Spent two nights at this hotel at the end of a two week tour of national parks. Perfect ending. Good proximity to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial. Clean room, comfortable bed, mini fridge, coffee maker, best water pressure of entire trip, free shuttle to airport. Absolutely no complaints.

The folks at the front desk were excellent -- very friendly and helpful, especially Jessie who gave us information on restaurants, and directions to attractions. The lobby was very attractive. There was a nice dining room where we ate breakfast. The room (king) smelled musty when we arrived. We were there 3 days; the smell either disappeared or we got... More

Overall, the experience was shockingly bad. We came up for a old friends wedding that was being held out in the Black Hills. We thought we could never go wrong with IHG but omg, I couldn't believe it. We arrived at about 2:30 (check in at 3, so they claim). Our room was not ready & when I inquired on... More

RSowles, I apologize that your room was not ready on time. We aim to have our rooms ready by 4pm, and 6:27 is way too late after a long day of travel to wait to get into your room. The housekeeping team and I are working hard to remedy this issue so we can get our guests into a clean,... More

I would have given three-and-a-half Stars if I could. Our family stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. We used it as a base for day trips to visit the area, including Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave, Wind Cave, Custer State Park, and Devil's Tower. It is reasonably close to downtown if you are interested in some of the local up-and-coming... More

Our family of five enjoyed our stay. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. They were quick to respond and made sure we enjoyed our stay. The only fallback was we were misled by Expedia to believe breakfast was included with our stay. It was not. Expedia should advertise restaurant available instead.

Stayed here before heading to Mount Rushmore and local attractions. Very nice name brand Hotel in the area. Clean comfortable rooms. Friendly helpful staff nice park area beside hotel close to restaurants and downtown nightlife. The breakfast is amazing it costs extra but it's worth it, very convenient, and Katie the omelette maker is awesome.

Asking for a price I got an very high number. I was told every hotel in the area does it during the season. Starting price was 249.00 USD without taxes and fees. I could negotiate to 179.00 USD plus taxes and fees. The noisy inside waterfall and the air condition channels are a steady noise disturbance. In the room you... More
