this was a great place to stay. They have two buildings - we stayed in the Dakota Inn rather than the Americas Best Value section. It was clean and met all our needs with good Internet service, refrigerator & microwave (we had requested this at booking), comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was minimal (juice, coffee, milk, cereal, mini boxed donuts & toast). Pool was empty (cold outside when we were there).

Room Tip: Dakota Inn building behind office.

My family and I went on a weekend trip to see Mt. Rushmore. The motel was very clean and maintained throughout, the staff was very friendly. Mt. Rushmore was about 20 minutes or so away and Crazy Horse just 5 minutes. Th motel was centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere.
