“Nice place, nice price”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Stayed one night during a Black Hills trip with my son and my parents. We stayed in the "hotel" which has 8 or so units. Very comfortable, clean rooms, well appointed. There is a little bit of a walk to the restaurant, playground and pool areas, but not bad. Tucked nicely in the trees. There is a little road noise, as you are right off the highway, but if windows are closed and air is on, you hardly hear anything. We didn't eat at the restaurant, so I can't help you out there. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Nice location, very close to Keystone. I'd stay again.

We spent 2 nights at the Powder House Lodge on our way home from Yellowstone. What a wonderful place to stay! We were in a duplex cabin #28 and it was perfect!! The king size bed was VERY comfortable! We ate a breakfast & a dinner while we were there, the food was outstanding! The staff was very friendly and helpful!. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. The Powder House Lodge should be your first place to stay when coming to the Black Hills. I know we will be back!!!

Room Tip: I think any cabin would be awesome!

What an AMAZING place to stay!! The atmosphere is great, the cabins are very comfortable, the restaurant has delicious food (i recommend the burgers), and the staff is the most friendly and helpful people I have ever met. Very genuine and peaceful place to stay. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. The Powder House Lodge should be your first place to stay when coming to the Black Hills. You will enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: These are furnished cabins. These are not hotel rooms, however they do have a 37 room motel on site...

We stayed three nights at the Powder House Lodge and we really enjoyed it. We stayed in the "Honeymoon Cabin" and loved that it was a little more secluded. It had a cute front porch swing that looked out over the hills behind the cabin. We drove all over the Black Hills and we think we made the best decision in staying here compared to all of the other lodging in the area. The lodge has a wonderful log cabin style restaurant as well - and we had great meals here! The cabin was very clean and the perfect size for my husband and I. It was just what we like... a cabin feel with a number of modern conveniences... like a clean little frig and microwave. There is a pool and we don't have kids - so one night there was a little too much kid screaming from the pool for us - but we understand that kids are kids and we dealt with it. We needed a few things during our stay and the staff helped us immediately. We really recommend staying here... for the location to all of the great sites, the cleanliness, the food... all of it.

Room Tip: Honeymoon cabin was great!!

We stayed in cabin 53 and it was great!! The rooms were clean and the views were pretty. Staff was great and the restaurant was fabulous!! Pool was nice too!! The beds in the lift were too short for our 12 and 8 year old, but our 8 yr old is also in the 90tg percentile for ht and wt. would def stay here again!!

Four years after our first stay, we returned to Powder House on our way home from a family vacation in MT. Once again, this place left us with wonderful memories. The food and lodging are remarkable! My husband and I stayed in Cabin 26, a small little cabin just above the restaurant parking lot. It was cute and clean, the bathroom appeared to be newly updated, and the king sized bed was super comfortable! Since it is near the parking lot and road, there is some noise that we were able to muffle out using the air conditioner/fan. Remembering the delicious food we ate at the restaurant four years earlier, we just had to try dinner there again. It still serves the BEST FOOD EVER! I tried the special of the day, buffalo medallions, which were done to perfection and melt-in-your-mouth tender. My husband had one of their specialties, bacon-wrapped buffalo meatloaf, which was equally delicious. We shared a dessert, cherry-rhubarb crisp, served warmed with ice cream! Superb! Thank you, Powder House Lodge and Restaurant, you have once-again delivered a lasting impression which will keep us coming back!

Great rate and service. Room was updated and had a comfortable bed. They have a very good restaurant. Very close to all the attractions and town. We will stay there again next time we go. The wifi in the room was a little week. We ended up tethered to our phone as it was a faster connection.
