Great place with lodge and cabins. Updated with the latest amenities. Price was reasonable for the comfort and peace and quiet we received. Adequate breakfast. Very pleased with this motel and the town of Custer itself.

Got to this lodge later in the evening, but we were able to get a room. The staff was very friendly and let us see the room before we booked it. The rates were affordable, and the room was more of a suite than a 'room with two double beds'! With a couch, kitchenette, and a separate bedroom, this lodge... More

Stayed in cabin 217 and loved the front porch over looking the town. You are right in town but up on a hill and we did not hear any traffic noise. There were 2 of us and the cabin is large and had just what we needed. Our bed was comfy, large bathroom. No complaints at all. Would stay here... More

We have stayed here many times over the years in the motel rooms as well as the cabins. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It is located close to Custer State Park as well as Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument and the Black Hills. Always clean with good beds. The rooms are large, ours had a nice sitting area,... More

If you're on the road you need a place to stay that's clean, convenient to most everything within walking distance stop in and give it a look. Stayed in one if the rooms near the highway and it was quite because the bedroom is in the back away from the highway.

My family of 4 stayed for three nights while visiting Custer. The lodge is close to Custer State Park, Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore. However, the phone and light in the room did not work, one of the beds was broken, staff never replenished soap/shampoo/coffee. We spoke with the staff on the second day about our concerns and they said... More

Great cabin, very clean with plenty of space. Staff was very accommodating, too. Close to everything we came to the Black Hills to do. Kids lived the pool and open areas around the cabin, we enjoyed the local wine tasting room. Definitely would stay here again!

The cabins are located up on the hill and away from the noisy road since the town was filled with bikers for Sturgis. The cabin was clean and had all the accommodations for staying multiple nights with fridge, sink, microwave. There was a queen bed along with two singles along with a small kitchen table and there was plenty of... More

We stayed in the family cabin (which for some reason is not pictured on their website). It was comfortable, but smelt funny. We went to dollar store down the road and bought air freshener which helped. The location is very good! Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance and, even though it sits on the main street, cabin was... More

This was our second trip to the Black Hills. Our family of four stayed at Rock Crest two years ago and again this year. Both experiences were excellent. Staff was very helpful with anything we needed. Cabins were spacious and clean. I recommend the cabins at Rock Crest for a family vacation.
