Nice hotel. Clean. Easy to find. Friendly staff with a big smile and a very welcoming attitude. We mentioned that we read the reviews about the train every 30 minutes-it is true there is a train almost every 30 minutes-and the clerk put us at the other end of the hotel to help as much as possible with the noise....

Very nice and clean. We were in town for a wedding. The family lived very close. Be aware the train goes by every 20 minutes or so. Hard to sleep through the train horn but the room is very nice. Hopefully in a remodel they can soundproof more.

I think this is our 9th year staying here on our way to Sturgis. The hotel is clean, the rooms are good. As all the other people have said there are trains all night long. Actually this is one of the reasons we like it. The breakfast is a little light mostly cold items. The staff is awesome. Can't wait...

Really nice clean rooms and friendly service. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was very basic but still good. Also good food in the restaurant next door. If you don't like trains don't stay here. If you do then it's a great spot as a freight train runs past every 15-20 mins.

Rooms were nice. Service was good. There is a train that goes through, right across the street every 30 minutes day and NIGHT !!! Honks its horn every time!!! If you are a light sleeper you WILL NOT get any rest.

Our tour group spent 2 nights here. The hotel is about 20 years old but is well maintained. We had 2 double beds, table, 2 chairs, tv with Dish, free WiFi. The hotel was quite full because of our group and the high school rodeo which was going on. When we first went to leave our room, the door would...
