My boyfriend and I stayed here after visiting Mt. Rushmore. The drive here, a little under 2 hours, was very beautiful. We were kindly greeted in the lobby, and instantly drawn to the family run appeal of the motel. Our room was larger than expected, and equipped with a mini fridge and drip coffee maker. After a great night's sleep,... More

We stayed for one night. Parking in the center courtyard is convenient. Our room had a strange layout, you had three steps up just inside the door. There was a VERY shaky hand rail. The toilet was in a tight space with a door, but the shower and vanity were on opposite walls of an adjacent room with no door.... More

My 2 sisters and I stayed here on our way across country. Bear Lodge has a room that has 3 double beds - perfect for us. One bed is in an adjoining room which has only an internal door but no TV: privacy if you are a family traveling. The rooms all face into a common center area which has... More

Stayed here as part of cross country trip. Stayed based on online recommendations and was not dissappointed. This was a stop over between Mt. Rushmore and Devil's Tower, and we got there late, around midnight. Front desk (owner maybe, seems locally run) offered to make us sandwiches! Just a nice, clean, well run motel. Really good value considering what the... More

Ken and his staff were more than accommodating making sure that all of our needs were met. They are all extremely pleasant and friendly and take the time to stop and chat and get to know their visitors. Our rooms/bathrooms were spotless from the start of our stay until the day we left. The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit,... More

The Bear Lodge was in the perfect location for our trip, which included Mt Rushmore, Jewel Cave, and Devil's Tower. We really appreciated that our room had 3 queen beds, which is hard to find. The room was clean and comfortable, and the TV even had Netflix, so my children were delighted to watch a movie before bed. The breakfast... More

I was there on the way from Rapid City to Yellowstone (after a day visiting Mr. Rushmore and Crazy Horse). I was very pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the room. The proprietors were extremely gracious and helpful in recommending time to visit Devil's Tower and eating options. The breakfast was better and more complete than is usual... More

This is an older hotel but it is very clean. We had a room with 3 Queen beds--perfect since I have 3 kids. The breakfast was good and satisfying. I appreciated the small refrigerator. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are heading to Devils Tower.

At first glance, this hotel reminded me of the terrible, cheap hotels that my family stayed at when I was younger. (You know the kind... The ones, that even as a kid, we never felt comfortable closing our eyes to get some sleep.) As an adult, I've become accustomed to larger, chain hotels - shying away from the smaller, "budget"...
