We made the reservation in conjunction with an all-day bus tour of the Black Hills and really had no idea what the Big Sky Lodge would be like. We were completely satisfied with our two-night stay. The people were very friendly, it was quiet and comfortable, and they had a very nice complimentary breakfast. What made it extra special was...

Stayed here because of all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. The rooms were very clean. We asked for a room facing east so we could see the sunrise and Connie was very accomodating. They have a great deck with a jacuzzi and cookers. It looks over the city and you can see the Badlands. All the staff...

I was just passing through, not planning on stopping and had someone recommend Big Sky Lodge. I have a dog that always travels with me and they welcome pets. It was clean, nice, beautiful view and close to everything, but not in the city. They were nice enough to let me park my 28' trailer while I drove up to...

The room was a little small but it was very clean and comfortable. They have a very nice breakfast selection. Everyone was very friendly. It is very conveniently located for traveling to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Crazy Horse. They were very helpful when we asked them about directions to Yellowstone. The route they suggested was very scenic.

My mom is from the area and she told me about this Motel, so my daughter and I stayed there. We loved it! The view was amazing and the staff was very nice! A guy that worked there went out of his way to help us with something that would be unimportant to most and it was really appreciated! Also,...
