Very pleased with how clean the room was. The owner/operator made you feel very welcome and offered information about local attractions if needed. Enjoyed the cabin type set up of the motel. The location could not be more convenient. Behind the motel is a trailhead for the Michelson bike trail. There is a very nice park a few blocks down... More

After being turned away at two other "no vacancy" signs we found our favorite motel from our entire trip. We were 8 days on the road traveling by motorcycle having stayed at some nice places. Reservations at The Bavarian Inn fell through (my fault, not theirs) and I was prepared to settle for whatever we could find. To our surprise... More

This a 1950s/60s style roadside inn. The rooms are more like cottages; free-standing and most with private entrances from outside. It's cozy, comfortable, and above all clean. The amenities are not extravagant - coffee-maker, flat screen TV, fridge, but they all functioned well, unlike some other places I've stayed. The wi-fi connection is solid and fast. The staff is friendly... More

Small bed room and small bathroom - as often is the case for older motel. Decor felt a bit dated. But clean, decent rate, friendly managers, and convenient location for exploring the Black Hills area. Other guests seemed considerate - no loud noises during nights we stayed there, etc. Motel doesn't offer free breakfast but does offer very good deal... More

This is a very clean and quaint motel. We were lucky enough to happen on to this motel. The price was right. You can tell the owners take pride in their property. They were very nice. If ever back in this area will for sure stay here.

We stumbled upon this quaint, quiet,and comfortable motel nestled in the Black Hills near the Crazy Horse memorial and Custer State Park. It was very cozy and felt like home.

We did a girls trip. and stayed there for 4 days. It was perfect! Cute cozy rooms, a out door space to sit and have a glass of wine. The owners are very nice. It is close to the park and a lot of attractions. You can walk downtown. We meet some very nice people that made it even more... More
