Chalet Motel
Ranked #15 of 18 Hotels in Custer
Reviewed 6 July 2014

A group of us visit the Black Hills every year.
I found Chalet Motel on trip advisor. I couldn't be happier with everything at Chalet Motel.
The price is very affordable, the rooms are with microwave,fridge and coffee.
We had a small kitchen in ours which made it very nice for breakfast in the morning before riding.
The area outside the rooms made it great for pulling up chairs and hanging out.
Grocery store. shopping, restaurants and a gas station that offers a few casino machines within walking distance.
Short ride to Crazy Horse, Mt. Rushmore, Custer State park.
Vern and Karen ( owners ) are awesome people and go out of their way to make you feel very welcome.
Our group decided this is where we will be staying as our base for our yearly family gathering.
I am so happy I found this on trip advisor!
Great place to stay!

We were lucky enough to find this gem of a motel in the middle of the Black Hills. The owners, Karen and Vernon were on site, hard working and very friendly.We were there during bike week-every morning, there were towels on our bikes, bike friendly towels delivered every afternoon. Most of the folks staying were bikers..one very nice group of folks. The rooms were small and cozy, bed was comfortable, flat screen television and very clean. We have already made our reservations for next year and will continue to return yearly as long as we are able. We have stayed in several different hotels in Custer; this was by far, the best and most friendly! In addition, probably the only hotel/motel that does not raise prices during "special" events. Whenever we return to Custer, we now have a home!Thanks Karen and Vernon for welcoming us your "traveling" family!

This motel was an excellent find on our roadtrip, immaculately clean and well cared for, for a great price. The room was small, but more than adequate for a solo traveller or couple - I believe we had one of the smaller rooms which we were told about ahead of time. The owners were all friendly and helpful, and the Chalet is easy walking distance to several restaurants and a grocery store.

Just returned from 5 nights at the Chalet. Very nice "Mom and Pop" operation run by some very nice people. Search of area hotels for 4th of July week produced outrageous prices and few vacancies. The Chalet was a great find. No complaints. Good sized rooms (small bathrooms); comfortable beds; flatscreen TV; quiet; all impeccably CLEAN. Four Circle rating, rather than 5 is primarily due to absence of fridg and coffee maker in our room. Otherwise, we (and our friends in the adjoining cabin) had no complaints. The location is excellent, and Vern's recommendation of the place the locals go for breakfast was a big plus. "Our Place" just a few blocks down the road had a very broad breakfast menu, incredibly low prices, great service, and wonderful people watching. We went there every day for our 5 day stay.

Stayed for two nights. The motel is run by a family who obviously take pride in what they do. Very clean. Short walk of five minutes and you are in the middle of town. For staying in Custer and seeing the black hills I could not imagine a better value. And after calling every motel and hotel in the area there is nothing to compare to a clean room and pleasant service at these rates.
