This small hotel is located in a very seedy and derelict section of downtown. We felt very unsafe walking in the surrounding neighborhood after dark. The exterior of the hotel was in shambles. The hotel lobby closes between 11 pm and 7 am, so there is no staff or security whatsoever at night. There was incessant noise all night long from a non-ending stream of Harleys and mufferless pickup trucks roaring up and down the street in front of the hotel. Even with earplugs, sleep was impossible. Though the room was clean and recently "remodeled", the toilet seat was not attached to the toilet bowl so sitting down on it was not possible. Of course there was no breakfast. There were no close restaurants; even if there was a restaurant with 20 minutes walking distance, it would be risky to say the least.

Room was very clean and well laid out. Great to have a microwave and a fridge with a FREEZER!! The place was quiet and easy to use. Close to down-town and easy walking distance to a C-store or two. The owner's wife was on duty when we came in and when we checked out--and she was very friendly and cared about our stay. Only one small problem was the AC unit in our room was not very powerful-but kept the room semi-cool. Over-all a great value!

Thought with location it would be bad....turned out to be one of the best on our trip!!!

very clean, very convenient to major highways and downtown district

As advertised we are not open 24/7, and also do not advertise a breakfast. As there is nothing I can do but be forthright about what we have to offer we are very clear about what we do have. A nice clean room, at a good rate, with friendly staff. We do have an emergency number posed on our office doors if you need assistance and always answer your call. As for the traffic, I wish I could say I could control that but unfortunately the DOT doesn't let me block off any street. However I can assure you we are in one of the most quiet areas in the city. We are less than one mile from an abundance of fast food restaurants, and less than two miles from the downtown area where there are more than 20 sit down restaurants to choose from.

As an owner as well, I want to make sure everyone has a great stay with us, feels welcome, and sees everything there is to see in our beautiful area. I am glad to say that we have fixed our A/C problem (as fast as we could given I couldn't fix it myself, but had to call out a company) and it is ready for our next guests this summer. I am glad you had a wonderful time in our beautiful Black Hills.
