Stayed 4 nights in their Suite A room. It was very well kept and clean, and large enough for my big family. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is restaurant style - you sit and order from a menu with limited options. The last morning was buffet style which was a nice change of pace. The breakfast...

This is an interesting place. The layout and services are a little different from other Best Westerns, but that's not a bad thing. For spending time in the Back Hills, this place makes a great jumping off point. It's located such that most of what you want to see is not too far away. The hotel is clean and well...

Best to order breakfast, professional and friendly staff, great location, clean rooms, pet friendly. I highly recommend this property. We are very picky when it comes to clean rooms and good locations. We didn't have the best view out our window however this hotel met all our needs.

What a great location! The room was wonderful - roomy and comfortable. The hot breakfast (free) was pretty good - the lady working in the restaurant, Stephanie, was really great! The night we stayed, there was a fire on a nearby hill (Storm Hill) and we could see it from our room window. The only downside would be that the...

After spending a lot of time vacationing in the area, had always wanted to stay here. Definitely not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. They greeted my dog with warmth and made her feel as much at home as I was. Accommodations were clean and quiet, which meant oversleeping one morning. Best part was breakfast, they cook...

It was a great experience and hope to have our guest stay there in June 24, 2017 for our daughter's wedding..I would stay again when I come back to finalize any plans for the wedding too. The pool was great, the food was awesome and the customer service was excellent

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying the Black Hills area. The town of Hill City is delightful and not quite as "touristy" as some of the other small towns. The staff at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. We had an excellent room which was clean and roomy. I will definitely stay here again if in...

Great place to stay, nice room, great staff, great cost. We couldn't get a BW in Hot Springs and stayed here. So glad we did. Stephanie was great with breakfast and giving us insight where to look for property. Ryan handled a problem that we had one night. Everything was great. Going back again in July.

Went to Mount Rushmore and arrived late in the evening. Most of the motels in the area were closed for the season but was happy to find that this hotel was open. Booked my stay online and was very happy with it. The hotel was very clean and up to date. Staff was very friendly. Was very surprised to find...

The hotel was very nice, and clean. Well maintained and cared for. I was concerned about the noise level we would have as we were next door to the pool, but we had no issues. Very impressed at that. This was our first visit to South Dakota and we were not aware how much of it would be closed, even...
