First of all, this is the only place to stay within Badlands National Park, although there are commercial properties in adjacent community. The location is absolutely superb, with incredible views of the Badlands Wall, walking distance of the amphitheater and visitor center, and a five-minute drive from the major trailhead.
The rooms ain't cheap,considering they are filthy, poorly maintained, and tiny. My shower didn't drain, dead insects decorated the rug and my door would not lock. The housekeeping staff came in and asked if I wanted the room vacuumed! I guess if you're not there, they just let the bugs accumulate. Two adults will have a hard time maneuvering in the space; I've had larger rooms in budget Manhattan hotels.
So, the only reason to shell out $90 for one of these dumps is the location--and let's be honest, that's a compelling reason. Just be warned.
