From the comfortable bed, off the main street location, and real breakfast, the Battle Creek Lodge was my favorite. Not too much, Not too little with a location tucked into the mountain on Hwy 40.Tammy was very caring, fun to talk with, gave very good directions and her idea for the loop car drive in Custer State Park was great....

We spent 5 days in Keystone, SD viewing the fabulous sites. Battle Creek Lodge is centrally located to the sites and Keystone. The Lodge was fabulous. Extremely clean rooms and well equipped. Breakfast is included in the room price and each day there was something different and really good. The ladies at the Lodge made our stay even better. They...

Dear Rtzbrick Family ~ Thanks for staying with us! It makes my day to hear you say that we felt like "home" and "family" to you. I have 3 business goals that I set every season, this year one of those goals included making Battle Creek a home away from home for our guests. I am so glad to hear...

The room was awesome. Lots of little details that the owner has thought about. Even though I did not have a lot of direct contact with owner, saw her interaction with others and she was GREAT! Friendly, helpful. . .I just wish we had been able to stay longer.

We had a flight canceled which pushed back our road trip by two days. Our travel agent found Tammy very helpful in changing our reservation on short notice. We did have to pay a higher price but this was more than fair as it included the first day of Sturgis. Tammy was very helpful in suggesting local things to see...

We are not used to roadside lodges, therefore we didn't like this place. We had booked for a king size room, but it was very small, on the ground floor, formerly a room for employees, turned into a guest room. It was claustrophobic, dark, with a very low ceiling, and a strong smell. So then we were moved to a...

Hi Brenda, We regret that you were unable to make the trip. We understand it was a costly mistake -- but you aren't telling the FULL STORY.
