The friendliness of the staff along with chocolate chip cookies made a great first impression. Traveling with a dog can sometimes be difficult, but our room was on the lower level with immediate access to a walking path. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It is obvious that the owners take pride in their inn. Recommendations for a restaurant were...

We enjoyed the pancake bar every morning. Great coffee and treats too! The staff are super friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed...

What can I say.... perfect location, great rooms, wonderful staff and good food. We loved our stay and feel so lucky we found it on line. From the Inn it's a lovely circle drive to Crazy Horse then MT Rushmore and back. You won't regret it at all. As a former Best Western Manager I give it 9 stars out...

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. We stayed for two nights. There were many flowers decorating the outside and it was very pretty. The room was clean, wifi worked well, and breakfast was available. It was not right in Custer, but it was just a short drive to restaurants and to Custer State Park and other attractions were...

Thank you so much for the 5 Star Review of the Bavarian Inn, Black Hills. Located less than 1 mile into the little city of Custer, we agree that the Bavarian Inn is a great location. The surrounding attractions like Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave, and Custer State Park are all only a few minutes from us....

Enjoyed a 2 night stay here. Had booked online and didn't really know what to expect. From arrival to check out the staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely with flowers and comfortable benches. The rooms are very clean and well equipped. Yes, some are dated in decor but still comfortable. It is obvious that the new owners...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is close to local attractions, yet still in a very scenic setting. The staff was helpful and friendly and I loved the flavored water every day!! Plenty to do here for the entire family! Breakfast pancakes were good but the line was very long, we would have preferred a traditional continental breakfast...

We stayed here for a three day weekend during Columbus Day. The place is cozy and the staff is great. Most of the interactions were with Savannah and she is wonderful. Makes sure she has fresh cookies for all and the breakfast pancake bar is awesome. Never needed to ask for a thing. Prices for the area are very good...

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at the Bavarian Inn. From the beautiful flowers, to the welcome cookies, to the rubber duck at our bathtub, to the pancake bar, it was clear to us that the owners take great care to add little extras to make this a welcoming place to stay.
