Room was perfect, clean and reasonably spacious. No chairs etc, just beds , table 32 inch flat panel tv. Convenient location, lots of parking,. The breakfast was above average and the patio in back is very well landscaped with a great view. Balconies on many rooms are nice.

We had IHG points, so I can't comment on the price other than to say that this property looked superior to the others in the area for a similar price. The view out back on the patio is magnificent. The hotel was very clean and the room very comfortable. I also noticed that the theme park across the street that... More

This hotel has a cabin type theme going on with it. Overall the hotel was kept up and looked well taken care of. The kid enjoyed the breakfast mostly but were disappointed there was no bacon or chocolate milk. Unlike other Holiday Inn's we stayed at there was no "to go" bags. The rooms were pretty much the same as... More

This motel is only nine years old. I loved the rock on the outside, the decor of the lobby and the open staircase that looked down on the lobby and breakfast area. What was awesome about this motel was the patio outside the breakfast area. There was a waterfall with landscaping, a stone fire pit and a very nice patio... More

Generally a very good Holiday Inn Express as location was very convenient to our visits in the area, i.e. My Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Hill City (teddy bear town), and surrounding small towns that brought you back to the old west. Service was good and amenities including in door pool were up to standards for Holiday Inn. A good experience.

I wish all hotels we stayed at were this nice. We were traveling as a family of 4 on a roadtrip to the Black Hills and then on to Yellowstone. This was by far our favorite place we stayed. We really appreciated our room that was actually like a 1 BR suite with 2 king beds. The master bedroom had... More

We stayed at seven different hotels during our trip through the plains states and this was by far the best. Clean quiet room with a small balcony. The location was great, just down the road from both Custer State Park and the Crazy Horse monument. The hotel even provides discount ticket for entrance to see Crazy Horse. Breakfast was better...

We were completely surprised by this hotel. It was in the lovely, quaint town of Custer, only 20 minutes from Mt. Rushmore. The hotel was clean, modern and well run. A hot breakfast was included and it was very good. The pool was easily accessible and the fitness room was adequate for a quick workout before or after traveling. It... More

We wanted to stay close to the attractions of Crazy Horse and Mt Rushmore, but did not want to pay the hefty price that Rapid City charges, tourist trap prices.

Over all the Holiday Inn express in Custer SD was pretty well taken care of and clean. We had a 2 queen 3 floor balcony, which would be my only complaint would be that the place as only one elevator and it's small. If you can get a room on first floor or even second which has a big staircase... More

We appreciate all feedback & thank you so much for letting us know about the lint area by the front check in. We want to create a great first impression & that area is unacceptable. I will make sure we check into that. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of our hotel & the Black Hills area. More
