“Awesome family friendly experience!!”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

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.

We booked this room knowing that it would be different from the average Best Western. The staff was friendly and accommodating, but the location was disappointingly close to the noisy highway. Although it claimed to be newly renovated, the only thing that looked refurbished was the lobby. The rooms were small and worn, but clean. The shower was tiny, and the furnishings were cheap and sparse.
Our first night we stayed we had a terrible, sewage-type smell in our room. When my husband went to speak with the owner about it, he said they'd had "a few complaints about that". The hotel quickly changed us to another room and it was better. Overall we managed and liked the friendly staff but it was not enough to make up for the poor quality of the rooms and location.

Our room had two double beds and 19" tv (5 channels), a microwave (no fridge) and a bath with very small shower. It was clean and comfortable but taking a shower was a little uncomfortable. They have internet only in the office area. Not in the rooms. The balcony view was beautiful and there were chairs and bbq grills for your use. You are a few miles from a town or attraction but it is a nice location. The swimming pool was quite small.

We were up above in the cabins. We had 4 families in three of the cabins. We had a very enjoyable time. We were there in the month of June, so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors. The location was gorgeous and plenty of room for our families to be outside when we were around. There is so much to check out in the area. As I look back at the pictures that we took it just reminds me what a great place for us to all gather. The ages ranged from 55 - 12, we were able to keep us all entertained. The couple that manages the lodge were very gracious and accomadating. Thanks for a fun family gathering.

I stayed @ the Mountain View Lodge for an extended weekend and couldn't be more pleased with my experience. The rooms were very clean and the caretakers were the sweetest couple! The lodge also was conveniently located right outside Hill City.
