Black Hills Mile Hi Motel
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Custer
Reviewed 25 July 2013

We chose this hotel because we were shopping for value--but also looking for cleanliness and good wi-fi. We found it here! It was small and the decor was dated--but it was clean and the service was good and friendly. I also like that it was centrally located among all of the National Park sites that we wanted to see. It's also right in the middle of the downtown area--within walking distance of the night life and shops. We would definitely stay here again.

This is our second time we stayed at Mile Hi and both times were wonderful. We actually ask for unit 6 it is my home away from home. Close to everything you would like to see or do, great restaurants close by, and the owners are wonderful. The best part is you get all this for a great price. Don't pass this gem up.

We have stayed at mile hi several times..A good place for a simple very clean very reasonable place to sleep...Pretty much no frills, but if you are looking for a modest priced place to just sleep, this would be it..Bathrooms are very small and the rooms are also pretty small...Not a place if you have kids who want action..Usually the staff has been very helpful..This time the lady behind the desk seemed to have no clue about the town...Needs to be better versed in local and area attractions/ places...Overall.. we'll be back here again...

Arriving in Custer sort of late in the evening during the summer months leaves you wondering if you will be able to find a place to stay. After discovering a lot of "no vacancy" signs, we came across a "YES" sign and quickly pulled in for a look see.

This little gem was such a surprise as at first it appears to be pretty much an old run down place but on closer inspection you can quickly see that the owners have taken a lot of pride in it and have been fixing things up very nicely.

I have no idea when this place was built and I'm not even going to guess but you will find that a lot of work has gone in to bringing it up to acceptable standards in many ways. New siding on all the buildings and the rooms have been completely gone through with upgrades that make the place almost look like it was built yesterday.

There were three of us looking for separate beds and wound up with two rooms both of which were very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were cleaner than a lot of rooms I've stayed in that have been built very recently! Everything was clean and well attended to and there were little thoughtful things around the room like a roll of paper towels - how thoughtful huh?

The rooms quickly cooled down with the new air conditioners that are installed and the new flat screen televisions worked perfectly. We were also pleased to be able to sit outside at a table and chairs to enjoy the evening and visit before retiring for the night.

I would recommend this little cottage style, friendly, welcoming, clean, comfortable motel to anyone who just wants a clean and reasonable place to spend the night.

Room Tip: The staff is happy and very willing to show you the room before you rent - they have nothing to hide...

This is the second year we have stayed here. Both times the motel did not disappoint. It is very clean, quiet and just what we wanted. There are restaurants near by and you can walk into the center of town for shopping. We will stay there every time we go to South Dakota.

We booked this hotel via Tripadvisor in the afternoon of our expected stay. We received a confirmation and printed it. About an hour before we arrived, we received a call saying there had been a "computer glitch" and they had rented our room to somebody else. Upon our request, the person who called did refer us to another hotel with an available room...for a much higher price. There was no offer to help negotiate the room rate or compensate us for the higher cost.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July. Spotless room, comfortable bed, fridge, TV, coffee in room, but no phone. Loved the small town atmosphere. Good central location for most Black Hills attractions. Very nice and helpful manager. Would most definitely stay at Mile Hi again.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and have parking right by the door to the room. Choose a room with 2 beds--one i...
