We were not particularly impressed with this B&B. The check in process was extremely disorganized and although the room was reasonably clean, it was very dated. The property was not well maintained and the diner was not somewhere that we would want to eat. While it was in a nice location, we thought that $160 a night was far, far... More

I hate to be in the minority of reviewers on TripAdvisor, but I would be misleading if I were to say Sweetgrass Inn was Very Good. It is an average B&B. I would probably give it 3 and a half stars if that were an option. Here is my reasoning: I understood going in that this would not be your... More

Hello Rob, I want to thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Sweetgrass Inn.

Check in is done at the restaurant, Lee's Shipwreck Inn, which opens at 5 PM and is on property. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, yet convenient to the highway for sightseeing. The linens were clean and the bed comfortable. There was plenty of hot water for showers. Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is made when ordered.... More

In my opinion this is not a traditional B&B. If you are looking for a roadside Motel with breakfast included, this is your place. Location is good. We had a large room and a large bathroom. Bed was comfortable. The rooms are clean but need updating. There were tacky little signs all over the place requesting that we do this... More

Dear hghstandards, Thank you for your review, while it definitely is not one that we are proud of, I wanted to address all of your concerns. You are correct, we are not your typical bed and breakfast, few, if any have a full restaurant on site. While most Bed and Breakfasts do a designated breakfast with a designated time for... More

Owner Monte makes you feel at home and was very helpful with special requests. We had a change of plans and needed to leave a day early. No problem. We needed a 50A RV outlet for our electric car.

Excellent accommodations, big rooms, nice bath and a wonderful made-to-order home style breakfast. We loved the location as it is in between Rapid City and Black Hills (10 min drive). I highly, highly recommend staying here if visiting Mt Rushmore.

Clean, nice looking place, breakfast was good and we stayed four nights. It was my wife and I first time staying at a bed and breakfast, we are hooked. So much more personal than a motel/hotel, actually dealt with owner. Monte gave us great information on events going on in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's so much to do and see and Sweetgrass' location is very convenient - within 1-49 miles of all the Black Hills attractions. Sweetgrass offers you beautifully appointed rooms, many amenities, several breakfast choices every day (served over the course of several hours) and much more. We're 6 miles south of Rapid City in a little valley as you head into the Black Hills towards Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Each room has a private bath (some have a jetted spa tub), flat screen TV/DVD combo, coffee/tea tray, loveseat and a table with chairs and/or a desk. Your memories start when you check in to the Sweetgrass. When you leave, take with you pleasant memories of your visit to Sweetgrass and the remarkable Black Hills of South Dakota. ... more   less
