I wasn't expecting much from this budget motel and from the outside it doesn't look like much either, so it was a pleasant surprise to arrive and find a lovely, bright cottage-style room. It's not plush, but it's pleasant and clean, and it's the kind of place where the woman in charge remembers your name.

We do road trips and so we have some experience of motels. This one is good. Not large, but good. Charming staff, very comfortable, we consider it a stroke of luck finding this place. They don't do breakfast but do sell a card for $5 per person that is exchangeable for a really good breakfast at the Wrangler Diner just... More

We stayed at the Black Hills Mile High motel during the week of the rally. The place was superclean super cozy and just what we needed as we were riding motorcycles during the day and needed a comfy bed to stay in the evenings. Would deff stay here again.

Booked 3 nights and although the rooms are small it was just perfect! Very well maintained and Pam the manager was so friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable, shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water. Custer is close to all and quiet

We booked this motel over the internet for two nights, partly because it's location in Custer was great for visiting Wind Cave N.P., the Crazy Horse Memorial, Mount Rushmore, and then heading home, and partly because it's among the least expensive we found in the area. It was great for that amount of time while we were busy both days... More

When we first arrived and saw the small but pretty little motel, we were concerned that this would be what we had hoped. Once we were inside, we were more than pleased. It was not huge but the space was well allocated and we had everything we needed. Wireless connection, frig, flat-screen tv and more. It was meticulously clean and... More

We were not sure where to stay and that was definitely the right choice. We felt immediately welcome, the owner was extremely nice and the whole the place is very clean and has a homy feel to it. One of the better motels we've stayed in on our trip, a pleasant surprise after the generic, doubtfully-clean chain motels.

These little cabin places to stay are unique but need some updating. The one we stayed in shared a front door with the cabin next to ours and every time the people left it sounded like they were in our room. They are very small and compact. We had a couple of bugs in our room but I don't think... More

This is the kind of motel I grew up with: simple, clean, friendly, flexible, affordable. Absolutely perfect location from which to explore the Black Hills. It is on a main drag that is convenient, but not too noisy.

We enjoyed our stay in Black Hills Mile Hi Motel. The room we had was a bit small. The bathroom had only a shower stall, but the water flow was smooth. The sink in the bathroom was a bit of a problem, as the glass shelf directly above it made shaving and brushing your teeth a bit more challenging to... More
