“Super friendly staff! Room not so nice-!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here during the fourth of July weekend 2013. When entering the room, it was musty. Staff couldn't have been friendlier and the location suited our needs well. Breakfast was excellent and freshly made but not enough seating. We had a great view of the fireworks right from the balcony outside of our room.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We stayed at the Dokota Cowboy Inn on June 1st, 2013, the room were freshly remoduled and spotless. The two young men that were running the place were extremely polite, freindly, and helpful. The hot breakfast was great with hot food not just pastries. The hotel is conventiently located close to shopping, dinner, fuel and entertament. We had a great nights sleep and would highly recommend this hotel for it's name "america's Best Value" and friendly service. we will stay here next time wee ar ein Custer.

Room Tip: Stay in the addition, it's farther away from the street

We would highly recommend this motel when visiting Custer and the surrounding monuments in South Dakota. We were walking distance to everything in downtown Custer and easy drive from the Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore Memorial, Custer National Park, and other countless attractions. The motel hosts an outdoor swimming pool, basketball,mini golf, and a playground.
The room was very clean and spacious. All of the staff members were friendly and accommodating. This was by far the best place we stayed on our road trip across the nation.

We really enjoyed our 3-day stay here.They place needs a little sprucing up but it is kept clean and neat. The staff is great (mostly foreign college students) and very attentive. Breakfast was REAL good. Nice pool and the crolf game was fun. I doubt we'll go to Custer again but if we do we'll stay here again.

This was only one of many hotels we stayed at during our eleven day driving vacation. There were none better and only two others as good. The staff was outstanding - making sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was great - better than motel/motels costing much more. This is one of only three that we now recomend to family, friends, and facebook.

Room Tip: We are too inexperienced with traveling to give good hints. One would be to get to breakfast early...

Though the interiors need to be updated, the room was comfortable and surprisingly clean. The hot breakfast was a real surprise! It was the best breakfast we've had at a motel/ hotel. Beating breakfasts at hotels that cost twice as much!
