Zero personality at the front desk.

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Pros: Good location.
Location: Easy access and central location. I was only there overnight so didn't do any sight seeing.
The lady at the front desk never smiled once, appeared to be wishing she was somewhere else, was unable to give me directions to the Spring Creek Marina and didn't offer to help me find it. She was there to check me out the next morning - still no smile and no thank you for staying at the River Lodge.

Never again

Posted 30-Mar-2015 on Hotels
It was awful... There were extremely long black hairs in our bed on top of the sheet, there was hair in the shower, garbage under the bed...disgusting! And the bees are hard as a rock and very uncomfortable. I was just not happy at all.

One night stay

Posted 09-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Room was a bit small but clean. Hallway noise was significant. Breakfast was adequate but eggs were fake. Good enough for a place to sleep, but nothing to do if you have time to spare. Refrigerator was handy.

Nice motel

Posted 01-Mar-2015
When I stayed there before, I had a room in the annex. Very noisy due to traffic on a busy street. Room I had this time was in the back upstairs, much quieter. Had a good stay, nice staff. I would recommend this motel and probably will stay there again.

Decent Stay & Facilities. Breakfast... Blaaa.

Posted 22-Feb-2015
Pros: Cleanliness, Friendliness and Location.
Cons: Breakfast. It was Blaaa!
Location: Downstream Recreation Area. Lake Oahe. Hunting, Fishing, and Camping.
Aging Facility, but well cared for. A lot of hunters stay at this Facility, during hunting season. Pets are welcome. I was surprised how clean it was with that in the back of my mind. When your in or around Pierre, you're in hunting, fishing and RVing/Camping territory. The rooms were nice and clean. We really couldn't find anything wrong, other than the breakfast. If you're in to biscuits and gravy, you'll really enjoy yourself during breakfast. The donuts were mini and everything else was pretty standard. My wife and I went out for breakfast. Just sounder better after looking to see what they had to offer. The Hotel Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Friendly, too, I might add. The night of our stay, we requested a place to go for a good meal. Steaks preferred. They recommended "The Cattleman's Club Steakhouse" and also "Mad Mary's". After entering them in our Garmin, we found "Mad Mary's" to be just down the road, so that's what we chose. It was absolutely a 5 star experience. My wife and I split the large Prime Rib and it was truly awesome. The price was fair and my red beer was cold. A friend of ours ate at "The Cattleman's Club Steakhouse" farther down the road, (along the Missouri river), and recommended it highly. He did mention the price was much higher than Mad Mary's, but the steaks were excellent. Maybe, next time we'll see. Would stay at the River Lodge again or next time in Pierre without a second thought and would absolutely recommend it to others.

Pros: Great value for a great facility.
Cons: Nothing I saw.
Location: Missouri river is a stone's throw away. This was for work so I didn't get to do much recreation this time
This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The staff on all the various shifts was very friendly and made sure guests were well taken care of.
