    The Big Sky lodge is a lovely, clean motel with very friendly & obliging staff. We enjoyed the hot tub whilst looking over Rapid City lights. Loved cooking out dinner on the BBQ- thank you Big Sky staff for a lovely 3 day stay.

    No restaurant on site. But many are within ten minutes. They do have free continental breakfast from 7-9:30 daily.

    I can't speak for the hotel, but it's low season so I would think availability would not be a problem. We were in a nonsmoking room by choice.
