Clean & good location

This was our third year staying here. We like how clean the rooms are & the ease of coming & going from your room since you park in front of your door. The rooms are a little outdated, but very clean. We did notice a newly updated bathroom in our last room & the addition of a night light as well. Both big pluses. Under the bed isn't cleaned often & the mattress is super hard, but other than that we are big fans. Very close to all of the restaurants & shops in town. Very nice owner.

Clean and comfortable hotel

Pros: This hotel was a great value - a comfortable room with amenities. Also a good location in town - close to restaurants.
Cons: With doors opening to the outside, weather sealing is always an issue. Had some rain leak in under the door, but not a big deal.
Location: Custer is in the Black Hills - explore Mt. Rushmore, the many caves, and Custer State Park with the Needles (very cool).
Like most hotels in the area, this one is somewhat older and dated. But with that in mind, it was clean and provided a comfortable stay. It had a good-size fridge and microwave, and A/C unit - all of which worked (which is rare for many hotels anymore). The plumbing worked well too, with plenty of hot water. Beds were comfy, and the rooms actually had some open space to move around. Though the rooms open to the outside and we were near the main highway, it was surprisingly quiet - save for the occasional 'studly' bikers with loud pipes (on their way to Sturgis). The staff were very pleasant and helpful. A plus - you get a designated parking space!
