What more can you ask for. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are nice and clean. They are located on the hill above Rapid City and have a great view of the city. On the edge of town, close but not in the traffic of the city. We have stayed here several times and always had a great stay.

The hotel staff was very friendly from the office to the cleaning staff. I was extremely sick with food poisoning that afternoon, and the manager gladly let us check in just a little early.

Stayed at the Lodge for the 2015 Bike Rally, we had a great time! The owners, and staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms and surroundings were very clean. The view at night is beautiful. We are signed up for next year.

We stayed here during the Sturgis Rally 2015. Very clean and well kept place. Peaceful there way up on a hill overlooking Rapid City. They have grills outside picnic tables and a hot tub. People who work there were very friendly also. Felt like family staying here. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the Big Sky Lodge for 3 days during the 2015 Sturgis Biker Rally. I have never stayed at a place where EVERYONE (staff and guests) were so friendly.

We had 2 double beds in our room and it was clean and simple, though quite dated. There is quite a panoramic view from the parking area. Continental breakfast was provided and plentiful, staff was friendly and accomadating.
