Stayed for a marriage retreat held at the hotel. It was a great breakfast and the rooms were comfy. Nice pool area though I never got in. Exercise room was small (elliptical, treadmill and stationary bike) but in good shape. Good location in Hill City right off of HWY 16. If you stay make sure and get dinner at the...

This was our 4th night on our trip across country. We arrived in Hill City after visiting Mt. Rushmore and had time to go out to dinner. The suite was spacious, quiet, and clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was your typical hot continental and it did it's job. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd stay here again.

Our visit was very impromptu but ended up more than pleasant. The Hotel had only been open a few weeks for the season. So many others were not open yet. They have very nice large clean rooms, a super nice pool area and the breakfast was a huge surprise! Very good.

The hotel was what you would expect of a Best Western, but the staff was excellent. It was the off season so there were not a lot of guests, which made the stay even better. A very good coffee bar (Seattle's Best), and because of the limited number of guests, the staff waited on you at breakfast-so there was not...

Our room was clean and the staff was very helpful with extra towels, coffee, soap, etc. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was freshly made to order and the servers were very friendly. Good location centrally located between Custer State Park and Mount Rushmore.

Nice enough hotel. Staff can be a bit...odd. They lock the door from the hotel into the lobby after a certain time as an example. Breakfast is in the restaurant in the morning. Parking is out front. Some rooms are inside and some outside facing. They have the oddest gift shop area selling purses and designer clothes. Seemed a bit...

We really enjoyed our stay and were able to take some time to enjoy the amenities during the workshop including the exercise room (older equipment), pool and hot tub. The suits are spacious, clean and quiet. It is a lovely setting near Mount Rushmore.

The staff on duty have to work all positions: front desk, gift shop, dessert stand, and restaurant. The same guy who checked us in, served us dinner in the restaurant, and then later made our dessert at the dessert stand. The restaurant is very affordable and the food is quite tasty! In fact we ate here every night during our...

We had traveled over 2K miles to see Crazy Horse Memorial and were told to stay in Hill City instead of Sioux Falls and were so glad we did....It was mid Oct and we found many business closed for the winter, including the dining room at the motel but here was a historical restaurant and bar right next door within...

excellent location for seeing Mount Rushmore, Custer National park, Crazy Horse and the Black hills. We had the 2 room suite with a fireplace and the room was wonderful. Friendly staff. Free breakfast. The only issue with our stay was that everything in town closes at 8PM so if you need to eat after that you will not have hot...
