I stay here every time I pass through town. It's quiet clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The rates here are cheaper than other hotels as well. Very easy to find on the north side of exit 175 on I-90.

Staff and owner were great, the place was very clean, quiet and well maintained. Best nights sleep of the trip. Basic breakfast included. No restaurant next door, but there are just a bit down the interstate. The value is in the hotel itself and we had a great stay for a great price!

We were traveling most of the day at it had gotten late. We wanted a clean quiet room to get some rest and just travel on the next morning. We arrived about midnight and we wanted a fist floor room. The only room they had was 2 doubles so we made that work for us. Breakfast is very limited, but...

My wife and I were crossing US 90 on the way to Mt Rushmore. The rooms were very clean and everyting worked. The room had a refrigerator and microwave.

We just needed a quick place to stay. I was very impressed with the condition of the property and the overall cleanliness of the room. It looks like they have been working to update things. The bathroom fixtures were new. I was particularly impressed with the staff.

Nice place to stay. The staff were very friendly and we have no complaints. The room was clean as was the shower. After s good night sleep and a good breakfast we were on our way again. Would definitely recommend this place for a place to rest on your travels.

The manager at this location was outstanding. He offered directions, a map, and suggestions for various type of restaurants. The entire process from sign-in until sign-out was pleasant and the manager was genuinely concerned about making your stay a pleasant one. His attitude makes this place an "A++" in my books. Breakfast was available and the room was nice.The low...

I ended up staying on Sunday night due to my vehicle breaking down. The room was clean and adequate. The manager was very helpful in locating a local repair shop that was able to fix my vehicle the next day. As a woman traveling alone, I was very grateful.

Hotel isn't particularly new or extremely well kept. You can tell what is there has been there forever and they try to keep it looking nice. That said this hotel is in need of renovation. Much of it is masked so you won't notice from a distance but you will eventually notice that the walls have cracks and the carpet...

Stayed in 137. Room was absolutely disgusting. Carpets are awful. Smells like a combination of old smoke, stale beer, mold and dirty feet. Wall paper treatments literally peeling off of the wall. Cob webs in every nook and cranny. TV from 1973 buzzed so loudly that you couldn't even watch tv. The worst case of black mold inside the AC...
