My wife and I spent two nights here while we went to Mt. Rush-more and the Crazy Horse monument. It is a short drive to both from Hill City. The Golden Spike is a clean, friendly, and nice looking place to stay. They also have a good hot breakfast.

All the comforts of home....very good bed, a selection of pillows, and really quiet. The front desk person, Jason, was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was a dull hot buffet with lots...

We spent two night at the Golden Spike Inn & Suites and found it to be extremely comfortable. Great beds and and love the 4 pillows on each bed. The staff was very helpful, the amenities are excellent. This is the perfect location when visiting Custer State Park and the Black Hills area. Would highly recommend this Inn.

Spent two nights at the Golden Spike to be close to the Buffalo Roundup at Custer State Park. There was a complimentary breakfast with good selections and it was served early to help the tourists get to the Roundup on time. I used the laundry -- $3.50 to wash and dry plus $1.00 per box of detergent. I could have...

Good point...near Mt. Rushmore. And then it went downhill...We entered the lobby looking at the top of the clerk's head. He had his head down on the desk. The front area looks like a Vegas wanna be gift shop...to the left as you walk in. To the right is the restaurant. Off to our room---a room that was very stinky...

We do apologize if you had an unpleasant experience with our restaurant. The kitchen manager should have been notified of the issues immediately. I will be speaking to the housekeeping staff as well as the restaurant staff so this does not happen again. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Have a wonderful day

As a base to explore the Black Hills area this hotel is a good choice. The room was big and clean, but the bathroom (with shower) was on the small side. As often at Best Western hotels of this category the lighting in the rooms is rather cheerless. This being a two-level building, make sure to ask for a first-floor...
