This hotel is in a great location to get to all of the nearby attractions. The front desk lady must have been new because she had no idea what she was doing. The price was definitely one of the cheaper options in town and everything was nice and clean. Great place! A huge downfall that I experienced was the walls.... More

We stayed here on our visit to Custer State Park. It was close to the park and other attractions. Enjoyed the indoor pool and the breakfast was nice. The hotel has a western frontier look. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We might have rated this hotel better at any other time than during the Sturgis rally. What a nightmare of a time to visit the Black hills and Custer. The room has weaknesses, no fridge and other services but if my ears were not ringing from the sound of motor bikes I might have noticed the western feel of the... More

We stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed how close it was to beautiful Custer State Park, Crazy horse monument and Mt. Rushmore. For the price this hotel was the ticket, but we missed having a microwave and small refrigerator in our room. The breakfast was as other reviewers have said very carb heavy. It would have been nice to have... More

We stayed here in late July 2014. The building is older but the rooms are nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and manager out front and present. They have small pool and a lounge area downstairs with a TV, books, puzzles, microwave and laundry room. When we stayed the rooms were pricey, my only negative. Breakfast was good. Convenient location.... More

Second night of our Western adventure. We originally booked this thinking we would drive to Mount Rushmore for the July 4th fireworks. However we had been sight seeing , and driving all day . So we decided to spend the evening in Custer. We walked all over town--which was cute and they had fireworks at dark. The hotel was a... More

Stayed at the Econo Lodge earlier this summer, very nice weekend. Major plus is its location right in downtown Custer but at a very affordable price. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially at the front desk where they were able to suggest some nice places to visit. Kind of place you might miss but I'm glad I found it!!

This rating may seem harsh, but sometimes circumstances may have you staying in, or even planning on staying in, a "two star" kind of place. It's doable, but there are or should be better options. Things got off to a bad start with initial room booking being with a central reservations company versus booking direct with the establishment; lesson learned... More

Hotel is downtown in the heart of custer sd. I booked this hotel expecting what i received. The rooms looked dated by the pictures. TV was upgraded in my room. Airconditioner is from the 1980's.

We spent one quick night at this hotel and were very happy. Good price, clean room, right in the center of town. Beds were fairly comfy, pillows were tiny! Clean but small indoor pool, carb loaded but sufficient continental breakfast. Friendly staff. A 5 minute drive to the Crazy Horse Memorial.
