My mother and I stayed here on our way through SD on Sept. 11, 2014; the earliest day on record that Rapid City received snow. The view of Rapid City from this motel was amazing, and the owners are very friendly and really care about the service that they give. It is NOT a corporate owned hotel! The rooms were... More

During our 15 day motorcycle adventure in the Black Hills we stayed here a total of three days. The owners Jay and Alicia could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. The night manager Bob was also gracious. The views of Rapid City are spectacular. We both loved this place and if ever back in the area, we'll be back.

The lodge is in a beautiful location with a great view, is well-maintained, very clean, and has many thoughtful touches. The price was very reasonable. We found the beds were too firm, but still got a good night's sleep.

I found this Lodge after a long days drive and was delighted I did! The rooms were clean and check-in went well. I enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub looking at the view of Rapid City in the evening with all of the lights. Great breakfast and with directions at check-out I was on my way again. Thank you for...

Many people talked about the clean rooms, great views of RC, Hot tub, great breakfast and fresh food. After 12 days of camping in the national parks, we were looking for 2 double or 2 queen beds at 930 at night for 5 people. They had a 3 double suite for a reasonable price, so we got there, checked in,... More

This was my first trip to Rapid City and could have stayed at a chain hotel. This Lodge was recommended from the Tour package we booked and we were not disappointed with either. The tour was great and the room was cleaner than the last chain room I stayed in. Will stay there again if in the area. Would definitely... More

The room was set as a motel, friendly staff, great view up on a hill and close to lots of main attractions, price a little higher for the accommodation ,complimentary breakfast satisfactory but the bed can be updated. During our stay we experienced an exciting lightning show that's both frightening and exciting up in the hill. Will I recommend it... More

It does have a for sale sign, but it's such a cool location and hotel my husband and I both imagined what it would be like to buy this place and give it a facelift. It sits high up in the hills, off the beaten path (but close to everything) and has an amazing view. The hotel itself is tidy,... More
