Happy staff, meh hotel

Staff was very pleasant, friendly and courteous. Our room was for the most part clean, fresh sheets, clean bed. However their was some areas that needed some attention. the AC unit had TONS of dust on the vents, so pretty much turning on the vents was an invitation to dust bunny town. Really obvious, so not sure how that was missed. Room was also filled with a number of spiders, including a very large (dime sized) on the first night of check-in. After our battle with the large mystery ended with a crushed tissue, we noticed a few more small beetle like bugs throughout the room. Now, to be fair, I'm not familiar with the area, and this could be a completely natural phenomena for this region, but every night we were killing bugs. Squished another spider on a wall day 2, couldn't get all the guts off, and staff didn't realize. I'm pretty sure their are still spider stains on the walls. :( Breakfast was poorly organized, long lines because of the layout, the entire breakfast was stuffed in 1 corner of the lobby. Overall a pretty average experience, not great, not terrible, place looked like a renovated motel. Was a good value and a good location, close to everything.

Nice place to stay

We enjoyed staying at this hotel because of the locality of everything. Staff were very friendly and helped you find where you were going. Putt Putt is right across the street and is $8.00 per game... fun place. Nice restaurant that's basically in the same parking lot called Dakota Cowboy. Had a cute gift shop as well, so no need to drive into town. Food was great. Pool was in good shape and quite large for a typical hotel pool. Warm water made it easier to play in. Hot tub bubbles did not work though. :( Noice was typical with hearing every footstep above you, but nothing worse than any other hotel. Breakfast in the morning was great with waffles and biscuits & gravy, etc!! Pleasant surprise. 20 minutes to Crazy Horse. 45 minutes to Mt. Rushmore. 20 minutes to Custer State Park.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Dakota Cowboy is an Inn, but also has a restaurant with a western feel. My boyfriend said the chicken was good. My step-son said the chicken fingers were great and the salad I had was wonderful!

our cross country trip

I was really surprise that this hotel actually served hot breakfast. The room was comfortable but it did not have a mini fridge or microwave in the room also don't relay on your GPS because it will tell you to turn right when its suppose to be a left turn at the light, coming from I-385.

What deal?

The deal I booked the room for was not promised, as I was charged more than the original deal that you guys got me. Secondly, visiting the web site to look at the pictures of what I was expecting to see wasn't there, especially the one which showed Mt. Rushmore would be in view from the hotel. That was a farce. Thirdly, the hot tub wasn't working for the 4 nights I stayed at the place. They said maintenance was working on it, but I never saw once anyone "working" to fix the problem while my family was there. A huge shame during tourist season. Although the staff was nice, it doesn't make up for the overall stay.

Great value

The hotel is in a great location - perfect for exploring the Black Hills area. The room was clean. The beds were new and comfortable. Breakfast was as good as free hotel breakfasts get.
