The first room we walked into smelled like sewer backed up. They gave us another room that smelled the same way. I wanted to get money back but couldn't so we went and brought cans of air freshener and sprayed all the 3 cans in the 3nights there. TV was old and not many channels, internet was not always working...

The A/C didn't work. I went down three times to tell them. They came up and checked it each time. The manager said, "Well, it's supposed to cool off tonight." Finally the solution was a dirty, old fan to sit in the doorway (eventually moved to the window for the night - so we had to sleep with the drapes...

Nice enough, bed wasn't the most comfortable, internet was slow. Price was reasonable. Close to food and monument, thus the name. The bar/restaurant next door served good food, Grizzly Creek. Would recommend.

It's hard to beat stepping outside your door and seeing Mt. Rushmore by day and especially lit up at night. The location is so convenient--close to food and attractions. When we arrived, no one was available at the office, so the attached restaurant sent us to the Travelodge next door, who called someone and sent us back to the motel...

So, at the time I booked, only a couple days before we wanted to take a road trip to Mount Rushmore this hotel had the cheapest rate per night I could find online. I went ahead and booked it based on the fact that they did not have horribly bad reviews on here, but keep in mind, there is no...

The management was great and the rooms clean. That's about all most people would expect for a motel in this price range. It's nothing spectacular, but you can't beat the location. It's right in the center of activities you'd want to see in the Black Hills region. You can walk to wherever you want to go in town. I will...

The room was clean and the staff was friendly. We did have trouble with the shower the second morning and the wireless internet was very slow. The first night we were there was a Saturday and there was difficulty finding a parking space because there is a bar/restaurant attached to the motel office that shares the small parking lot.

My girlfriend stayed here 12 years ago, and it has not changed. It is a great deal, clean large room, you can see Mt. Rushmore light up at night. it is a old school motel that has not changed much. No frills, but thats ok the price reflects that. We would stay there again, nice and quiet and peaceful. My...

This is a very nice motel that is close to Mount Rushmore. Very reasonably priced. Half the cost of the name brand motel around the corner. Had a restaurant attached that had excellent food. Room was very clean and somewhat rustic. Really enjoyed our stay here.
