Comfy beds, nice toiletries, very clean hotel. AC didn't work, so we had to switch rooms and ended up giving up our king bed, so that was disappointing. You can tell that some upgrades have been made as far as linens etc; their next upgrade needs to be the ancient a 'a. Good breakfast. Didn't try the restaurant but the... More

I stayed there while part of a bus tour. The rooms were quiet and pleasant. The breakfast was adequate, but the breakfast room could not accommodate all the guests. I found out that the overflow could eat in the lounge, and that is where I went to avoid the crowd. The only other drawback was lack of phone reception within... More

This was a surprisingly inexpensive stay in early May, when the low season must be in place in Lead and the surrounding areas. The front desk staff was pretty nice, as they left the breakfast out for me. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I have to admit, though, it was odd to be the only person staying at the... More

Staff is welcoming and efficient. Hotel recently refurbished, very clean, white bedding, clean floors, sparkling bathroom. Beds & pillows luxurious & comfortable. Has double windows which eliminate outside noise from street. Breakfast was all you could want - eggs, biscuits/gravy, sausage, waffles, fruit, etc.

We stayed for three nights in July 2016 for a family reunion. They offered us discounted rates and had everything we needed. They do set out free breakfast food. It is the usual hotel breakfast fare; biscuits and gravy, fruit juice, yogurt, cereal, canned fruit salad, and some other stuff. They do also have laundry machines available for guests, and... More

We stayed for five nights while visiting the black hills. Our stay was very relaxing. Updated room with comfortable beds. The staff was polite and accommodating. The location was great, deadwood is five minutes away and spearfish is about twenty. Will definitely be back.

Needed a place to stay while visiting Mt Rushmore. Had a bit of difficulty finding place. Looks better in photo. Overall place was clean and staff friendly. Disappointed in breakfast as there was not much to choose from and waffle batter was awful. The doughnuts were good. Wish they would leave them out with coffee for a bit after breakfast... More

At the Blackstone Lodge & Suites we strive to accommodate our guests with a great breakfast experience. It sounds like you may have been at the tail end of the breakfast times. Also, our Hot Tubs are cleaned & shocked weekly, but sometimes due to heavy usage they may need cleaned mid week. Our maint dept works hard to keep... More

We booked for one night and when we got there we decided to stay another night. Darla and Austin help to accommodate us since it is Surgis this week coming and not a lot available. Austin was great serving us in the bar. Would recommend staying at this hotel. Thanks

This place is newly remodeled, very inviting. They have a free breakfast , which is tasty , and handy. The room where they serve it is like a nice dining room with a fireplace . The staff is very nice. We stayed there enroute to Mt. Rushmore. I would highly recommend it.

The Blackstone was our main hub during our visit to the Black Hills area. Before we even arrived, the service was outstanding. Originally booked into a double queen, we got great service from the staff in moving us into a king suite, which is exactly what we needed. We found the hotel very accommodating and a relaxing place to return... More
