We stayed here one night during off season on our way to the black hills. The owner called me ahead of time to make sure she was around when we arrived. The giant gift shop was not yet open and she informed me that breakfast would not be available due to the off season so she reduced the price of...

My sister and I do an annual trip to South Dakota. We often stay overnight in Wall and happened upon these cabins about 7 years ago. The cabins are always clean and the furnishings are beautiful. From the great log furniture to the luxury linens this place can't be beat. Thought that the place would deteriorate over the years but...

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and everything we needed. Had a great time! We will for sure be booking this place next year for our annual antelope hunt. Plan on reserving several cabins and have a great time!

We've stayed here several times on trips to SD. The cabins are quite nice with authentic log home furnishings and accessories. Property seems to be well maintained although our door wouldn't latch properly without some effort. Nice to be able to park right next to room. The pros: - kind of unique lodging - nice rooms & furnishings - pretty...

The wife and I on our 2 week cross country trip pulled up into Wall, SD at about 7 pm. We came to do the Badlands NP and saw the Frontier Cabins. We decided to book a room and so glad we did. The place is so quaint, cute, cozy, and comfortable. Decorated so well, positioned in a gorgeous little...

We spent 2 nights in Cabin #44 (Master King Cabin) during the third week of September and it had some issues. Cabin #44 faces highway 240 and the road noise was quite noticeable between the hours of 5:30 am and 10 pm. The Carrier window/wall air conditioner worked well but was loud enough that it would frequently wake us up...

Thank you for staying at Frontier Cabin Motel and for sharing your impressions with us. We take the comfort and style of our cabins very seriously and we do not feel that our facility should not be compared to another facility, but evaluated on its own merit. Just this spring we installed new carpeting, bedspreads, towels, wash cloths and area...

Slow season...cabin was clean, cozy, comfortable. Actually wished we spent two nights instead of one. Great access to Wall (Wall Drug takes 20 minutes) and Badlands. Get to the Badlands for sunset. Breakfast was simple but good. I did not like the smoking 'buckets' outside each cabin. They were clean but just the thought.... West facing get the sunset. Do...

Anniversary trip to the Badlands. The cabins are on the road that takes you directly to the park, 8 miles away. Dining, gas and groceries are just a couple miles away on the other side of the Interstate. We stayed in one of the larger cabins with a kitchenette. Size of the cabin was just right.

As a storm was brewing over Rt. #90, we decided to look for a place to stay in Wall. I called Frontier Cabins, based on the other reviews on Trip Advisor, and she said that they only had two places left. I am so glad I called ahead and booked our cabin. We had an easy check in, got our...

Quiet, clean, nice breakfast options, and friendly staff. This is the best option in Wall. Especially if you have children (we didn't) they would have room to play and release some energy. Very convenient to Badlands and the Minute Man sites.
