Bavarian Inn, Black Hills

Certificate of Excellence

We enjoy Bavarian atmosphere and we found it here amongst the Black Hills. Nice room, neat Bavarian restaurant on the premises and nestled in the mountains, what's not to like?
Also a central local to almost everything!

My daughter and I stayed here with three kids. We reserved the queen deluxe room and I am glad we did. The room had extra space that we needed (big enough that there was still room even with a roll away!). There is an inside pool and hot tub as well as an outside pool. The kids loved it. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was OK....the food was just average. If you go with kids, check out other places to eat. Definitely glad we stayed here...highly recommend it.

The location is perfect for touring the Black Hills area, and the beautiful surroundings include a walking trail, indoor and outdoor pools, and plenty of chairs and tables outdoors to enjoy the pleasant weather. For our group (2 couples and one single) the rooms were comfortable and kept very clean. At breakfast time, the waffle line tended to be long, but there were plenty of alternatives and everyone was patient since the result was delicious. We had a nice dinner at the restaurant next-door to the inn.
Marcel and Sherry as well as all the personnel were welcoming, knowledgeable and pleasant and made us feel at home. Marcel was particularly helpful with suggestions for itineraries and less famous must-see attractions. A big thank you to all the staff. (Go Brazil!)

My granddaughter and I recently stayed 4 days and 3 nights and were both perfectly comfortable and satisfied with our room and it's amenities. The location was ideal for traveling to the sites we came to South Dakota to see (Jewel Cave, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Reptile Gardens, Cosmos, 1880 Train Ride, to name a few....)
We had a spectacular time there in the Black Hills and our lodging was a comfort to come back to at the end of each day.
Every staff member we encountered during our stay was very kind, friendly and helpful anywhere from the early morning hours to the late night hours. I'm assuming the owners MUST be great people to work for as their employees really did a wonderful job representing the Hotel with their welcoming, pleasant attitudes...and were very knowledgeable also!
Specifically regarding the room...Our room was on the back side of the hotel and VERY quiet. The bed was VERY comfy and clean. There were three things I noticed that could have improved the room just a little more..
1. The bathtub felt slippery. Not enough "gripper" surface. 2. I was surprised there was no chain lock on the inside of the door. 3. A towel bar next to sink would have been nice. But Hey! Those things certainly did not impact the comfort of our stay!
I highly recommend the Bavarian Inn and will definitely stay again and again!

Room Tip: The photos of the Hotel show small balconies which we assumed would be a little more "private&q...

Comfortable beds, clean rooms and quiet area of town. Staff were friendly, breakfast is standard hotel offering. Breakfast area is a little cramped and lines form quickly for breakfast servings. It is not a 5-star resort but an affordable option that we were very pleased to stay at. We would stay there again. The restaurant is very good and reasonably priced even though the setting is outdated. Laundry room area is messy but usable....3 washers and 3 dryers (1 of each was out of order). Overall.....the hotel and grounds are outdated but was clean and comfortable for what it was. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Try to get the building on the far side (across from Forest Service bldg.) and get the rooms on the...

Our room fit the five of us very comfortably. We had the most amazing view. I loved the double doors it made the room bright and provided fresh air. The breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect, right in between Custar and Mt . Rushmore. I had the most amazing experience thanks to you guys. We will allways come back and refer as many people as we can.

My wife, 4 children and I recently stayed here and I highly recommend it. The rooms are adequate and the staff and surroundings are beyond top rate. Perfectly located in the middle of the Black Hills, this acted as a great base for visiting all of the nearby attractions and beauty. The staff were fountains of knowledge for recommending the best sights, horseback services, and local highlights. We spent a day in the pool and even time on the tennis courts. My kids especially adored the giant rock that sits halfway in the lobby and halfway in the pool area. All in all, it provided great lodgings for a great family vacation.
