My sister and I visited the Black Hills and brought her two dogs along. The hotel was wonderful, from the architecture and the self-service pancake-making machine to the friendly service and the cute company car that was used to shuttle guests into town. The room was clean and

Any rooms with patio's or balcony's
Most rooms have two chairs and a table directly outside the room. Very comfy. Bring candles, better yet those big "Off" candles. To keep insects away, it brings more to the experience. No insects while I was there, just being pro active. I still think of this place a lot. You will hopefully like it. A great place to stay, more so with the outdoor and indoor pools, large.

"There are rooms with outdoor patios. Those a very nice. You might enjoy a room that faces the rear of the property."
"A room in the back ( i think the north side) as it is quiet and close to where you can walk your dogs."
"All the rooms were the same"
"Would not want to walk down to Custer business area. You would not be mugged but there is a busy road w/o sidewalks."
"I wanted to rate service, rooms and location above but computer wouldn't let me. All were excellent."
