Our stay was exactly as expected. Close to interesting attractions and the scenery of the area is spectacular. Right next to a very clean convenience store/gas station and nearby all kinds of services. Good scrambled eggs and sausage.

Great stop while driving through SD. Clean and large rooms. Everything you need for the night.

We had no coffee due to being left without the disposable coffee tray for filter, no tissues, staff was not available most of our stay. Wanted things from the pantry could find no one to pay. When staff was told of such thing, it was I am sorry about that without even as much as eye contact. For the price, I would never stay there again. I will say the breakfast was very good but poor girl couldn't keep up with the people wanting eggs, etc.

Like was available and dislike none.

Howard Johnson near Chamberlain SD was great, enjoyed a nice, comfortable quiet stay

very nice accomidations...will stay there again very clean

Lots of bugs, not clean. The service is not good.

Quick checkin and decent amenities. Had a nice little mini convenience store that had several snacks and drinks which was very handy. Clean room—we would definitely stay again.

Besides the parking because there’s not a lot and when there’s trailers it’s difficult to back out it was great. Staff was pleasant. Room and common area was clean.

Nice place to stay when traveling. Allows pets for 10 bucks and nice breakfast.

It was clean and easily accessible to highway. The breakfast was mediocre and not properly stocked. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable.

Rooms were nice. Enjoyed the amenities. The walls however, are thin. We heard a dog barking next door and in the morning the man in the adjoining room (not part of our party) kept trying to clear his throat for about 5 minutes. Not a pleasant sound particularly because it was easy to hear.

Very clean and professional looking. Very well worth the money to stay here. Also liked how quiet it was and had a nice pool/spa area to relax in

Front desk staff was unfriendly. Overall facility was clean and good location.

It was an “ok” hotel. If you’re looking for a place to sleep only, then this is perfect. The breakfast wasn’t very good and the rooms could use some updating.

View from outside of hotel had broken windows, etc. Rundown.

Very nice room-clean and comfortable. TV reception was not the best with a limited number of channels.

Pool was cloudy and the hot tub was cold.

Overall, the appearance of the hotel is clean and well maintained. However, in my room I found a candy wrapper on the night stand, a dental floss pick in the drawer of same night stand and dark hairs on the tray beneath the ice bucket. The bed skirts were extremely wrinkled. I checked out of the hotel about 9:30 a.m. and continued on to my destination. Upon my arrival a few hours later, I realized I had left my Tervis travel tumbler and my daughter's water bottle in my room's refrigerator. I called the motel immediately and they said they would set it back for me as I would be going back through the area in a week's time. When I returned to retrieve my items, they could not be found. I was told by the desk clerk that she had gone to the room after I called and they were not in the room. Well, by that time I would have expected housekeeping to have been in the room and turned the items into the lost and found. These were definitely items that you would not throw away. After calls to the head of housekeeping and manager, I was asked if I might have just misplaced the items! I know I did not walk out of the room with them! No apology or acknowledgement that they could be in the wrong was offered. In the week of my trip and since returning home, I have received no calls from the manager. I realize I am responsible for my own items but I also feel a fully customer focused facility would make an attempt to service their customers. I will not stay here again

Thanks for your comments Tony. I will address the staff with your issues. We pride ourselves on our helpful service, so that was disappointing to hear. I'm sorry about the bugs! Our town has been swarmed by crickets this past week! Hopefully they will be gone soon. Thanks again!
