Have stayed here multiple times while in town to run the Crazy Horse marathon! The hotel is a very ideal location! Minutes away from all of the national parks and monuments. The rooms are spotless and the indoor pool is always a nice perk as well! The staff have always been pleasant and accommodating (especially whenever a giant snowstorm hits).... More

We stayed here in August and really enjoyed it. Our group consisted of 9 people and 5 rooms arriving at different times. Check in and parking was easy. This was base camp for motorcycle day trips. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast was good and another reason we chose to stay. Rooms were clean and quiet. If there... More

We stayed for two nights to visit Mt. Rushmore. The guy at check in and check out was very welcoming and pleasant. Our room was very big and nice. Our dog enjoyed the dog park area. The breakfast was so good and excellent for a free breakfast. Our hostess, waitress and cook was very pleasant!!!

We traveled in October when there were fewer tourists. The hotel staff was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay. The weekday complimentary breakfasts were especially good as we could order our preference rather than the usual cafeteria style weekend breakfast.

Hotel is conveniently located for viewing of Mount Rushmore and seeing the surrounding area. Room was quite with very little outside noise. Breakfast with the room was good with a good variety. Desk staff was friendly but did not know much about the area.

We stayed in a suite with 3 kids. Great room with very comfortable beds. Staff was excellent. Pool was great. Breakfast was good. Great coffee with to-go cups to take out with us every day on our trips in the area. Really liked how centrally located it was to all of the stuff that we wanted to see. Excellent stay... More

I made reservations with David at the Golden Spike Best Western 2 weeks prior to needing our room. I told him at the time I had 19,600 points to use to get a free night's stay for my husband's and my anniversary. He seemed incompetent at the time as far as his knowledge saying I needed a voucher. According to... More

I apologize that you had a disappointing experience while staying at the Best Western Golden Spike. 20,000 points is the required amount for a free nights stay and anything less will be denied by Best Western. I am deeply sorry if there was confusion regarding this. I am also sorry that I was not on the property when this occurred... More

This hotel was perfectly located close to Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore. The room was clean, my children enjoyed the pool and the hotel staff was very helpful especially when I couldn't find a swimsuit and thought it went out with towels during room service. The Manager said he would check with Housekeeping personally and I did find the swimsuit.... More

Very good location for all the Black Hill sites. The room and beds were very comfortable. The sink area could have been a little larger. The breakfast was the best because they have a restaurant on site. Front desk was very helpful. Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed.
