This motel is a bit on the tired side... but the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, there is air conditioning (so important in July!), and the free continental breakfast was excellent.

We just spent 2 nights here and would willingly stay here again. It's just outside the Badlands National Park and is a perfect headquarters for exploring the park and nearby attractions.

The location is unbeatable - and that's really the best that can be said for this place. If not for the location and lack of competition, this place would be rated lower. On the plus side, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean if highly dated. What it boils down to is this - if you want a luxury experience - you are in the wrong place. If you want to be in your bed within 2 minutes of leaving a night ranger program in Badlands National Park - this is your place. I'd stay here again - because of, you guessed it, the location.

I had low expectations for this place given some of the reviews. But on a 105 degree day, the Badlands Inn was a perfect oasis. it's not the Ritz and the building is a bit beat, but the rooms were clean and the staff was very pleasant.

So glad we decided to stay here during our Yellowstone/Badlands vacation. The room was big, clean and we had a wonderful view of the Badlands. My only concern was the flight of stairs to get to our room on the 2nd floor. If you are handicapped or have trouble with steps, be sure to ask for a ground floor room when booking.

We were a little hesitant after reading the older reviews, but the more recent ones gave us hope so we decided to give it a chance. After all it was only one night.
What a pleasant surprise. Came up the road from Interior and the place looked so isolated amid the foreboding landscape of the Badlands NP less than a mile away.
The desk clerk was wonderful. The reception lobby/breakfast room was simple but clean and welcoming. We got our free bag of ice - the first one's on them!
Our room was upstairs with a glorious view of the Badlands. We traveled with our nearly 8 year-old daughter. She loved watching the cattle mere yards from the Inn property. Their moos and the songs of flycatchers & other birds were the only sounds except for the prairie winds. Ahh!
Our room was clean, nicely appointed. We all had good sleep even with rain
overnight. Breakfast was simple but delicious. When we return we will stay there again!
