We stayed two nights here during the motorcycle rally. The hotel appeared new - we were surprised to learn it is ten years old. Our room was spacious and clean. The entire staff was super friendly and hospitable. We were able to walk to downtown Hill City for dinner. This is a picturesque little town and close to the Black...

Well after a great day out at Custer State Park and Crazy Horse we arrived, a great location within walking distance of the town centre. Rooms were standard HIE, modern and clean. However we had no hot water. Staff were quite dismissive when we enquired as to when we could expect normal service to resume. It has a pool, complementary...

I had read several good reviews, so was excited to stay there. A man was friendly when we arrived, however, when we entered the room, it smelled musty. Also, the hot tub was pretty small. Breakfast was not very good. The scrambled eggs tasted watered down. Wouldn't stay there again.

Most importantly for us, this is hotel was perfectly located for visiting the surrounding attractions, Custer State Park, Crazy Horse Memorial and Mount Rushmore. The pool is ideal for kids, ours are 7 & 9 yrs old and they loved it. The breakfast was better than expected, the place was spotless and the staff friendly (if you can get a...

We stayed 2 nights here in room #118 & #119. The rooms are big & comfy. Housekeeping service was awesome. Please tip them. It is perfectly located if you want to see Mt. Rushmore & visit custer state park & crazy horse. Also "1800 train" is just a stone throw away. Breakfast was great. Pool was of smaller size &...

If you are visiting Mt. Rushmore, stay in Hill City, not Keystone or Custer. And, in Hill City this Holiday Inn is perfectly located for a walk into "town". It has an indoor pool and free breakfast, wi fi and Internet in the lobby. And, the manager is friendly and wants to provide the best service possible. She immediately responded...

We choose the Holiday Inn Express because it was close to the Mickelson trail and it was. We were surprised then to have them suggest that we should store our bicycles in our room. We truly thought they might have a storage room because of their proximity to the trail. Rooms were large but we could hear noises from the...

Standard Holiday Inn Express. No real complaints other than the price, but it is a tourist area. Nice pool, breakfast was plentiful, staff was friendly, great location. We would definitely stay here again.

For a Holiday Inn Express I was a little disappointed. Check in was slow as six families showed up at one time. Appeared one of staff was being trained but got through it without issue. Our room needed a good carpet cleaning. Workout room wasn't much of a workout room and seemed like an after thought. After being in the...

This hotel is about a half hour from Mt. Rushmore and it was really, really nice. It's also about twenty minutes from Bear Country U.S.A., which is a fantastic drive-thru zoo! There is free hot breakfast in the morning and they had a great selection to choose from. The room was clean and spacious enough for my mom, two kids,...
