There are not a lot of places to stay here and this one is very convenient located outside the park. We had beautiful views of the Badlands. We were on the second floor, rooms 21 & 22. The rooms were very spacious, clean with very comfortable beds. Our beds were seemed brand new so I'm surprised another poster said they were bad. While it may not look very grand, it was a very nice stay. The staff is very friendly, and you get a free bag of ice with every room, helpful to keep our beer cold while we sat on the balcony outside our room admiring the view. Had dinner at cedar pass lodge, the Fry bread was great! There's a mini grocery store and bar a mile down the road where we could buy beer and snacks. The continental breakfast was decent too. More than I expected with breads, bagels and English muffins, yogurt, fruit, various cereals and juices. Air conditioning was great after a long hot day in the park. I would definitely recommend as a nice place to stay.
