The room was okay, very thin blankets on the beds. The wifi sucks so much that I am probably using all my data writing this. It works for about 10 minutes when in the lobby but then try going to your room and you loose it. Super annoying especially when you are told there will be wifi. The hot tub...

The staff at the front desk were rude and not helpful. The heater in the room sounded like a jet plane and kicked on every ten minutes because it couldn't keep the room warm. Beds are like boards. Walked a half mile to fitness room to find it locked and required key from front desk. The dog in the room...

Stayed just one night, in the atrium area. Quite, warm room on SD January night. Nice supper at Minervas restaurant in the lobby, and a nice breakfast in the morning. Single, queen room was comfortable and provided a good night's sleep.

Positives: Booked the room through Priceline.com, great deal! The room was clean, and the beds/pillows very comfortable. Nice front-desk personnel, and though we didn't patronize the lounge, we've had decent food and service in previous stays. Wish-list: In-room refrigerator and microwave (did have a coffee maker) and no complimentary breakfast...free coffee was available to guests. Yes, there is a restaurant,...

Had an excellent stay at the Watertown, SD Ramkota Inn. The Ramkota is clean and comfortable and the service is excellent. I really like that there is an excellent bar and restaurant on the property. Check in and check out were quick and easy. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly.

Staff is always friendly and helpful. I enjoy the ability to park for the night, eat and sleep under one roof. The meals are always excellent at the attached Minerva Bar & Restaurant. . Rooms are dated but clean.

I think the cost of the room was waaaay too expensive considering we really stayed here for the swimming pool and it was not in working condition. I also feel the rooms need updating seem very outdated.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn here in Watertown which was an absolute nightmare. This place is a breath of fresh air. Older but very clean, great parking, nice restaurant and good customer service. I prefer this place over the Hampton Inn and I usually love the Hampton Inn but the Best Western is much nicer. Thank you!

The king room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The bed was cozy and the room was quiet. The room was 5 stars but we were disappointed (like most people who stay here) that there was no continental breakfast. The pool was very clean and had the perfect water temperature. Some people might find the decor in the...
