“excellent for our purpose”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Not a 5 star hotel.... a rustic cabin on the edge of the woods on a road less travelled. The staff was friendly and great to deal with. Breakfast was not free, but frankly, I have never had a free breakfast this good. "The bacon guy" was friendly and really added to our time in the Black Hills with his recommendations on where to go. The location was great for what we wanted to do.

We went with cabin number 2. Two bedrooms (sort of a stretch - two rooms with queen beds and just enough room to walk around them). There was a sleeping loft, a small dining area, fridge and microwave. The fridge should have been cleaned more thoroughly between guests, but this didn't effect our stay. The bathroom was basic, but very functional. The key for us was quiet. This was no luxury place, but then again, we didn't have to listen people talking in the hallways either.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

We have stayed at Recreational springs in the past and the management was horrible. The current manager, Darcy, told me they are under new ownership and were working through problems created in the past. She, and her whole staff made our experience so great. We didn't even notice any problems. The rooms may need some touch ups here and there,but they were clean and well appointed. They even moved a mini fridge and microwave into our room because we were travelling with kids. We had a great buffet breakfast one morning, and they turned us on to some fun things for us to do during the day. There was a bonfire when we got back and Darcy even found us some marshmallows to roast. People in the Black Hills are so nice and we would definitely come back to Recreational Springs Resort. Way better than it used to be!!!
