I rented one of the cabins at Americas Best Inn by the River, Hot Springs, SD, the week of the Sturgis Rally, 2015. The town is located at the South entrance of Custer/ Mt. Rushmore. A picturesque place. Regarding the cabin: The bed(s) were very uncomfortable. I slept the first night in the bed; the remaining nights I slept on... More

The town is a little run down and we were shocked at the poor choice of restaurants to eat in the evening. Riverwalk was overgrown and spoilt by concrete walls. The manager at the hotel was very obliging, but the room was spoilt for us by an awful smell. To be fair the manager did warn us that they had... More

Came to Hot Springs for a single overnight between camping trips. Very clean room and friendly service. Nice location by river and walking path. Easy walk to local restaurants. Kids had some cereal for breakfast, but we didn't stay long-there is selection of bread, bagels, waffles, cereal and hard boiled eggs. We would definitely stay here again.

The town was not that impressive to me, but the front desk help was very nice and courteous. The room was clean and we were able to get a room on the first floor. A little noisy but by the time we were ready to sleep it seemed much quieter. The hotel itself was OK, but I am not certain... More

My family stayed two nights. Ahmed at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. The furniture was outdated, but we didn't mind since it was clean and well kept. The room had adequate lighting, and was nice and bright with the curtains open. The air conditioner was awesome, and the hairdryers... More

Hot Springs is a beautiful little town. The hotel is in the center of town. There are hiking trails nearby next to a waterfall. The front desk was very helpful. The room was nice and the breakfast was average. There is so much to see in this area. We would stay at this hotel again.

We stopped in without a reservation, and they had a double queen room available. The rooms were clean and well furnished. Great overall value, and it was nice to be across the street from a restaurant after a long day of driving. The breakfast was free and overall good. Might be nice to sub the hard boiled eggs for scrambled.

The owner runs a very clean, nice and friendly property. You can see that he takes great pride in his motel. Everything was really great and we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the middle cabin on the 4th of July weekend and we couldn't have stayed at a better place. We had reservations at a place south of town... More
