We stayed 2 nights here in room #118 & #119. The rooms are big & comfy. Housekeeping service was awesome. Please tip them. It is perfectly located if you want to see Mt. Rushmore & visit custer state park & crazy horse. Also "1800 train" is just a stone throw away. Breakfast was great. Pool was of smaller size &... More

If you are visiting Mt. Rushmore, stay in Hill City, not Keystone or Custer. And, in Hill City this Holiday Inn is perfectly located for a walk into "town". It has an indoor pool and free breakfast, wi fi and Internet in the lobby. And, the manager is friendly and wants to provide the best service possible. She immediately responded... More

We choose the Holiday Inn Express because it was close to the Mickelson trail and it was. We were surprised then to have them suggest that we should store our bicycles in our room. We truly thought they might have a storage room because of their proximity to the trail. Rooms were large but we could hear noises from the... More

Standard Holiday Inn Express. No real complaints other than the price, but it is a tourist area. Nice pool, breakfast was plentiful, staff was friendly, great location. We would definitely stay here again.

For a Holiday Inn Express I was a little disappointed. Check in was slow as six families showed up at one time. Appeared one of staff was being trained but got through it without issue. Our room needed a good carpet cleaning. Workout room wasn't much of a workout room and seemed like an after thought. After being in the... More

This hotel is about a half hour from Mt. Rushmore and it was really, really nice. It's also about twenty minutes from Bear Country U.S.A., which is a fantastic drive-thru zoo! There is free hot breakfast in the morning and they had a great selection to choose from. The room was clean and spacious enough for my mom, two kids,... More

This hotel is centrally located to all the major attractions of the Mt. Rushmore area. It is set back from the roadway on a small hill so there is no noise of vehicle traffic. Hill City is a nice little town and the hotel is easy walking distance.The hotel is very quite, clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub... More

Stayed here 6 years ago and, when planning our second Black Hills visit, had to stay here again. I'm pleased to say it was just as great the second time. This hotel is in the perfect location: close to Mt. Rushmore, close to Custer park, and within walking distance to many restaurants. It's also very clean and the staff is... More

This place was so nice! The room was clean & the bed & pillows were comfy. Those are always my main concerns so if those are met I'm good. A bonus was the breakfast & the staff. The lady at the front desk at check in was very nice, not stuffy at all. Not all HIE breakfasts are the same... More

We really liked this hotel. The lobby is adorable, the rooms are nice, and staff great. The closeness to Mt. Rushmore is perfect. Great little town. Breakfast was standard HIE so nothing to write about there. It appears to be the nicest place in the town.
