Overall - we were satisfyed with the lodge. There was noone at the front desk after 10pm. It is a KOA campground also, lots of amenities. It was too cold to swim, but the pools looked great.
It was very clean and the decor was woodsy. We had one of the rooms with a balcony - great view, we could see deer munching from our room.
I notified the front desk moments after being in our room that the fire alarm was hanging from the ceiling. She assured me that they would fix it the next day. It never was fixed.
The beds needed replacing badly. I'm glad there were only 3 of us, because one bed sunk so badly to the middle I could not sleep in the bed with my daughter. She had to sleep alone. The other was one it's way to join it's mate.
We spent alot of time out and about, and the lodge is very close to sights. Hill City and Keystone were very close and Rapid City about 25 mintues away.
Continential Breakfast was adequate. Your Typical muffins, pastries, cereals. It was nice to have.
