Overall a great place to stay in Custer. Very happy with the rooms, we had a basic one room cabin with microwave and mini fridge and my parents got one with a loft and kitchen. Loft steps were pretty steep and not recommended for the elderly or if a pet was staying in the room, but otherwise just take your...

We stayed at the Rock Crest Lodge on our way to Jackson Hole and thoroughly enjoyed the town of Custer as well as the pine lodge in which we stayed. The lodge was very clean, perched on a ridge which gave us great views, and a very friendly receptionist. The breakfast in the morning was an expanded continental breakfast and...

We stayed one night on our way to Mt. Rushmore. We arrived late and the keys were left out for us. The room was immaculate. So very clean and comfortable beds. A great value. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Nice cabins HORRIBLE beds! Although the cabins are pet friendly, quant and rustic the beds left us taking Tylenol and finding a chiropractor. Many steps to get to the cabin which was not described when placing the reservation. Even after explaining my husband was in an orthopedic boot due to an injury. Not returning.

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....

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...

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...

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!
