Positive Reviews

Handy location just off the freeway

This motel's location just off highway I-90 reportedly provided a great base for the budget-conscious traveler in town to see Mount Rushmore or experience the two national parks within striking distance. There was also easy access to downtown Rapid City. Guests also appreciated having gas stations, shopping options and eateries in the vicinity.

Cheap and cheerful with remodeled rooms

The fresh decor, wood-effect floors and flat-screen TVs of the remodeled rooms won plenty of admirers. Although the rooms were no frills, they were often described as more than satisfactorily clean and comfortable for a shorter stay. With perks like free coffee and a pets allowed policy, many visitors felt this motel offered fair value for money thanks to its competitive rates. .

Service with a smile

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi access wasn't free

Guests disliked the additional fees for using Wi-Fi at this property. Some of those who used the network claimed it suffered from sluggish speeds and patchy coverage. .

Some cleanliness and maintenance grumbles

Mold in some bathrooms, stained bedding, dirty floors in some rooms, cigarette burns and dusty furniture were among the cleanliness problems reported by some critics. Moreover, there were occasional claims of ineffective pest control measures. Reviewers also called for improved maintenance in order to tackle issues like slow-draining water, occasional interruptions to the hot water supply, unreliable air-conditioning and missing light bulbs. .

Annoying noises and smells reported

Some rooms were exposed to traffic noise from the freeway, which was a nuisance for light sleepers. However, rooms facing away from the road were reportedly quieter. There were also reports of damp odors or pet smells.
