This has been my favourite motel so far. Room was comfy and was plenty big enough with homey touches. Our room had a view of the hills and there were little tables and chairs to sit out on. Breakfast was varied with DIY toast and spreads, delicious homemade muffins, cereals, fruit and juice. There are a couple of eating establishments over the road however the motel is a 5 min drive from the Main Street. Couldn't fault cleanliness or service - was everything we needed at a great price.

Room Tip: They all appear to be front facing rooms with a great view. Make sure you try the Alpine inn in the...

We have visited the Black Hills 6 times, and stayed at economy hotels through out the hills. This lodge is probably the best we have stayed at in this price range.The rooms were spotless and in great repair. We loved the walk out deck and outdoor gas grills. Nice friendly staff, great central location, we will stay there again sometime. We stayed the week after the bike rally, and found the hills to be back to normal tourist numbers.

We had a wonderful time at the Mountain View Lodge. The in-keepers where very friendly and helpful. We decided to stay an extra night and they were able to accommodate us. Wonderful location close to Hill City and Keystone. It is off a busy road that can be noisy but for the value I would stay again and recommend to others. The rooms are not fancy but have all you need, comfy beds, TV, mini fridge, and microwave. Also on the large covered deck are gas grills that I will be using next time I stay, it would have saved us a bunch of money would we had brought food to grill. The free breakfast of cereal, toast, donuts OJ and coffee was perfect to start our day. The pool is small but felt wonderful after a long day of site seeing. Across the street is a Ice Cream shop and Putt-Putt.

We stayed here with our family of four the last week in August. It's the perfect central location for all the black hills touring. We had a large room, two queen beds and one single beds. Tons of room and very clean. The large deck was great for relaxing and visiting with neighbours. the staff was very helpful. Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: We had room 107, right on the centre part of the deck.

I really didn't know what to expect from Mountain View Lodge and Cabins. We had the best time here. The staff are very nice and welcoming. The value was great and one of the greatest perks is the deck off the front of the rooms. There is room to sit and relax and they offer 2 gas grills for cooking out during your stay. There is noise from the highway but not enough to bother us. Location is perfect for taking in the area sites. Very very clean rooms. I would highly recommend Mountain View lodge & Cabins!

Tiny room, very low ceiling one window with a termite colony outside the only window in the bathroom. No privacy. The DVR advertised came in a box and didn't work. The pool is the size of a postage stamp. Just stay away

We are a small family owned and operated lodging business and we take great pride in our excellent customer service and exceptional cleanliness. We would like to clarify each of the customer comments in the following paragraph.

• Room Size: The room is adequately sized to hold the following furnishings (2 queen beds, reclining chair, microwave/refrigerator, and bedside table with lamp and alarm clock.

• Smell: We thoroughly clean the room (including linens), bathroom (including towels, bathmat, and shower curtain), and furniture after each guest use. Additionally, we steam the carpets periodically. We keep our rooms exceptionally clean and fresh smelling.

• Windows: The main room has a large (6’ wide by 4’ tall) window with light blocking curtains that can be opened. The bathroom has a smaller (20” by 30”) window with blinds that can be opened.

• Termites: There are no termites on our property. We have our property inspected and sprayed for insects monthly by a reputable pest control company.

• DVD player: We have several DVD players available for guest use. We are not aware of any of them that do not work. We would be glad to help connect the DVD player to the flat screen TV. If for some reason, the player did not work, we would be glad to replace it with one that does.

• Pool: Our pool is 12' wide by 26' long. It has steps on one end (3.5' deep) and tapers down to 5' deep. The outdoor heated swimming pool is used and enjoyed by many families (adults and children) each season.

Thank you for taking the time to read our responses/clarifications. If you have any questions you may contact us any time.
