Just a one night stay here whilst travelling but our room here has everything we needed. Great to have a kitchenette with a sink, fridge and microwave. Bed was huge, we could both "starfish" and not touch. The comforter was a bit "out doorsy" for my taste but did the job. Continental breakfast was great, good bread/muffin/donut selection, along with cereal and oatmeal etc. Overall we had a pleasant stay.
We were there just before the fall season was wrapping up. Disappointed they had already closed hot tub. No reason this couldn't have remained opened for guests. Had wasps that kept coming in through the window frames. I had to put tissue in the window frames to block them out. Overall room was clean but basic. Ample parking and friendly staff.
Location, Location Location! As a traveler that likes to see everything possible, this is a perfect location to do just that. On a 28 day road trip with my daughter and my dog, Bella, we booked a cabin at about 6 weeks in advance. We booked a room with an outside hot tub...when they reached out to say the cabin wasn't available, we were a little disappointed...until we arrived to find that we had been upgraded to an incredible cabin. Although far larger than we needed, the fireplace, dining room and multiple bathrooms were quite nice. As was the staff. We spent 3 days and 2 nights. before continuing south. The day we arrived, we stopped in Sturgis, Deadwood and Mount Rushmore along the way from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Our second day, we decided to take the road less traveled to Wall thru Cave of the Winds National Park (the Cave was closed due to COVID 19...I think) thru the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation...a story for another day...had lunch and a huge donut at the Wall Drug Store and a nice time looking, touching and shopping at the world's largest drug store. We ventured into the Badlands on our way back to Rock Crest Lodge when it started to snow...and snow...and snow...evidently the 1st snow of the season. We made it back to Rock Crest Lodge safely, thanks to my Western New York upbringing...Lake Effect Snow... We enjoyed our evening in front of the fire. Woke up to a good amount of snow and someone from Rock Crest shoveling a path from the door to our truck and completely around it so we could easily pack up and head out. Heading out of town, we stopped to see Crazy Horse Monument, again (3rd time for us), Great stay, perfect location. We will definitely be back!…
Please see the prior review about the entrance to the cabin that these people stayed in. It is the same cabin we stayed in, cabin 216. The entryway is down and up Jagged Rock steps and is incredibly unsafe. I spoke to April and she basically said too bad. See attached picture.
We stayed at Rock Crest Lodge in one of the log cabins on our way to Mt Rushmore. The cabin was reasonably clean and well built but there are a few things that would make it better. Shampoo and cream rinse in the shower would be helpful. There was bar soap but no shampoo. After an 8 hour drive a comfortable couch or chair would be helpful. There were 3 wooden dining chairs but no comfortable chair. A coffee maker in the room would be helpful - there was none. At $265/ night I feel the rate was high for what was provided.
