Upon arriving at this location, we thought the outside looked sketchy. The pool was not in service and the grounds looked a little off. The young lady at the front desk was not personable at all and seemed to not like her job. When we got in our room, we were surprised because it looked much better than the exterior... More

We made the reservation on the road and as we drove up to the motel, I was leery about the quality of the place. But to our surprise the room was very nice, very clean. The owners must have just remodeled the rooms. The outside could use some updating. The bed was very comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was nice.... More

Due to rain and lack of choices, we had to stop in Kadoka for the night. Ok, so this is an older roadside type motel and it lacks the modern conveniences. The biggest problem were flies. They have fly traps all along the outside doorways, but they were still a problem. I did get a good night sleep and that's... More

The building is a little dated. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean. Standard continental breakfast but area was clean an well stocked which was an accomplishment since the place was full. Great place to stop over for the night.

Room was typical of older motel on the Freeway - decor had seen better days but it was clean, breakfast was cereal and packaged stuff. Attitude of desk clerk was a bit unpleasant.

It was late and we needed a room. We turned off the freeway and the rate was lower on this than the one next door but still think they over charge.

In short, what I can say is this hotel definitely hikes its prices from being one of the only motel/hotels in the area. Unfortunately, due to Sturgis Bike Rally, we were left with little options since everything was booked up for miles. This was the only place that had rooms available with in 50 miles. We ended up paying $200... More

We stayed here on the 2nd night of a 12 day motorcycle trip. This is an older hotel and the rooms are small (we had 4 adults in our room and it was tight). However, the room was very clean.

We stopped in during bike week, and they had a room! Rooms were pretty old fashioned, but very clean. I have to say these were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in in a hotel! Pool looked clean as well, but we didn't try it out. It's like an oasis in the middle of the desert!
