“Very Nice Place”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stayed at the Big Sky Lodge this past weekend for 3 nights. The location was fantastic very close to all the attractions and downtown. The room was very comfortable and they served up a good continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay again.

We got tired of spending $170+ a night just to stay in Keystone so we though we'd try Big Sky Lodge about a mile outside of Rapid City on Hwy 16. We were pleasently surprised at the view, the cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel overall. It's not super fancy but it's as nice as anything we've stayed at in Keystone. Rooms are quiet, beds are comfortable and the room was very clean. Accomodations are basic, Cable TV, Microwave and refridgerator but for a night or three it was perfect and it won't cost you an arm and a leg!

Room Tip: Rooms that face the east have the best hillside view of Rapid City.

Can't say enough good things about the Big Sky Lodge of Rapid City, SD. We found it a very well maintained property with a very helpful staff and easily accessable. The rates were very competitive for such accomodations.

I can see why this is top rated. The owners and staff are super nice and make you feel right at home. Room was spotless. I know there were people next to us but I never heard them. The view from the deck is awesome. Nice to sit out there and just relax with an adult beverage after a full day in the Black Hills

This place is awesome! From the view of the city (which you can see from the hot tub), to super-friendly staff, to nicely folded towels in the rooms, to organic choices for breakfast, the little touches make it feel like home. The beds were super comfy. There were plenty of pillows. It was very clean. If we're ever passing through Rapid City again we'll definitely be back. What a gem! Glad we found it!

GPS found our hotel on service road fine. Views of Rapid City. Had a very hot day and room was nice and cool. Clean presentable room and bed felt very much like our own bed at home - slept very well! Decent price and suited our needs. Breakfast included and decent. Very happy - would recommend and go back to. Free internet PC.

We stayed at the Big Sky Lodge for 3 nights in July. Everything was wonderful. The room was spotless. The employees were friendly and helpful. The owners provided excellent service. The rates were reasonable. The view of Rapid City was beautiful. We had no complaints. We selected the lodge based on trip advisor reviews, and they were absolutely correct!
