I stayed here during a trip westward with my family. The lodge itself is gorgeous, blending the historic architecture with modern conveniences. Rather than staying in the lodge itself, our rooms were more traditional hotel rooms on the same grounds, although the price and description would suggest otherwise. Breakfast was also quiet expensive, but the closest restaurants are a considerable... More

We stayed in the Eisenhower bedroom during Sturgis week-what a deal! A historic room, right in the heart of Custer Park (read: beautiful riding country), and this was the least expensive option we could find in all of the Black Hills area! The restaurant has really good food, though maybe a bit pricey. The room was a little small by... More

What a great experience. We stayed off season so the main lodge was closed. We were at creek side clean comfortable and great staff!!! Had dinner at one of the lodges top notch for being off season the chef was fantastic. WE enjoyed all the hiking in the area not a lot to do for kids this time of year

So lovely to stay in the Park and see deer walking past early morning plus swallows nesting in the porch at the Lodge. Our room was in the building to the side of the main lodge and did not look much from the outside but was surprisingly lovely inside. The buffalo themed quilts and pillows were a nice touch. The...

Our family enjoyed our stay here. We had two queens and a pull out sofa with a patio overlooking a beautiful creek. Mountain style decor with top quality amenities. The Game Lodge was short walking distance to have our meals. The beds were very comfortable and the room and bathroom was clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful about things... More

We drove to Custer State Park from Cheyenne and enjoyed the scenery a little too much and it was getting late. As a heavy mist descended it was a bit of a race against time to travel along narrow bendy roads, even if well sign posted to get to the Lodge. We got there in the dark and checked in... More

The location is excellent - very convenient for everything in the park with wildlife at the door. Local store not well equipped but at least it was open. The rooms were rather gloomy, the food a bit "odd" (not sure what to make of it) and the tea positively cold. Free Wi-Fi but the quality of the connection was poor.

Will not come back. Yes, I am a bit of a hotel snob. Only to the extent that I expect a completely clean 'room' and one in which I am comfortable walking around barefooted or at least in socks. Stayed in the house keeping cabin #2. It is literally twenty paces from the highway (16A)....too close. Thought we would have... More

We stayed in one of their cabins. It was very clean and the furnishings more than adequate. We could park right at the door. Maid service came around daily with any needed supplies. It was very quiet and a great location for driving the wildlife trail. We would definitely stay again.
