This motel has excellent access to all of the beautiful Black Hills experiences. It is strategically positioned at the top of beautiful Spearfish Canyon. Our host Gina was extremely friendly and accomodating. She tried very hard to make our stay pleasant. Most of the reviews on Trip Advisor are from several years ago. Outside chairs and a gas grill are...

The room we were in had a Fireplace and it was very cute! Everything was clean other than the remote that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. I had to clean it before wanting to touch it. The AC unit is right next to the bed and was very loud. It also couldn't cool the room to the...

Quiet place, no hassles, easy access to 90. Staff doesn't bother you. Everything provided to keep your bike clean. Bar/food next door but not too close. Grill outside with stores close by. Will go back. Stayed there Aug 2012.

Patty was super nice and helpful! We enjoyed our stay and slept great! It was convenient to town and to the ride through the canyon. It was nice to have a grill to cook on and relax and enjoy the evening. I hope that we are able to stay here again!

Patty has a really nice little motel. It is clean, comfortable on a scenic drive so lots of motorcycles to see. There is a Bar & Grill two doors down (good drinks, ok food) It is away from the noise of the rally but as close as any for riding anywhere. I would stay here again for sure!

The motel is better than a camping cabin at a State Park but not as good as a Super 8. It had a shower, sink, toilet, tv, and small refrigerator which a camping cabin does not. It needed to have soap, shampoo, and rolls of toilet paper provided!. The room also needed to have a desk chair and more electrical...

TERRIBLE experience! While the room seemed quaint and cute when we first got there, the ac window unit was so loud that we couldn't even hear the tv. The place advertised ad having free wifi but we were given no password and after several attempts to contact the owner, I still had not password and no ability to turn in...

We arrived late in the evening, after driving all day from OKC. Needless to say, my friend and I were both exhausted. We were called by the hotel manager earlier in the afternoon, letting us know that the room would be unlocked and the key would be on the table, as she would be unavailable for part of the evening....

This was a terrific place to stay. Just minutes from Spearfish Canyon and close to town. Property was very clean, well maintained, and quiet. The owner (Patty) was very helpful and friendly. She has only owned the property for about 6 months and is remodeling the rooms, they are very nicely decorated. The price is very reasonable. We stayed there...

“Take the rooms below in the summer. Maybe they are not as warm as the top room we had and hopefully a tub that drains well.”

“If you are traveling with the "guys" this motel will probably be okay. However, if the wife is along stay somewhere else!”
