This motel has a great location right outside Custer with an easy drive to Custer State Park, Wind Cave National Park, Mount Rushmore, and Crazy Horse. It is an older motel, but well maintained, clean, and with a very friendly staff that was accommodating when we needed to leave unexpectedly a day earlier than our booking. It isn't fancy, but is well set up for families with an indoor pool, games, and guest laundry service. Unfortunately, the as we visited in early October the onsite restaurant was already closed for the season, but there is a nice bagel cafe on the main street of Custer.

I received a text welcoming me to the inn. I couldn't estimate my arrival time but that wasn't an issue. Friendly staff. My room was lit up when I opened the door like it was waiting for me. Great base for exploring the area

The room was clean and updated with modern decor. The beds were very comfortable as well. Our kids loved the pool and game room too. And the price was very reasonable. Would definitely stay here again.

Cute little place to stay, staff was wonderful! Texted us to check on our ETA which I thought was a nice touch. A little dated but clean. They gave great food recommendations and their place was convenient to everything we wanted to do in the area. Definitely recommend!

Our stay at the Bavarian Inn in Custer was very nice. We were given a free upgrade to our room and a box of goodies from the Feel Good Cafe was in our room when we arrived. The people that run the place are very thoughtful and welcoming. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location of the Bavarian Inn is perfect for visiting area sites. Custer state park, Crazy Horse, Mt Rushmore, Spearfish Canyon,etc.Little town of Custer is nice, too. Good food at the Buglin Bull. We were very excited to enjoy the Buffalo Roundup and Festival!! We would stay at Bavarian Inn again.
