This might be rated the best spot in Custer, but it was just average. Room was what I expect in a Motel 6. It was clean, although the shower needs to be re-caulked as the black stains were ugly to look at.

Friendly people. Good location. Visited Devil’s Tower, Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood, and the Badlands. Sat by the fire pit, nice ambiance. A little traffic noise though. Saw deer every day on the property. Cafe had a limited menu but the food and coffee were good.

Best motel ever! Wonderful, caring staff, clean, cheerful, quiet rooms, WiFi, laundry with free detergent, excellent coffee/pastry/breakfast place right on the premises. Cappuccino was the best coffee I’ve had on this 2 week vacation. The most outstanding thing is that there is so much for the kiddos to do here: indoor swimming pool, swings, tennis and basketball courts, large people-sized chess and Connect 4 set, a free video game that the kids loved (Eat the Centipede?), grass to run around on, a playhouse, monkey bars...Highly recommend. Very close to town too.

Great location, cute and clean! Despite the COVID restrictions they did an excellent job of making sure you had access to anything you might need. Sadly, we had to cut our 3 night stay short due to a pop up snowstorm that was heading towards the area threatening to drop up to 14 inches! Knowing that we would be driving on unfamiliar terrain and mountain roads through the next part of our journey, we were anxious to get out ahead of it. The staff was amazing! They were perfectly understanding of the situation and actually encouraged us to get on the road early. They even checked the radar and helped us figure out how far to drive and where to stop for the night to avoid the worst of it. It all worked out perfectly. The most incredible part, they gave us extra time to pack up and check out and then refunded our money for the last night, which we had prepaid. I fully expected that we would just have to forfeit that. Wow! We loved the area and will definitely visit again in the future, and when we do - we wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Highly recommend!
