Staff was very friendly, room were clean and priced right. They offered a great breakfast and serveds early in the morning. Pool and hot tub on sight was very nice at the end of the night and a log bike ride.

This hotel is conveniently located to all restaurants in the town of Custer and is also very convenient to Custer State Park and other Black Hills attractions. I believe it's the newest hotel in town and is very nice both inside and out. The interior feels like a lodge with beautiful stonework/woodwork and large lobby area with huge fireplace. The...

The hotel is conveniently located close to Mount Rushmore, Wind Cave, Custer State Park and Jewel Cave. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. My wife and I enjoyed sitting on their patio around the fire pit they had. Definitely will stay here again when in the area.

We stayed there for two nights during early Oct., 2016. The location and the facility are okay This turned out to be one of the biggest rip-offs we have ever experienced. We unknowingly planned our stay at the time of the annual buffalo round-up. Big mistake. We paid over $240 a night for what should be an $80 room (tops!)....

Used this hotel for a two night stay to explore the Black Hills and Custer State Park. Front desk perfect, room clean and comfortable, breakfast more than enough, enjoy watching kids using the automatic pancake machine. Hot tub was good, did not use the pool. Great location and a nice town.

The décor of the main areas is really beautiful. Didn't use the pool but saw that the view outside was of a hillside so nice and private. Also have a firepit outside for guests to use (but we didn't find out about this until we were leaving). Breakfast had a really nice selection. Rooms were decent sized and clean. Only...

Wonderful! Thank you so much for staying with us & taking time to write a review. I am sorry you didnt know about the fire pit area sooner, it certainly is a nice place to rest after a long day of site seeing. Thanks for letting us know about the fan I will make sure maintenance looks into that. Thanks...

Really enjoyed this hotel. The decor was perfect for the area, staff was friendly, rooms were large, clean, and quiet. Breakfast was standard HIEx, but kept clean and well stocked. Close to eating places and of course the beautiful Black Hills.

We knew we were heading to Mt Rushmore on our trip and needed lodging as we weren't camping on this trip. We had quite a few IHG points to use and I tried to get the most out of them, using some for free nights and others towards to partially pay for room. There are a couple of Holiday Inns...

We had a fabulous suite at this Hotel - rewarded for our loyalty by a free upgrade. So much room and great facilities - if only we had been staying longer! Good base for Mt Rushmore. Great breakfast and lovely breakfast area.
