This hotel was very welcoming! It was easy to find not far from Mount Rushmore. The price was excellent for a family room that sleeps 6. There was a balcony deck with use of gas grills and utensils. The view was very nice also. Had small continental breakfast. Very friendly. Would recommend to anyone!

We loved this place. We had reservations for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4 nights. We had to change rooms twice but the caretakers moved everything while we were out sightseeing for the day and they were glad to do it. They were very nice and friendly and accommodating. We started in a small room, moved to a...

The cabin was very clean, well located, and was well furnished. We enjoyed spending time on the deck admiring the spectacular views. The location worked well for visiting all the attractions. We hope to return soon.

Here is the good: clean hotel, location central to many of the area locations, reasonably priced. The not so good: the hotel is right off the main highway, so traffic noise. The room definitely didn't look like the website (no charming wood paneling on the walls). No WiFi in Room 2. Breakfast really sparse. Overall, OK stay.

Thank you for your review. We are happy you have found your accommodations clean for a fair price. We apologize for the Internet. Unfortunately the Internet services in our area are limited and options sparse. We are continually researching options. We do have a wired connection in the lobby.

Our family of 4 stayed in a cabin for two nights. We enjoyed the room to spread out- as we had mostly been staying in hotel rooms. The cabin itself was as pictured and suited our needs. There was a small but well stocked kitchenette that we barely touched. The kids were charmed by the loft. The bathroom is quite...

Loved this centrally located room in the Lodge area of the property. The room we stayed in was large enough for all 5 of us (2 adults, 3 kids). It was super clean and the owners were very kind and helpful. If you are looking for a centrally located place while you see all of the sights in South Dakota,...

We just returned from the Black Hills and had a wonderful time. It is a fantastic family destination. A huge reason why this is so is because we stayed at Mountain View Lodge and Cabins. Two years ago, we stayed at a cabin that had a separate bedroom and a little loft. This time we stayed in a duplex that...

Great location and a great price! Super affordable! About 20 minutes to Mount Rushmore, 30 minutes to Custer state park, 45 minutes to Windcave, and 1 hour to hot springs. Decor was awesome, gave a real cabin feel that I thought was perfect for the black hills! Room was super clean! Kitchenette in the room was AMAZING! It included a...

We enjoyed staying here. The owners are helpful and friendly. We had 7 in our group and rented the Duplex Cabin. There was enough room for everyone to have a place to sleep, and a kitchen area to cook meals to save money on going out to eat.

We stayed at the hotel for one night passing through on vacation not looking to spend a lot of money. The location is convenient and just a short drive to keystone, mount rushmore, and crazy horse memorial. The beds weren't too comfortable, but worked fine. The shower was tiny and would have been near impossible if I was hoping to...
