What a great find in a small town - the reviews are all correct. The staff at this hotel were hands down the best we have ever encountered. Genuinely nice and wanting to please. The breakfast was amazing and has ruined us for any other hotel. Nothing will ever compare - far more than a bagel and donut. Custom ordered...

Just had an absolutely delightful stay. I'm on a road trip so we are only spending one night here but the people are friendly, the rooms renovated and the breakfast... oh the breakfast. Best free breakfast I've had in a motel. If my travels take me through the Lusk area again, I'll definitely start here again.

the breakfast served form the back of a chuckwagon stagecoach was great and the whole experience from check-in to the easy check-out was excellent and I would recommend to anyone. It was actually worth the extra our drive when leaving mount Rushmore

Loved this hotel and would go back when in the area! The owners were friendly and helpful and their staff was wonderful also. We would recommend this hotel to all persons visiting in the area! We also went to a restaurant recommended by the staff and really enjoyed the food and service.

We stopped for a night on our way to SD, and again on the way back. The service is the friendliest we've ever encountered. The breakfast omelette wagon is great! We took a room with 2 queens that has a second bedroom with another 2 beds, and it was very convenient with the kids. The room was clean and comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to BEST WESTERN Pioneer! Mount Rushmore is just a day trip away from our Lusk hotel, and there are plenty of other must-see attractions right here in Wyoming. From the Crazy Horse Monument to Devil's Tower, welcome to the most exciting vacation imaginable. The Sturgis(R) Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota brings in bikers from around the country. There's plenty of free truck and RV parking at our Lusk hotel, and complimentary high-speed Internet and a hot breakfast each morning to make you feel right at home. Start the morning with stacks of hot waffles, fruits and pastries, cereal, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, yogurt and 100% Arabica coffee or juice. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, guests can enjoy made-to-order omelets from an authentic 1890 chuckwagon. Whether you're heading to the Sturgis(R) Motorcycle Rally or Devil's Tower, we offer a great location for several sites. A few of our Lusk hotel guests are here on business, and our spacious rooms are very conducive to productivity. Employees of the Wyoming Women's Center Correctional Facility, oil and land lease companies, the Union Pacific Railroad and Niobrara Health and Life Center all consider us their home away from home. The Wind Cave National Park is another big attraction that brings in Lusk hotel guests from near and far. Explore Mother Nature's bounty with complimentary use of cruiser bicycles, or simply relax at our heated seasonal outdoor pool. Cold weather hookups are available for trucks and RVs at no charge, and there's even a motorcycle wash area, so you'll be arriving at the rally in style. Enjoy a grill in the courtyard for an impromptu barbeque. Friendly staff, a fantastic location and plenty of amenities easily make our Lusk hotel a popular choice. Let us know what we can do to make your stay even more enjoyable. Our helpful staff always goes the extra mile, and our top priority is ensuring that you have a great trip.
