My wife and I are travelling on motorcycles. We arrived at the motel but were a way too early (about 2 hours!) to formerly check in and our room wasn't quite ready but the owner let us leave our bags in the room and we were also able to use the refrigerator. Whilst waiting for the room to be made... More

I love this motel, the owners are very friendly and I can see updates on their motel every time I come back.... they have grills for all, pool, hot tub, and you can even bring the kids fishing in their little stream and catch trout "very relaxing". Very fun motel and I would not stay anywhere else. Oh ya, the... More

Older motel but very clean. Owners are very hard working. By the time you leave, you will feel like family. we stayed 5 days. You can park in front of your room and don't have to drag your luggage down endless halls. Not a chain motel. we like to support the small motels. Clean, Excellent bed, and good shower, with...

I stayed here three nights, I really loved this place, older, peaceful and kind of homey, very friendly people, I will be back. Perfectly situated between Mt. Rushmore, (Keystone), Custer, Deadwood, Rapid City, Spearfish Canyon, Needles and Iron Mountain Highway, and Sturgis. Hill City is a cute little town nestled in the hills, I think I heard that it is... More

Very good place to stay while visiting Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer Park, Wind Cave Park. The rooms are very cozy, enough parking space, and there are restaurante and markets very close, though many of them are closed at 8:30pm. Hill City is a very quiet small town. I was only 2 nights, the second day nobody did housekeeping, I... More

Was a nice place to stay while in Hill City. My family got a queen sized room and the room was nice. Beds are comfortable and clean. The hotel was very accommodating and a nice place to stay. The breakfast is very light (oatmeal, english muffin and banana) but is a nice start to the day. This place is very... More

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 .
