Excellent value! Helpful and friendly staff and quiet!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close by I-90 for just a over-night stay"
For just an overnight this is ok, but not for a longer stay. Close to I-90. Breakfast was a joke, just some bread and juice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to interstate but needs improvement!"
The king size bed had only 2 pillows and they were very hard foam, very uncomfortable. The air conditioner made a very bad noise all night. Didn't get any rest and when you pay that much for a room and the accommodations were very uncomfortable. They also didn't state how to connect to the wi-fi. The room was very clean so the staff was efficient. The […] accommodations the cheap stuff needs an upgrade! There needs to be at least 4 pillows of different softness as everyone is different.

Response by Howard Johnson Inn-Spearfish Thank you for reviewing our hotel, and for noticing the good work out housekeepers do. I certainly hope you informed the front desk of the issues you encountered, as we cannot fix things if we don't know there is a problem. The reason we do not state how to connect to the wi-fi is because it is "open", so there is no password for it. We appreciate your input on the pillows, and we will take that into consideration as we are always seeking ways to improve.
Hotel was fine for a stop-over on our way through. Indoor pool gives hotel a muggy feel. But it was a hot day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
As we entered the hotel to check in the lobby smelled like cigarette smoke and being I'm allergic to smoke I started to react to it. We were assured the rooms were non smoking and our room did smell OK. Our door passcards didn't work - so we had to go back to the front desk to get them programmed. To enter our room we walked through the swimming pool […] area which was so hot, you could hardly breathe. The air conditioners in the rooms around the pool were vented out into the pool area therefore making it very hot. It would of been enjoyable to take a cool dip in the pool but with the air so hot you couldn't stand to be in this room. Our living room was cool but the bedroom was not. There was a filthy fan on the floor that worked on one speed to help move the air back to the bedroom. We didn't know until our third morning at the hotel that complimentary breakfast was served. I guess we should of asked..but usually we are told by the desk clerk when you check in. For the money it was a very outdated hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a two night stay to help our son move to his new apartment. Hotel was clean and service was great for the room itself. Only one small complaint was the breakfast bar. Good choice of foods (had they been supplied like they should have been, pre made waffles, pancakes, plus scrambled eggs (which where powdered eggs that tasted bad) and sausage […] links, which both days had one link in the warmer (there where 4 of us) and about a 1/2 cup milk left in the gallon jug,(again to feed 4 of us plus several other travelers) . The gal came into the breakfast room about three times and NEVER refilled anything (there were about 7 people in the dining area) We even asked if there was more milk and she replied that she would check and never returned with anything. Kinda made our cereal fun to eat with NO milk. ha. So don't expect anything special. The did have fresh fruit also, which was empty. Was NOT impressed. We ate at 8am on day one and 9am on day two.

"Great 4 a budget if you're not needing good sleep"
We got the two queen suite. Plenty of room for our stay, we were there 3 nights. The beds were old & well used. One tv remote didn't work. The bathroom was tiny. The fold out bed was better as a couch. The mattress was near nonexistent. The ac controls were so old school. Took me an hour to find it. The microwave didn't work. The fridge had broken pieces, […] but did the job. Parking was excellent! Breakfast was great! Staff was awesome! Pools were perfect! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Generous with towels and breakfast food"
Very generous with their pool side towels and breakfast items. The kids loved it all!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value hotel"
This is a very basic but clean and comfortable place to stay. We were here for a ski trip and needed a place to crash at the end of the day. For the price which includes a decent breakfast, I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Comfortable Hotel"
We were very pleased with the quality of the room and the breakfast service at the hotel. Wifi connectivity was a little sketchy, but overall we were very happy and will certainly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to our destination and many things to see!"
We combined a business/leisure family trip to Harding County and stayed in Spearfish for 3 nights. We couldn't have been treated any better and were VERY pleased with our accomodations. We had 3 rooms each night and we would highly recommend it to everyone! Thanks!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceptional Management and Staff"
Everything was exceptional especially the Management and Staff. We were there for 9 days and we had two rooms. Anything we needed the staff happily helped us with a smile. All areas were kept clean and the pool and spa were nice. A couple times we ask if the pool water could be warmer and the staff turned to heat up for us. We enjoyed our stay and would […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly Management and excellent Staff"
Our stay was very enjoyable. We were treated very well. The staff went out of their way to please us, the service was excellent. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The Hotel was located off Route 90, and it was easy on and off and easy to get to shopping. We had two rooms and 5 adults and 4 children. The pool and spa was very nice. Pool could […] have been warmer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was very accommodating to our group of 6 Rates were reasonableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only negative thing about this hotel was the pool/spa area. It appeared that it it was enclosed after the hotel was originally build and the ventilation was not very good. You had to walk through it to access your room and it was extremely warm and humid. Other than that everything else was great. The staff was very nice! Location was great. Breakfast […] was expected.

"Go To The Ho Jo!"
WiFi Was Not Available During The Evening Portion of The Visit - Small Inconvenience. Hotel Is In A Good Location - Close To Highway & Downtown Spearfish.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was clean easy to find near Deadwood with affordable rates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is an older hotel but the staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay. The price was cheap so you get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for a decent price"
Excellent location. We were in SD for the car show in Deadwood so this was a great central location for both the car show and sightseeing for the entire area - Devil's Tower, Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore etc. We had a non-smoking room with no lingering smoke smell which was very nice. And Scott at the front desk in the morning is a delightful man. He […] kept the breakfast stocked and ready and always had directions and suggestions for the area. He's a keeper!

"Great family hotel"
We loved our stay here! A great bargain, clean rooms, and a welcoming, friendly staff. We definitely would stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
After staying at several other hotels, we were pleasantly suprised with the cleanliness of the Howard Johnson.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice breakfast and friendly staff"
Our room was clean but run down with part of the wall paper border torn off of the wall. The bedspread had a stain on it that looked like grease. There wasn't a refg. or mic in our room just a coffee pot. They did serve a nice breakfast variety.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad, but nothing to write home about"
When we arrived at our hotel room, we opened the door to a room that was between 80 and 90 degrees. The AC had obviously not been on for at least a day or two - it was very stuffy in addition to being hot. The AC unit was in the front room of the Suite, there was no AC in the bedroom. We turned on the AC about 5pm, and it didn't get cool enough in […] the bedroom until about 3 am. It would have been nice if the staff had turned on a bit of cool air starting at check in time (3PM) or sooner. I understand that Howard Johnson is trying to save money and be "green" but I'm pretty sure they lost all those savings with our AC running on high for 12 hours straight trying to catch up. Wireless signal was very weak and couldn't get any signal in the bedroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

for the money a good dealGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent value for the money"
Friendly staff, clean hotel. Pool was very cold but the spa was nice. The complimentary breakfast was decent. Some parts of our dbl queen room had been updated, while others were dated. Only drawback was the noise level from hallway and adjacent rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Upon arrival our hospitality attendant, Tyler was incredibly efficient and helpful. Unfortunately, a lack of communication from within made his job much harder. We walked into a room that not only the toilet and tub had been used, but the tub had a large discolored patch and the room did NOT have a microwave or fridge as advertised. Tyler was quick […] to move us to an alternate room. Unfortuantely, not only was it on the first floor BUT the laundry was right across from our room and was NOISY NOISY NOISY. The ONLY ice was located down by the pool....inconvenient and unthoughtful. The eggs provided with the continental breakfast were powdered...YUK!!!!! The fridge and microwave both tried to fall off their perch every time we used them. The couch had undistinguishable stains on it and was extremely uncomfortable. There was no phone book or writing paper in the room along with suffering from an apparent shortage of washcloths, coffee condiments and overall comfort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad, good breakfast choices"
Staff was Excellent!! Our room was ok. It was one of the older ones. They are in the process of renovating all the rooms. I think the newer ones are much nicer. The hot tub was very dirty, however. I don't think anyone cleaned it the entire time we stayed there in 3 days. There was grime collected in each of the corners, so we skipped the hot tub/pool […] experience. The temperature of the pool was so cool that we didn't swim in that either. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and great place to stay."
The hotel was well kept and clean. The staff were very helpful and did a great job. Would definately recommend it for your stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
They went above and beyond to help us during our stay. Great service, great room, great breakfast!Genuine Expedia guest review
The continental breakfast would have been more useful if it stayed up until 10:00 AM, and I would have liked yogurt on the menu. We came for a wedding, and the site served us well. We enjoyed the pool. The hotel staff was polite, but they did not appear knowledgible about the area or volunteering of information.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
This hotel stay was better than we expected. Our room had all new furnishings, carpet and paint. I'm mega OCD and I actually walked barefoot in our room because it was so clean! The only compaint I would have, the bed was really firm which my husband loved. Breakfast was good and the girl who greeted us when we arrived was super friendly! Not to mention, […] it was easy enough for anyone to find! I would stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel met my expectations. The rooms were clean, comfortable and neat.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was comfortable and clean. The pool and spa were both filthy and stunk of clorine. This is a non smoking Hotel which is nice, however, the guests are allowed to smoke right outside the exit doors and you must walk through their smoke. The website suggests a breakfast restaurant is attached to the hotel, it is in fact a pizza restaurant. The […] complimentary breakfast is not worth eating. The food did not taste right. For the price, I feel I got what I paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"HoJo Spearfish, SD Under Remodeling"
We were in the old section that definitely needed a remodel. One half of our wing was under remodel so by summer it should be better. We were to have a mini-fridge and a microwave. One room had neither and one had only a fridge. Employees were nice and had a better than average breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very worn hotel. Beds were flat. Pool was cold."
This hotel had hard worn out beds. The pool was cold and there was construction by the pool going on. The milk was sour in the cooler for breakfast and the lady had to go get more milk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Howard-Johnson Spearfish, SD"
On first impression room was clean except when you looked in the bathtub, dirty ring around tub thankfully took showers on bathmat. Soundproofing is not the best so can hear neighbors Breakfast was very good probably one of the best in any place we stayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great central location for Stugis Ralley. Spearfish Canyon is right around the corner, right off the freeway to any where. Nice to have a stay-open-late convenience store, kmart, walmart for anything you need, and restaurants on other side of exit. Not the most glamorous hotel and and bedding and mattresses were fair but for WHY we were there, to ride […] and play, it served a purpose for sleep and shower. We had space to put a roll-a-way bed in the room. No cover for the bikes but felt they were secure. free wi-fi and breakfast was a perk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnsons/Spearfish S.Dak."
There were no current reviews of this hotel when we booked it. It has changed ownership and we were pleasantly surprised by the changes being made. It was clean; the staff very friendly; and all in all it was a nice place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
At check in, staff was great & friendly, however check-out took almost an hour waiting for the lady to get one person in front of us squared away, it was kind of a bummer! Overall, really nice hotel though. Clean, & nice placeGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were among the best we have encountered in our travels. Very friendly and professional. The hotel was a jumble of spaces and hallways. Seemed liked the place had been remodeled numerous times, following no particular plan. Furnishings were old, miss-matched and in various stages of disrepair.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not bad for price"
nice and as clean as it could be. Needs updating badly, really 80's decor. friendly staff located close to some restaurants and Wal-mart.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Stayed over night. Friendly staff, and Pizza Ranch in the same building. Very good locations to shoppingcenters and main road. Clean room, not very fancy, but god beds.
