Traveler rating:
Sort by:
6.0 Okay
Cons:It would have been nice to know that 3/4 of the site, including the pool and restaurants, were closed
6.5 Okay
Pros:The brand new mattresses.
Cons:The rooms are small, but the bathrooms are even smaller! They are currently installing new air conditioners, which are greatly needed. The ones they have now, cannot keep up. They have updated the pool and foyer since last year. Unfortunately, the rates were high because of Sturgis Rally.
6.5 Okay
Pros:I liked the price of the room.
Cons:I did not like the fact that children were playing in the pool until 11:30pm.
2.3 Poor
Pros:Needs updating. Pool and hot tub disgusting. It is a 1960 motel style, staff seemed like who cares and there was no lifeguard at pool but an armed guard.
Cons:It was barely acceptable.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Easy access to interstate. Very good breakfast.
Cons:They ware doing some remodeling. No refrigerator in the room. The AC was not cooling the room enough. All they could do would be to send up a fan.
5.3 Fair
Pros:The TV was fine.
Cons:The breakfast was bad; cold food, cold coffee. No way to get fresh air in the rooms. Dirty under the beds. No extra outlets to plug in phone or computer.
9.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was helpful, and wanted to make our stay as nice as possible. Slight difficulties checking in (due to us reserving our stay through a "3rd party"), but they resolved it quickly and without hassle. Room was clean, cleaning staff did a great job with our room. Just little touches that made it a great value
Cons:The pool was chilly, and the hot tub was extremely hot (I keep mine at 102, this was WAY hotter!).
