The rooms were clean but were very dated. Gaps in the door and around the air conditioner let multiple flies into the room and the water turned cold in the shower multiple times . We would not book a room here ever again way overpriced for what you get.

When I was researching places to stay closest to the Badlands it appeared I had 2 options---this one and the cabins inside the park. I made reservations for a cabin. Our travel dates changed, I had to reschedule and the cabins were no longer available. The really nice person on the phone kept confirming that I understood that I was... More

I spend a lot of time researching prior to any vacation. And I really wanted to like this place. The location to the park is awesome. I had read the reviews here for this place so I was very aware that it is an older establishment. I also read that at least one person had a big bug in their... More

I think it's all been said here previously. We were greeted warmly by very genuine people and we were even there a little before 5:00 PM! The place is adequate but, like me, saw better days about twenty or thirty years ago. I think if we stay in the area again we'd look at (ugh...) Wall, or, even as far... More

My husband and I spent one night here while visiting the Badlands. The location is outstanding as it overlooks the park and is just minutes away from the entrance. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from our bed on the second floor! The inn itself is a two-story motel with doors opening to the outside, which I usually don't like, but... More

We arrived late at night and had arranged to pick up our key from the night box. All worked out marvelously and we were greeted in our room with a note and bag of snacks since all concessions are closed in the park area by 8pm. Mary Sue from Badlands Inn did the arrangements for our arrival in absence. Rooms... More

Stayed one night last week of June. We were en route to Spearfish and wanted to spend a day in the Badlands National Park. Pretty spartan property, but friendly check in, clean room of adequate size. The prior posts about leaving your door open not only apply to mosquitoes and other bugs but also the occasional toad hopping around eating... More

Just outside of Badlands National Park, Badlands Inn is a perfect place to end a visit to the national park. It is really a two story motel. There are evening ranger tours close by making the hotel room convenient. The room was very basic, fake hardwood floors with a window air conditioning unit and screened windows. The room was clean,... More

This Inn is associated with the Cedar Pass Lodge in the Badlands National Park. It is located about a mile from the lodge just outside of the park. Other than a comfortable room and a nice continental breakfast no other services are provided at the Inn. When we arrived at the appointed check in time of 5:00pm we had to... More

We came in after the office closed and the lady who was in charge was really great about it! The rooms are nothing to write home about but they are clean and comfortable! The breakfast was pretty good for a free hotel breakfast. Would definitely recommend and stay there again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Each of our 20 rooms has a magnificent view of the Badlands. You will rest well in our double queen rooms with upgraded high thread count linens/with bamboo towels (the linens use less energy to dry and are made with long bamboo fibers making them last longer than cotton towels), free WiFi, AC/Heat, cable TV, Energy Star Microwave & Mini refrigerator, Energy Star Coffee Maker with organic and shade grown coffee and complimentary breakfast in the lobby. There is an evening happy hour of local wine tasting in the lobby of the Inn for our guests. Night Skies in the Badlands are particularly dark and we encourage you to experience the FREE Ranger led tours in the amphitheater located inside the Park, less than a mile away. We are an Environmentally Friendly Inn and encourage recycling, plus we are a 100% non-smoking property and welcome pets. (There is a $10/night additional fee per pet). Children 15 years and younger stay free in same room with adult. We are the closest lodging to Badlands National Park (an easy walk from the Interior entrance) and only 9 miles from I-90 at Exit 131 and the Minute Man National Missile Monument. ... more   less
