I stayed here based on the tripadvisor reviews, and I probably wouldn't have even known to look for it, since it is on the main street, by Wall Drug, rather than near the interstate exits. What a nice stay! While the furnishings and such are not new, it is probably the CLEANEST motel I have ever stayed in! I've noticed...

Thank you for checking us out after reading about the Sunshine Inn on TripAdvisor. We're extremely proud of the reviews that we get here and couldn't be more delighted that travelers like you make the effort to find us on Main Street in downtown Wall. As we're just a block away from the world-famous Wall Drug Store and other attractions,...

The government shutdown altered our plans to spend two nights, as Badlands Park was not open for hiking. The owners let us out of the second night's reservation, no problem. Hotel very clean and just what we needed. Expected it to be smaller and more dated by some of the reviews. Bathroom had an adequately sized vanity for a woman...

Thanks for staying at the Sunshine Inn and providing TripAdvisor.com readers with such a nice recap of your experiences here. On your first point, multiple night visitors often change plans on arrival, either extending or shortening their stays. We cheerfully accommodate those alterations and NEVER charge for a cancellation. Too many unexpected occurrences can alter plans and we see no...

Very nice "mom and pop" hotel. Clean, comfortable. Very friendly. Great price during offseason. Would stay at this hotel again. Great location in Wall, near Wall Drug, witch is very unique. Not anything fancy but this hotel is a great value for anyone.

Thanks. Writing as the "pop" of this "mom and pop" hotel, I appreciate you staying at the Sunshine Inn and your succinct commentary about your experience here. "Clean, comfortable. Very Friendly. Great price during offseason," these are the words that we strive to hear from our guests. Oh, and by the way, our "in-season" prices are also very moderate, and...

Having read all the outstanding reviews for this motel, we were a bit disappointed. Definitely agree that it was clean, quiet, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, lots of channels on tv, coffee and small rolls in office in morning, a heater in the bathroom (which many more expensive places omit), and does have Wi-fi. It was lacking a clock,...

Thank you for staying at the Sunshine Inn and taking the time to write what seems to be an overall pretty good review of your experience.

We stopped on Sept. 2, 2013. I have travelled the road as a salesman for over 35 years and this is one of the best motel. The building and design are old, but the room is clean, the bed was firm, all the lights and TV worked, the shower will drown you in nice warm water and it is quiet...

friendlysdinnkeeper, Owner at Sunshine Inn, responded to this review

Thanks for staying and for the kind words. Calling the Sunshine Inn one of the best motels you've stayed in after 35 years on the road is a compliment that we accept with pride and commitment to maintaining the standards you so admire. Yes, this is an older property, built around 1980, but we scrupulously maintain it in tip top...

We would have picked a chain hotel except that reviews here steered us to the Sunshine Inn. We were very happy with the price, the large comfortable room, its cleanliness, and the friendliness of the owner. A very happy find -- we'd stay again without hesitation.

Thanks so much for staying at the Sunshine Inn and posting your "terrific" review here. We have always stressed value at our facility and welcome comparisons between us and the many franchised properties nearby.

My Mother and I have enjoyed staying at the Sunshine in each time we come to Wall. We have been coming every summer for quite a few years. It is so nice when people remember you!

Thanks for your kind remarks. Wish I could have been there personally to greet you and your charming mother, but look forward to doing so again in the future. That you choose to return on a regular basis is the kind of endorsement that we at the Sunshine Inn most appreciate. "Friendly, clean, and welcoming" are the kinds of adjectives...

My wife and I (plus 2 dogs) travel between Virginia and Montana twice a year every year. South Dakota is a regular stop, but we have avoided Wall because it is . . . well, all about Wall Drugs.

Having you stay at the Sunshine Inn was a happy circumstance indeed. Thank you so much for the kind words and for stressing our most important asset--"Value"--in your heading. That we're "scrupulously clean" and "well maintained" are attributes that come with a fair amount of hard work and a commitment to offering our customers the great night's rest that they...

Once again, I'm so glad we checked with tripadvisor when looking for a room in Wall, SD. The reviews were right... the Sunshine Inn is a great place to spend the evening. We arrived late, having ridden the Badlands loop with the full moon. (On a side note, all motorcycle enthusiasts should put that on their bucket list.) The location...

Thank you for staying at the Sunshine Inn and commenting here about your experience.

I've experienced the same nighttime adventure in the park and agree that it is an amazing experience. Day or...

While the property itself is nothing special--an older motor hotel--the attention paid to each guest by the owner and his wife make the stay here more than worthwhile. The owner helped us get our motorcycle trailer and car parked after our late arrival, and remembered us by name the next morning. The internet repeater system was not working the night...

Thank you for staying at the Sunshine Inn and sharing your remarks here. We most certainly appreciate you pointing out the fact that personal attention is an important component of our service.
