The WiFi did not work in the room. We called and reported the issue,but it never got resolved. Staff was very friendly and great, enjoyed the bartender at the bar too! Hotel was run down, dated and had several notes in the room about reasons we will get charged extra, which we have never experienced before. Housekeeping was questionable also, as we found someones dirty sock under one of the beds the morning we were packing to leave. Bonus was that our son loved the pool area.

We stayed there during the 82nd Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Price was reasonable and it's location made it a convenient return spot from any direction while touring through the Black Hills. The staff was very friendly and we truly did enjoy our week there. They had a special section blocked off for motorcycle parking right up front. We will definitely book rooms here again next year!
