5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed four nights in the 6 plex. We loved it here. It is centrally located for everything. The room was large, the beds were comfy, and everything was clean. A lot of the staff don't speak great English but are super friendly. If you need ice simply go to the office for a bag. I will stay here again... More

Loved the Powder Lodge for its unique set up of rooms and outdoor porch. Had cabin 41 which has 2 rooms and an adequate bathroom. Although close to the road the noise was non existent. Sitting on the porch at night staring at the gorgeous star filled South Dakota sky could not be beat! The restaurant is pretty good too.... More

We had Cabin #26 which is right at the front of the property by the restaurant and parking lot. I was worried that it would be noisy, but all was quiet and we slept well. Nice to walk out the door and be at the restaurant. We ate 2 dinners, and one breakfast there (used the voucher $85 for $100... More

We stayed for one night in Sept 2016. We choose one of the smaller queen rooms, which was a little tight,but as we only stayed one night, it worked for us. The room was rustic, very nice, and clean. If you plan to stay longer, go for a bigger cabin. We also had dinner in the restaurant, the the food... More

We booked one of their "quad" budget rooms which go for considerably less than their other accommodations. The room was small, but fine. No problem with the bed and the bathroom was decent sized. Microwave and refrigerator were handy. Friendly and helpful staff. As we were able to get a discount with one of the online travel agencies (cheaptickets often... More

The room was beautifully rustic and everything worked well. Our bed and pillows were harder than our preference, but that's hard to make everyone happy. My wife absolutely loved the bathtub - baths both nights. Wish there was a common area like a lobby to sit in away from the room - used to coffee ready in the lobby at... More

My husband and I went to the Powder House Restaurant last year and enjoyed the great food. We were given a gift certificate to go and got to use it this past week. The food was amazing. The sirloin steak was prepared perfectly and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The waiter (sorry, I can't remember his name) was funny, very... More

My wife and I go to the Hills at least once a year. This is amongst the best places to eat in the Hills. They do not serve lunch but their breakfasts and suppers are fantastic. We had the skillet for breakfast which was great. In past trips I have enjoyed their prime rib. We have never had a bad... More

Absolutely amazing accommodations in this homey comfortable log cabin. It's set back in the trees for privacy. Immaculately clean with mini fridge, fireplace, tub, shower, king bed and private hot tub on a large deck with porch swing. Perfect. Don't go anywhere else for dinner and be sure to reserve ahead as they were packed on the weekend!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in June while visiting Mount Rushmore and the area parks. The staff was helpful when we asked to add a 2nd night at the last minute, when our schedules freed us up to leave a day earlier, so we appreciated that! The on site restaurant was fantastic and there was easy... More
