You can see the south entrance of the park from the parking lot. No frills motel but very clean rooms and comfortable beds. Only little people can stand upright under the shower heads but that's a minor quibble. Continental style breakfasts were surprisingly satisfying. Food at the nearby Cedar Pass Lodge was horrific so load up on breakfast here. I... More

Thank you for your recent review of your visit in the Badlands of South Dakota. I truly appreciate your candor, and those of other guests who dined at Cedar Pass Lodge. We've made significant changes to both our operations and especially the food service for the 2014 season. Help in the Badlands has always been a struggle, but we are... More

We stayed here in September 2013, the week the government was closing the parks. We had reservations at the lodge cabins but since the parks were closing we decided to arrive earlier and this was the only place by the park that was available. It is a very dated inn. Although it was clean, the rugs were stained and the... More

We booked the Badlands Inn because we could not get a reservation at the bigger lodge up the road in the park. It didn't look too great as we drove up, but the desk clerk was so friendly that we left the office with a good feeling. Our room was very nice, nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. I really...

We stayed here in mid-September, which was late in the season for this motel. The motel is just outside the south entrance to the park. When we arrived there was a sign on the door that said to check in at the Cedar Pass Lodge (about a mile away, inside the park). At check in, the clerk gave us two... More

The Badlands in is right outside the entrance to the park. Great views from the rooms! Beautiful sunrises and sunsets! The breakfast was great. Huge selection. Room was clean and comfortable. One issue was that there were a lot of flies in the room. Don't know if the cleaning staff keeps the door ajar when cleaning, but the flies were... More

We stayed one night at Badlands Inn because the Cedar Pass Lodge was booked up and it was really nice. It is just outside of Badlands National Park, only a mile from the lodge. The office at the Inn was closed so we had to go to the Lodge to check in. They gave us a breakfast voucher for the... More

We stayed at the Badlands Inn only because of the location - in the Badlands. The hotel is a very old building which has seen better days. The check-in was friendly and courteous and our hotel staff member was super accomodating. But, when we arrived at the hotel, just one mile away, we noticed a very strong foul odor in... More

The appearance of the Badlands Inn from the outside does look dated, however what makes this motel special is its position. Located just outside the Badlands N.P. it is perfect for anyone visiting the Badlands. The views at any time of the day are good but at sunset and sunrise they are stunning. On arrival we were given a very... More

We spent 1 night at this hotel and found it to be very adequate for what we were needing. Yes, the room was small, the bathroom was small, the carpet is old and the A/C is noisy. But, they are currently undergoing renovations. Our room had new paint, new mattress, new bedding. The bathroom was clean (although I could do... More
