Ask for a room overlooking the mountain. We watched the deer all evening off our balcony! The decor of the room was typical Holiday Inn Express and the cleanliness was very much appreciated. Front desk personnel were so nice! But, the best had to be the breakfast served. It was the best of our trip! From the coffee to the...

We stayed here in late August 2016. We were upgraded to a rock view room, my mom also stayed at the hotel and had the road view room. The rooms were the same and both quiet, so probably not worth paying for the view. Good: Location - less than a mile from the heart of Custer, an adorable town with...

Wonderful! I love the new Eco option to decline maid service & gain 500 points, its a great way for us all to help our environment. Thanks so much for staying with us.

We enjoyed our 5 night stay here. The room was very good and we had a nice view out our window. They have a nice breakfast room with pretty good food (eggs and omelettes are frozen and microwaved like most Holiday Inn Express hotels, so that could be better). It is VERY busy, especially when there is a tour bus.

This was our third stay at this Holiday Inn Express. This hotel is very clean, has a great staff, and they serve up a wonderful breakfast. They have a nice fitness room and a good sized swimming pool and hot tub. Great location too as it serves as a great home base for day trips to Custer State Park, Mount...

We stayed for two nights in Custer and the hotel was perfect for us. The rooms were spotlessly clean and large, and we had a small kitchenette with microwave/fridge which is handy although we did not use. You are close to town and a number of restaurants nearby. Breakfast in the hotel lobby is free and fantastic. There is a...

This place was really nice. Breakfast was great. Close to different activities in the area. Staff was friendly, room was clean. It was a very quiet hotel which was really good when you are exhausted from sight seeing all day

We were in the Black Hills in September. Being on an extremely busy schedule to see everything we wanted to see in the area, this place was a great place to come back to at night and relax. Beautiful no relaxing hotel. We were with three. Other couples who all enjoyed staying here.

This is a nice place - outside of town, back from the road, and judging by the décor, relatively new. We had a large suite on the top floor, facing the wilderness area in the back - with a manmade waterfall. The only complaint about the room was the HVAC was so loud we couldn't sleep with it on. Turning...

First of of all thank you so much for staying. I am sorry about the HVAC unit, they do cycle thorugh that freeze protection mode & I'm asking our maintenance department if there is anything we can do to keep it from doing that. Im glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay & we hope to see you again...

This hotel is conveniently located to all restaurants in the town of Custer and is also very convenient to Custer State Park and other Black Hills attractions. I believe it's the newest hotel in town and is very nice both inside and out. The interior feels like a lodge with beautiful stonework/woodwork and large lobby area with huge fireplace. The...
