“Good deal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

This hotel was a good deal considering many of the surrounding hotels are pricy, but still cost over $100. Pets are welcome, they charged us $10 for our two small dogs. The room was decently clean, kind of old, the toilet ran so we had a constant running water sound, and our bed wasn't very comfortable--but still a pretty average experience. The people at the front desk were very nice.

Over July 4th week end- checked in around 8 PM- only had 4 rooms left and they were all smoking which we did not want- Clerk pointed out that the doesn't mean they all smelled like smoke, She left the desk and took us up to the rooms, opened the doors of 2 rooms, 1st one had a slight smoke odor but would have taken it had it been the only one available but she said lets check another room and when she opened that door their was absolutely no smoke odor. I call that going way above the call of duty!

Great location for mount Rushmore. The room was great my only complaints would be the price was really high and it wasn't a high price hotel. I figure it is high because of the location. The breakfast was horrid it was cold cereal and FROZEN donuts.

I spent three nights at the Super 8 in Hill City, SD in June 2012. I chose it based on price, as I am a budget traveler.

The positive:

Great location on Main Street, convenient to restaurants and shops.

The negative:

The hotel is in desperate need of an interior makeover. They repainted the exterior, when money should have been spent inside with new mattresses, linens and tubs/showers.

Mattress was very old and saggy. It was very low to the ground. Box springs were stained. I imagine the top mattress was no better, but I was afraid to look. The foundation of the hotel business is sleeping, yet this hotel ignores the most important component – decent mattresses. I had the same experience last year at the Super 8 in Santa Fe, NM, so shame on me for picking it, but this place was all that I could afford. I tried to Priceline a better hotel, but never achieved a successful bid.

Pillow stuffing was spilling out.

Bedspread was threadbare and old. Blanket appeared to have cigarette burns.

Shower head was very low. I’m 5’6” and it was too short for me.

Hotel smells of cigarette smoke and chlorine from the indoor pool.

Toilet was running when I first entered the room. To their credit, it was fixed immediatly, but the housekeeper should have caught that when making up the room and gotten it fixed.

Room Tip: If you stay here, ask for the second floor or higher, otherwise you'll have headlights beaming i...

This was a great place to stay to visit Mount Rushmore (9 miles away), friendly helpful staff (Deb), room was clean and comfortable.
Hill City itself is a cool town to visit - wish we had more time to stay -will definitely go back

Hotel was ok - room was clean and was pet friendly with nice area outdoors. Trouble with toilet and billing was a nightmare - got over charged for the room and was told that funds would not be available for up to a week? ended up having my bank at home straighten it out after gettting chastized by the clerk at the counter! What? Check your bill ask questions once it's done nightmare to straigten out! Probably will not stay there again since there are many other options in town and in Custer just down the road.

Stayed in October 2011.
Toilet constantly refilling, I tried to fix being as it was real late when I arrived and couldnt be bothered to move rooms. Turned off the water too it in the end.

Room bathroom etc is clean and comfortable.

HOWEVER, woke up in the morning, and started to pull back curtain. Saw that some wasps/yellowjackets (but bigger than normal wasps/yellowjackets) was in between the glass and the wire screen. Then looked to the left, and they were actually inside the room with me.
Im real afraid of wasps any anything like that so quickly got out of there. Whilst packing my stuff, realised that the night before where I had put my laptop, I had stepped on one barefoot and squashed it.

Told the girl on reception about this and she thought it was quite funny. I dont think so.

Breakfast however is good and free! There is stores around to pick up stuff - get some Apples for the Begging Burro's in Custer State Park.
There is also a gas station right next door to the hotel which was very convenient.

Would stay again, but would need reassurance of no wasps! :)
