The Cattail Lodge and the 3 motel rooms we rented housed a group of 18 people, which made for gatherings very helpful with the accommodations in the lodge. We were able to prepare meals and had enough seating for everyone, both inside and outside. Nice game room but did not use, had sight-seeing to do. Housekeeping picked-up/delivered towels on a...

The Cattail lodge and Motel rooms are beautiful. The staff Lynn and Sally were very helpful with all our needs. I will and have recommended this place to my friends. If I ever return to Rapid City I will stay at the Cayon Lake Resort. Rapid City was our home base for a week and it worked very well for... More

We stayed in the small hotel section; discovered in the "Visit Rapid City" booklet at the South Dakota Visitor Center on I-90. I randomly selected Canyon Lake Resort given it's location and name. I called ahead while on I-90 and booked a motel room for the evening ~ I knew Sturgis was gearing up within the week! We stayed in... More

We stayed in a large lodge which is actually a converted home. It had a game room with a Pool table, Foosball and Ping Pong tables. A really nice large dining table and rock fireplace. It was summer so we didn't test the fireplace. It did only have two bathrooms which was a drawback if you've got a lot of... More

We came over the 4th of July holiday and stayed in the 2 BD cabin. I would consider it more like a rambler style duplex than anything. The furniture and the TV were outdated and there were some kind of stains on the cushions of the couch. Would have been nice if they had a DVD player as an option... More

If you are like me you read the average and negative reviews about a place to see if those people are just plain picky or snobs. I am neither, I consider myself to be pretty low maintenance, but there were a few things about this place that were deal breakers or could have been much nicer. We had a large... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Cattail Lodge. This house is older, but spacious & comfortable. We felt the price was a little high-but went at peak season-& all the hotels in area were just as high. Pros Large game room with pool, foosball, ping pong table & poker table + piano & board games -fun for kids! Right next... More

I would recommend Canyon Lake Resort to everyone - it was very clean, affordable, family friendly, and a beautiful setting to boot. The most outstanding part of the resort is the staff. They will go out of their way to make sure your needs are met, that you have everything and even stop to chat with you about the local... More
