Love staying here and do so at least once a year, sometimes more. It is convenient and family friendly. Great breakfasts. Great staff. My only wish is that the carpet could be replaced, especially in the hallways and on the stairs. The condition of the carpeting could be off-putting to those who do not know how wonderful this place really is.

Good.

The place was nice and clean. Staff was very pleasant. The light as you enter the room did not work. The parking lot was under repair. I requested a handicap room as I have back and knee problems. The room was at the end of the hall, so we had to carry luggage a long distance.

Simple and to the point. The hallways were a little chaotic at times, but the room was extremely clean.

Front desk staff were great.

Room was very nice and clean. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly especially the lady in the morning. She is one of South Dakota's citizen crown jewels.. She was so friendly and kind. Has been working their for years. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with very delicious and healthy offerings. Juices and Hot Fresh coffee as well Loved the local history of all of SD's Governor's that was on display in the hotel. The owner makes it clear that he is not only proud to be a South Dakotan but also is a very respectful of all of our wonderful American Traditions and Values. The hotel is just across the street from a beautiful scenic walk along the Missouri River as well and it is a very beautiful and refreshing walk to take. Would stay again indeed! Rick Denver

We loved the guest grill outside and patio tables.

The room looked pretty nice. But the bed was HANDS DOWN THE WORST BED I’ve ever slept in.

It was a nice hotel and everything I expected for the money I paid.

I was very pleased with this hotel overall, and special thanks to Chris for being among the most helpful people I've ever encountered among hotel staff.

Convenient location. Good breakfast option. Bed was comfy.

The restaurant next door is terrific Italian food Nice breakfast till in the morning

The hotel is generally clean and, despite being a somewhat depressing setting, provides what one might expect for Pierre. Don't expect up-market customer service or your pick of rooms here, so bring ear plugs in case you end up on the back side by the train tracks (a problem in just about any Pierre lodging). Until a Hampton Inn shows up out on the bypass, this might be as good as it gets.

We spent Thanksgiving in Pierre with family and really enjoyed our stay at the Governor's Inn. It was clean, good beds, good breakfast and good staff!

Great value. Staff was very nice And easy to work with. Room was very clean and comfortable. Rates were very low compared to similar motels. If your looking for low cost clean comfort with no frills, this will work.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better value proposition. Clean room; attentive, friendly staff; good facilities (cold pool though); comfy bed; yummy waffles for breakfast; all at a very reasonable price. Big thumbs up!

We arrived at the front desk, and the clerk double charged us for the room....we had prepaid when we booked , and the clerk charged me again, and tried to blame company we booked thru. There was some sort of Family Reunion thing going on, so there were children and adults alike running up and down the hallways. The pool was full of rowdy teenagers and was not safe for my daughter, so she had to wait until they left before she could play. Loud talking out side of our door until well past midnight...Over all it was not a pleasant stay at all....We will think long and hard before we get a room here again.!!!!!

Pretty standard set up as far as hotels go, but the staff went out of their way to make it that much better. The rooms were clean and quiet. The building is not new but they have kept it up and clean. My room had a new(er) heat/AC system which was very quiet and functional. There was free soup and cookies in the evening. The only slightly negative comment I have was their free breakfast- there was nothing wrong- it just was the same over the 4 days I was there. I was in town for a hunting trip with friends. Some of them brought their dogs which the hotel allowed. Hotel was hunter friendly. I have been in a lot of hotels in big cities and small towns. This one held its own against some newer places in town where I have also stayed.
