This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We stayed in room 119 and it was very nice. It was very large with two queen beds, a couch, big arm chair along with table and chairs and fully equipped. My favorite part was the night light in the bathroom! The staff was very nice and helpful. The location was central to everything.... More

We rented a pet friendly cabin for the night and were not disappointed. Our cabin was set up on the hill and had a view of the valley. There were deer walking all over the place. There was nice outdoor seating on our deck and the interior amenities were really nice also. The Lodge is close to Mt Rushmore and... More

Our room was very clean. Bed was comfortable. Everything worked great, even a cold refrigerator. There were ample supplies in the room. I would recommend staying get here. It would be good for kids also. There is a nice pool on the property.

Saw this place from the street and stopped in to check their rates. They offered a significant discount off the listed rate and let us view the room before paying. It was quiet and very clean with a comfortable bed. Free continental breakfast and good wifi service! They have traditional rooms and cute cabins on a hill. Our room had... More

Clean cabins that provide everything you need. They are located right in Custer yet back off the highway slightly to give you that "in the woods" feel. Watched deer grazing off our front deck. Staff was very pleasant to work with and even let us look at one of the cabins before booking. Would recommend checking these cabins out.

Stayed in a cabin with a deck and loft. It had a furnished kitchenette and couches with two beds in the loft. Large bathroom with a double sink. Breakfast was great and April is just amazing. She has about as much energy as our kids!

Since we booked this only 2 days in advance we were very pleased with the accommodations. We had one of the queen loft cabins which was perfect for our family of 5. Two queen beds in the loft and a pull out in the main cabin. We were happy to have the kitchen, as the continental breakfast was minimal. We... More

My Husband and I stayed in the hot tub cabin on our recent trip to SD. I wish we had spent a few more days in the area and stayed at Rock Creek Ledge longer. Our cabin was clean, modern and had great air conditioning. There was a beautiful fireplace for cooler weather. The best part was the hot tub... More

Extraordinarily clean, super helpful and friendly staff, and centrally located. Our cozy room was well thought out for the traveler. The room was equipped with a kitchenette, wide array of toiletries, and had an elegant log cabin decor without being kitsch. We enjoyed sitting outside under the front porch staying dry from the rain. We would definitely recommend and look... More

We were tired of overpriced motels. We decided to try a cabin b a creek. We found it here at Rock Crest Lodge. The owner provided us with a clean room and really good information about sites that were worth seeing. It is enjoyable to deal with nice people.
