Check in was quick, easy, and as reserved. They even gave me a map circled with things to do in the area. The room was clean. The Bathroom was very clean. The beds were comfortable. We would stay here again if in the area.

We checked into two 2-bed queen rooms for two nights in June. The owners of the Chief Motel are a lovely and friendly couple.
The rooms were sufficiently large for our group. We appreciated the clean rooms and bathrooms and the microwave and refrigerator in each room.
The pool was nice and inside which was a bonus since it was a nice 69 degrees outside.
The location in Custer puts you right in the middle of lots of fine things to do. Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Wind Cave, Hot Springs and the Mammoth site.
The price is reasonable, so give the Chief Motel a try.

Room Tip: Custer isn't a super big place so all the rooms should be relatively unaffected by road noise. Didn't hear our neighbors either.

I stayed here on a three-day weekend in the Black Hills. The room was spotless and large. I liked that the sink was in the room, rather than in the small room with the toilet and shower. There was plenty of storage on the corner shelves and shelf above the sink. The bed was comfortable. We were glad to have a small refrigerator to keep drinks cold and a small microwave to warm up leftovers. The older couple who run the hotel do an excellent job. They were in the process of planting flowers. You can tell they take pride in their property.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September. Nancy the lady on reception was so friendly and very knowledgeable about the area.
The room was a good size, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. We could park right outside our room and didn't have any problem with noise outside.
Enjoyed the hot tub after each day sightseeing.
The chief is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in the town centre.
Would definitely stay at the The Chief if visiting the area in the future.

Room was spotless and spacious, manager very friendly and helpful and the map/insights he provided on the Blackhills proved invaluable - the route he recommended to drive towards Deadwood was phenomenal. Check in was smooth, check-out was as easy as dropping a key.

The beds were comfortable, bathroom well stocked, and everything worked as planned. Excellent value too for a summer weekend around Sturgis.
