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

The cabins are fairly new and modern on the inside. Have slept in better beds but they served the purpose. Parking right in front of your cabin. Cabins are quiet. One thing I would suggest is they mount their flat screen TV on the wall instead of the TV stand. The table is right in front of the TV so... More

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
