Best Motel Ever....
Stayed here on our way from home in Boulder to the Black Hills on a mini-road-trip in early October. Accommodation was hotel rather than motel standard. Even little flowers tucked into the neatly folded washcloths. So good we stayed again on our way home.
Each room was of a good size with either one king or two queens. Very comfortable beds and extra blankets provided. And good bedside reading lamps - very important. Decent quality towels and little extras in the bathroom like make-up remover pads, as well as the usual shampoo, conditioner, lotion etc. Plenty of room for two small armchairs and a table, and refrigerator and cable TV. Happy to find out that the heating/cooling system was quiet - not always the case in motels.
The breakfast was outstanding. We missed the chuck-wagon breakfast because we were off-season, but were very impressed with the variety and quality of offerings. Various hot dishes - eggs, potatoes etc. that were replenished frequently, yoghurts, oatmeal, various teas, excellent coffee, bagels, waffles, and, perhaps best of all, real china and silverware. A small breakfast area, but immaculately clean, with dirty dishes removed promptly. Refrigerated water bottles available for the day, as well as fresh fruit.
Perhaps the best aspect of the Pioneer was the staff, including the owner. Everyone we came across, including the janitors and maids, were friendly and helpful. We've never given a tip to a motel handyman before, but this time he was included when we left. And a surprise when leaving in the morning - found out that the three middle-aged Harley guys, had had a pretty wild night in the room next to ours - and the soundproofing was so good we heard not a sound.
Don't know that I'd drive to Lusk just to stay at the Pioneer - but pretty close! less
