Barefoot Condo by EVRentals
Ranked #5 of 5 Specialty Lodging in Lead
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We stayed at the Barefoot in October 2012, it was quite a distance from most tourist attractionss such as Mount Rushmore, Rapid City etc. and the closest restaurants were in Deadwood. It snowed and caution is advised as the drive up the mountain to the resort is poorly lit and the signage of the resort is minimal. The service at the resort was poor and the rooms were not worth talking about.In general, the experience at the Barefoot Resort was disappointing, but the tourist attractions of S.Dakota was amazing!!

This would be an awesome resort if it wasn't in such disrepair. The front desk employees were friendly and helpful and the view was beyond amazing. However, the resort itself is another story. The mattresses were sagging and lumpy, the furniture was torn, and the walls were wet form moisture leaking in from a recent rain, and the wood decking was unsafe. If we go to back to South Dakota, we won't be staying at the Barefoot resort.

I booked through RCI and we were in a 2 bedroom downstairs plus loft bedroom (2 bath). Living room quarters were small for the 6 adults but we made due with sitting around the kitchen table. Kitchen had all that was needed to fix any type of meal. They had stocked wood for he fireplace which we really enjoyed. View from our balcony was very nice. Could see the see resort from balcony. Little walk away from the condo they had bench and table with awesome view. Deer were often seen outside in the morning. Washer/Dryer was across the street in the main building and no problem. Staff was friendly and helpful when ever needed info. Could the condo be updated? Yes, but we stayed out of the condo most of the day riding our motorcycles. We arrived on Saturday and Sturgis rally ended that Sunday. Lots of neat rides and wish we had longer to stay. Just not enough time to do all we wanted.

Although this is located up the hill away from town it did not take that long to get there. I recommend to arrive in the day time. Lots of curves but of course, you are in the mountain. The reservation directions were great.

Took day rides to Sturgis, Spearfish Lake(great restaurant there to enjoy), Hill City(neat wineries in area), Needles, Devils Tower, Badlands ,Crazy Horse, Custer Park, Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood, Wall (tourist town with neat shops but mostly commercial), Rapid City...so many unique places to ride and enjoy. Scenery is unbelievable. Take time to check out locations surrounding this resort....you cannot go wrong. Whether on a motorcycle or riding a car, I'm sure you will not be disappointed in this area. Don't expect five star but keep in mind you did not pay the price for one. Go and enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask about the location to laundry. We never used the pool or hot tub.

This is the second stay that my neighbor and I have had at the Barefoot Resort Condos in Lead, SD. Both stays were "pre-Sturgis rally" (the week immediately preceding the rally) and even then, if you are not bikers, understand that there will be a number of bikers staying at the resort and the neighboring locations. We do ride motorcycles and the location is outstanding, beautiful scenery and a good site for trips to Mt. Rushmore, Custer, Devil's Tower, Spearfish Canyon, as well as to Deadwood and Sturgis. There was some deterioration in the property between the visits (only a year apart). While the two-bedroom condo was relatively clean (we had the same condo both years), it was obvious that the carpet was in dire need of replacement. Some of the fixtures in the second bathroom were loose (towel racks) and there is no question that the gas grills while recently painted, were in need of being replaced. The concrete on the patio had significant grease stains due to grease/oil dripping from the gas grills. If there are some basic repairs made, this property would jump from an "average" rating to "excellent". Our visit was July 28 through August 3, 2012.

We reserved a 3 bedroom condo at Barefoot for Sept. 21, 2012. The condo was not cleaned properly from the last user. We found pink tissues in the trash cans. [We did NOT have pink tissues with us nor were there anything other than white tissues in the condo.] There were dead flies and dust on most of the surfaces. The condo smelled of stale smoke which is unacceptable for a non-smoking facility! We would have cleaned but the sweeper was not working and had 4 places in the electrical cord that were taped. It would have been unsafe to use it because the sparks flew when we plugged it in. The communal grills were on a wooden deck/walkway and are unsafe to use and illegal by South Dakota regulations. We had to call ahead since we were arriving after 5 pm and were informed that we needed to arrive before 10 pm. The towels were thin and very used although they were clean.

Great place- we stayed in a two bedroom unit over looking the mountain range. We could see for miles. The unit was fully equipped with everything you needed, even coffee for the morning. Very comfortable and clean. Convenience store in the lobby with anything you need.If you have kids and want to see some wild life, there are deer on the property. We were only 45 miles from Mt. Rushmore and Custer National Park. It was worth the ride to see the sites. Deadwood is only 15 miles away for good restaurants and some gaming fun.
Just a great a place for the summer and we will be back for the winter skiing.

Room Tip: Get a room with a mountain view.

The condition of the condo was really disappointing. Stained sheets, ripped couch and old decor. We will not return
