Do Not stay here! My 16 year old found drugs and needles under the mattress!! We left immediately. Still dealing with Orbitz trying to get our money back. The place was old, dirty looking and obviously unsafe!

Highly recommend for anyone needing a stay while traveling across SD. Very clean and cheap. Nice amenities.

Cheap and clean pool was closed .......quiet at night

The place smells terrible. You cant turn on water in bathrooms because the smell that comes out of there is vert bad. Bring yoyr own blanket because the one they have so thin, its unbelievable.

The hotel provided breakfast and tried to keep everything socially distanced, which was nice. But our room wasn’t very clean and one of the beds had children’s stickers in it when we pulled the sheets back to go to bed.

The ice machine was broken. The towels were very yellow. Yuck!

I have traveled all over. This is a very clean and basic traveler hotel and doesn't have that ragged feel that hotels priced like this, right off the interstate have. Reminds me of traveling in Europe or Asia---efficient and affordable.

My room was around 4 rooms removed from the swimming pool, yet there was a distinct mugginess to the carpet in the room, but most disturbing was the smell of chlorine from the pool that nearly asphyxiated me. I woke up an hour into my sleep virtually choking. Fortunately the window opened and had a screen on it, which allowed me to get at least a minimal amount of sleep for the night. Overpriced for that kind of experience. Avoid if you can, but that can be difficult on this highway in South Dakota.

We were on our way home from a Mayo Clinic visit and spent a night here. Friendly staff, clean accommodations, nice pool. Fit the description and we were very pleased.

Great Location by interstate,restaurants, and gas stations.

Smoke alarms hanging by wires, old hideous and filthy carpet, old filthy bathroom. We cancelled and left immediately.

We had a quiet rest. There were omelets for breakfast. The internet was slow but in the room where we had breakfast the internet was working good. We stayed there because we are traveling to Rapid City. We are going to stay again in this hotel.

Since the hotel says welcome hunters. I would recommend a bird cleaning station and a boot cleaner.

Very disappointed. The room and amenities were very out dated. Breakfast did not look appetizing at all, and we chose to go elsewhere. Not a good deal at all. Priced way too high for what we got. No more stays with this chain for us.

We did not get the rooms that we had specified for

Easy to find, clean room, good breakfast choices, slept well

Loved going down to the river and walking with the kids and taking pictures. The pool was a favorite of the kids, though it was a little small. The breakfast was good. The room we had was very large with 3 comfortable beds. Would definitely stay again if we were passing through.

Overnight stay while traveling. Check-in was handled efficiently and desk person explained amenities thoroughly. Desk person was helpful, if not enthusiastic. Staff I encountered seemed a little resigned/overwhelmed. Room was fine, seemed clean enough, and quiet, except the A/C was pretty vocal when it started up, but quiet once it got going. TV was old, remote didn't work. Desk person changed batteries, but no joy, so I just used the buttons for the rest of the evening. Beds are firm, run-of-the-mill hotel beds, so may not be to the liking of those who like pillow top mattresses and so on. Pool looked ok but didn't use. Hot tub was dirty, with a ring. Floor slick like it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in a while. The pool rooms needs some attention. Vending machines were dated and unattractive. Dollar changers I tried were nonfunctional. No card readers or changers that accepted more than a one dollar bill. Breakfast just ok. Breakfast space cramped, not much at all for hot items. Oatmeal and frozen toaster french toast. Cereal and toast was the order of the day. Exterior was clean and looked nice. Interior needs some TLC. Door at the end of the room corridor unsecured, so make sure your room door is locked up.
