Nice Hotel

This hotel was very nice. It is next to the mall and several restaurants. Also, just a short, pretty drive from Mt. Rushmore.

Handy motel

Nice clean motel with good breakfast. Very handy if you are flying, as they let you park your car and have a free shuttle to airport.

The room was horible

There was blood on the comforter, and the toilet kept flushing every ten minutes. We were not impressed.

Great on a budget

The room comes with a microwave and a fridge, so for the price, that was great. Only down side was there was no iron or ironing board. I am not sure if you could get on at the front desk as I went to a family members house to use theirs.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Very close to several resturants, the mall, and shopping facilities, one could even walk if it were nice out.

annual girl trip

For breakfast, it was the same thing every day{7]and not much variety. Muffins and donuts weren't very fresh. No ironing board, iron, or hair dryer as found in other motels. Man who worked in breakfast room had greasy hair. Laundry room nice .Great location for all the sights we wanted to see. The bathroom was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful if we needed something.

Trip to Mt. Rushmore

We planned to visit Mt. Rushmore, crazy horse and other scenic places around western SD. The hotel gave us the perfect value for money. We traveled all day and used it for sleeping only, so that way we were not looking for a costly place. The breakfast looked a bit on the lower side, but is just managable

You get what you pay for

The pool area was very tiny. The hot tub had a bunch of tiles that were missing along the edges. It is definitely in need of some renovations but if you are looking for something that is cheaper and you aren't going to be spending much time at the hotel than it works.

Anniversary trip

We could have found a closer motel to the attractions we were visiting, but it was a nice place. Kids would love the curly slide with the pool. The place was clean and quiet, and we enjoyed it. The staff was very nice and helpful.

econoledge at rapid city

It is an average motel. Clean, staffs are friendly. However, the location is a little bit tricky to find. In addition, they gave me a smoking room while I asked a non-smoking one at first, but they did change the room for me. Consider these factors, it is a little bit pricey.
