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

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

Found this place my mistake which was a great surprise. Newly remodeled and very friendly staff. Best beds!!!! Comfortably appointed rooms with all of the amenities. Deadwood shuttle does not go as far as Lead but the cab was $9.00 each way which eliminated the difficulties of parking our RV. Lots of free parking. Breakfast buffet and small lounge on... More

Clean and inviting. We got a room with 2 queen and a sleeper sofa. Very large room but perfect for our family. Bathroom had a very large tub. It was so inviting I decided after camping 4 days in Yellowstone a bath would feel good. Went to fill it and no plug! Called and took them 20 min to bring... More
