Looking for a unique place to stay in South Dakota? Nestled between the famous Wall Drug and the scenic Badlands National Park sits Frontier Cabins Motel. Located off I-90, the motel is a great option if you are looking for a central location to many of South Dakota’s main attractions.
The main store and front desk houses an array of merchandise. From handmade Native American jewelry to South Dakota made products, there is a lot to look at. The staff is friendly and will surely greet you with a smile.
There are thirty-three log cabins –placed in a cul-de-sac form – which are fully equipped with all the common amenities and decorated in a woodsy style. Log bed frames and bed-side tables are paired with log dressers and wrought iron lamps. To top off the rustic décor, each of the cabins has a front porch complete with log seating.
Set up in the center of the cul-de-sac of cabins is a play area for children – who stay for free if they are under the age of 12. They will have a blast on the swings, slides and open forts. While they are running around after a long day in the car, adults can sit in the gazebo which holds a bar, as well as a grill and hot tub.
After a peaceful night’s sleep, guests can go to the main store where there is a free continental breakfast. There are so many options to choose from; coffee, juice or milk can accompany bagels, muffins, donuts, etc. If you are looking for other dining options, Wall has restaurants located a few short blocks away.
After a day of touring and traveling in South Dakota, the Frontier Cabins Motel is a great, unique option for lodging that you are sure to enjoy.
