We stayed here for one night in August 2016. We were already familiar with the area because we stayed at Cedar Pass Lodge down the road in June 2015. I selected Badlands Inn this year because it is a little cheaper than Cedar Pass Lodge. I was very pleasantly surprised by Badlands Inn - we like it a lot! It... More

Since there are FEW options in that area, we were a little anxious about staying there. But....the room was clean, beds were comfortable, and room was cool. Location is perfect for driving through The Badlands. You wake up and truly feel like you are in the middle of it all. Glad we took the chance and stayed - a fun... More

Great place to stay when visiting Badlands. There are chairs along the walkways, and picnic tables out front to sit and watch the sunset, which was incredible with the Badlands as a backdrop. And then we drove all of maybe 3 minutes to go to the night program inside the park. Room was fine, bed was comfortable. The sun shining... More

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

There is an evening happy hour of local wine tasting in the lobby of the Inn for our guests.

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).
