“great rooms and excellent customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Enjoyed spacious, clean, and reasonably priced rooms with 2 Q beds with lots of pillows, a microwave, refrigerator and tub/shower with a rubber duckie!
The pleasant, responsive, helpful staff and new attentive owners added to our enjoyable visit to Custer for the VFW & VFW Ladies Aux State Convention. Enjoyed having tasty German cuisine including delicious strudel which was large enough share! Thank You.
Sue Lund

Room Tip: back building ground floor most private and easily accessible.

Dear Sue,

It was such an honor and a pleasure hosting the VFW group at the Bavarian Inn. We enjoyed getting to know so many members of the group. Thank you so much for all the kind words about your stay at the Bavarian Inn. I'm so happy you enjoyed the German Rubber Duckie as well. We hope to see you again soon.

The friendly staff make this stay very enjoyable. The Inn was very nice, clean and quiet with comfortable beds and lots of pillows. We did enjoy the pool and hot tub. The breakfast is good with fresh fruit and good coffee. The staff are super friendly. We enjoyed walking the fitness trail behind the Inn. The location was great since we were going to Custer State Park and Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. My only complaint would be the sinks in the rooms are set really low and I am a tall person but I would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Rooms on back side more private and less traffic noise if wanting to sit outside on chairs and table...

I am laying in bed at 0830 but have been awake since 0630 listening to the pipes knock and waiting for the people upstairs to come through the floor. Dogs barking in one of the rooms next door since 0800 (our room has a NO PETS sign posted) and house keeping has attempted to enter the room already (check out is at noon). The room was clean and the tub was much appreciated. The Restaurant on premisis was no more than your local pub. The only saving grace.....the staff at check in and during dinner were amazing. Don't come here if you want peace and quiet.

We enjoyed our stay at the Bavarian Inn and recommend it to anyone visiting the Custer area. The rooms are spacious and give the guests a luxurious feel at a reasonable price. Sherry and Marcel were perfect hosts and their friendly nature made us feel like part of their family.

We enjoyed the indoor pool and hiking trail. The Inn also provides an outdoor pool and tennis courts. The Bavarian Restaurant features menu style dining with home made traditional alpine meals and American entrees. Thanks to Russ and Rose, the food was EXCELLENT!

Thanks for an awesome stay!

We were on our way to hot springs sd but realized we had booked a bed and breakfast in Hot Springs, Ak. So, we pulled into the Bavarian Inn with no expectations. We were very pleasantly greeted and offered warm chocolate cookies. The room was reasonable with a king bed standard. Very clean. Excellent sheets. Good tv. We ate at the adjoining restaurant also the Bavarian Inn and were very pleasantly surprised. Excellent schnitzels. Crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Red cabbage was great too. The apple strudel was also made from scratch and was amazing. I would order it without the whipped cream however. The owner was charming and service very nice as well. Very reasonable. Don't miss it

Room Tip: No room service. Not a suprise

Staff was very friendly, beds were comfortable, rooms were very clean and the patio set was great for enjoying the fresh smell of the pine trees Ann enjoying a cup of coffee. The continental breakfast was super for jump starting your morning. The fresh fruit was perfect. Indoor pool and game room provide entertainment and is very near Crazy Horse Memorial and Mt. Rushmore. Will definitely stay again!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Bavarian Inn in Custer. These new owners have done much work with the place. Much work remains.

But the owners and their staff are what make the place. All are friendly and very helpful.
