Had a great experience - my son left his childhood blanket and staff called me before we even knew it was gone and offered to ship it to us. Many places would have just discarded it but they didn't even ask me to pay the shipping! That type of service is, unfortunately, rare these days.

It's right on the main drag in Custer. Close to all the things you'd want to do in the area. Staff was friendly, room clean. Pool was too shallow for adult use.

The hotel was very comfortable, good location, nice continental breakfast, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

Staff was welcoming. Our room had wet carpet right outside of the bathroom. And i sign to shut the door to the bathroom when running the shower because the fire alarms would sound...? sounds like the fan didnt work anymore and they would rather spend the money on signs than fixing the exhaust. The rooms were extremely noisy. We had to go out of the hotel until late so we could get some peace and quiet once all the kids went to bed. [so we didnt have to hear them running around screaming and jumping above us]

Ever decide to go on a trip at the last minute and wonder what you will have to take for accomdations? My daugher of 16yrs and I did and headed for the Black Hills on the 4th of July week-end. [...],in the heart of Custer SD. It was perfect great room great service, including free breakfasts. We could walk to everyting going on in Custer and it was only 30 minuter drive to Mount Rushmore and Curster wildlife park. An Old fashion county fair was underway just acrose the street from our Hotel and we could walk to the fireworks later that night. Thank you Econo Lodge and staff, for making our stay so great. The only minor down side was that my daughter thought the Pool was to small. The rate of $115.00/ night was way cheaper than anything I could get at the last minute anywhere else. The People at the Lodge went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. A Big Thank you to all the Staff at Econo Lodge. We hope to do this again and Econo in custer SD. is the place we want to stay. Thank you.

We arrived late, but they kept the light on for us. But the parking lot was difficult to manuver in. The lot wrapped around the motel where it was dark. Visibility was poor since lighting was not very good.

I picked this place to stay overnight with the family while traveling from Crazy Horse to attractions west from it. Friendly staff. Clean room. Good value for the price, especially in that area.

Good beds. Good bathroom. Good TV Good Location

You'll enjoy your stay at Custer's Econolodge. The room is clean, staff is friendly, and the location cannot be beat! Morning breakfast serves cereal, carbs (english muffin, waffle, toast, etc), fruit and hard boiled eggs with choice of juice/tea/milk/coffee. 20 minutes from Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Jewel Cave or Mt. Rushmore/Keystone. Kids will love the little indoor pool; no hot tub for adults though. Many restaurants in downtown Custer are within 4 blocks. Custer Econolodge is one of the sponsors for the Crazy Horse evening laser show, a must-see!
