So we booked this in January and had high hopes. They were almost all met! We stayed in the main lodge one night and then in the larger French Creek Cabin with another family we travelled with. We picked this place for three main reasons: 1. We liked Custer and wanted to be in that area. 2. Tripadvisor gave it... More

Cabin was cute but the bed was terrible! We almost left but we had to pay for our 2 nights in advance. The hot tub with the cabin soothed the hurts from the rock of a bed so we decided we could handle a couple of nights. Wish we had left and demanded a refund. I have health issues and... More

We stayed at the Rock Crest Lodge for two nights in a cabin, and we enjoyed our time there! The cabin was large and spacious, and included a small kitchen area with a mini fridge, microwave, and sink. The beds, although large, had small mattresses and weren't very comfortable. But otherwise, the cabin was clean and was a great place!... More

We stayed at the Rock Crest Lodge the first week of June for 3 evenings. The rooms were very neat & clean. The staff was very friendly & helpful. I left an electronic article behind that was needed. The staff was very helpful in locating it and making sure that it was returned to me. I would definetly recommend this... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We could not have chosen a better place to stay. Central location and very clean. Staff did everything to help us out, and the manager even let us use her personal lap top so we could transfer some pictures. I recommended to both of my sister in laws, and they also were... More

We stayed one night in the duplex building. The other room was being aired out because the smoke smell was overwhelming even though they are supposed to be nonsmoking. Our room was ok but we only had two bath towels and one wash cloth. Then after we checked out the manager called us and asked if we had mistakenly packed... More

Would definitely stay here again! Comfortable beds space, spacious room, reasonable price. Fridge microwave and coffee maker as well as lots of counterspace and cupboards. Michelle at desk was friendly and informative. Continental breakfast was basic but adequate If going to Sylvan Lake this is a great option!

We stayed here for three nights in August in two lodge rooms, our family of 5 and another family of 4. We booked the rooms together by phone while viewing the room descriptions on their website. We thought we booked 2 bedroom suites (2 separate bedrooms plus living area), after we checked in we learned that we booked a 2... More

We were traveling home to SC and decided to stop in the Mt Rushmore area. On our way we found this nice lodge and decided to spend the night. Excellent stopover spot. The front desk staff was very nice and offered us an extremely reasonable rate. Our room was a two room rustic suite with kitchenette, wi-fi, tv, and small... More

We spent three nights here in late September. The place seems to be pretty new. It is well kept and perfectly adequate for a sleeping room with a bathroom. There is enough room for a sink with a bit of counter space on each side and two upper cabinets just inside the entrance. The bed was comfortable. Our nights were... More
