Reviewed July 29, 2011

Recently spent three nights here during a a tour of the area. Rooms were clean and quiet. We had a double (2 queens) and though it was kinda tight we squeezed a pack and play in the room (provided by hotel). The bathroom was tiny and there was no tub. A small kitchenette area (no burners), table and microwave with dishes. It was remarkably quiet for a motel. There was a balcony area and two grills for people who want to cook. There is also a pool but it is quite small. A continental breakfast was also provided. Staff was friendly.

Mountain View Lodge is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Black Hills! The service was fantastic! They really anticipated our needs and made us feel welcome. The rooms were great and very clean!! I am so happy we stayed there! I am recommending it to all of my family and friends.

The lodge also has rooms but we stayed in 1 of the cabins perched on pine growth hill-side overlooking lodge and highway. We stayed in cabin 8 which has kitchenette - living room area with TV, small bed-only loft, small shower-only bathroom, and 1 bedroom. I enjoyed drinking coffee on deck and looking down from the hill. Even though it was August there were no bugs and the air was fall-quality fresh. It got cool at night and we enjoyed camp-fires on the hill-side just below the cabin. We noticed some highway traffic noises and weird lumber-mill noises at night but it was OK. A friendly retired man and wife do most of the day to day chores and I think they live at lodge. I met the young owner and he was earnest salt of the earth type of guy.

My family stayed at the Mountain View lodge in August and had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and comfortable with nice furnishings. The deck was perfect for gathering!! It has a great family atmosphere where you feel like you're part of a big family! Grilling in the evening on the deck and mingling with guests was great! We watched the kids play in the pool and the owners even brought down candy and drinks so we didn't have to leave the pool! Just awesome! There is an icecream shop across the street and mini-golf so evenings became a ritual of ice cream on the deck and watching the sun set behind the mountains! We were so happy with our visit we're planning a trip back next summer! Thanks for such a wonderful memory and will send all my friends and family to the Mountain View!!!

we got one cabin, that was actually an upstairs, and a separate entrance downstairs., so two bedrooms, two b athrooms. The owner is very personable, and nice continental breakfast in the AM's...no cable TV, only five or six channels, partial kitchen that was adequate, and if you want fresh towels, need to take dirty ones to the office. Rates were good, abut I'd like a little more in the amenity area. little firepits in front of cabins

Launched from this central location to Mt Rushmore, golf, Spearfish canyon, Custer Park, national park caves, and the peaceful back county around Deerfield. Nightlife close-by in downtown; went on the 1880's Train with grandkids--boo-yah! Didn't have time to fly-fish the fast water streams, or lakes - takes at least a week to sample it all; another week to do the full tourista scene. Quiet rooms, and attentive staff made my stay a great memory worth repeating.
