It was good for value. The property is right beside the highway but we were tired we didn´t notice if there was any noise at all from the traffic. Microwave oven and fridge in the room. Staff was nice. Wonderful place. Would´ve loved to stay another night to explore the area as well. Unfortunately, we were just passing through.

This is a very sweet mountain motel nestled in the Black Hills near Mt. Rushmore. It's just past Hill City, but it's not that far. The owners are great and the rooms are exactly what you would expect from a mountain hide-away. The only draw back is the lack of wifi, which is not the motel's fault. There's no cable... More

Thank you for your review! Nestled in the Black Hills, we are definitely a "get away from it all" lodging option. We also wish the wifi signal was stronger, and are always researching ways to improve this for our guests. We are glad you were able to relax and enjoy your time! More

Cabin #17 was just fabulous! The inside and out were super clean and cozy. Great rustic relaxing feel, and the cabin came with everything you would ever need...air, heater, fridge, tv, microwave, deck table, grill, campfire spot, dishes, towels, coffee pot and supplies, etc, etc. Not to mention the location was super handy and the view was beautiful!

Stayed for 4 nights in the double room with kitchenette. Room was clean and cozy and had a nice rustic look with all pine ceiling and walls. The small kitchenette area was a nice addition. Small sink, counter and the usual coffee maker, microwave and bar fridge were very useful. Shower and toilet area were extremely small. Breakfast was adequate.... More

This hotel was very welcoming! It was easy to find not far from Mount Rushmore. The price was excellent for a family room that sleeps 6. There was a balcony deck with use of gas grills and utensils. The view was very nice also. Had small continental breakfast. Very friendly. Would recommend to anyone!

We loved this place. We had reservations for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4 nights. We had to change rooms twice but the caretakers moved everything while we were out sightseeing for the day and they were glad to do it. They were very nice and friendly and accommodating.

The cabin was very clean, well located, and was well furnished. We enjoyed spending time on the deck admiring the spectacular views. The location worked well for visiting all the attractions. We hope to return soon.

Here is the good: clean hotel, location central to many of the area locations, reasonably priced. The not so good: the hotel is right off the main highway, so traffic noise. The room definitely didn't look like the website (no charming wood paneling on the walls). No WiFi in Room 2. Breakfast really sparse. Overall, OK stay.
