Upon the first day, our room had dead bugs, including a suspicious beetle in the bathroom. I was charged for having an third person when the website states 4 people per 2 queen room. We accidentally left a pillow behind but were told the manager would look for it and call us back, they never called.the second day, on our way home, the room didn't have working outlets, dead bugs again, the tubs coating was pealing, and the shower handle broke off. It looked like instead of properly cleaning the room, the person just made the beds and left a stack of clean towels on the table (and not on the clean towel rack).

The last time we stayed here was June 2018. I made an error and put the review with a different place so just making the correction. We have always enjoyed staying here. Beautiful views from the grounds. Good people in the office for check in and out. Breakfast wasnt fancy but was ok and enough. Beds good and nicely decorated. We've always enjoyed staying here.

A bit pricey for the room but it is in the middle of nowhere. Perfect location for the Badlands. Doesn’t seem like the office is open much. Arrived at 4:45 and it was closed, found our keys in the box. The keys didn’t work. Lucky someone was in the laundry. Paid for a rollaway and didn’t get it. Breakfast is not served here but up the road at another place, we will see how that goes.

The bad reviews had me nervous about staying here, but we found it totally fine. The room was clean and comfortable.You can sit on a bench outside your room with an incredible view of the Badlands. I would recommend you bring your own soap or bath wash because there was just one tiny little bar of soap. Also there was no hairdryer that I found.

This is the perfect location for spending time in the Badlands. The hotel is located less than a mile outside the park boundary. The one staff we saw at check in was very nice. Unfortunately, this place was dumpy, run down and unclean. There was left over food scraps in the fridge. There were dead bugs on the carpet and a few live ones in the room also. The amenities include a fridge, coffee maker, and ice is stored outside near the office. No one was in the office after 10 p.m. and no one had returned to run the office when we went to check out around 9:30 a.m. the next day. We didn't know what to do in order to check out, so we just left the key cards in the room and closed the door. We paid $137 for one night in a dumpy room. If we return to the area, I'd stay someplace else. The price was too high for the lack of amenities and a dumpy, outdated room.
