Had 2 rooms reserved WITH confirmation numbers. When we get there we were given 2 completely different rooms. The front desk had no idea what happened, no way to fix it (my rooms were given to someone else) I asked for manager was told there is not one there on weekends. So got my money back and went across the...

I came on the last minute and checked in and am total surprised. The old fixtures in my room make it feel like I'm in such a amazing place. The pool area looks amazing. As I walked around the lobby area . I found some old baseball caps from the military. The bar area looked very large and had quite...

Let's start with the staff targeting certain guests to write a review. Staff (especially the manager) we're rude and crude. The rooms are old and smell of funk. I lasted one night and the next day went to checkout and go elsewhere. The front desk staff would not check me out and apparently only the manager has the authority to...

Doesn't really get better unless you spend a lot more money. Our double queen room was large and conveniently laid out. Desk, table with chairs. Fridge microwave tucked away around the corner. An issue with the heating unit was fixed in less than 15 minutes of mentioning it (replaced). Conveniently located for travel through and shopping. We ask for a...

I was in town for business and knew someone that had stayed there during Sturgis. Not bad, nice staff, didn't feel safe being on the first floor as the windows were equal to the parking lot where men were working non stop. Also, it is pretty easy for anyone to walk in and wander. Rooms were nothing special but at...

Besides the price (very good), we were taken by the fact that the hotel is (and has been) family owned and operated. Felt good to support a non-chain establishment. It was every bit as good, if not better, than many of the hotels we've stayed in on the road. Welcome was warm and efficient. Room was clean, comfortable, nicely appointed,...

This is a nice property near the freeway. It was easy to find and had adequate parking for a small to medium moving van towing a car. I think the lot would have been dicey for a large moving van. The room was nice, comfortable, and quite. Price was good.

Overall this hotel wasn't bad. It seemed a little outdated and a bit like a hotel you'd see in a horror movie. The rooms and halls were very dark with outdated furniture. Small TV in the room. The pool was small and shallow with one waterslide that they didn't really have enough room for. The hottub was super small, it...
