The only thing that I did not like was the fact that they do not have an elevator. The staff was outstanding...the breakfast was very good...The beds were very comfy and the rooms were clean...we stayed 2 days and would stay there again...

This hotel was one of the very few that offered military rate and had rooms available. And for the price the room was not bad at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was great. Also the location of the this hotel was very convenient to many of the attractions we had planned to see.

We stayed in what I presume was the older part of hotel. We were on 2nd floor with outside entrance. The balcony seemed tilted, but had a overhang for protection, which was good as it was raining. The room was OK, nothing special. The desk chair needed to be upgraded, as the covering on the arms moved. Room could've used... More

This hotel was very nice and close to Custer National Park, The staff was very caring and friendly. I really liked that they had the option of a suite with two rooms (three queen beds). It was very nice for our family of six.

Do not get a ground floor room as noise can occur from room above. Breakfast was very good and staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is on the way out of town but is still ok. Close to Custer State Park.

I wanted to give it a 4.5 star. The pros was a wonderful breakfast served by Bridget. It is conveniently located to many points of interest. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. It wasn't as expensive as the other ones. Love the hot tub/spa. Thumbs up for having an indoor pool. Con: Would have preferred the pool to be warmer.

We stayed here for 3 days and were very pleased. The property basically has two sections. One is with outside entrances and is single story, and the other has several floors with inside entrance. Our room was in the building with inside corridors as I do prefer them. The room was large, clean, and nicely done. The beds were great.... More

Great value. Clean room, comfortable bed. Simple, nice place to lay our heads after a long day seeing the amazing sites. We didn't want a luxurious room that we'd lounge in... so this fit the bill. Everything just right.

Stayed 4 nights while visiting Mt. Rushmore, Crazy horse, deadwood etc. Great breakfast, but crowded in breakfast area. We took ours to our room. Pool area looked good, we did not use it. Would recommend.
