We were going to stay in Custer, but after reading other trip advisor reviews I changed to this Best Western. Soooo glad I did. This Is one of the nicest BW's we have ever stayed in. Location is perfect for all the sightseeing of parks etc. The breakfast was very nice with a large selection. The on sight restaurant was very good. They had a lot of amenities (two pools indoor/outdoor). Rooms are large. You can't beat it for the price. You can walk to downtown in 2 minutes. We hiked the Mickelson trail one morning also (right outside hotel). Definitely will stay here again when we come back.

The Golden Spike Inn has been a place we have visited over the past 15 years. It keeps getting better and better. We have stayed in basic rooms as well as the two queen suite we are enjoying on this current trip. Laundry facilities are available, staff is courteous. No need goes unmet.

There are some two bedroom condos with full kitchens associated with this property, but you have to call to ask about them. We have stayed there with family and it was absolutely wonderful. The pool area is fantastic. There is a deck off the restaurant that is great for breakfast or cocktails, etc.

In Hill city, you are in the heart of every attraction. Everything is easily accessible, and the town offers a lot, too.

This trip, we took a free trolley ride on the George S Mickelson trail that was offered by the Chamber of Commerce. Be sure to check the website to make reservations. We were able to get in due to last-minute cancellations.

It always humbles us to hear from our guests that they would love to return again. Turning a guest into a friend is never an easy task, but we look forward to another great 15 years together!

From the time I started arranging accomodations for a family reunion the communication and service was a pleasure. The location is central to many types of activity, with beautiful surroundings. Hotel was comfortable and the facilities, including the full hot breakfest were above average.

I've always found that the hardest part of a family reunion was being able to still laugh at the "taking my thumb off" magic trick, my great uncle pulls every year.. It was wonderful for everyone here at the Golden Spike to be able to host your reunion. You have a fantastic family and hope to see you with us again at some future point.

Pet friendly, clean, comfy and nice pools/spa. After a disapointing night in Deadwood we were very pleased to spend our next two nights at this hotel. Our only disapointment was the "deluxe hot breakfast" powdered eggs! Yuck! Good coffee though.

Your review is very much appreciated. While our eggs aren't powdered, we have noticed a trend that several guests find them distasteful and are looking into alternatives. We hope you'll give us another chance to get it right for you.

The friendliness of the staff was A+. That along with the cleanliness of the guest room and the great price, places this hotel in a "must come back" category!! Location to Monuments/things to do was ideal. A short pleasant walk into the town of Hill City. We needed an extra night, and the staff worked their magic and arranged for us to keep our room for two nights!!

We had a suite in building A and were very happy with the quality of the room, the breakfast and the facilities. While it's not a 5 star hotel, it gets 5 stars from me. We travel casual and the location and amenities were just what we needed.

Enjoyed our stay at Golden Spike very much. Friendly/helpful staff from the front desk to breakfast area and beyond. Ask for the sheet of pre-printed directions they have for the area sights - Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, etc., very helpful.

We couldn't believe the amount of food at breakfast. The variety and selection is the biggest and tastiest we've come across. One morning nice generous slices of ham; with a great flavor and not salty. Next morning sausage links. Every morning is eggs, biscuits & gravy, cereal, oatmeal and waffle maker. I can't remember all they had but believe me it was a popular place each morning and the staff keeps the refills coming out along with a smile and asking if you need anything. Now that we are home, sure do miss that breakfast!

They also had the softest most wonderful towels of our trip. The bed linens were a good quality and plenty of pillows.

We were in the older original building but the room had been updated at sometime and we found it to be very comfortable. Walked over to the newer building where people were enjoying the indoor pool. We used the small workout room, just a few machines but with a TV on the wall to watch while doing your walk.

We didn't take advantage but there is a small area just off the lobby with home-made pies, cookies, etc. as well as ice cream, etc.

This is in a good location for Hill City with a grocery store within walking distance. We would definitely stay here when in the area again.
