Limited seating for breakfast resulting in either a long wait for a table or leaving for a breakfast elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin3455 You don't want to miss this gem!
Our family was on vacation to the Mt. Rushmore area and found this property EXTREMELY NICE. This was a very clean property. Looked to be newly remodeled or newly built. Very comfortable beds, with clean rooms that were well equipped with nice new furniture, fridge and microwave. Indoor pool was great. The kids loved it. Hill City is a nice little town very close to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, and 1880's train was next door (You should do this if in town!).
Loved those famous Holiday Inn Cinnamon Rolls and FRESH hot breakfast. The staff here was top notch!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joan26 Disappointed
This Holiday Inn Express definitely "fell short" of others we have stayed out. First, we stayed there for two nights. On the first morning we left our room at about 9 a.m.. When we returned at 4 pm our room had no maintenance done. Bed was unmade and bathroom had not been serviced. I finally located a service person who came in and provided us with clean towels. Second,I looked forward to using their fitness facility. I cannot use treadmills so I was happy to see there was a recumbent bike. However, it was not working properly and could not be used. It appears the staff knew previously that there was problems with it and obviously made no attempt to have it serviced. We enjoy staying at Holiday Inn Expresses, but I cannot recommend this Hill City, SD one...should be better management.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by takeahike Best All Around Place to Stay on Vacation
We have been married 43 years and traveled from coast to coast. The Staff exceeded any we've met and the facilities rank the top of any we've stayed in. This hotel is close to everything we wanted to see or do. It was close enough to even drive to Devils Tower in Wyoming and come back here for the night.
The Staff helped us with ways to get around where we wanted to go, they recommended places we asked about and explained places not to miss while we were in their area.
We looked forward every morning to visiting with the Staff over breakfast and visiting with other families and where they were gong for their day.
This hotel and it's Staff simply made our vacation more fun.
We would like to thank them very much for what we thought was above and beyond.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faith007 Comfortable room with good amenities
We enjoyed our stay at the Hill City, SD Holiday Inn Express. The room was spacious and quite comfortable for two people. It was clean and the breakfast was good. The breakfast area was a bit tight for the number of rooms, and some guests ate their breakfast in the lobby. We would highly recommend this site for other visitors to Mount Rushmore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom441 EXCELLENT Service
We stayed 5 nights in a jacuzzi room. Very spacious and had microwave/fridge/sink, along with couch and chairs. Room was spotless and all facilities worked properly (plumbing, HVAC, etc.). Parking was adequate. I cannot say enough about the friendliness and competence of the staff. Everyone we dealt with was knowledgeable and eager to assist. Yes, the breakfast room is small, as is typical with most large chain hotels like this, but the food was excellent and the choices were varied...AND they never ran out of of the "popular" stuff. Bed was comfortable, but a little soft for me; Pillows were also too soft, but I asked for a couple of firm ones and they appeared the next time the room was cleaned -- no hassles and much much better service than you usually find. My only complaint was the price; it's a little high for this type of hotel, but it is in a great little town that's not too touristy, yet it is close enough to all of the local attractions. Hill City is definitely less busy than, say, Keystone, and, to me, that is a good thing.

We love the fact that this place is right in between Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse. You are never more than 15 minutes away from major sights including Harney Peak. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The water pressure in the shower is strong and hot. The breakfasts were always good. We recommend this place highly. All of the staff are friendly and helpful as well.

We have stayed at this hotel on three different occasions and it has always been a positive experience. Hill City is centrally located in the Black Hills and is a very nice city to spend some time. This hotel is located near many exceptional restaurants and attractions. The setting in this part of the Hills is second to none. This hotel will not disappoint you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farmer/Rancher Jack EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY INT THE MT. RUSHMORE AREA.
We have stayed in HIE hotels before but this one more than met our expectations. From the moment we entered the hotel to the moment we left, we were greeted with kindness and excitement, being new to the area. They even took care of making sure we got our IHG points (reservation name under my brother-in-law). We were given places to visit and eat. We tried the suggested place to eat, glad we did. It was wonderful and not too expensive and plenty of food.
the location was so convenient to all the places we wanted to visit. The total experience was wonderful. I would recommend this highly as a place to stay in the Mt. Rushmore area.

The fresh mountain air sure helps with the natural beauty that surrounds this hotel.
The breakfast offered a variety of food (new was doughnut holes) and different juices instead of just orange juice. Although the breakfast area was small and hard to go through line - it was still great.
Our room was great - the bed very comfortable.
The bathroom had the option of heat lamps by the shower but no control.
There was only 1 can light centered in the area coming in the door and it seemed a bit dark. There also should have been more light by the hot tub; but other than that - it was great.

Very clean, quiet and nice staff. Breakfast area in morning a little snug. Eggs need some work. But for the price of breakfast (free), I can't complain.

The Hotel location is excellent, very near from Hill City Downtown, and very near from Mount Rushmore, a beautiful landscape around the Hotel. We used the fitness room, and then we plunged into the indoor swimming pool, then we sat in the warm water of the jacuzzi.

The hotel staff was consistently at the top of their game in accommodating our needs. The complimentary a.m. breakfast was more than sufficient. In-room WIFI was a big help, as was the hotel's common use computer & printer. This hotel is a #1 consideration if you want to stay in the prime area for touring the Black Hills. Job well done!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brad49 Most uncomfortable bed
The bed was so soft that my back suffered. I asked for a quiet room when I reserved the room. The desk clerk said they never got that message and I was put next to an ice machine.
The room was clean, but supplies were missing. Toilet paper was very low and no Kleenex.
The reps at the front desk were not helpful and gave out wrong information.
Overall, not the best experience.

Planned to stay 2 nights but after arrival decided to stay the whole 6 nights of our vacation. Hotel is very centrally located to our day excusions. We found Brenda to be very pleasant and helpfull in planning of daily sightseeing trips. The only improvement I would suggest would be in the scrambled eggs.
