Dakota Cowboy Inn
Ranked #15 of 18 Hotels in Custer
Reviewed 11 July 2012

We stayed in newer/upgraded Cowboy Inn part of the hotel. Room was very nice with 2 queens, frig & microwave. Hotel lobby and breakfast area is small and cramped. Free continental breakfast only included cereal, toast and juice (no hot items like waffles) and doesn't start until 7:00am. The front desk was very accommodating when we got there and found out there was an error in our reservation -- really appreciated their assistance in getting that straightened out. Ate dinner at Dakota Cowboy Restaurant next door -- highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a Value Club card from Americas Best Value Inn to take advantage of lower room rates.

somethings in life you cant put a price on, like quieter a/c, comforters that arent at least 30 years old, indoor ice makers, nice smelling rooms. plain and simple you get what you pay for! the wifi was horrible or not at all!!!!!!

Room Tip: get the rooms that face the main road as the sun wont shine in your room and wake you at 530am

The room was small, dark, more like a motel. It has some funny odor too.

We should book hotel in Rapid CIty or pick another hotel from Custer. If you have small kids with you, they will sur-charge you $4 each kid per night which is unheard of. (most hotel allow kids 13 or younger to stay for free).

I am surprised to see so many good reviews, maybe we talk about different hotel?

They have very minimum breakfast offer. There is a small grocery store not too far.

We stayed five nights. It was not crowded, the season was coming to a close. The non-smoking room was really nice, with a fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The A/C worked great. We had good parking. There is a good restaurant at the other side of the parking lot. It was a steal. Wish I could have played the croquet but ran out of time.

We stayed in the detached building. There were smoking rooms that people wanted too. We weren't in CA any more!

Room Tip: You need to say if you want smoking or non-smoking in the comment section when you book.

It was clean, good sized room with the queen beds.
The free breakfast was just toast, coffee and muffins but that's okay because the rate was a good price. The lady manager was very nice.
Stayed three nights and enjoyed them all. Their restaurant next door serves a delicious steak at a cheap price.
Would stay here again.
