We were stranded after our car broke down and at our wit's end. These folks were so kind, so helpful, and made sure we had anything we needed. I really appreciated the value for the price. It is not a chain or a franchise from what I could tell, but actually owned locally. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness...

Not sure the reason, but we ended up in an out building that had a room that sure did not fit the description of previous reviews and pictures on line. Room faced the traffic of highway which could be heard but we could drown out with sound of AC/heater. Place obviously had rooms available in main building. Maybe we got...

The room was fairly clean. The beds could definitely be replaced. The one I slept on, you could tell was really old..it creaked when you moved. They are really low. The bed skirt had what looked like blood on it. In the morning there was no hot water, so we couldn't even take showers. We let the front desk know,...

Thanks so much for your review about your stay! We called a local plumbing business and they were able to quickly remedy the hot water situation later that afternoon (a freak deal), but I'm very sorry it affected your stay! If you contact me directly at the front desk I will gladly offer a discount on your stay. I'm pleased...

I prefer to support independent establishments and this place fit the bill perfectly. Found it by chance right off the highway. Friendly and helpful staff. Decent clean room. Nice quiet night's rest got me ready for the next day's drive.

Very nice staff and room. They have a hot tub and sauna as well! Good central location next to gas stations and restaurants, walking distance actually. The room was clean and bed was comfy. The breakfast in the morning was pretty decent also. Don't forget to visit the Corn Palace in town if your stay here! I'd most definitely stay...

My husband and I got the room on short notice based on Trip Advisor reviews due to very long, tiring drive to Mitchell for a quick business deal. The lady at the counter was nice and helpful, and since we didn't check in until about 4 a.m. was willing to let us check out at noon rather than 11. The...

For an older motel and some new remodeling done, it was nice. Front desk people were very friendly and helpful. The people upstairs were very noisy late into the night. But I would stay here again. Clean rooms.

This is one of the best hotels I have been to. The owner Matt was so nice and gave me a great deal on a room for 5 nights. The whole staff treated us like royalty. I highly recommend this place! I will always stay here when passing through.
