I stayed here with my daughter in October of 2015. I was very pleased with everything the hotel offered. Yes, you could hear your neighbors, and the Wi-Fi wasn't the greatest. However, it wasn't anything that would keep me from coming back. The location was perfect for everything you would want to see in the Black Hills. The employees were... More

Very friendly owner, Chad, who is there to help and answer every question you have about where to go and how to get there. Nice, clean, basic room, very close to Hill City and the restaurants, grocery store and FABULOUS candy shop :) . Light breakfast is provided in the office, very casual, open, anything you need. Only limits are... More

Rooms are very clean. Rooms are rustic and could use some updating. Rooms are "serviced" only on request. Breakfast is VERY limited (cold cereal, instant oatmeal, plain donuts, toast, coffee and oj). Owner is nice and welcoming.

We stayed for a few nights to visit Mount Rushmore, the Badlands and Custer State park. Chad is an excellent host who is always willing to give any local flavor to advice you require. The rooms are basic but clean, but with the great scenery you won't be in it much. Basic breakfast is available with excellent coffee, was a... More

This is a very nice affordable hotel; clean, neat. Yes, it's an older one but has been renovated and is quite adequate. Please read the positive reviews and disregard the negative one from this week. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent 2 nights at the Mountain View Lodge in a room, not a cabin. It was clean, included a fridge and microwave and we were able to get a coffee pot/ coffee when requested. It was in a good location going into Hill City if you're coming in on I-90. Request an upstairs for a better view there's chair/... More

They advertise the max number of people to stay in the cabins or rooms, so look to see how many beds there are per room and you will be fine. Clean basic hotel rooms. Location was great, staff was friendly and helpful. Pool is small,

Stayed in a 'Lodge' room. The 'lodge' is actually just a motel - the doors open out on to a shared balcony with a great view of the highway. The shared balcony means you can listen to people stomping up and down, screaming kids, and to top it all off some idiot tried to open the door to our room... More
