    The ac sounded like a jet engine. We could not use it. The room was full of flies. We killed 12 of them with one elusive one that bit us all night long. The shower was great. You get what you pay for.

    No frills nights sleep

    Average. Quiet, but outdated. Pricey for the condition of the hotel in the middle of no where.

    No TV!!!

    Unable to watch TV. The volume at its3highest setting was too low to hear from the bed. Not happy after a long day of travel. Blinds are inadequate. They do not filter out much light. Dumpy motel for $90.00. It is more like a $50.00 motel.

    I will not come back to this hotel. It smelled ok but did not feel comfortable. The bath tub drain was very slow in draining. The bathroom faucets were opposite of what they should be.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Dakota Lodge is a typical no frills motel that offers comfort at reasonable rates. It provided much needed protection from a heavy rain storm. My only observation is the windows could do with some blackout curtains to prevent the lights from outside disturbing your sleep. Everything else was acceptable.
