After suffering a tire blowout on our RV while heading out of town, we limped into the Big Sky Lodge (the closest to our breakdown) and were so relieved we did! We loved, loved this little hotel and would have stayed the entire time if we could have had our cat there. The hotel is very well cared for and... More

We got some good advice on places to see and visit in the area from the friendly staff. Although we did... More

We found this place while doing a review on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a go. We knew we would be out playing tourist most of the day so all we needed was a clean quiet friendly place to stay. The price was very good, the beds are very nice, the place was clean and the shower worked... More

I stayed here on 9/25 and was very happy with my very clean room. I always check corners to see if they are clean and this room was great! I would definitely stay here again. Room was nice, price was very reasonable. Thanks Big Sky Lodge.

We came upon this lodge by accident and we were very glad we did. It was so clean and well maintained! The view from this lodge is spectacular. If we are ever back in this area we will definitely stay at this welcoming lodge again.

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.
