Having just completed a 10 day trip through WY, CO &SD, staying in 8 hotels including Hilton, Hyatt, Holiday Inn and independent, this hotel was one of the best. In fact, considering the rate, it probably was #1. Thanks to TripAdvisor, I booked here even though I generally don't book HIE unless I know the hotel. The reviews are accurate....

Everything was good. The excellent location as you came into Custer. The welcome and clean and comfortable accommodation. And finally the excellent free breakfast. One of the best we enjoyed on our 3 weeks holiday in the States. Its a shame and a little surprising that all the Holiday Inns don't offer free breakfasts just like in Custer. Highly recommended.

The hotel was very nice & clean. All of the hotel staff was very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was good .What made this hotel so nice was it was in a quite (sort of) area so we could open the window for the fresh air... We were visiting the Mount Rushmore

This Holiday Inn was awesome. Room was very clean and quiet on the back side of the hotel. Every employee we met was friendly, courteous and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good. The breakfast area had the feel of a lodge and looked out at the mountain. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Holiday Inn Express is a great hotel for all the attractions in the Black Hills area. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. The breakfast buffet included everything you could need for a quick breakfast and seeing as there are not many restaurants in the town it was great to have it. The pool and hot tub were great.

My room 336 was very clean, staff was friendly, Wi-Fi had a password protection which was all good. The only issue I had was the TV did not have a sleep button on it. Otherwise I would definitely stay here again.

Really nice Holiday Inn Express! Breakfast is quite good (and included in price). We stayed three nights and were very happy with our room. Appears to be fairly new. Views out the back windows and breakfast area are so appealing.

A short walk to shops and restaurants. Purple Pie was wonderful for dessert. The people at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Close to Custer State Park as well as Mt.Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We went to Custer State Park at dusk and were surrounded by buffalo on the street and on the hillside.

The hotel is very clean and with a nice view. We were real late on checking in but was warmly greeted. Our only complaint was the air conditioning. The fan was on , all the time, and caused Jan to not get a very good sleep. The breakfast was very good.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry about the A/C in the room, I'll make sure we take a look at that. A goodnight sleep is important & will make sure we look into that A/C unit. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Thank you so much for staying with us.
