I really liked this motel. We thought about going ultra cheap and camping in cabins all six nights we visited the Black Hills/Mount Rushmore area but decided for the sanity of mom and dad to spend the first few nights in a motel before spending three nights camping. After reading the reviews here we chose the Chief Motel. The motel is nice and well taken care of. I would rate the size of the rooms as medium having stayed in larger and also much smaller rooms in my travels. The owner/manager was extremely nice and upgraded our room to a double suite because of an error in the reservation system through a travel agent. He had all this done before we even arrived! He also took a few minutes and really explained what some of the real gems are to of see in the Black Hills area (much of it free to do so no it wasn't like they are getting comped for this). The rooms were clean and the beds were surprisingly comfortable for a motel. Parking is assigned to the rooms right in front of them so easy parking. Everything went very well, no issues at all! This motel is located right on Custer's main artery and is very convenient to see Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore, Hill City, and Keystone. Really enjoyed staying here and would recommend. When we revisit the area we will be repeat customers!
