Best value for location

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Deb at the front desk went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We got good value for what we paid.

Not even for one night

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: The willingness to change rooms at our request.
Cons: Room insulation, noise barriers, customer service training for staff, breakfast quality
My husband and I were looking for a simple place to stay on our way through South Dakota. When we arrived at this Days Inn we were 'greeted' by the woman at the front desk who didn't say a word to us - just walked over to the computer and looked at us expectantly. We were given a room that was right by the front desk and we could hear conversations going on between everyone in the lobby. The room was incredibly small and was only wide enough for the bed and two end tables. There was a round table in the hallway right in front of the bathroom door. When we approached the same woman who checked us in about possibly changing rooms she was very accommodating and we were moved to the end of the hall. Throughout the night we could hear full conversations in the room next to us and every footstep that was taken upstairs. When the upstairs occupants left at 6:00am the next morning we heard every minute of that as well. There is breakfast provided but it included only bread, stale cereal, and frozen omelettes in an ice bath - we left at that point. We were looking for a simple, cheap stay for the night but I would not stay at this hotel again - far too noisy, cheaply done rooms, terrible breakfast. Not worth the price we paid at all.

This is just an average hotel.

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Location.
This is just an average, older motel. No frills. A sauna and nothing else. Convenient location for walking to the downtown area.

OK place for the price

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: This one was OK, but I had a bad experience with another. The need to be more consistant
Location: It's near Mt Rushmore, Custer state Park, Deadwood, Lead, Jewell Cave and Wind Cave - lots of places to visit and see
I was on a two week trip around the Dakotas. The hotel was good value for the price. This Days Inn was OK, but I went to another one that was awful. I probably would not stay in another Days Inn unless I knew more about that individual one.

Nice hotel, but no elevator.

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Evertthing but the elevator situation was excellent
Cons: Obvious.
Location: Good location, centrally located in Custer, all historic and interesting sites easily accessible.
My wife has trouble walking, especially up stairs. Lack of an elevator hurried our departure.

Great place to stay!

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: The cat was adorable. Sauna was an unexpected perk and the breakfast was a delight. Custer is a small town with wonderful character.
Location: There are many interesting places nearby: Custer State Park, Crazy Horse Monument, Mount Rushmore, and all of the other attractions of the Black Hills
Our visit was for the weekend, we made reservations a week in advance and got just the kind of room we wanted. On arrival we were greeted by a sweet, gray kitty named Shadow, who is the official Days Inn of Custer cat. The staff was friendly, helped us locate a remote hiking site, and also recommended great places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. After a long day of hiking, the sauna was a terrific way to soothe our tired muscles. The breakfast was top-notch (especially the egg and cheese omelets and the raisin toast!). Needless to say, we had a wonderful time with absolutely no worries about the accommodations.
