We decided to take our 4 adult kids to the Black Hills just for a short vacation. We'd looked at the weather so were prepared for the cold temps and brought warm clothing. It snowed Thursday evening and we woke to a beautiful blanket of snow. It was AMAZING! Our cabin was the Top/Bottom cabin and it was just fine...

Cabin #17 was just fabulous! The inside and out were super clean and cozy. Great rustic relaxing feel, and the cabin came with everything you would ever need...air, heater, fridge, tv, microwave, deck table, grill, campfire spot, dishes, towels, coffee pot and supplies, etc, etc. Not to mention the location was super handy and the view was beautiful! I'm looking...

Thank you for your review of our lodge and cabins. The "small cabins" are cozy and perfect for the ideal cabin lodging experience. For touring and getting to places without spending the whole day in the car, we are in a great location. We look forward to your next visit!

We stayed 4 nights. It was clean, centrally located, friendly staff, and a good value for the price. You have to ask for clean linens and the wall unit a little loud... but we would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Mountain View Lodge for two nights in mid-May. The Lodge appears to be an older motor lodge that has been refurbished. Our room, with 2 queen beds and a recliner, was spare but comfortable. It was immaculately clean and seemed to have been recently updated as it had new carpet, flooring and furniture. There was a...

Very clean and quaint room. Super friendly owners/staff. Small basic continental breakfast served in the morning. Room includes microwave and mini fridge. Rooms are decorated in a very rustic manner. Our room had two queen beds and a futon couch. Plenty of room for a family of four or five.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge. The room was not too big but not too small. There were extra blankets and a heater in the room. The light breakfast was provided. There is a grill that you can use. The owners take good care of their lodge and cabins. It was clean and cozy. The view from the balcony...

It was good for value. The property is right beside the highway but we were tired we didn´t notice if there was any noise at all from the traffic. Microwave oven and fridge in the room. Staff was nice. Wonderful place. Would´ve loved to stay another night to explore the area as well. Unfortunately, we were just passing through.

This is a very sweet mountain motel nestled in the Black Hills near Mt. Rushmore. It's just past Hill City, but it's not that far. The owners are great and the rooms are exactly what you would expect from a mountain hide-away. The only draw back is the lack of wifi, which is not the motel's fault. There's no cable...

Thank you for your review! Nestled in the Black Hills, we are definitely a "get away from it all" lodging option. We also wish the wifi signal was stronger, and are always researching ways to improve this for our guests. We are glad you were able to relax and enjoy your time!
