4/10 Fair

Falling apart room, very worn mattress that tilted to one side. Porch leaked badly in the rain, noisy streetside. Never again.

The manager was very nice and friendly and tried his best but due to staff shortage this motel is not meeting any expectations at all.Filthy rooms and towels and beddings has an odor. Cigarette buds everywhere outside the doorsteps.The maintenance staff next door was still working till 11:00pm and none of us could sleep due to the noise of moving and machinery. Do not recommend this place!

Don’t stay here.
Shower so small couldn’t turn around. Sink dirty. Floors dirty. Ice machine not working. Parking lot not paved resulting in dirty shoes in the car. Price gouging. Had to pay $130 for a hotel that shouldn’t have been more than $50.

You Get What You Pay For!
We decided to take a vacation last minute over the summer. So luck was not on our side in finding the best affordable option. We aren’t picky people, and we really only needed the hotel to shower and sleep for a few hours at night, so we made do. And my grandparents and I used to stay at Brookside Motel when they brought me to the Black Hills every summer as a kid, I figured at the very least the nostalgia would overcome the current condition of this place. However, we will never compromise to this extent again. The dirt, bugs, and lack of cleaning overall was expected, although not to such the extent that it was. Even half of the king size bed literally broken and sunken down toward the floor we figured out. Very difficult to get towels, as every opportunity we had to go into the office to get them, the attendants were always in the back in the phone. Didn’t seem to matter how long we waited, no one ever came up. Couldn’t re-use the towels after they’d been on that floor, so I ended up buying some cheap towels when we ran to Rapid on a Walmart run. What I absolutely could not handle was the blood spots permanently stained into the sheets - gross! Overall, sure, if you need a last minute option and this is it, you’ll survive. But as my 7 year old said every morning, “We are never staying here again!”

Never Again !
The picture was deceiving. It's dirty, there couple of flies and webs. I tried opening the window to see some views, saw webs and dead moth on the glass window.

Friendly check in, nice folks but…….Tourist town, ancient facility, way overpriced. Bugs on window and window sill. Floors not mopped probably as far back as vinyl flooring installed. Bed very squeaky and old mattress. Just couldn’t make ourselves spend the night there. Very disappointed and wasted $130.
