    Two adults, two kids, a "family" room, worked fine for us. Basic, no-frills accommodations at a value price versus the area. Nice people, clean rooms, a good base camp from which to explore the area. Enjoy!

    We went on the road past the crazy horse memorial and it took about 45 min. Make sure you return that way, we turned left from Rushmore and if took a bit longer to get back and a bit more navigation.
