We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Custer for a week in August 2014. We chose Custer as our home base as it was centrally located in the Black Hills. The hotel was very nice and our room with a balcony was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The complementary breakfast was varied (oatmeal, eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, pancakes, toast, bagels,...

If you can handle the winding turns and drive then this place is about the nicest place in Custer. The pool and hot tub area are nice. The lobby is very nice also. The beds are comfortable, and we found the room to be very clean. The bad part of our trip was that the hotel key card reader didn't...

Very pleasant stay, even though it was bike rally week, and there were tens of thousands of bikers in the city. The hotel was packed, but the service was still very good. The breakfast servers work overtime to insure the food is hot and plentiful

We recently stayed here and had one of the best nights sleep weve ever had in the USA. ! The hotel is based on the edge of town but a 10 min walk gets you into the centre. Parking is more than ample, breakfast good but they need more staff on serving duty at busy times.....overall very good hoel.

The hotel is located a short distance away from the main town, which we preferred. We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was at the back of the hotel & was quiet & had a view of the waterfall.

A well located hotel in line with the best standards of Holiday Inn hotels. Very clean and well organised. Very close to the splendid Custer State Park and some miles away from Mount Rushmore. Indoor swimming pool and outside relaxing terrasse are further nice assets to the hotel.

Stayed here with grade-school grandson. Was just what we needed. A little away from downtown, but close enough if motivated to walk to the city main street. Google and my car GPS show wrong location by several blocks so location was confusing to find. Hotel website should submit a correction. Yes, the pool, hot tub and breakfast all nice.
