Your answer might be determined by which one has a vacancy. Things book up fast for the 4th of July so I would make a decision quickly.
One of best restaurants in the hills is the Alpine Inn in Hill City, if you like a great filet mignon at an extremely reasonable price. Just be aware that they have some quirky rules, like cash only, no reservations, limited dinner menu, and closed on Sundays.
Custer has the best burgers (Burger and Bun) I have ever tasted while the the Alpine Inn in Hill City has a very excellent,reasonable priced filet dinner, with outstanding deserts. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Hill City a few times and breakfast was very good.Quality Inn in Hill City another great hotel.
Been here a lot of times and always stayed in Hill City. You are pushing the envelop big time my not securing a room by now. Gut feeling you won't get your choice of hotels especially for the 4'th. Either location would be great..night time driving in the Black Hills, your eyes glued to the road lots of wild life wondering about.
There's a brand new Comfort Inn in Hill City that opened in the past few months. You might check that out if you decide on Hill City. Hill City would be my choice as well, as it's just a little more centrally located in my eyes.
You also have Prairie Berry Winery if you enjoy wine tasting. That is also in Hill City.
