Be sure to stop in, if you need a nice clean room , No frills , but a very good bed. No A/c , but who needs it , help keep local family owned motels alive. Very nice personable young man at the front desk. I believe the whole family work here .

The group of motorcyclists I ride with have stayed here the last few years. This year there were 13 of us and we all had a great time. Hill City is the perfect home base for riding all the spectacular roads in the Black Hills. The owner, Drew, always treats us well and even provides a washing station for motorcycles.... More

Have stayed here 4 times. Clean rooms, friendly owner, great prices. Motel is near Main Street, within walking distance. Rooms are checked everyday by the maids. Fresh towels, etc. Coffee and other items are available in the office after 7 AM.

This is a fun place. The decor is non-typical, kind of kitchy. Everything was clean and comfortable. The room has a mini fridge which I wanted. I also like that one can park right in front of your room. They have a bike wash area, which we took advantage of daily since we came by Harley. We also liked the... More

We stayed at the Lantern Inn for two nights, and we were quite happy with our stay. As a few have said, this is not the Hilton, but who wants to stay at an overpriced Hilton, when you can stay at a nice family run place like this? The owner was very helpful and accommodating, and we were quite pleased.... More

The Lantern Inn is your typical small-town motel but very nicely executed. The owner is very involved in the operation and goes out of this way to make sure everything is up to snuff. The rooms are super clean, bedding is exceptionally good, and prices are quite reasonable. There are a couple large chain hotels in Hill City which may... More

An older Mom and Pop motel...but very comfortable. Very clean and quite. Motel staff was ever friendly and helpful. We stayed 4 nights. Would have liked a coffee marker in our room. However we did know before we booked that there was no coffee in room. If we make another cross country trip to South Dakota we would stay here... More

Our room was clean and comfortable, and included a reclining chair, desk, mini-fridge and microwave. The bathroom was a little small, but not a big deal. Hotel was a little outdated, but was homey. Everyone was really nice and the inn was right across from the grocery store.

We were told that this palce is very friendly to bikers. They really are having a place to wash our motorcyles and most rooms are on the first floor. My lights stopped working nd the owner was right there with some tools. The place was very clean with micro, refridge, kitchen sink. Easy walk to the town of Hill City.... More
