“Bill is a very gracious host”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We spent a couple of nights at this hotel during our visit to the Black Hills last week and enjoyed our stay very much. We were very happy with how quiet our room was, even though the hotel was full or almost full both nights. The location is right in the heart of the Black Hills and is very convenient to all the sights. Bill was able to provide information regarding the hotel's amenities as well as local restaurants and attractions. We highly recommend this place.

We stayed there for only one night to visit Mount Rushmore. The only complaint is that the front desk gave us the wrong information about the light show for Mount Rushmore. It was at 8pm not 9pm. Most likely a honest mistake but one would hope that hotel employees would have very good information for the area's number one attraction. The hotel is nothing special so don't expect to consider it as anything more than a good clean place to stay. The pool was clean and the hot tub was good. The room was clean but expect dated standard hotel chain furniture. They do give you a bottle of water and a small snack upon arrival so that is nice especially after a long drive.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel with my family while on vacation. This is a very nicely maintained property in a good location. I was surprised to find out that it was built in 2003, I expected it to be much newer based on the condition.

Our room was very clean and equipped with a microwave and refrigerator. Although the hotel seemed fairly full, we heard little if any outside noise while in the room. The public spaces and the pool area were kept very clean. Wi-Fi worked well, but requires a code from the front desk.

Breakfast was the normal HI Express hot and cold buffet, which I’ve always felt was better than most other chains. The breakfast attendant was very attentive and kept things well supplied. Coffee was also available throughout the day.

The hotel is located next to the 1880’s train depot and within an easy walk to the restaurants and shops in the Hill City business district. Bill, the front-desk clerk, recommended the Alpine Inn; we enjoyed it so much that we went there twice during our stay.

Very nice property in a great location. I would definitely stay there again.

Family stayed at Hill City HIE and enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable and convenient location for Black Hills trip. Great beds, clean and quiet. Good location to Hill City, either walking or quick drive.

We reserved the executive suite at this hotel during a family vacation in the Black Hills. There is a loft with a queen bed, and a separate bedroom with a king bed. The suite also includes a full kitchen with a counter bar for eating,a living room, a desk in a quiet corner, and a table for two and whirlpool tub in an alcove area. The room/bathroom and linens were very clean, spacious and comfortable. Our entire family loved this room, and we all wished that we could have extended our stay. The hotel is a block from Hill City’s main street, and right next to the 1800’s Train. The train travels right past the front of the hotel. Keep in mind that the first train-whistle blows pretty early in the morning, although that wasn’t a problem for us as we were early-risers during this visit. We would certainly choose this Holiday Inn again during future visits.

Clean, quiet & efficient. Perfect to drop in & leave quickly. Walking distance to the train & station and to the shops in the 'downtown' section of town. It was a little pricey, but we booked in the peak of tourist season and understand the rate. It's nice to book w/ a big chain; the quality is more consistent. The bed was great too.

Took a side trip on the way home from Chicago. flew in to Denver and drove up tp Mt Rushmore.
Awesome place those Black Hills. Loved it ! We didn't know what to expect and it ended up being great. We booked one night and tried to add a night but the were booked up. Friendly staff, clean rooms and walking distance to Train and stores. The indoor pool was getting so much attention it looked foamy. Stayed in Keystone the second night. Closer to Mt Rushmore but Hill City was better
