We were really nervous after reading the reviews... And even tried to cancel... BUT Thank Goodness we didn't! The tried to cancel = the reason why it wasn't 5 stars. Word to the warning... You must cancel 48 hours beforehand. Which, we called around 36 hours... So. We had a 3rd room which we really didn't need... But took advantage... More

Staying on the second floor without an elevator made out stay less than a 5 rating. And the restaurant close by leaves something to be desired. However this hotel has beautiful views of the badlands and the park. It was so easy to jump in the car and get on the road into the park and see the scenery. Our... More

I was reluctant to stay here after reading the reviews but decided to anyway. Yes, some of the building needs some minor work. But I found the room to be very clean and the staff to be friendly. It is a simple room, but functional. There were several flies in the room, which given the area I will cut them... More

I was concerned about staying here from some of the reviews I read, but I was surprised that it was actually a good stay. Yes, it's older, but it was clean, smelled good, nice sheets, and very convenient. If you're on a budget, this is a good place to stay. We'd stay again for sure.

This hotel is located about a half mile from the entrance to Badlands National Park and it has a view of the badlands from most rooms. It also has very little competition in this area. That's why people stay here. The rooms are adequate but not great. The breakfast is also adequate but not great. But we didn't stay here... More

Tried to cancel reservation three days in advance. I was sent to voicemail during hours when the message stated that they were open to take calls. I left message to call back and received no call back. Called again later to get put on hold for so long that I doubt I would have ever been able to talk to... More

Great location as far as the National Park. View is amazing if you have the time to enjoy it. Continental breakfast was decent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was great that we received a bag of ice for the road upon checkout as well. Flies were horrendous outside - bring bug spray. They weren't like they... More

Most rooms face the mountains and the view was simply glorious from our room on the second floor. We also enjoyed the many swallows that nested on the walkway. Breakfast had good selection of cereal breads fruit yogurt and boiled eggs. Room was good size and mostly comfortable So why wasn't this a higher rating? The tub was stained and... More

This is a great option if you want to be close to the badlands. It's about a mile outside the park. This is a great place to stay if you want to do the Rangers night talks. Nothing special about the motel. It's clean, the staff were friendly and it has nice views. We would stay here again. The breakfast... More

After reading the reviews, I was unsure of what we'd find, but was pleasantly surprised to find a clean motel just outside the south entrance to the park. Since the motel is set off by itself, you are able to take in a great sunrise and sunset view. Breakfast was adequate and a great asset since there are very few... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Each of our 20 rooms has a magnificent view of the Badlands. You will rest well in our double queen rooms with upgraded high thread count linens/with bamboo towels (the linens use less energy to dry and are made with long bamboo fibers making them last longer than cotton towels), free WiFi, AC/Heat, cable TV, Energy Star Microwave & Mini refrigerator, Energy Star Coffee Maker with organic and shade grown coffee and complimentary breakfast in the lobby. There is an evening happy hour of local wine tasting in the lobby of the Inn for our guests. Night Skies in the Badlands are particularly dark and we encourage you to experience the FREE Ranger led tours in the amphitheater located inside the Park, less than a mile away. We are an Environmentally Friendly Inn and encourage recycling, plus we are a 100% non-smoking property and welcome pets. (There is a $10/night additional fee per pet). Children 15 years and younger stay free in same room with adult. We are the closest lodging to Badlands National Park (an easy walk from the Interior entrance) and only 9 miles from I-90 at Exit 131 and the Minute Man National Missile Monument. ... more   less
