We stopped overnight on our way out West. It is a quaint hotel. The rooms are clean, owner was friendly. The beds were not the most comfortable but they worked. The shower worked and was clean. It is right across street from gas station and diner so easy to grab gas and ice.

We are driving home after a winter camping trip to Nova Scotia. It's too cold to camp now (single digits plus wind chill). We need a place to plug in an engine heater for our diesel van so we are limited to (mostly older) motels where we can park right in front of the room. Dakota Winds was a great...

Friendly staff. Parking at your door. The room could use a bit of updating, the bed really needs a new mattress....saggy. I thought it was a bit on the pricey side...$90.00 for 2 queen beds... no breakfast of any kind and no coffee.

The billboard on the side of I90W said it all. Very glad I saw it. I was heading to Rapid City but with all the storms I went through I am very glad I stopped!. Called them and owner let Mr know which room was open and to make myself at home. He was on his way! The room reminds...

Thank you Emily! There were no rooms available anywhere for 100 miles. This place is right off of 1-90 for easy access. I called and Emily hooked us up with a room and a roll away bed after hours. Room was clean, comfortable and cheap.

But what we got was a petting zoo considering all the flies! Fly swatters are provided. The off-white stucco that falls as you swat the flies on the ceiling doesn't match the bedspreads. Last and least the room had a stale cheap odor. Hotel accommodations are slim pickings in that part of the country. If I were you I'd consider...

I don't think I've ever seen a motel room this clean! It is not new, but someone has taken great care to keep it well maintained. The carpet was clean with no stains, the towels were great, bathroom sparkling clean. There was no dust anywhere to be found! There were no funky smells and the room was nice and quiet....

We stayed on july 15 ands was a bit hesitant as it is a mom and pop style motel, but was very surprised when we looked at a room and they are very clean and modern. The owners are super nice and we will definitely stay again if passing through the area, also has very reasonable rates in comparison to...

Clean and great location next to I90. Isn't fancy just quiet and cozy, perfect for an over night stay or a couple of nights. The staff was extremly pleasant. Try eating at the back 40, just a block away.

The front desk clerk was considerate and placed us at the very end of the row of rooms so that it would be quiet for us. This is definitely not a fancy place, but it met our needs just fine, as part of our road trip out west. Lots of flies outside our room, though, but they had a fly...
