The chief motel won't disappoint you. Its location is awesome, all major restaurants are close by (3 cafes), Custer state park and Wind cave national park are like 15-20 mins drive. The property is well maintained by wonderful friendly staff. Rooms are clean with basic amenities like hot water, AC, heater, coffee machine, fridge, microwave, and TV (with nice channels). They also have a hot tub and swimming pool which we couldn't enjoy due to shortage of time. Very nice place for a decent stay.
