Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was ok. The queen beds seemed on the small side and the AC was loud and kept shutting on and off but still worked. Overall, it was fine. We stayed on the fourth floor and it has two elevators, one on each side, that were almost always open and quick to use. The biggest plus to this hotel is the awesome pool slide and gaming area. It was busy at night but we went several days in the early afternoon and it was pretty open. My 10 year old son loved the slide and also it is fun for adults. We played ping pong a lot as well. Had a couple drinks at the bar - was just ok...I think they overcharged us once on a drink special...but they were able to sell drinks in plastic cups and let us bring to pool area. "Casino" is a joke..I think just 2 really old machines - didn't try them. We went to the attached Perkins twice and they are very understaffed. It wasn't even very busy but they could not keep up. Food was fine but service was bad. Location is really convenient and easy to go get gas as well since you can go right into the station from the parking lot.

This hotel is ok. It's a bit further from the Black Hills area than I had expected. Front desk staff seemed judgemental when I asked to pay in cash. I was having an issue with the card I had on file there and they were quick to want to cancel my reservation as opposed to taking cash. I got it figured out but it seemed cold to me. My kids enjoyed the slide by the pool. Whirlpool is super tiny but the game room by the pool made it a fun atmosphere. Rooms were ok. It was an ok stay.

The decor and furniture is straight out of the late 1800s. Nothing makes sense including in the wallpaper and carpet. Very dated and tired. The room was clean and comfortable, so no complaints there
