2/10 Poor

This place is very outdated and smells like urine. How so many people have rated it as fabulous is beyond me. It’s gross. I’m very disappointed that steered me wrong with this on.

6/10 Good

I have very mixed feelings about our stay The staff were accommodating and eager to please. However the rooms are very small . Ours was 9’x11’ approximately with a queen bed in the room as well as a dresser small refrigerator, microwave and tv. The bathroom was very narrow and cramped. It was just too small. I chose the motel because it was pet friendly and was rated fabulous on past reviews and because they could accommodate our three night stay and they were economically priced. So I guess for the money it wasn’t the worst deal, but it was no way near “fabulous “.

8/10 Very Good

Quaint, quirky, and cozy 😊
If you want a modern place to stay with all of the comforts and amenities that you can think of, this place is NOT for you. BuT, if you can appreciate a cozy, quaint, retro, and quirky little peace of history you will adore this little motel. Walking distance to a sweet little town and all of its amenities, short drive to Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore, as well as several other towns. Clean and private room, Comfy bed, clean bathroom. However, there are some cons: I’m a little bit of a clean freak, I can admit. So the old carpet that has… a bit of texture.. grossed me out. I wore sandals the whole time inside. And I am almost 6 ft tall, the shower was definitely built for a smaller person lol but I made due. All things considered, we would stay again if we ever made our way out there. 😊
