We stayed here 3 days while visiting Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave. Nice rooms, comfortable bed, clean, quiet, great buffet, opened early so we could get on the road, big indoor pool, nice surroundings, a little out of town but within walking distance. Reasonable prices

Great experience. Quality constructed hotel. Bkfst area very large, plenty of tables, excellent flow of buffet food. Food selection above average. Staff excellent. A little pricy, but all facilities are this time of year.

We used the Holiday Inn as our base camp for doing the local attractions- Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave National Park, Custer State Park, Mammoth Site, etc... We traveled with our 3 sons who are 10, 14 & 16. Our nephew joined us as well who is also 14. In other words, teens! :) We were able to get... More

Used this as hub for Mount Rushmore, Crazyhorse, Custer State Park, Hot Springs spots and was a great choice. Clean, reasonably priced for location, with good indoor pool for kids. Would recommend for family travelers who want a comfortable location close (but not too close) from the tourist spots in the area.

We were walk-ins at the Holiday Inn Express in Custer after having a horrible experience at another inn next door. Top notch professional & helpful manager & staff behind the front desk. Not only got us a great room, but got it ready for early check in as well. We upgraded to a 2 room suite as it was the... More

This hotel was the best location for our trip - it's a great location close to Custer and Black Hills parks, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and also a good offshoot to Spearfish, Sturgis, Deadwood and more. We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel seems fairly new and is on a highway just west of Custer in a row of hotels.... More

We stayed here during a cross country trip and were very happy with the friendly staff and clean accommodations. They are located right across the street from Bedrock City campground and close to Custer state park, Needles Highway, Crazy Horse Memorial and Mt. Rushmore. We would highly recommend the Needles Highway drive(route 87 through black hills) and Iron Mountain Road(route... More

A nice hotel that appeared relatively new, was clean, and in a great location for visiting the local attractions. The room was clean and quiet. We only stay at hotels for a good nights sleep and breakfast. This one worked out well. The breakfast had limited selections, but was fine for us.

ROOMS/BEDS: We got a king suite with a sofa bed because we were traveling as a family (and quite frankly enjoy having a larger king bed as a couple!). The room was larger than average, and felt new and clean. The bathroom & bathtub were huge, and the shower just ok (showerhead not really that good, but pressure was fine).... More

This hotel was a welcome stop on a long driving trip. We checked in, and were pleasantly surprised with a balcony. Our view was of the highway, but there was a Flintstone's theme park across the street that provided a great, entertaining view.
