We had reserved a patio room in the newer lodge a month before we traveled to Custer State Park. Instead , we were first given a room looking out over the parking lot. After a bit of discussion , we were finally given the type of room we had requested. We were congenial in our approach knowing that works best.... More

My wife and I like to stay inside of a park when we visit parks and we do not camp. This trip we are traveling with our Bernese Mountain Dog. The place is a throwback. The lodge is historic, and staying there gave us a very different feel than staying in one of the nearby towns. The grounds near the... More

The accomodations in the motel part of the State Game Lodge are OK - I'm sure rooms in the lodge itself or the Creekside Inn are quite a bit nicer. It is certainly adequate for a stay right in the park. We had a small fridge and a TV in the room, and despite what another reviewer said we were... More

The standard rooms are average but they off all you need for a good night's sleep and they are clean. There is no wifi in the rooms, only in the main lodge. The main lodge is impressive and you can't beat the location in the heart of Custer State Park. Sitting on the deck you can see wildlife passing by... More

We stayed here with our Insight Vacations Tour of the National Parks. The Creekside Inn room was a few hundred yards down the driveway from the older original building. What a beautiful room! We overlooked the creek out back, had a suite type room with a couch, microwave and refrigerator. Beds were comfortable, and room was clean. The bar and... More

This is not a AAA 4-Star resort. This is a delightful step back into the past at the time of President Coolidge. The full service property is fully equipped for your needs and is clean. The food was good and the bar, fun. The surrounding area, that's why you are here, is beautiful. Also offered on site was a chuck... More

We stayed in a small cabin by a creek. It was clean, comfortable and very quiet. It is close to many area attractions so it could be used as a vacation base. It was expensive compared to other hotels. However, we loved it!

Too many flys, killed a roach and then a spider in the shower and for the price they need a washer and dryer for public use and free breakfast. We were at places for nights at $45 or $55 and you had cereal and muffins. At least let your customers know before they get there that you do not serve... More

We spent 4 nights at the Creekside Inn, which is a part of the Game State Lodge in Custer State Park. Fantastic location, easy to get to everything in the park The room was large, comfortable and clean. It was nice to be apart from the Main Lodge but able to take advantage of the good dinners at the Lodge's... More
