Reasonably priced, clean, basic necessities. Walked my dogs around the campground that night and the next morning. Everyone was friendly. No Tv. (not a big deal but I always sleep with one on; it was VERY quiet). I'm sure the view was very nice but I arrived just after dark and got up early to travel into the park for...

Stayed here as very close to TheBadlands SD. It was tired and well worn but clean and adequate for our needs. It does have a large above ground pool which was also very clean and refreshing after temperatures had reached 94 f. Do not eat at the Bar and Grill in Interior. Cook your own or try to get to...

We stayed in a hotel room which was clean and reasonably priced. Breakfast was available for purchase the next morning, pretty decent, although eggs weren't on the menu. The location is perfect, really just outside Badlands National Park, which is definitely worth seeing. The couple that run this hotel are very nice people, and it's convenient that there is a...

On our way to the Black Hills we took a chance on this small motel. I'm so glad we did! The price was right...58.00, it was VERY clean, and the most comfortable king bed I've slept on in a hotel!! Our room had a king bed and two bunk beds. The bed had a pretty quilt on it similar to...

We stayed here for two nights, and the convenience of being so close to the Visitor's Center made it worth it! We were able to bike in to the park and hike from the campground. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the bathrooms and laundry were quite dated. and not as clean as we would...

We stayed for the pool, but it was just an above ground pool they threw a deck around back in 1980. It was fine though. It was right by the National park campground and seemed equivalent, although I'm not sure if the NP one has electric. Staff was very nice. Store was cute too. Gorgeous view. All in all fine...

I was at a family reunion in Kansas & had originally planned an extended trip to another part of the USA, but the extended part of my trip didn't quite pan out. It just so happened to be my brother's birthday weekend as well & so he said "why don't you come with us to the Badlands & to go...

We were traveling through during the Thursday before the Sturgis SD Harley Davidson Ralley started and finding a room was difficult at best. Finally I looked outside the Black Hills and Wall, SD, and found this little gem of a place. We arrived at 8PM, checked in then went to find someplace to eat (there are two bars/grills in Interior.)...

No frills here, but was a nice, quiet place to camp close to the Badlands National Park. Free wifi, but you must have a campsite close to the main building to get service. I'll admit I had my doubts when I pulled up, but overall it was nice. I would camp here again.

Outdated but clean hotel rooms with no TV, phone and internet that doesn't work. The view is amazing though. There is a simple above ground pool if one wants to swim. The owners are very nice and extremely trusting. They have a little cafe on-site with a few simple breakfast choices at a very reasonable price. The food was delicious...
