I chose the Budget Host to be close to the Badlands and it is just outside the gate. At first glance I wasn't too sure I wanted to stay. As it turns out, the staff was friendly and the room, although dated and no TV (didn't bother me) was clean and large with a mini fridge. Bedding needs updating. We... More

There are very limited lodging options in the Badlands and this place was the right price! The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, but dated/basic. The pool was definitely a nice bonus for this area! Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here because of the proximity to the Badlands. Being so close to the Badlands was perfect, and the motel was quiet. When we arrived, the owners' dog in the office was friendly. The room was pretty basic, no TV, outdated decor, clean. It was quiet when we arrived, but when neighbors had arrived, you could hear them moving... More

We were pleased with the Badlands Motel (Budget Host) for a few reasons. We were looking for a one night stay that was close to Badlands National Park, check! This is a small family owned/operated motel that is outdated but clean and friendly. The rooms are plain and do not have a t v, the bathroom is small but serves... More

You may see this listed as Badlands Budget Host. It is a motel plus a large campground. Unfortunately, its had been raining a lot, and most of the campground was wet or slightly flooded. We came here because the Badlands National Park campground was fully booked. The restroom had two showers and was small and rather wet. It has a... More

a.k.a. Badlands Motel & Campground, the motel is exactly as its photo indicates. Yes, it was clean'ish, mostly quiet, and safe. The family owners are very nice and helpful. The tiny shower is challenging for anyone taller than 5'-2". If I had it to do over again, I would book at the Super 8 down the road.

This is the perfect spot just outside of the Badlands National Park to stop over for the night or a few days. Quiet and peaceful surroundings. The Badlands are close for you to explore as well. Unfortunately this isn't the perfect place for an extended stay unless you're bringing your own 'house' (i.e. RV or camper)

My father and I visited the Badlands last summer. We made no advance plans for where we would stay. Unknown to us at first, we arrived right during the huge annual Sturgis motorcycle rally (August), and the surrounding accommodations were mostly full. We ended up at the Budget Host Inn, which has no TV. We didn't want a TV, though... More

This place is what it is, a budget inn. There is no pool, no television, or wifi. If your purpose is for hiking with minimal necessities then this is the place. Does have a comfy large king bed, a mini fridge and a coffee maker with coffee. The sign just down the highway road from the inn is population 79... More

This was a nice, clean little motel. No tv's but that was ok with us, we only stayed one night on our way to the black hills. Nice views of the badlands. There were chairs outside but it was too chilly to sit out there.
