Great room, clean, priced right, near many of the local destinations. Pool is just a pool, with hot tub, but was loved by our kids. Continental breakfast was good, nothing too exciting. Beds comfortable and laundry facilities were appreciated.

We stayed 4 days here while visiting the Black Hills, We enjoyed the pretty city and nearby attractions. The hotel was ok but we had trouble getting the toilet fixed and could not get another blanket that we asked for.

We had a wonderful experience at the Best Western Buffalo Ridge Inn Custer SD, The staff were friendly and anxious to help with any concerns that were presented. The room was big enough to relax and very fresh and clean. The flat screen TV was excellent for viewing from the bed or the cozy chair. The pool and hot tube... More

We were there over the Memorial day w/e so the place was crowded. Pretty average motel with adequate parking. Pleasant staff but chaotic organisation at breakfast which we had pre-booked from the UK with the hotel. Not sure how many rooms there are but you need to be there before 7.30 am to have any chance of a table (just... More

I'm sorry you had a less than satisfactory stay at our hotel. We appreciate your comments about breakfast, and I wanted to let you know that our breakfast staff is much more experienced now and better able to deal with the high demand traffic. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. More

hotel is average nothing spectacular. There are nicer hotels in the area. Breakfast is the average waffles coffee cereal toast and juice. This hotel could use updating rooms are still in the 70"s. Check in area and breakfast area have been updated. This hotel could be a real winner if the owners would put some money back into the decor.

Room smelled musty. I think it probably was a smoking room previously! Staff not friendly! Not as clean as it should be. Over priced for the quality of this motel. I would not recommend this motel nor would I stay there again!

Four of us were on vacation in South Dakota. Our choice was to stay in Custer, South Dakota for three days at Best Western Buffalo Ridge, Custer, South Dakota. I would like to take this opportunity to say "job well done." Overall service was outstanding. We'll be back.

Every morning we were treated to a variety of items for breakfast. Our room was always clean when we returned from sight-seeing. The bed was very comfortable. Staff went out of their way to assist us after we experienced a motorcycle accident while in the area. We were transported from the emergency room to the hotel and the next day... More

If you are planning a trip to the Black Hills, I would recommend talking a look at what Custer has to offer. We were very satisfied with the Best Western. It was clean, the staff was friendly and it provided a good value as compared to the hotels in the other cities in the area. In addition it is very... More

Nice hotel, clean! Need a larger area for breakfast. The pull out couch was more like a cot, which was not good for our group. If we traveled here again, I would stay at this facility. We were unable to use the pool, but it looked nice.
