    Me and my family only stayed for one night, it was very clean. The staff was very good and friendly. The cleanliness cannot be understated! After spending 5 days on the road and spending the night in hotels, this was by far the cleanest.

    We went on the road past the crazy horse memorial and it took about 45 min. Make sure you return that way, we turned left from Rushmore and if took a bit longer to get back and a bit more navigation.
