Normally, I prefer to stay at campsites, but due to COVID, we decided to stay in a room with facilities. It was fair priced for what you get. It was just outside the Interior entrance to the Badlands National Park. It was quiet and had a fantastic view. We stayed in a two queen room. The TV cable cord was not secure and the only thing on the station was some kids show I didn't care for. This wasn't an issue for me, just sharing. The room was spacious and the bathroom was a little tight, but everything worked. Like I mentioned, it is a good stay for the more low maintenance traveler. If you need a clean place to sleep and shower, it will work for you. I wouldn't bring a whole family to stay for a long period of time. So, to put it more short. It's a great place if you need to stay night while viisitng the area short term.

Was charged extra and standard amenities didn't work

Upon the first day, our room had dead bugs, including a suspicious beetle in the bathroom. I was charged for having an third person when the website states 4 people per 2 queen room. We accidentally left a pillow behind but were told the manager would look for it and call us back, they never called.the second day, on our way home, the room didn't have working outlets, dead bugs again, the tubs coating was pealing, and the shower handle broke off. It looked like instead of properly cleaning the room, the person just made the beds and left a stack of clean towels on the table (and not on the clean towel rack).

Stayed here several times

The last time we stayed here was June 2018. I made an error and put the review with a different place so just making the correction. We have always enjoyed staying here. Beautiful views from the grounds. Good people in the office for check in and out. Breakfast wasnt fancy but was ok and enough. Beds good and nicely decorated. We've always enjoyed staying here.

Summer trip

A bit pricey for the room but it is in the middle of nowhere. Perfect location for the Badlands. Doesn’t seem like the office is open much. Arrived at 4:45 and it was closed, found our keys in the box. The keys didn’t work. Lucky someone was in the laundry. Paid for a rollaway and didn’t get it. Breakfast is not served here but up the road at another place, we will see how that goes.

Totally decent motel

The bad reviews had me nervous about staying here, but we found it totally fine. The room was clean and comfortable.You can sit on a bench outside your room with an incredible view of the Badlands. I would recommend you bring your own soap or bath wash because there was just one tiny little bar of soap. Also there was no hairdryer that I found.
