We stayed in the rustic styled cabins in Badlands National Park. We had porches on the front and back of the freestanding cabin. Everything looked brand new (but rustic) and beautiful. The cabin was spacious and functional with lovely scenery.

Staying at the Cedar Pass Lodge is the best way to experience Badlands National Park. The cabins are new and updated and very comfortable. The beds are luxurious--especially after a long day of hiking or exploring. The front and back porch made relaxing easy. The fridge and microwave make it easy to have your own snacks because the restaurant attached... More

The cabins here are lovely. Log cabins with great amenities. Bamboo towels, great product in the bathroom. Very comfy beds, great linens. Microwave & flat screen TV. And the view is fabulous. Great for hiking, biking (which we did), short walk to the visitor center that is very good, when not over run with tourist buses. And the restaurant that... More

We had a long drive from Denver to Interior. This Cedar Pass Lodge was a good choice. Beautiful spacious new lodge. Tastefully decorated, very good beds. Our lodge had two terraces and we had a beautiful overlook at the Badlands. When we checked out they give us a free bag of ice with it. Next day we did some hiking... More

Well, check in was poor. Room was not going to be available till exactly 4 pm. The front desk had all new staff except for one person (Ben?). When I came back at 4 pm, it took about 1/2 hour to check in. Not a good first impression. Lobby and gift shop was nice. Restaurant had a run down look... More

Only stayed one night on our way to Mt Rushmore. Would have liked to stay more. Good - Brand new cabins, rustic look, awesome toiletries (used at other hotels later in the week!), TV with HDMI hookup, fridge, microwave, comfy bed. The best was the view and proximity to the Badlands. Our cabin was on the left side of the... More

Easy check-in. Scrupulously clean. Bed was marvelously comfortable and linens were excellent. Took me a bit to figure out the AC/Heat unit (snow in May, brrr), but I was able to do so. These are single cabins, that, I understand, have been refurbished. TV, fridge, wifi, all available. The bath cosmetics were splendid. Stayed here while traveling on business. Do... More

We stayed her for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The front staff, Nichole Big Crow and Maria Iolana were wonderful. Julie Kruse in the restaurant is a local and super. All the cabins are new. Very, very clean with upscale bedding and towels that were better than any chain place we have stayed. We were in #116 which was... More

The place looks amazing and I wish I could say we'll be staying there but after talking to an unpleasant man with a couldn't-care-less attitude on the Forever Resorts reservations line, we will be looking elsewhere. Don't bother asking for a specific cabin location, they will tell you that for $150/night, you cannot choose your own cabin - they will... More

Cedar Pass Lodge provides adequate accommodations for Badlands National Park. Cabins include twin units with separate entrances that have been newly renovated and paneled in cedar planking. Amenities include two queen sized beds and private bathrooms. Units are clean, comfortable and adequate, but are nothing to write home about. Small back patios with 2 Adirondack chairs provide little privacy but... More
