This small, family-owned hotel is open seasonally and offers a basic, budget stay less than a 10-minute drive from Mount Rushmore. Its 32 rooms have generic decor, but are clean and homey, equipped with flat-screen TVs, microwaves, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi; some have private balconies. Amenities include a heated indoor pool and an on-site pizza restaurant, as well as free continental breakfast. Overall, it's an unfussy option that's a bit dated, but a good value. Travelers might want to compare rates with the nearby Mt. Rushmore's White House Resort.
The inn has a homey atmosphere with pleasant, if dated, decor that includes lots of wood furnishings; picture Oriental rugs paired with leather armchairs in the lobby, and formica-topped tables in the breakfast area. The indoor pool could use some new tiles, but it’s cheerful and surrounded by white plastic tables with rainbow umbrellas. The pizza restaurant is also a little dated, with decor that includes antlers, a moose head, and a faux arbor, but it’s a pleasant, family-style throwback. Overall, this is a clean and well-kept property that attracts families and leisure travelers on a budget.
