The room and common areas were very clean. There was a hockey team there that were a little loud but they calmed down early and the hotel was not responsible. The breakfast was great and there was a large variety. The bed was a little soft for me but my husband loved it. Good pillows!!

Arrived to find that the pool and hot tub were closed due to renovations. We were told we could use the pool and hot tub next door. Didn't feel like walking across one parking lot to another, and back in wet suits. We checked in, had a room on the second floor which was fine, since they have an elevator.... More

This was a great choice for us. We needed a place for the night on our way to the Black Hills. We found this on-line as we were travelling. The hotel had good reviews and an affordable rate. We were not disappointed!
