Had a wonderful stay for 3 nts. at Battle Creek. Sine and Tammy were were helpful, pleasant and accommodating. Location couldn't be more convenient to see all the sites of Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Needles Hwy, & Crazy Horse. Always nice to stay parked at the end of the day and walk into town for the evening for dinner,... More

We started our trip out in an awful hotel in Rapid City and called around until we reached Tammy who was incredibly helpful and was able to get us a room at Battle Creek....we loved it! The room was small for 5 of us, but it was worth it for all of their personal touches, breakfast and help. Cine and... More

The owners Cine and Tammy were very personable and took the time to actually get to know us and were great hosts. We grilled and the deck was lovely, the balcony was nice to relax on in the evening. The room was a little small for 4 adults, I thought the bed was too firm but i am used to... More

Thank you to the owners for a wonderful stay!! I always enjoy staying at hotels owned by individuals and appreciate all their hard work and attention. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the outdoor space felt like someone's home. Fire pit, gas grills and comfy chairs for all to enjoy. The breakfast was WONDERFUL!! Homemade breakfast burritos and fresh fruit...... More

What a cute and quaint lodge!! The lobby was decorated with antiques and western style pieces. I loved it! I wish we could have made it to breakfast, but after a long drive and dinner in town (walking distance), we slept in. The room was clean, decorated nicely, and met the approval of the "hotel brat"-- ME!!! It was a... More

While I was happy with the location and accessibility to downtown....I feel that this establishment could do more to deserve their high trip advisor rating. The beds WERE comfortable but the room was VERY small. The black out curtains and opaque shade made it even seem darker and smaller. The shade broke while we were there and instead of fixing... More

We have never visited this area before and were so happy with the location of this lodge. I loved that it was small and you were treated like a friend not just another guest. The rooms were very well kept and restocked daily. The beds were very comfortable with 4 pillows per bed in different firmness types. This is located... More

This inn was almost like staying at a bed and breakfast. Tammy and Cine, the owners, are very friendly and want to ensure you have a pleasant stay. A small home cooked breakfast will greet you in the morning, along with great conversation and recommendations about what to see and do. There is no pool or amenities found at larger... More
