My wife and I stayed two nights as part of our American road trip. The location of the lodge is perfect with an amazing back drop of the Badlands. The cabins are absolutely perfect, spacious and private.
Check in was a little bit of a hassle but that turned out to be my fault. We turned up at 4:20pm only to be told the cabin wasn't ready. However, it turned out I forgotten to correct my watch by an hour and it was only 3:20pm.
The receptionist saw the funny side and we had a coffee while he sorted it out and sure enough 10 minutes later he came to us and said all was ready.
The Badlands rangers really make the place special however. Their visitor centre is right next door and they give evening presentations and on some nights star gazing talks with the aid of telescopes. Their enthusiasm is amazing and really made our stay special.
Then of course you have the amazing Badlands which is just such a special place.
Having read reviews of the restaurant at Cedar Pass Lodge we brought much of our food with is. The rooms have a good fridge and microwave and we enjoyed breakfast on the cabin patio.
We did eat once in the restaurant and it wasn't good. My bowl of chilli and French fries was luke warm at best and my wife's chicken wrap was bland. Service wasn't great either.
I would really love to stay at Cedar Pass Lodge again but would definitely bring my own supplies.
