Overpriced and poor quality/ dirty pool

Posted Sep 1, 2015
We stayed here on 08/19/15, my wife and three year old. One of the main reasons we stayed her was because they had a pool for my three year old and it got good reviews on expedia. The pool had a bunch of dead bugs floating and at the bottom of the cloudy pool. This was super disappointing. I told the employee on duty Mitch about how gross the pool was and this was his response: We checked it earlier and it was fine. There's a pool 2 blocks away that we own the hotel and you can go there to swim. Really, I payed overy 100 dollars to drive to another hotel cause there's bugs in theirs? Very disappointed with our booking through expedia and the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel if you want a clean pool for your kids to swim in. Also the air conditioner leaked on the floor and got out bags soaked. I did not get what I paid for.

Asked for a rollaway about 7:30pm. Called again at 9:00, both times attendant said would be right up with the rollaway. At 9:30 my husband went to front desk and asked if there was a problem. New attendant....apologized for other person and brought rollaway right up. Not charged for extra!

Sheets on bed bad!

Posted Aug 10, 2015
Pros: 3:30 in the morning too much conversation going on by employees in the hallway next to my room! Did not appreciate being woken up by loud voices.
Cons: Train you employees better and don't think we don't notice when sheets have not been changed!
Location: Better service by all means! Its customers that keep you in business!
sheets on the bed never changed and had to call front desk for service. He came started to change sheets and left me waiting to help customer on the phone. But I paid for my service so why someone via phone takes presidential over my service????

met our needs

Posted Aug 9, 2015
Pros: easy to get to from interstate
Cons: breakfast food could be a little hotter
Stay was fine. Room did have a strange odor in the air conditioner... looked like too much dust on filters.. just a little routine maintenance would probably take care of problem

Traveling through!

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Pros: Convenience to interstate
Cons: A little hidden, maybe a bigger sign, but in general exactly what we were looking for.
Location: I know the Chamberlain area of South Dakota is very big on recreation with the river right there and numerous hunting opportunities in the area.
We were traveling towards the Black Hills and Badlands and wanted to stay on the way out. Nicer than expected, decent breakfast, nice friendly staff, very convenient from the interstate.

Nice facilities. Great rooms. I'd stay again. Could use more weights in the exercise room but overall satisfaction.

Nice hotel

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: Quiet and clean
Cons: Water in pool was cloudy, could have been nicer.
We were pleasantly surprised at what a lovely hotel this was. They had a good restaurant and a large bar. We had a clean spacious room on the first floor with a nice view of the grounds. We only stayed one night but it was very comfortable. The lobby was beautiful.

Great place on the Missouri River .

Posted Jul 25, 2015
We stayed here on the way home from trip out to Rapid City. We drove through the Badlands then on to Oacoma where we only stayed on night to have dinner, shop and break up our trip home. We are glad we did. Al's Oasis which was just down the road was a great place to eat with a nice shop just next door and a grocery 2 doors down where we restocked our cooler and snack bag. This HJ exceeded our expectations. We loved the lobby with the SD wildlife theme.
