“The Gateway to the Hills!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

For those who are not very familiar with the Black Hills area and looking to see and do it all, you couldn't ask for a better location than the Bavarian Inn. The closest hotel to Crazy Horse, minutes away from scenic Custer state park, Mount Rushmore, countless black hills caverns, you name it. Just a few minutes from town but just far enough that you'll feel as though you're tucked way back into the hills. Aside from its paradisiacal location which offers an untouched view of the night sky, the staff was among the most accommodating I'd ever met and I felt like the rooms were extremely clean. Even if you're like me and you've known the Hills you're whole life, the Bavarian Inn in Custer will be the perfect base camp for your next adventure. Super friendly, super clean, super nice place. Highly recommend checking it out!

The Bavarian Inn has the comforts of being home from when you first walk into their beautiful lobby and are greeted by their awesome staff to going to your clean comfortable room, the awesome pool and hot tub area, or relaxing on the fitness trail. Its a beautiful little "resort". Love the microwaves and refrigerators in the room, very helpful when traveling with kids. We had a great time and will definately return. Thanks for the memorable stay!

Room Tip: We had the Queen Deluxe and talk about spacious! The room was huge!

Beautiful setting in the Black Hills with many things to do and see close by and numerous activities on site two pools, tennis court, game room, & trails. A very clean and friendly hotel. We will defiantly be returning to the Bavarian Inn. We were given top customer care by the entire staff.

We checked in on Sunday during some bad weather. Staff is super friendly and they go out of their way to be accommodating. This place is magic. Rooms are clean and comfy. Hot tub and pool are exquisite. Very reasonable prices. Everyone should stay here. Just right outside of town.

Cycled the Mickelson trail with friends from Cuter to Edgemont and everyone stayed at another motel that I felt was overpriced, so I found the Bavarian Inn and was taken with their more than fair prices and excellent reviews. Arrived to find a lobby in the midst of renovation and a very friendly host, Marcel. He and Sherry had just bought the place a few weeks prior, and they've got it running smooth. Friendly atmosphere, clean rooms, and an aboslutely awesome setting. My wife and I loved the fact that the motel sits just outside of town, so you don't get the town lights or noises. Will definitely be back next time we head to the Black Hills.
