We called to make a reservation and let them know we will be late and they told us the room number and that we can take car of our account in the morning. We were very happy with this place. It's not a fancy hotel but it made our stay very pleasant. The 5 dollar breakfast was very good and... More

This hotel is perfect for our family of 5 (kids 9, 8, and 6) after driving all day and checking out the badlands. The Inn is older, but extremely clean. The beds where comfortable, it had a mini fridge and even a pull-out bed for our 3rd child. They had a pool and playground that brought me back to my... More

I was apprehensive based on some poor reviews, but this place is amazing. It reminds me of the sort of motel I grew up going to when my dad went fishing. Its a private, family ran business. The people are really nice. It has the basics, but no T.V. or phone. Who needs a T.V. when you have spectacular views?... More

We came here because the campground in the national park was full. This is only a couple of miles from the national park campground but is less crowded and has argueably better views and tent camping environment for less money. Plus hot showers are available. The setting is beautiful and wind/ sun shelter structures are available if you wish to... More

The bad: - carpet had not been vacuumed prior to us checking in. Sunflower seeds all over floor. - no TV. Did not know this prior to booking, just assumed there would be one. Not a big deal though. - housekeeping never made our beds or vacuumed. Just changed garbage and towels. Sunflower seeds still there 3 days later when... More

I booked this hotel way back for our summer vacation based on Trip Advisor. I wasn't prepared for how backwoods this place is. No TV is one thing and fine, but no phone? Especially when wifi sucks? The only place I had a decent signal is outside in sight of the office. As others have mentioned in their reviews there... More

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
