The Badlands is an area where not many motels are on offer. This little one served the purpose of bed and bath in a great location near the amazing rock formations and entrance to the park. Attractively painted outside with chairs on the porch and flowers in planters, this is a motel out of an older era and is very... More

This is our second trip to the Badlands and our second stay at this hotel. The price is good, rooms large, and beds comfortable. The hotel is very convenient to the Badlands. We were able to hike, then go back to the hotel to shower, rest, and head back out to eat at Cedar Pass Lodge.

We chose this for camping because we needed a fire pit for cooking and camp grounds within the park are not allowed fires. It is actually outside the park, if you come from Minnesota you pay to go into the park then leave again. The site is about 1 mile from the park but the views are so good you... More

The hosts have only taken over this combined RV park, motel and camping ground. The facilities are only average but scheduled for improvement. They are very kind and friendly people. Nothing was too much trouble for them to help me download some maps for my GPS. The breakfast was delicious. Lovely spot with a good view of the Badlands. In... More

No matter where we stay in the Badlands area we always go for breakfast at the Budget Host Inn. They have an all you can eat sourdough and sausage breakfast with bottomless coffee that is very tasty. The same lady has worked there for years and we look forward to chatting with her yearly. Good food and friendly people. The... More

My family of 5 (3 kids) really enjoyed the stay on this vacation to the Badlands. This site is approx. 1 mile from the national park entrance. The cozy camping cabin is simple enough to feel like tent camping with the added comfort of a roof and padded beds. Windows opened to let in a nice breeze. There's optional AC.... More

While the room does not have TV we were not there to watch TV. If you are looking for a nice place to stay in the Badlands you can't go wrong here. The price was reasonable and the rooms were clean. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. I can't rate their restaurant as they had just opened for... More

The room I shared with my mom for one night was adequate. We were winging it on a road trip and thought just rolling into town sounded fun. It was fun, but the room was not. No tv, no radio, and only a very spooky restaurant option to eat at for dinner if you want a meal later in the... More

I chose this motel because I wanted to stay as close as possible to the park without spending too much, and it was even better than i expected. The motel is 5 minutes to the park's entrance and it has everything we usually look for when travelling: comfortable beds and clean bathroom. We did't have breakfast there because we chose... More

We had hoped to stay in the cabins in the Badlands but it was booked. Having driven from Nebraska and the day turning to night, we tried the Host Inn. A pleasant surprise awaited us. (I have to admit that when we drove by I said, "no way"). Was I wrong. The room albeit it small was freshly painted, clean... More
