We stayed in cabin #18 and it was excellent. It was one of there new cabins and it didn't disappoint. It was great they cleaned it everyday. So glad we went this route instead of cramming in a hotel. It was very quiet. I guess the only minor complaint would be is that you get very few channels on TV

Wow, we are getting great reviews on all the cabins and especially the new ones. We are doing two more this Fall with a totally different layout and hope the reviews continue. Glad you loved it. We would love to have you return. The TV thing is the best we can do out here in the mountains. You get 12... More

My family of four stayed in a clean cabin here instead of paying ($$$) at an overpriced hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Its close to Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorials, and all area attractions--very easy to Rapid City. If you're not staying at a National Park campsite and want to be in town, stay here.

Took my family to the Holy Smoke for a vacation. Rented one of the new cabins with the full kitchen #18. Great experience all around. Patio out back was a nice place to unwind at the end of the busy day. Clean and quiet. Our only complaints: Kitchen needs a full size coffee pot andWIFI did not work. Also recommend... More

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. I really need to address the WiFi issue with you and all who happen to have the same problem with access: Each WiFi system has a set amount of band width. Systems provided for guests free of charge were intended to get e-mail and light usage, unfortunately, some folks do business work and... More

We were referred to Holy Smoke when all the hotels in Rapid City and Keystone were full. It was a fortuitous event: it turned out to be better than our original lodging plans. The cabins offered are less expensive than your average hotel room and a lot nicer. We stayed in 2 different cabins: one was so new the carpeting... More

Well the Holly Smoke is the absolute best. #7 - The Nugget is the coolest, classic cabin, very old, yet the up -to-date bathroom and TV makes it the truly enjoyable place. This caqbin has all the charm of l8iving in a 100 year old cabin yet in todays life-style.

We rented a cabin for one night, The resort was so easy to find, and what a great location. Nestled in a wooded area, where the air was clean and pure, we felt like we were far out in the woods, yet we were a very short distance from the Keystone, and something like 1 1/2 mile to Mt. Rushmore.... More

I recently stayed at Holy Smoke Resort. The cabins are very quaint, clean, and located off the main road; tucked in the hills. I enjoyed the rustic decor, the separation of the units for privacy, the outside decks for morning coffee; and the fact that the unit was very clean and presentable.

We stayed here in our RV on the way through to Mount Rushmore. The lady at reception let us choose our site and was very friendly. Electric, water and waste were available at the site, but there were no other facilities in the campsite. Good for a quick one night stay for the price. Would stay again.

Brand new cabin with friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location for the attractions. Nicely decorated and comfrotable with full size appliances (except coffee maker) One bathroom with a stand up shower only which was fine since we were all adults but the shower unit itself was small and tight for the larger men. Towels and linens good quality. Real grocery... More
