Just came back from 4 days at the Bavarian Inn in Custer. Stayed on the second floor, had a balcony to sit on and watch the afternoon storms and just chill at night (tried to see stars but by 10pm we were pooped). Went with my 8 year old son and we had a blast. The rooms are spacious and... More

We had a 4 night stay in early June. On arrival we were upgraded to a newly refurbished room on the 2nd floor, with a balcony. The room was attractively furnished & decorated - more in the style of a stylish city boutique hotel than a 'motel'. 2 double (comfortable) beds & new TV & a good size balcony with... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bavarian Inn from June 23 through June 27. We loved it! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is terrific, with many choices. And, best of all, the owners and the other employees are SO nice, so accomodating, and gave us wonderful advice about sightseeing in the area. We would definitely... More

Nice hotel for the price. Friendly and very clean. Bed was comfortable. Location is ideal as hotel is just under a mile from downtown Custer. Because Custer is a small tourist town, the main street where most hotels are found can be fairly busy and loud. This hotel is nicely removed from that traffic. My only negative is sound from...

I felt that the room was pretty average for the price. The soundproofing was not good, the bed was not particularly comfortable. Having driven past this motel many times, and finally deciding to give it a try, I have to say I was disappointed. I don't think I wil stay here again. Sorry!

We really enjoyed the hospitality provided to us at this Inn. The rooms were clean and bright, and provided lovely seating outside of our room. Two pools are on the grounds and they also allow pets. The nicest touch was a warm chocolate chip cookie and milk every afternoon for the guests available in the lobby!!

Our family loved staying here! Centrally located to all the Mt. Rushmore sites. Rooms were clean and staff very friendly with lots of useful sight seeing advice. One suggestion is to have the indoor pool temperature a little warmer. Unfortunately the onsite restaurant was closed when we stayed here.

We stayed here on our way to Montana. The Inn is conveniently located to all the hills attractions. Clean updated rooms, wi fi, comfortable beds, fridge/micro in room, 2 pools (one inside and one out), hot tub, expanded continental breakfast, laundry, games, pool table, basketball, tennis, and convenient parking. Attentive friendly staff. Great price for tourist season. The air conditioner... More

We loved this motel and the wonderful restaurant next door. The people were wonderful, the rooms clean and you can sit outside your room and enjoy the beautiful grounds. The icing on the cake was a tiny Bavarian rubber ducks for your bath that was provided!!

I had originally booked the economy queen room and was Disappointed because they are small, so for $20 well-spent dollars they upgraded us to a king suite with a jacuzzi tub and balcony. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful.
