4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Cabin was clean and very well maintained.Had all amenities needed for fixing a meal within the kitchenette or on the grill. Very good location for Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. Only downside was the sleeping loft is sized only for very small children, my 5"5" daughter was to cramped to sleep in it. Also stairs to loft are... More

We came to the area without reservations (bad idea). We watched the evening lighting ceremony at Mt.Rushmore and started looking for a place. This was about 10 minutes away and one of the only places that had a room under $200. They had just had a cancellation, so we got lucky. The owner answered the phone after hours and unlocked...

Just came back from Mountain View Lodge. The staff was very friendly and had a wealth of knowledge about the area. We had a group of 7 adults and 3 children. Even though the pool was small and not heated, it fit our needs. Also has small playground. We rented 2 cabins. Both were clean and well supplied with dishes... More

We were hopeful for a great stay in Hill City, easy access to many of the great sites in western South Dakota, but were quickly disappointed with our stay at Mountain View Lodge. The room was dark and cramped. No bathtub...only a phone booth size shower, not easy for bathing the little ones. The outdoor pool is about the size... More

We stayed in a duplex cabin recently. The cabin was clean, perfectly located in the center of all attractions, and the fire ring was great; the kids insisted we make smores every night. Also, the kids had a blast in the pool! I would recommend Mountain View Lodge and Cabins!

We had a family reunion of 40 people in mid June 2015. We chose Mountain View Lodge because it had enough cabins for us to stay together. The central location was also a selling point. I booked a year in advance and during that time I had several questions/answer sessions via email with Chad. He was awesome and always very... More

We selected this location to spend three nights over the 4th of July holiday at Mt. Rushmore and on the whole were quite disappointed. The first thing that became apparent was how dark and cramped our room was. Other "anomalies" that earned this rating was that there was a bathtub but no faucet (shower head only), only four cable channels... More

This is a great and affordable place to stay. The cabin was very clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location was great and close to just about everything. Free breakfast in the morning was an added bonus. Very nice pool area that was also clean and well maintained.
