The location is why Badlands Inn can be rated a 3 out of 5. It's located just outside Badlands Park...your location couldn't be better actually.
The room pros of the room is that it had a refrigerator. The cons were that the bed was very worn and because of that you could feel the springs through it, but the biggest thing is that there were dead flies all over the room I found at least 15 dead flies)! I understand that the area is filled with flies (it really was) and I understand that rooms are sometimes closed up for a period of time and that there may have been flies caught in there and died. But, couldn't someone have gone in the room to check it out and make sure everything was up to par before sending us into the dead bug room?
The location is well worth it, just be prepared that the room leaves a whole lot to be desired.
