Friendly desk service as we arrived at 7:30 pm. Received good, local food recommendations. Room was clean with comfortable king bed, good cable TV, working heater, hot water, shower pressure. Basic continental breakfast.

A quiet basic place to stop and rest. I slept well. The hotel isn't much but it is a place to rest and I parked my 60 foot Pickup/Trailer combo in the parking lot. The hotel is just off the freeway. I would stop in again if I needed a place to rest while keeping good time.

This was the only hotel we could find in the area. Room #133 was clean but there was a slight musty smell. We had the air conditioner on overnight and it flooded the floor of our room. Our shoes and some of our clothes were soaked. Find another hotel!

I was on the internet looking for a decent place to land for the night when I spotted a very quaint red wood motel surrounded by trees, I called and booked a room for the night. I was totally surprised to find a large brick building as the econo lodge. I showed the picture to the very pleasant manager who was also surprised with the picture but he explained to me how the internet can slide in any picture if you are not on the direct hotel web site. The hotel was very clean and the room was spacious with comfortable beds. It was a good nights rest even though the picture was deceiving. The free breakfast had a small variety of food but nothing that was of interest to my palate.

Short review is that there are a lot of other options in town/highway, and you are probably better off staying in one of those rather than here. Cons: Fridge was advertise, fridge did not work Breakfast was advertised, there was basically nothing, I think a bagel/muffin or two. Coffee machine took forever to fill, even then, it was basically coffee flavored water. Neutral Comments: Rooms are what you'd expect from a motel, definitely not as nice as the posted pictures The location was sort of by itself on a different exit as everything else in town, depends on what floats your boat, but I kind of felt isolated. I believe the front desk closes at 11pm at which point you can no longer check in.

I stay here every time I pass through town. It's quiet clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The rates here are cheaper than other hotels as well. Very easy to find on the north side of exit 175 on I-90.

We were traveling most of the day at it had gotten late. We wanted a clean quiet room to get some rest and just travel on the next morning. We arrived about midnight and we wanted a fist floor room. The only room they had was 2 doubles so we made that work for us. Breakfast is very limited, but they did have good coffee. This is not the best hotel I ever stayed in, but it did meet our last minute needs. If needed I would stay here again.

Staff and owner were great, the place was very clean, quiet and well maintained. Best nights sleep of the trip. Basic breakfast included. No restaurant next door, but there are just a bit down the interstate. The value is in the hotel itself and we had a great stay for a great price!

My wife and I were crossing US 90 on the way to Mt Rushmore. The rooms were very clean and everyting worked. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The television was a large flatscreen with a good selection of channels. Water pressure and temperture was great and the AC unit worked great. The desk help was knowledgable and helpful. Would be happy to stay there again.

We just needed a quick place to stay. I was very impressed with the condition of the property and the overall cleanliness of the room. It looks like they have been working to update things. The bathroom fixtures were new. I was particularly impressed with the staff.
