We are diamond card holders so naturally we chose to stay here. The reservation was a little mixed up but the manager compensated for that. One of the evening guys however was rather rude ( not Dennis ). He wanted to argue and make everything difficult, didn't want to use a discount I had cause the reservation was in my... More

Our room was clean. It was cold when we visited and the heater for our room was noisy, kicking in every 20 minutes or so throughout the night. It did not make for a very restful sleep. The pool was located in a different building and we did not use it due to the cold temps and snow. Breakfast was... More

We have found Best Western motels are a sure thing--good quality for a little bit more money. Sure, you can find places to stay for less. But if you want a little bit better value for your money, this motel is a good choice. We have stayed at cheaper motels in Hill City, but this will be the one I... More

Beautiful Hotel, it even has it's own Woman's Boutique in the main lobby check-In. Golden Spike is located at the quiet end of town. 30 minute drive to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. There's a wonderful Train museum to visit in Hill City, unfortunately it is closed during the off season. Most of the shops in town are closed during... More

Rooms were clean, staff was friends and helpful (especially Dennis), and the included hot breakfast was great (especially the waitress Stephanie). If you want a a relatively... More

This property was in an excellent location to explore the Black Hills of South Dakota. Easy drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. Hotel staff was great. Breakfast was one of the best I've ever had as you actually got to order from a limited menu and it was cooked to order. I didn't use the pool... More
