We are a family of 6 that stayed in the sister property to Cedar Pass Lodge, The Badlands Inn Motel. It provided 2 beds and a standard bathroom and a fridge, which was convenient. We asked for an extra cot when I made the reservations and upon arrival there was a nice air bed set up & ready made for...

We stayed at the Lodge with our family of four plus my parents and we all raved about the experience. The cabins are perfect for folks who are not interested in rustic camping but enjoy more comfortable "gl-amping" experience. The cabins are beautiful, incredibly comfortable, environmentally considerate and have breath taking views. There is a great shop with Native American...

We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge as the beginning leg of our trip out west to see Badlands, Wind Cave, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Rocky Mtn National Park. We first had dinner there and the whole family loved the food. My son tried bison for the first time and my wife tried the "Sioux Taco, which was huge and...

Thi hotel was great! It was very clean, and provided a breathtaking view of the Badlands. The location is great, as it is right in the middle of the Badlands which made it easier to go on hikes, and explore. The service was great as well.

We were so glad we decided to begin our South Dakota adventure by staying in a cabin at Cedar Point Lodge. First, the location is perfect--- a view, jackrabbits in your yard, the restaurant and store nearby and easy access to going either direction on the loop. Next, the cabin itself was beautiful! Very new, clean, so attractively decorated with...

We stayed here for three nights while exploring the badlands. The duplex cabin we had was brand new, very spacious, had great views and tons of wildlife right outside the back door. There were porches and seating both in front and back and you could walk to the lodge restaurant/gift shop and the park visitor center. Restaurant food was reasonable...

We throughly enjoyed everything about the park and our stay here. The cabins were roomy, clean and quiet. My son described it as the best cabin ever! It was close to the store, ranger talks and ranger hikes. I would recommend these cabins to anyone. You will not be disappointed. Only regret was staying only one night!

The cabins were huge and comfy they had a large bathroom and plenty of room to move about! I would defiantly reckons to anyone who wants to visit the badlands. The food isn't great there but it's bearable. They are handicapped accessible for anyone wondering

The cabins at Cedar Pass are located in an area behind the restaurant and gift shop. The cabins are well air conditioned, and are fairly roomy. They have been remodeled to include wood furniture made from local woods by local craftsman. A small porch on the front has two wooden chairs. We spent some time in the evening sitting out...

While touring the badlands, we stopped at Cedar Pass Lodge restaurant for lunch. There was a considerable wait, but the place was very busy, so it was expected. We were seated and drink orders were taken. The food order took quite a bit of time however. The gift shop within the Lodge is very nice and worth the stop alone...
