My dealings with the owners have always been great. They have attention to detail and the property is in great condition, which, unfortuantely, is not always the case with a hotel in a small town in rural South Dakota. I would stay there any time.
Thank John B

This is a small town and if you want to stay in Phillip you don't have a lot of choices. The place has a smell. Maybe mold, but covered up with tons of Fabreeze or something. The beds are some kind of foam but they were ok to sleep in. The price they charged us was more than the prices being quoted in the other reviews. It was ok, for a small town, but would have been priced far less for the quality if they had some competition.

This was a really interesting experience. The rooms are outdated and remind me of a dorm room. The oddest part was the person who worked there who, I think, both checked us in and checked us out, which means he either works multiple shift or basically lives there. He had a bit of an attitude, not towards us or the customer, but towards his employer. He told us he basically runs the place and has an attitude like he is better than what he is doing, better than the hotel, its owner, and probably the small town he is in. I would guess if you feels this way he is right. He was very nice to us and anticipated our needs. He saw we walked in with some takeout and asked if we needed forks, napkins, and plates. When I came down to ask for more pillows and an extra sheet he provided us with them, seemingly happy to do so but he seems rundown and the manor of his politeness may come of cold to some. Over all though this hotel seems clean but the accommodations are sparse. All the hotels in Wall, where we ate, where very pricey and mostly booked so we opted to save a few bucks. If we had to do more than just sleep it would have been a hard place to spend our time.

Nice lady at reception. Appeared to be doing everything in the motel. Owner didn't respond to our greeting. (Perhaps he was hard of hearing and not rude or indifferent.) Room was dirty. No microwave. No coffee pot. Windows were inoperable. Venetian blinds, likewise. Curtain rail balanced on the valance. Fell off when touched.No bathrobe hook in bathroom. No safety strips or non slip mat for bath tub. No safety rail for elderly guests.

I have stayed at Motel West and the staff are friendly and courteous. These people will go out of there way to make your stay comfortable. My bed was extremely comfortable and I see in a review that someone had an uncomfortable bed. You can wake staff at anytime for your needs, but I'm sure the bed was replaced or fixed if it was as bad as the previous review stated. Microwave and coffee pot are in the commons area, but you do have a fridge in your room which I found nice to have. This is a simple, clean and nice place for my family to stay and we will again in the future. Owners are great people and will help you with any questions or needs you may have.
