When planning my vacation to South Dakota and Wyoming several months ago, I learned about the Battle Creek Lodge on TripAdvisor.com. After reading all of the wonderful reviews, I decided to make a reservation to stay here during my Summer vacation. I just returned from South Dakota today and I wanted to let everyone know that I had a wonderful experience from the time I walked into the Battle Creek Lodge until the moment I left. I loved this place! What a warm, cozy, and friendly atmosphere. During my short stay, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with Tammy several times. I can not thank Tammy enough for all of the great tourist information she gave me on Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Devil's Tower, Mt. Moriah Cemetary, and even her suggestion to bring my postcards into the post office in Keystone for the special Mount Rushmore cancellation stamp. I fell in love with this place. If I ever get back out there, I will absolutely, without a doubt stay here again. In addition, I'll be sure to recommend the Battle Creek Lodge to anyone I know who will be staying here. Tammy - thanks again for making my stay so wonderful!

It is nice to hear that my "travel advice" was helpful. Sometimes you can't help but wonder if people enjoy the tips you give or if they think "that lady at the motel was crazy!"
One of the great things about a 9 room lodge is that we really do get the opportunity to visit with our guests. We get to know what they are interested in - where they are headed - and we can assist in helping them plan the best route to take and the best way to use the precious time they have. In addition, we have tried to set up the lodge in a way that promotes interaction with other guests -- as we have found that our guests are often the best source of information to each other.
Again - Thank you for staying with us, your amazing review, and your "referrals"...... we are sincere in saying that we hope you will pass our way again -- we have all the "advice" you could ever need (and more!)
Take Care ~ and as always.....
