This is a nice location close to several of the attractions in Rapid City and the Black Hills of South Dakota. There are eating places within walking distance from the motel. We did stay for the Buffalo roundup so was close to where we left for our tour.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend. It was perfect for us. Inexpensive, very clean, and we were very excited to have a mini kitchen with a microwave and refrigerator!! They had coffee and breakfast in the morning and the staff was super nice and helpful with places to go in Rapid City. Great place for...

Stayed on the second floor and even though we were located on a busier road (central location for visiting all the best sights) it was surprisingly quiet. Room was exceptionally clean and the entire staff was pleasant and went above and beyond, even brought extra towels to our room (we both use more than our fair share) when requested. It...

When we checked in we were put into a room that was once a smoking room. Asked to switch which they did generously. When we got into another room we noticed the carpet was very dirty. Didn't even take off my shoes. Frig didn't work. The light above the night stand wasn't plugged in so when I went to plug...

Best price in the area; as we were going to be there for less than 8 hours, all we cared about was that the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Room was clean enough and beds were great. The place is in need of some serious upgrading, but you can tell that they care and they are trying! Have...

The room we reserved did not lock. We then went to the office and exchanged the room for a suite, which had a kitchen, dining area, and living room area. The bed had several hairs that were not ours and the room was very dusty. The wall also had a dead bug smudged onto it. The air conditioner was very...

Clean and quiet. Good location close to all attractions. Just needed a place to sleep and for $57 per night it was just fine. Bathroom could use some TLC and updating. Mini fridge in room was handy. And grab and go breakfast was nice since we didnt expect it. But no pets policy wasn't being adhered to since the man...

My husband and I travel to race our sprint car at the race track. We spent one night 7/22. Checked in and out no problems. A few days later my husband noticed an additional charge of 220.00 for our room. My husband spoke to management which took a few days back and forth and management claimed we had a dog...
