“Great Family Friendly Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

We stayed in a large 2 bedroom cabin. Comforts of home but with rustic campground feel. Staff and service is exceptional. Kids wanted to be at resort more than out visiting attractions. Would recommend to a family looking for a comfortable place to stay without the confinement of hotel walls.

Loved this cabin on the lake. It was clean and roomy. Nothing fancy but for the price it was a deal. Great location close to downtown (10 min) and Mt. Rushmore (40 min).

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin 32 close to entrance and it was perfect.

My son got married a week ago in Rapid City, SD. All of my family stayed at Canyon Lake Resort. We had absolutely fantastic service from these people - way beyond expectation. The lodge is a really beautiful place - a great family gathering place. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for a great weekend!

My experience at Canyon Lake Resort was wonderful,I have never stayed at a place where the employees were so concerned about your well being,to see if everything was okay & if you were comfortable & if you slept good,& always asking if there is anything they could do to make a persons stay any better let them know.

Room Tip: It wouldn't matter what room was available it would be great. A person can watch the deer,ducks...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

Room/bathroom clean. Location was good for my day trips that took me in different directions each day. Downside: horrible bed. I only stay in motor courts and cabins on my annual cross country road trips and this is worst in years. Also, bedroom is tiny, which presents an issue if two adults are in room; you can't walk between wall and one side of bed. Also, the website is misleading in that it gives appearance of a secluded lake . Not the case; plenty of traffic one block away and the lake is with a city park. Disappointed it lacked the serenity I anticipated; all that aside, if you just need a place to sleep, it's a good deal---if you get a room with decent mattress.

I have stayed in both the motel rooms and the cabins. Clean, and very comfortable. The management and staff are very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I have stayed here several times over the last ten years. ALWAYS have a wonderful time. We have stayed in the motel section but mostly at the large cabin next to the laundry facility. It is like our little 'home away from home'--we just love it! They have always been VERY accommodating and kind to us. We look forward to taking a trip there soon.

Room Tip: Get the large cabin if you can--very homey!
