We rented cabin 17 for one night and were extremely impressed. It looked brand new! Close to the best steakhouse I've ever eaten at, the Powerhouse. Lady at front was extremely helpful booking over the phone a month in advance and when I got there she was just as sweet as I imagined. We had coworkers sharing a place on... More

In Sept 2013 we stayed in The Nugget, cabin #7. It is a historical cabin built in 1893. It was very enjoyable. An extra room has been added on for a bathroom so that you now have modern conveniences. This is the only way I would "camp":) Located in a nice, quiet area outside of Keystone, yet still close enough... More

We stayed in cabins 13b and 15b. Both were awesome and the kids loved the loft areas. The location was perfect - central to everything - The Monument, Hill City, Custer State Park, the Alpine Slides, caves and restaurants. The staff at Holy Smokes were personable and welcoming. Thank you!

We stayed at your place just a few weeks ago and we both really enjoyed the location of the Cabins. Out away from Keystone town made it more enjoyable. Hardly any noise. 😀 The service we recieved was awesome. The House Keeper kept the entire area including the Cabin spotless. She was also very friendly. Couldn't ask for anything better... More

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 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
