My husband and his lifelong buddy and of course the wives, came to the Black Hills for the Annual Buffalo Round-up. We were lucky to even get a cabin for that weekend! We were so pleased with the location, view and amenities. Yes, it was close quarters, probably not meant to house 2 couples in the Small Cabin, but we... More

We stayed 2 nights (October 17-18, 2014) at Mountain View Lodge & Cabins in Hill City. The location was terrific as we planned to go to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Jewel Cave, and we didn't want to "commute" to Rapid City--we really wanted to stay in the Black Hills! Check-in on the "house phone" was a breeze, our room... More

This is the place you wish to choose if you are with family. The owners maintained the ameneties very well and definitely tried their best to make it nice at a reasonable price. I defintely wish to stay if I visit Mount Rushmore again and recommend to stay there without any reservations. Couple of suggestions I wish to make to... More

Great views--lodge room neat clean and had the amenities they stated. Never saw the owner/manager till we were ready to leave after a 2 night stay. Breakfast was a bit light but ok,. Good coffee. No ice machine but $2.00 if you can get the Mgr(could not get in touch with him). No phone in room. Had WIFI if you... More

I think my experience was really four stars, but my parents and sister didn't have their rooms cleaned over the five day period, so they weren't quite as happy. The owner said to let them know if we wanted the room cleaned, otherwise we could just bring towels down and swap them for fresh ones. However, apparently my family in... More

My family recently took a "Three Generation Vacation" to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. We wanted a cabin as a "hub" to allow us to manage our food costs and reduce stress of moving from place to place. The Mountain View Cabins were PERFECT! Our cabin was 2 stories with a separate living quarters for my parents downstairs... More

We stayed in a room with 2 full-size beds which were facing each other. One faced the tiny flat-screen TV high up on the wall. The bed facing the TV was the only one with a lamp on the bedside table. Sink was near the outside of the tiniest bathroom I've ever seen. There was no place to put anything... More

We needed a cabin that could accommodate our family of 7 and these cabins were perfect for us. Affordable too. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the hosts a lot. They were really fun and friendly with the kids and helped us out in a crisis situation when our vehicle broke down. The location was central to lots of the... More

This is the first time that we have been somewhat disappointed with the Tripadvisor rating. I will start with the Pros: It is very well located to all the main attractions in the Black Hills. 12 miles to Mt. Rushmore. Crazy Horse and the Needles Hwy are about 10 miles. The Lodge room was clean, which is a must for... More
