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

We loved it here! It was so clean!!!! I liked staying in Custer much much more than the vibe in Keystone. Custer felt like a real town. The front desk was so kind and the whole town was a gem. Nothing else in Custer could have been better.

Last minute reservation, very accommodating, clean & tidy rooms and grounds. Easy to find. Conveniently located. Really close to Mt. Rushmore and the Needles. Hot shower and reasonably priced. I would totally stay here again.
