The Big Sky Lodge did not live up to expectations for us. It has a nice location with a great view, not too far out of the city. It has good potential, and we appreciate that they take pets. We traveled here off season. So off season, in fact, that they did not have any reception staff. We arrived at... More

Big Sky Lodge is the ideal jumping off point for touring the Black Hills area! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Lodge, it was extremely clean, nicely appointed, and very quiet. The bed was comfy and the room, while somewhat small, was ideal for one person (and one dog). The staff were all very friendly and helpful and there... More

Myself and a few of our other crew had the privilege of staying at the Big Sky Lodge. During peak season they have the breakfast room open. It is close to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse and still very reasonable. Great couple that owns this establishment. Make sure you stay here if there are any rooms available!

Stayed one night, off season, for $39! Was skeptical, but other reviews were positive, so decided to try it. Was not disappointed. Room was small, but very clean, and recently updated, the way it looked. Frig, micro, coffee maker, thick towels, fluffy pillows. What else could you need. Off the beaten path, but the directions on their website were helpful.... More

I really enjoyed my evening at Big Sky Lodge. The people were wonderful, view was fantastic, room was clean and spacious, and the breakfast was like a social club with people trading advice and suggestions on other places to visit. It's also on the South side of Rapid City on the way to Mount Rushmore, so a good place for... More

We stayed one night here and if you love the quaint, "mom and pop" type inns, this is a great place. It was clean, made you feel at home, and you could tell the owners were very proud of the establishment. There were a few camper hookups. It is beyond the downtown area and on the way to Mt. Rushmore... More

The owners were so accommodating! I called to let them know we would be arriving late. The front office closed at 10, but he told us he would just tape the key to the office door for us. We arrived slightly after 10, and the man was just locking up, but he came out and greeted us and showed us... More

The lodge had a great view for the sun rise and of the city lights at night. My wife and I sat out there for hour or so just taking it in and talking. The room was neat, clean and comfortable. Wonderful value, We shall return.... :-)
