Checked trip advisor before I called and got friendly, experienced owner on the phone. The rate was good, room was clean and ready when I arrived. Quick check in and a quiet night. Enjoyed the minimal continental breakfast next morning and was on my way. Definitely stay here if you want to keep your business local and get your moneys...

Thanks for staying and taking the time to share your experience here. I'm the owner you reference and couldn't be more pleased by your comments about us. Your last sentence says it all: we're proud to be locally owned and operated and take great pleasure in knowing that our customers feel like they're getting their money's worth. A "good" rate,...

We stopped here for one night in late September. I was honestly a little scared when they quoted the price over the phone -- the last time we stayed in a hotel that inexpensive, it wasn't a good experience because of the type of guest that patronized the hotel. However, my concerns were laid to rest when we arrived. The...

Thanks for a kind and eye-opening review. It never occurred to me that my prices are so competitive that potential customers might put the quality of our facility into question. I guess that's the risk that comes with being the best lodging value in the region! We appreciate your calling attention to the fact that we have ultra-competitive rates and...

Older but clean and friendly owner. Total price of $51 including tax can't be beat. Close to Wall Drug and the Badlands. We drove into the Badlands in the evening and saw the largest buffalo herd we have ever seen. Probably 300 head. Went to Wall Drug and had the worlds best donut!

Thank you for staying and commenting here. Our off-season rate is just as competitive as our seasonal rates, which typically are 30%-50% lower than those of our franchised competitors. As an independent, family-run establishment, the Sunshine Inn can pass along substantial savings to our guests, which is why we believe we're the best lodging value in the region. Our facility...

We chose Wall as a stopping point and glad we stayed at the Sunshine Inn. The property is well maintained and reminded me of motels we stayed at traveling to and from St. Petersburg, Florida as a child; small, quaint, clean and friendly. Deanna greeted us as we checked in, providing us an overview of the area. The property is...

Thank you so much for the kind remarks. We appreciate that you stress our excellent location, just a block away from the world famous Wall Drug Store and downtown Wall's many shops and attractions. As you note, they're a short walk down the street, so there's no need to load everybody up in the car and drive around looking for...

Thanks for the succinct and complimentary remarks. We make it a practice to know our customers by name--after all, they're only the most important people on the planet as far as the Sunshine Inn is concerned. Your summation that we're "nice, cozy, totally inexpensive" with a "great little continental breakfast" just about says it all. All we can say is...

The most comfortable bed, I have ever slept in. The staff was the extremely nice, friendly and iwelcoming. The cost was inexpensive. Sunshine Inn is the place to stay in Wall, SD, it usually even worth the drive if your plans are to be any where in the area.

Thank you for staying and making time to share your Sunshine Inn experience here. We feature Sealy Pillowtop beds and couldn't be more pleased at how well-received they've been by our customers. The accolades are gratifying because, after all, a good night's sleep is what we sell! "Friendly, welcoming, extremely nice" are comments we most love to hear, and "the...

Thank you for the kind and enthusiastic words. Plaudits like yours are gratifying--and a challenge we love to meet.

I got ahold of John via email, said I needed 2 rooms for 3 nights near the end of August. My husband and I have stayed at the Sunshine 3 times prior, and this time my brother was coming along.

Thank you for the return visits and for taking the time to share your experiences at the Sunshine Inn here on TripAdvisor. We have many repeat customers who, like you, reinforce our belief that we're the best lodging value in the region. Our prior commitment to a motorcyclist convention a year ago made a third night's stay impossible, but we...

The owner, John ,was very courteous and he has owned this quaint motel since 1977. The room was extremely clean, good size and reasonably priced.
