The Elms Motel is not exactly a good place to stay. If you are accustomed to Hampton Inn's or anything more classy, then you might find this place completely unacceptable. That said, if you are more flexible on the classiness of your accommodations, then you can save a good chunk of money by booking here as opposed to the other... More

Tired and driving thru O'Neill, I spotted the "pets welcome" sign at this motel or "motor court" and pulled in. A vert pleasant hostess let us know there was vacancy and offered to show me the room--I declined and, even tho we normally stay at budget hotel chains when traveling, gave the Elms the benefit of the doubt. I was... More

Dirtiest, filthiest place we have ever been in. Hotel Impossible couldn't even help. First off, very nice folks at office. However...dust, dirt, and mildew everywhere. Carpet so gross, we wore shoes all the time. Flies everywhere. Chairs stained, bedspreads stained, walls and ceiling actually stained. Now for bathroom...smallest ever. Mold and mildew in every corner. Toilet was so disgusting that... More

I occasionally travel to O'Neill for business and have stayed at the Elm Motel approximately 20 nights in the last 2 years. The last time in November 2014. I could stay at other, more expensive motels and still stay under my company daily budget, but the Elms motel is always clean, the beds are comfortable and the owners are friendly,... More

This is one of those nice little motels where your room is quiet, clean and the owners care. Well run and comfy. If you need a night to bed down on the road, this is a much better value than the name brand motels.

Maybe I got a bad room on the wrong night...but...my experience was not ideal. Room floor was filthy. Think they forgot to vacuum. And there was blood spots on the vanity. But the kicker for me was the other guests that night. A lot of young construction dudes carting big coolers into their rooms with a beer in other hand.... More

I have never stayed at the Elm's personally, but as manager of another independently-owned motel in the next community, I hear much feedback. During peak season we refer the majority of our guests to this motel simply because of the feedback we have received from many of our regular guests who have stayed there when we've had no vacancy. The... More

Have stayed at the Elms Motel for several years now during our trek to and from the Sturgis motorcycle rally. The motel has a convenient location, clean and well maintained rooms. The added continental breakfast makes it an even better value. We like the fact you can pull your car/motorcycle right up to the door to unload.
