This was by far the best place to stay if you are visiting the Black Hills, it was like staying at a friends home, everything from the room to the lobby was nice cozy at home feeling. The rooms were extremely clean, plenty of hot water and water pressure was amazing. The rooms were nice and quiet, and the beds... More

This place would not be five star on some scales. On ours, however, it rates five plus. We wanted a place near Mt Rushmore so location is perfect. Made it very easy to go during the day and then return at night for the lighting ceremony. The rooms are adequate in size. Ours had two very comfortable beds. A good... More

This is a family own property. Water pressure was great and plenty of hot water. It took us back to the 70's. Small hotel with only street parking. Was looking forward to the breakfast as it was touted as so good...not so much. Not sure what the eggs were but weren't real eggs. Was hoping for grandma's cinnamon rolls, but... More

From the comfortable bed, off the main street location, and real breakfast, the Battle Creek Lodge was my favorite. Not too much, Not too little with a location tucked into the mountain on Hwy 40.Tammy was very caring, fun to talk with, gave very good directions and her idea for the loop car drive in Custer State Park was great....

We spent 5 days in Keystone, SD viewing the fabulous sites. Battle Creek Lodge is centrally located to the sites and Keystone. The Lodge was fabulous. Extremely clean rooms and well equipped. Breakfast is included in the room price and each day there was something different and really good. The ladies at the Lodge made our stay even better. They... More

The room was awesome. Lots of little details that the owner has thought about. Even though I did not have a lot of direct contact with owner, saw her interaction with others and she was GREAT! Friendly, helpful. . .I just wish we had been able to stay longer.
