When travelers really want to get away from it all, they can start by checking off American must-see attractions, which are conveniently close to our Chamberlain hotel. Have you ever wanted to see Mount Rushmore? How about the famous Corn Palace? Guests who stay at our Chamberlain hotel can enjoy the charm of a smaller town, but still be close to monuments and must-see attractions. St. Joseph’s Indian School is also close by, and of course the Missouri River snakes through the region and is a must for water recreation enthusiasts and literary lovers. However, you might just want to stay close to your spacious room since there’s an indoor pool on the property. Drive up access and ample parking make unloading your rig, camper or rental car as easy as possible. Enjoy free Wi-Fi, a hot tub and sauna at this Chamberlain hotel. The friendly staff members all believe in doing everything possible to make your trip pleasant. The annual American Island Days also bring a number of travelers to town. The Missouri River is a staple for events year-round. Boating and fishing on the famous river are only three blocks away, and boaters will be happy to find a dock located there. However, if you prefer dry ground, a golf course is just three miles away. From the St. Joseph Pow Wow to pheasant hunting, there are endless things to do here. Located just two miles off of I-90, our hotel is the perfect stop between South Dakota on the way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Guided fishing trips, especially in the spring, are popular in our city of Chamberlain. Hiking through the bluff or taking a four-hour trip to the nearby Black Hills are also favorite activities. You can also rent a pontoon for a unique experience the whole family will enjoy. For those who are here on business, you can’t find a better location. Service men and women with the National Guard and Navy traveling off I-90 count on our Chamberlain hotel to provide a relaxing place to stay. Book your next stay at Best Western Lee’s Motor Inn for a guaranteed refreshing trip! Enjoy your stay.

"Nice hotel"

5
12/06/2018

The receptionist at check in was wonderful and helpful. We wanted a quiet room in the back and that's what we got. We didn't hear a sound all night, the A/C unit was very quiet and we were very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, the sausage gravy and biscuits was very good, as were the waffles. The yogurt, pastries, bagels, etc. section was very good also. The coffee was good, not the usually, weak coffee one usually encounters at a hotel. The temperature in the lobby and breakfast room was very comfortable. This is an older Motor Inn and has been completely updated.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our breakfast. Please call and let us book your next trip. See ya soon!

The staff was extra helpful with our late arrival. The beds were so comfy, room clean, and neighborhood was really quiet. Tasty breakfast with helpful staff. Really nice location near the Dignity statue. I'd definitely stay again.

Everything at the hotel was wonderful from the check in experience to checking out. Front desk staff is so friendly. Clean, safe, good breakfast, nice pool, etc. It is in a great location close to the river. I want to stay there again!

"Horrible Nights Sleep"

3
14/05/2018

This best Western is located in a quaint little town that wraps around the Missouri River. You drive in on a solid cement pad. It isn't the most attractive looking site that we were pleasantly pleased with the large rooms, cleanliness of the rooms and most definitely the staff. You may wonder why I am only giving it a three rating. When we came in a beautiful young lady by the name of Daniel greeted us. After we registered she gave us a couple suggestions as to where to eat. Sidenote, we ate at a little marina bar. The busted nut had a special that night prime rib sandwich. Excellent. We questioned the front desk before we went to bed about the fact that the room was not cooling down, we were assured it would cool down but that it cooled slowly. After not sleeping most of the night, We drag ourselves out of bed. I don't come to a hotel to swim or to admire the furnishings. I come to a motel to sleep. This morning we went in for coffee and the lobby was so hot you couldn't stay in there, it was at that point we were told the owner instructed the staff to turn the AC off at 11 pm We spoke with the receptionist, and then the day manager. She apologized profusely. She was a lovely lady and offered to cut our room cost in half. Although this is a generous conciliatory response, the fact is we drove 10 hours yesterday to not sleep last night and to be facing 10 hours driving today. She said our room was next to the boiler room… Ain't that the truth! I would love to give them a higher rating.

"Fishing vacation"

27/04/2018

The hotel is very nice. Plenty of parking even with all the boats that was there for the fishing tournaments that was going on in town.The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. Breakfast was very good. The location was excellent for fishing the river. Would stay there when we go back.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you! Yes parking can get tight but always seems to work out if organized correctly. Glad you enjoyed you stay with us and hope to see you again soon! Take care

In the summer, I always stay at this motel on the way to the Black Hills. This was my first winter stay and it was just as pleasant as my summer stays! Even though there was a ton of snow, the parking lot was cleared nicely and the room was very comfy.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Glad you could take care of you again. Thank you for making us your stop on the way to the Black Hills. See again soon.

"Nice, but odd, rooms"

3
29/03/2018

This hotel is an older hotel. The rooms are accessed from the outside via a common walkway. Physically challenged people will want to request a first floor room. The rooms themselves were okay. The layout was a bit odd however. There were two queen beds but they were separated by the bathroom area. Each room had a pocket door for privacy. Odd, but that was all really. The bathroom had been partially remodeled in the past. There was a new basin and counter. The shower surround had been replaced but the tub had a bit of a step over height. Not huge, but be aware. I did not have breakfast at the common area so I cannot comment on the quality. There was a fish cleaning station located onsite. This was not covered so this will be a bit warm in the summer. I believe there was some water available, but I did not pay too much attention as I was not there to fish. The hotel was fine. If selections were limited and this was available I would stay here again.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. the fish cleaning is temorary with the fishing season and is well maintained throughout the season. Yes the split rooms are nice for 2 people looking to split cost or for couples traveling together. Please let us know if we can help you in the future.

"Mount Rushmore"

23/01/2018

Older building rooms need to be updated. Front desk staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The beds were comfortable and rates weren't bad. Located close to the bridge and river which made for a nice little stroll after dinner.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! We are currently renovating our guest rooms. Glad you enjoyed chamberlain's downtown area! Please stop and see us again on your next time through and we will make sure to get you in a renovated room. Hope to see you soon!

08/01/2018

I had a great overall stay here and I actually slept great the whole time. The room was comfortable and welcoming and so were the staff. I didn't get to the hot tub or pool but everything else was great. Oh yes, the coffee was really good.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Stop back on your next trip to try out the pool and hot tub. Coffee is always ON! See you next time!

"Good for the money."

28/11/2017

Clean,comfortable and good for the money. Location in downtown easy to find, by a river. Breakfast with only warm gravy and biscuits, Waffle maker as most Best Westerns have. Coffee rather weak. Quiet and nice staff.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us. Glad you enjoyed our staff. We will look into some other breakfast options. Hope to see you again soon.

"Lime gravy... ??"

2
21/11/2017

Biscuit gravy had a citrus/lime flavor that was unexpected. Coffee from the coffee machine did not have a pleasant flavor. There was a smoke odor in the bathroom. We could hear other guests through the walls. We are Rewards members and have AAA, but were not given a discount on the room.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. we are truly sorry for the troubles you encountered. We will look at ways to fix the issues stated. Hope you can give us another try if in the area!

"Nice Place For Our Group Of Hunters"

16/11/2017

I was on a pheasant hunt with 17 other friends and they always stay at this motel. My friend that I was sharing a room with snores, so we got a perfect room. When you open the door there was a nice size bedroom, then you walk into a bath with another bedroom on the other side of the bath, which made it perfect for us as I wake very early and he snores LoL. I was waking up about 4 or 5 AM and would quitely dress and walk over to the main lobby. They have a free breakfast with waffles, boiled eggs, cereal, muffins, donuts, etc and plenty of hot coffee. There is also an indoor pool with a jacuzzi.. The motel also set up a room, without beds, were we could get together, talk, watch TV and have a drink. Enjoyed my stay.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! Glad you enjoyed our 2 room family units. They are wonderful for getting your own space! Hope to see you again.

This hotel had nice rooms, comfortable beds, rooms are clean and the housekeepers cleaned the room efficiently. The hotel staff was very nice and explained everything very nicely. The location next to the Missouri River was very easily accessed.

"cool"

11/11/2017

I had to tell the receptionist my zip 3 times and it was still wrong on my receipt. It was extremely cold so I didn't even look at the pool. Motel was very busy with pheasant hunters. No microwave in my room unlike other best westerns I've stayed in. Only fruit at breakfast were apples. The room was clean and warm.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank your for your review. sorry for the confusion at check-in on the zip code. We will look into getting more variety of fruit. Thank you for your input. Please let us know if we can help with your next trip out.

04/11/2017

This was our 19th trip and we always stay at Lee's Best Western. It is clean, attractive, and has all the amenities. There is an indoor pool and hot tub that are really helpful after a long day of pheasant hunting in cold windy conditions. The staff are helpful and courteous.

26/10/2017

Driving between Rapid City and Sioux Falls, Chamberlin is an Oasis late at night when tired. Lee's is a quiet place to crash into bed before crashing on the road. There just isn't a choice place but Lee's fits the bill. Average but clean and friendly.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review! Chamberlain is a great location on I-90 in central SD. Visit the area attractions and scenery on you next visit. Hope to see you soon. Take care

25/10/2017

Great service, no issues, amenities were in exceptional condition, new refrigerators, room finishes were in great shape, nice to see an establishment that realizes that updating finishes (carpet, ceiling tiles, etc. is important)

"Older hotel ~ not worth $$."

3
25/10/2017

Not many choices in Chamberlain and this was the cheapest ($70+). Older hotel but great staff. Hotel/room is nothing fancy but for a 1 night stop it suffices. Does offer a nice free breakfast. Short 5 minute drive off I-90.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are in the process of updates and renovation. Come back and see what we have done!

"Great Staff in older property with wonderful restaurant across street"

19/10/2017

Great front desk staff at check in and checkout (was same person). Property is older and feels like it could use some renovation. Bfast was average. There is a great place specializing in wings and pizza just across the street -- nice to be able to walk to a great supper site.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your response. The Upper Crust across the road is a wonderful choice!Our property is older, but have recently done some renovating and will continue to update. Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you on your next trip.

"Great overnight stop"

5
19/10/2017

Stayed as was best choice for an overnight stop over. Keep in mind older hotel from the 60-70s. They make up for this in friendly down Home attitude and price. Clean, comfortable, and economical night stay. Set your expectations accordingly.

"Nice place to stay"

12/10/2017

I liked this motel for the most part, the only negative we had was there was not a fridge in the room. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We found the it to be close to places to eat and a short walk gives you a nice view of the river.

Steve s, Front Office Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed our community. Sorry about the fridge some rooms have them, working on getting more. We will make sure you have one on your next visit.

"Just OK, an old style motel from the 50's"

3
10/10/2017

My title sort of says it all. Something amusing though - I was assigned to Room 1. I don't ever think I'll have a room with that number anywhere else I stay. The fourth review down from mine says that they were put in this room and found a dead roach in their bathtub. I didn't have a similar experience, but I agree that the bedding is old and tired. Seemed clean enough. This room was unusual in that it had both a King bed and a Queen. Note: they have no rooms with just one King, and only two other rooms like mine where they combine a king and a queen. That seems rather unusual. Because the bathroom was so old and grungy looking, I actually skipped taking a shower. On the plus side, the separate area for the bathroom counter was huge, which I like for spreading out my typical "female" bathroom necessities. I did not go to their breakfast, and didn't expect much of it anyway. I would not stay here again, though I can't say that my experience was all that bad.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. Sorry we didn't meet your needs. We do have rooms with one K bed but must have been all booked for the night. Hope you can give us another try on your next trip.

09/10/2017

I visit Chamberlain every year, and I always stay at Lee's Best Western. The people are very down-to-earth, and they genuinely care about your comfort. The hotel is clean, the beds are very comfortable, and everything is within walking distance.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed you stay with us. Please stop and see us next time out.

"Good value"

08/10/2017

We were pleasantly surprised at how large the room was. There was both a king size and queen size bed plus recliner and two desk chairs. Separate sink area outside bathroom which is a plus. Breakfast had more items then we expected with both hot and cold selections. Overall a good value. We prefer hotels to motor inns, but would stay here again.

"Below average for a Best Western"

2
08/10/2017

Pretty easy check in but room was sub par. The carpeting was cheap and dirty looking. The sheets looked clean but were thin and barely fit on the bed. Mattress and pillows were beyond their prime. Breakfast was meager and cold. Will not return.

Steve s, General Manager at Best Western Lee'S Motor Inn, responded to this review
Sorry for the problems you encountered on your stay with us. We take pride and serving our guests clean and comfort and are sincerely sorry we missed it for you. If your in the area please stop and give us another try. Best Regards

"Roach Motel"

1
05/10/2017

We checked in, went to remove 11 and as soon as he walked in the door that was a roach crawling up the wall. The people at the front desk. It was funny. They did move us to a different room and that was room number 1 and as when I was getting ready to take a bath, I found a dead roach in this room. YUCK!!!! I have never stayed in a room with roaches but I did the other night. This hotel is very old and not well maintained. I would find somewhere else to stay and skip this place at all costs. I hardly ever write bad reviews on TripAdvisor but this one was so bad I found the need to.

"road trip to south dakota"

03/10/2017

hotel was nice and parking right by our room was nice so we didn't have far to bring our bags back and forth. breakfast had very good choices hot and cold wish there was hot eggs instead of hard boiled, but otherwise biscuits and gravy waffles, breads, juices and cereals was good. Easy to find and right by the Missouri river.

"Great place to stay"

26/09/2017

This is a very nice place to stay. Easy to find. Great staff. I have been coming back for ten years when I come to the St.Joe's PowWow weekend, The rooms are clean, the complimentary breakfast is very good and it is very quiet. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone planning to visit here or just as a great place to stay when traveling further west.

I have stayed at this Best Western motel several times over the years and have always been very satisfied with all things. The people working there are friendly and willing to help in any way, the rooms have been very clean and comfortable.

"smelly room"

3
24/09/2017

The room had a bad smell of dogs. a little baking soda or a good vacuum of the room might help. Be advised that they do accept pets, no problem but the room was really smelly. Some horrible person parked just outside or our room and left his doges in a cage all night in the back of his truck. they barked at two a.m. He walked them at 2 a.m. and again at 6 a.m. and they barked some more...not the hotels fault, but the smell was

"Good location"

4
22/09/2017

Location was nice, by the Missouri River. Also, close to the St Joseph Indian school. Wish we could have stayed longer. We were not very happy with the breakfast. Doors to the pool were always open and not in the main building.

"Very comfortable and convenient access to I90."

4
19/09/2017

We stopped here on the way from St. Paul to Spearfish. We were very happy with the room which was very clean and had nice, clean white bedspreads, a thermostat and good wi-fi. The beds and pillows were very cofortable. We stayed at 3 Best Westerns (Chamberlain, Spearfish and Custer) and at each one, they include the wi-fi access code on the envelope with your key-card. At the Chamberlain Best-West, there are chairs and little tables and a picnic table outside and it's nice to sit out there after spending so much time in the car. I really appreciate the free breakfast which has plenty of choices including biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, various cereals, hard boiled eggs, orange juice, waffles,mini-muffins and donuts and more.It saves a lot of time and money and you can get back on the road that much sooner. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. I really think that this motor inn is a very good value

"What a deal"

5
19/09/2017

This was one of the best deals we received on our trip out west. You can tell this hotel continues to keep updated and it's not just cosmetics. Friendly staff and nice hot tub. And all at an affordable price. I am very impressed.

"rest stop"

19/09/2017

the BW Motor Inn designed as a strip mall. The swimming pool was located entirely in another building which discouraged us from using it. However, the beds were very comfortable, the staff was friendly, the morning breakfast was ok. What we didn't care for was the fly's which entered because of the way the rooms were set up...something that couldn't be helped.

"One night stopover in route to Black hills area"

17/09/2017

Driving from Chicago to Black Hills area I chose Chamberlain as our overnight stop. Perfect Perfect Perfect! Easy access to and from Interstate. Clerk at front desk was very friendly.She knew the area very well and suggested a great place for dinner after a long drive. The hotel does show signs of wear and tear. Doesn't any structure. It is well maintained and clean! We stayed in a room with one queen bed. The room did not have a refrigerator or microwave. No big deal. I don't know if they offer them in any other rooms. We had our cooler and we were here for only one night.The room was very clean and updated. The bed was comfy! ....(keep this in mind)....We stayed in a room with access from lobby. There are only 2 floors. Rooms with outside doors right to your car or rooms with access from hotel lobby.( No elevators.They do have a luggage lift.) Breakfast area was clean and well stocked. Waffles,juice, and coffee. Staff was very friendly.I do recommend this hotel.I will stay here again when in the area.

This was a very welcoming, comfortable stay. Loved the vibe. Staff was great, room was clean and location super. Will be staying again on return trip. Surrounded by friendly town, beautiful lake and lovely park with walking paths.

"A very nice hotel"

13/09/2017

This is a very nice and well-run hotel. The staff was friendly and professional, and the entire hotel including my room was very clean. I did not have any problems at all during my stay, and I will certainly stay here again the next time I am in town. The breakfast was decent, and does include hot items. Breakfast is not quite what you get at other places, but your not paying an extra 30 dollars for it either. I thought the cost was a great value compared to how nice this place is.

"Very comfortable!"

07/09/2017

We've stayed here several times over the years en route to Keystone, Deadwood, Spearfish, & Sturgis area from Minneapolis. Great priced, comfortable rooms! Pool & hot tub too! We will reserve here again next time we travel!

"Road to Deadwood, SD"

06/09/2017

It was just a stop over for one night for me and my husband across the state. I was a good one night stay. Except we woke up to a stinky garbage can out side our door next to our vehicle, flys every way. Rooms smelled a little musty, but it was 95 degrees out. But probably would stay again on an over stay.

"Small rooms, meager breakfast"

2
03/09/2017

Although we only had one queen size bed, we found the hotel room to be small and felt cramped in it. We did get a good night's sleep. Since we had skipped breakfast the night we checked in, we were hungry in the morning. However, the selection of breakfast items provided was extremely meager with fewer offerings than we had experienced at other hotels. I even had to use a tea bag that I had brought from home as there was only one type of black tea provided by the hotel.

"Perfect for a stopover."

4
29/08/2017

We needed a room for the night as a stopover during our trip across South Dakota. We chose this location because it was only about two hours from the Badlands and the price was right. It was easy to find and was clean and comfortable. The building was showing some age, but was well maintained. That said, the best part was the staff. The clerks that I spoke to were friendly and super helpful. The seemed to enjoy showing off their town of Chamberlain. One quirk though; the pictures on the walls in our room were hung very high, almost to the ceiling. I wondered if they were hiding something, or if a very tall person installed them.

"Small and uncomfortable bed"

25/08/2017

The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. However, the room was very small and dated. The bed was small and not very comfortable.The room was noisy. The view from the window in the room was less than desirable.

23/08/2017

Clean,clean,clean! Friendly,efficient staff. Queen bed comfy. Air con unit hummed quietly-not the usual roar found in most hotels. Room nice and cool upon arrival. Hotel fully booked but was very quiet. Good sized room with table and 2 chairs and still lots of room.Breakfast room was very clean and items replenished quickly. Coffee tasted like coffee. Great price. Would stay again.

This is an old property that has been updated. It is clean but not fancy. Folks are friendly and you can pull up t the door of your room, which we like when on the motorcycle. Walking distance to several places to eat and river right beside it. Easy in and easy out. Exactly what I would expect from this type property.

Breakfast could have had a few more selections. Very convienent to gas and food. Perfect for passing through for a one night stay. The door to outside was a little old and rickety. Overall for the price and no pet charge the value was great.

It's a good motel. Not top of the line. Certainly far from the bottom. Price was right. Very comfortable bed. Nice breakfast (Waffles - Yum!) Very friendly staff. Gave great advice on where to go for dinner. Quiet, even though it was Sturgis week. Only problem was ants (NOT bugs!) on the corner table. I suspect some soft drink may have been spilled on the carpet, and the little tiny ants came out of the woodwork to clean it up. (We've all seen this in your own homes from time to time.) I showed some photos to the desk clerk, and she immediately made a small price adjustment that satisfied the both of us. Again, these were NOT bugs. Would I stay here again? Absolutely. Without question.

An Awesome experience at this Motel style of Hotel.... GREAT Staff with a Beautiful setting, clean and very safe. The added bonus was the type of fellow travellers that your hotels attract, as I spoke with many fellow travellers that were friendly and great sources of information. Great for kids of all ages. The staff was very friendly and helpful going out of their way to ensure that I had what I wanted and needed. And if you can make the time to check out the Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Centre and St. Josephs Indian School... it is well worth the time spent... I wish I had allowed for the Full day of touring this facility.... I will be back!

The hotel is not off I-90, but three miles down the highway. It is easy to find. The lady at the front desk is extremely nice. Check in/check out was easy breezy. The local fisherman and fisherwomen were nice, but there were a lot of rude/inconsiderate guests in the hotel and pool area. Parking is tight so get a spot, and walk into town. The river and bridge were beautiful to look at.

We were very pleased to find this Motel right on the river. After a long day of riding we were ready to relax. This is not a fancy motel, but very clean and accommodating. The price was very reasonable, and an Italian pizza shop is right across the street with a great view of the river. We would stay here again, and recommend it to be very satisfactory. Loved the large vanity for bath/personal items. The hair dryer did not work in the room, but was replaced immediately by the desk clerk with a smile. Bed was very comfortable.

17/07/2017

This motel, which is not located right off I-90 but is in the center of town, however fairly easy to find, has the appearance from the exterior and the lobby that it is an older motel (eg the rotary phone in the lobby). However, the rooms appear to be newly renovated and/or well maintained over time. When I checked in, the clerk I dealt with was friendly and knowledgeable. The room I had was very spacious. They have a well-stocked breakfast buffet in the morning.

Hotel is dated, but you get what you pay for. There was hair in the tub. Good thing about it is it had two seperate rooms with the bathroom in the middle. Great hot breakfast. Had a good selection of food, including waffles.

It took awhile for the a/c to start working (78 degrees outside) but it finally kicked in. Nothing fancy, but it suffices, and in May, was reasonably priced. An ok place to stop if you are only passing through on the interstate.

"Pet Friendly, Good Location"

15/05/2017

We had stayed at the AmericInn last year, which was also nice and pet friendly, but this was a better option for us. We prefer rooms that have their own entrances and are close to a downtown for walking. The Best Western fit the bill. There were several restaurants very close, and a quaint little downtown that was fun to walk through. Trees were blooming and the dogwood in front of the post office smelled so sweet. Hotel is right on the river, but faces the other direction. Beds were comfy, and breakfast was good. There was a woman keeping the breakfast area very clean and food fresh. Parking lot was great for our truck pulling a trailer. Lots of vehicles with boats were parked there as well, fishing opener. Book early to get an outside room on ground floor. Highly recommend.

Super easy to fine, this motel was very homey, everyone was very friendly. The rooms were very quiet, and super clean. Beds a little hard, but I like plush. They were comfortable though. I absolutely loved the recliner, could have taken that one with me. The pool and hot tub(very hot) were clean and plenty of towels. Easy off the interstate, and a great choice. I would definitely stay here next time I'm in the area.

For the price of under 80.00 we got a quiet room with a king and queen bed (no special request for that). The room was huge, comfy beds and pillows. Hot water in shower. Check in was less than 4 minutes. Haven't had breakfast yet but the coffee in room was fine. Heated pool for all seasons use. Fish cleaning station outside near room 1 convenient for people using the Missouri River was a nice touch! Free WiFi and parking.

This motel is a few miles off the highway but if heading west, you continue across the bridge and back on to the main road. The motel is a bit older but you can see where they made some updates on the inside. The rooms aren't bad but nothing to write home about. They do include a free continental breakfast which is pretty solid and enough to get you going. I would stay here again if my travels require a night in Chamberlain, SD.

I have stayed at this location. Room was fair, it was roomy. People was nice. they tried to make it good. However hotel being very old everything was old. Sink in bathing area was not draining slow. Each time you had to use the faucet you had to wait for it tp drain. They did not have elevator to go to next level. Ice machine in the 1st level did not work so you had to go upstairs to fill you cooler. The young lady at the front desk did not know her town so she sent us to wrong place twice. Breakfast for the price was bellow average. So I recommend if it is not a problem drive to next town and stay there for the same amount of room rate.

My husband and I stayed in this motel September 28. About a week and a half later I realized I lost a ring. I contacted the motel. I described the ring. They thought they had it, sent me a picture of it and it was my ring! I was so happy. What a trustworthy person who cleaned our room and also the people at the desk! Thank you so much for your honesty. This ring means a lot to me and even more now because of the great staff at this motel!

People outside their rooms on the first floor smoking and talking so it was a gathering near our room. Toilet was very slow and you had to hold the handle to get it to flush, ugh!

Checked in with no reservation on Sunday . Nothing fancy but clean and good price .we got a suite which is 2 rooms sharing a bathroom with pocket doors between them both and was perfect for this party of 3.shower didn't have a lot of pressure but it did the job.One room had mino frig and a recliner, queen bed and the American legion memorial bridge over Missouri river visible in the rear window .Other room had queen bed with 2 chair table and both had small flat screen tv's .The restaurant across the street" upper crust" was so convenient with pizza and pasta and was by far my favorite pizza ever . And that's saying a lot .I'm over 50 ! Not fancy but gets the job done and was only 112.00 after tax for 3 to stay . Convenience store caddy corner to motel and FULL grocery with deli within 2 miles . Has free breakfast in the morning with: waffle bar, bagels and muffins, egg squares,bacon orange and apple juice, cinnamon rolls and cereal . Would definitely stay again. Was a Bentley parked in front of our room and it was safe all night. Quiet town and away from interstate noise.You feel safe there. Most occupants were like us,traveling to and from Custer State Park which is about 2 1/2 hours away .No smoking rooms but table and chairs out front here and there with ash trays.Free ice in lobby . Indoor pool and sauna. Gotta search out vending machines (on 2nd floor above front desk/ lobby ). Rated 4 stars per drains were a little slow and some rusty spots on bath tub. Clean and comfy though .

We were very happy we picked this hotel. The room price was very reasonable, and everything we saw was as clean as could be. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I was impressed with the variety available at breakfast--the usual toast, bagels, cereal etc. as well as hardboiled eggs, yogurt, fruit cups, a waffle station with different toppings (like Nutella!), bacon, French toast sticks and so on. On a road trip this is exactly the kind of hotel we hope we'll find. I highly recommend staying here.

06/09/2016

We received a nice rate at this Best Western Motor Inn and also received an upgrade when we arrived. It seems it is Best Western policy to not offer pack-n-play or cribs to their guests. They were accomodating and gave extra pillows and we made a make shift area for our little guy to sleep in and it worked perfectly. We used the pool and it was nice enough. It might be a good idea on the hotel's part to keep the door shut so bugs stay out however. Would stay again if in the area.

Stopped in Chamberlain due to the Al's Oasis signs along the Interstate looking for an over nights stay during our Cross County Road trip to Yellowstone. We were looking at Al's, but they had a catastrophic fire there in May and therefore had no rooms. They had signs for a resort, checked them but they had no rooms. So we crossed back over the river and found this Best Western. Best Western doesn't have a good reputation anymore, but this place just looked nice and well kept. The room we had was very nice, and the price was really great. Clean, comfortable, and affordable, just what we needed. The room was really nice, and quite, as next morning woke up and my wife opened the door and there was a strong thunder storm outside. Didn't hear this with the door shut, surprised. The room had everything we needed and really commented on how nice it was, and how we were proven wrong about Best Western. Kudo's to the Owner here at Lee's. Nice job, and I recommend this property to anyone.

The entire room smells of mold and musty. Plus we had an unexpected guest in our room a big fly. This place is in need of a an update. Went to get breakfast and the scrambled eggs are out. I asked about it and they said they weren't making any more and it was so early in the morning. I would avoid this hotel if possible.

"Not Fancy, Not Sleazy - Just Right"

21/08/2016

My husband and I stayed here overnight this past Friday. I like to stick with Best Westerns because, of all the chains, they seem to allow the owner to express more individuality in the brand. With that said, this motel definitely shows its individuality. I have nothing bad to say about the place, just that it needs some improvements. The room was clean, the shower was hot, and the bed was quite comfy. The problem is it's starting to show a bit of age. Some of the trim and fixtures could be jazzed up a bit. Maybe replace the drop ceiling in the room? A part of me liked the old school feeling of the place - enough so I Googled the motel and found an old postcard image. Not a lot has changed. Anyway... We would most definitely stay here again. The staff was friendly and accommodating (I needed a shower chair and one was readily available). The breakfast staff was friendly, though the variety was a bit lacking when compared to what I'm used to at other Best Westerns. Chamberlain's a great place and so is Lee's. Lee's just needs a bit of a reno - either modern it up or give it a cool retro vibe from when it was brand new.

"Oooh, the smell!"

1
15/08/2016

The room smelled so musty, it was overwhelming. My sister and I had to put lavender oil under our nose to try to make it through the night. The whole room would need to be updated, or at least maybe the carpet to get rid of the smell. My sister found a bug in her bed. The sheets on both beds also had stains on them. The bed skirts and fitted sheets must not stay on the bed since they have them safety-pinned down. To top it off, my sister found a bug in her bed. The front desk closed at 11:30, so when we tried to call about the bug, there was no one available to do anything. The tv remote also didn't work properly, as whenever you pushed a button, it didn't do what the button was supposed to do. Overall, we had a very crappy night and were super glad to get out of there in the morning.

This is we came back and had the very same room. Door fixed and so was the pool area. Actually I think it was much cleaner than I remembered. Even the restaurant across the street had turned a 180. Its very close to that very beautiful body of water. If you go there take a nice walk. Pet fee too high. $30.

Let's get the possible drawback out of the way now: two stories but no elevator. So leave that HEAVY bag in the car if you draw an upper room! We had Room 32 in the wing above the office--interior corridors in this wing. Other wing is exterior entry. Our room was quite small but not a problem. Had sink outside the bath/toilet area, which is a plus in my book. All fixtures looked new, all tile clean and whole, all carpets clean and new. Bed good with very good pillows. In short, just fine! Breakfast was typical -- nothing really good but edible. Staff pleasant.

Dated and tired appearing hotel with exterior facing doors that open out into the motor lodge. Adequate parking. Adequate breakfast chocked full of high carb and high calorie foods such as pastries, bagels, sweet cereal, French toast, cinnamon rolls, juice,coffee, as well as a small offering of healthier foods to include boiled eggs and bacon. Room is basic but met our needs. Do NOT expect fancy as you will not get it here. Room was clean but the toilet needs a good cleaning. Paint and plaster on the walls needs attention. Ice machine is located in the lobby. Soda machine is outside the lobby door. No elevator. All that said, there are few hotel choices in this area of SD. Here, you will get a clean and comfortable room at a price ($90/night) that should deliver more.

Came upon this motel when passing through town. Were very pleasantly surprised with our room (actually 2 bedrooms in one suite), everything was very clean both inside and outside, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Will definitely seek this out when in Chamberlain again.

Thank you, happy that you enjoyed the split room.

This hotel was welcome site after a long day of driving. When we stopped for the night we were looking for someplace that was not expensive and to get a goods night's rest before traveling on the next day. This hotel met and exceeded what we were looking for.

We just happened upon this hotel in Chamberlain and I was very pleased by the price and the friendly staff who checked us in. The town is charming to boot. No problems with WiFi. It's very clean and well-kept.

"No Wifi and No rain jacket"

Would NOT recommend. We arrived during a rain storm, ended up leaving my rain jacket in the hotel room. I had to call twice to actually get them to check the room, and they made me feel like I was asking a lot of them to go and check. Then they told me they didn't have it/never found it. 100% sure it was left there, but they weren't going to help. Also, the wifi never worked in the room, even the next morning after the rain had stopped.

"Stay AWAY!"

01/06/2016

I didn't want to even give a one star. Booked 2 weeks out after looking at photos and reviews. Arrived late afternoon and was shocked at the sight of the place. Took my chances and asked receptionist to look at room. My wife came in with me and immediately we were on the cell phone looking for other places. We used our cell phone for the simple reason they don't have phone books in the room. I did go back to office to ask for one, which brings me back to the receptionist, who was rude, short, and had a don't give a damn atitude. Our luck was so that no other hotels had openings and too much a drive for another city. No microwave, bathroom/shower so small that you had to back out to turn around! Pool is in a separate building across parking lot. Room had a damp, wet smell to it. Drive the extra distance to Radio City or Sioux Falls.

I needed a comfortable place to stay while driving cross country. Chamberlain is a nice town to stop in. This motel is very comfortable, very close to the river and to the services of the town. The motel seems to take pride in the maintenance and cleanliness of the facility

"Great Place"

Great place to stay after a long days drive. It's located in a small town and has a warm heart atmosphere. Front desk was very helpful in getting checked in to finding a great place to eat. To be honest wasn't expecting much but came away with a wonderful experience.

"Best Western - Chamberlain, SD"

When we first pulled into the property, I thought "Oh, no. What have we done?" The outside of the hotel was "iffy" looking but the lobby, breakfast area and our room were all very nice. It was quiet and clean and the bed was very comfortable. My only complaint was that the smoking area was in the parking lot right in front of our room. Not only am I a non-smoker but I am severely allergic to cigarette smoke. My concern was that the smoke would filter into our room but it did not and we were quite comfortable. Breakfast was good and check-out was fast.

Older motel but clean and comfortable. We liked the layout of the room. Two bedrooms with the bathroom in between. The breakfast was a disappointment. I guess if you don't care what you put in your mouth it was adequate.

thank you. Sorry you didn't enjoy breakfast we are trying new items and rotating them so it's not always the same.

We rented a double room right next to the river, Chamberlin in itself is a cute and quaint little town and I liked the 15 minutes it took to tour downtown ;) The hotel room was exactly what you would expect, the water pressure in the shower was great but the pool and the breakfast left a lot to be desired

For it being an older hotel it had the basics and was clean. We came in in the middle of a snow and it was starting to ice up so we were pretty happy they had a room for us.this is ridiculous that my review has to be 200 words since I said all that was nessuary

This is an older motor lodge but nice - - the rooms are dated and the beds are in need for replacing as we felt like were sleeping on a hill. Over all very clean. We walked across the street to a very nice Italian restaurant for dinner.

Sorry your bed wasn't comfortable we are in the process of replacing and remodeling rooms.

The employees of this hotel are exceptional. Everyone is friendly and ask how your stay is to this point. Premises are clean and I noticed someone is always cleaning and tidying up the property. The breakfast was excellent and the staff ensured the dining area was clean. The front desk people were friendly and knowledgeable about their community and points of interest

"Nice pool at friendly older motel"

The Best Western Lee's Motor Inn is immediately before the Missouri bridge heading West. It's a rather old fashioned motel, but is kept up to a good standard. The lady at the check-in was friendly offering advice on where might still be serving food late at night (Charly's), as well as arranging for the pool to be kept open a little later than normal so I could get a swim. It's an excellent indoor pool across the car park from the main motel. (If you are coming from the West, be aware it's in Central Time Zone, an hour ahead of sights like Mt. Rushmore or the Badlands NP). The room was comfortable enough, though there was a little noise transmitted between rooms. Breakfast was hot and good. Recommended as a stay close to I-90, but well away from the freeway traffic noise.

Karen S, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you, Glad we could keep the pool open for you.

Front desk was very pleasant and the beds slept well. The price was a little high for the location. There were a few flies in the room at the time of check in. The room was clean and roomy. The hotel in located in town a couple of miles off of I-90. There was a good pizza place within walking distance across from the hotel which made excellent salads.

Karen S, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes its that time of year for the flys to sneak in.

We've stayed here for several years as a group, and it never fails to be a great stay. Highly recommended if staying in the area for business or pleasure. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, and the pricing is commensurate with the area and the season, if not better, overall.

Karen S, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you, Andrew. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you next year.

Traveled by motorcycle. Rooms are outside access. Parked near door at ground floor room, which is good for security and old people not having to carry stuff off bike very far. Room and motel was average - decent but not special. Front desk person was good and helpful with questions. No complaints. I would stay here again. Room was $90, so price was high relative to its value compared to others on my 17 day adventure.

Location by the river is nice. Easy walking distance to downtown for a meal and shopping. Two blocks and you are there. Breakfast was mostly carbohydrates. Some bacon or scrambled eggs would be nice, rather than a sausage muffin. I would stay here again.

Karen S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Lee's Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We also have a great park over looking the Missouri River just two blocks away. We now have biscuits and gravy! Please come see us again soon.

"Bit by spider while sleeping"

Other than getting bit by a spider or something while sleeping the hotel was fine. Should have had refridge in room. Pizza place across the street was great. The place had nice apperance and rooms were very clean. The Bed was comfortable and the staff was nice. Breakfast was alright but I have had better at other hotels. They had Jimmy Dean breakfast egg and sausage to put in microwave. Not bad but not the best.

This is a older hotel and probably could use some sprucing up. The rooms could also use some redecorating, but the important thing is that it was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your review. We are in the process of sprucing things up. We will be doing more renovations this winter. Please come back and see what we have done.

This is the second time we have stayed at this facility and both times have been good. Quiet, comfortable, easy to find. Located close to the river with a nice riverwalk to take after supper. The people working here are friendly and the breakfast is excellent. A good price for a good night's sleep is what we look for, and we found it here.

"Restful Night"

22/09/2015

A truly restful night of sleep and a pretty good breakfast to get us started in the morning. Staff was very good and answered all our questions. A little hard to find, but worth it once found. Gas and store right across the street and a very nice view of the river out the back side of the building.

Don't expect the Hampton in. But for a small place its the right price. Clean. And across the street from the Upper Crust Resturant and a McDonald's. Right on the river. It just 5minutes off the interstate highway 90. If you pass the hotels off the exit stay on the road and drive into chamberlain.
