My two night stay here was prompted when La Quinta jacked up their rates from $100 to $274 for Memorial Day weekend. $80 per night here. Well worth the extra drive from Rapid City. The staff was very friendly, attentive to my wishes and questions. Weather was rainy and raw outside. When I asked for help firing the heating unit,... More

Nicely maintained hotel managed by a very personable young man who bent over backward to make our stay satisfactory. Breakfast not part of their write up but they do have cold items. Recommended for anyone looking for a good bang for your buck.

Wonderful experience. Large, clean rooms, plush towels, quiet space. The owner lives on site with his family and he was most friendly and helpful. We will go back if we can work it out on our return journey. Breakfast simple but adequate. Nice

The Bear Lodge Hotel was a great place to stay! Extremely friendly staff, clean and comfortable, and had a little breakfast and coffee ready for us in the morning. We are driving from Montana to Ohio and the owner gave great recommendations for places to see on our way!!

We stayed here one night as we were passing thru. I booked the room right online and upon arriving 2 hours later was greeted by Ken at the front desk. He was very friendly an accommodating, giving us recommendations on places to eat as well. The motel itself is a smaller non chain type place with parking in the center... More

While traveling for pleasure on a motorcycle, we were unlucky enough to get stranded by an unseasonable large snow fall in the middle of May. Got recommendations for this motel from the truck stop employee. The value received for the money spent was perfect. The owner went out of his way to give us a room that enabled us to... More

Room was spacious and clean. Although it was supposed to be a non-smoking room I could smell traces of cigarette smoke, especially when you turn on the bathroom fan. The walls are a bit thin but I always have earplugs so that solves that issue. Front desk was very helpful about restaurant suggestions in town. The parking is a bit... More

Great Hotel. We arrived with 2 tired little guys and the manager got us in the room quickly. The manager was really nice and helpful. When we come back to Sundance, we will definitely stay there again

My boyfriend and I stayed here after a quick stop at Devil's Tower, and I'm really glad we did. The only downside was that there was no breakfast. However, the manager was really helpful in giving us tips about where to eat, to gas up, etcetera. He even lent us a DVD player for our room and helped us set... More
