Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoravianMaiden Awesome Hotel
Not only was this hotel in the heart of where our family was visiting, it had wonderful staff, pillow top beds with down comforters. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast had lots of choices (hot and cold). Price not too bad for the time of year and askig prices around the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SDvisitors Old, needs up-dating, but good location for Black Hills.
Key cards would not work..front desk staff re-keyed cards..still did not work..staff used master key card so we could enter our room..staff said it would be 2-3 hours before door lock could be re-programmed..and if we left for dinner we would have to wait for front desk staff to let us enter our room..problem was immediately rectified by another staff member.
Housekeeping: dirty washcloth left in bathroom for a total of 2 days..towels, handtowels, washcloths, toiletries, bag for ice bucket, coffee/condiments/cups not replenished one day..beds not made one day.
Breakfast staff handled breads/pastries with bare hands at least once. Breakfast items were very low on occasion.
Carpet very dirty..sheer curtains full of dust/light fixtures very dusty.
Head housekeeper, Mary, was very nice and helpful, and immediately corrected housekeeping problems!

4 kids and dad on an adventure to Mt Rushmore, Devils Tower, Crazy Horse, Needles Highway, Custer, Deadwood, Sturgis and The Bad Lands.....HIE, Hill City was a delight to come rest our tired eyes from the plethora of driving and touring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SharonR2013 Very nice hotel
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel in the Black Hills. It is centrally located and we drove to sights nearby. Stayed so busy that never got in the pool. Breakfast room is a little crowded if you wait until 7:30 or later to go. Breakfast was basically the same every day. Lady that worked in the breakfast room engaged and advised guests on sights to see. Had trouble with people in room above us being noisy but called front desk and it was corrected immediately. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JameyW Good choice.
This hotel is one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Rooms were nicely appointed, beds comfortable, nice tv and furniture. There were some dusty areas in corners of carpet, and the bathroom could have been cleaned better. Overall we were happy. This hotel was expensive but it was 4th of July weekend and we are in a tourist town. Hill City is beautiful and the hotel is easily within walking distance to downtown shops, restaurants. Quick driving access to Custer, State Park, Crazy Horse, Mt Rushmore, everything we wanted to do!
Pool is nice, clean. Breakfast was fine although extremely crowded (we took our food to the room, there was no where to sit....again Holiday weekend). Wish they offered more healthy choices like more fresh fruit, lowfat yogurt, etc.
Staff was friendly on every encounter we had with anyone! Would definitely stay there again!
Great choice for families with kids!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerseyAunt Short stay
Perfect location for visiting Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. Hour to Badlands and Wall Drug but a very easy ride. Easy to get around. Hill City is a cute town, nice walking Main St.
Perfect location says it all. Quiet. Lots of kids but never heard any of them. Staff is very helpful in planning when to see what. Easy ride to Rapid City airport. Be prepared... No CVS or fast food in town. When you past the Walmart outside Rapid City, that's the only chain of shopping. It truly is stepping back in time.
As everyone says, the breakfast area is small, but it turns over quickly. There are tables outside if you so choose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kirk94132 Excellent courteous maid & Front Desk Service. Do not disturb missing.
The Front Desk and maids were very courteous and helpful. The beds were comfortable. There was a nice indoor swimming pool with a hot tub that was just the right temperature. The room was large enough. The bathroom area was large enough. The desk in the room was large enough and was larger than I have found in other motels. The WiFi worked with very little trouble. The breakfast was excellent. The only problems we had were that we had to go down to the front desk to get a "Do not disturb" sign and that they called us shortly before we had finished moving our things out of the room before the agreed upon check out time and asked if they could put our check out through their computer and after that our keys to the room and the back door would not work anymore and we had to have the maids let us into the room even though it was before the agreed upon check out time. My wife would also have liked the breakfast to be available further into the morning since she doesn't like to eat that early in the morning. #I think breakfast ended at 9:30 AM#

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saltracer Great Experience
We had two rooms for three nights and could not have been happier with the experience. We were able to extend our stay for one night more than originally booked. We will stay here next time in the Black Hills. Easy access to everything we wanted to see.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jhflwrchld Very Comfortable stay
We had a very nice 2 nights here. The breakfasts were very good. We ordered in great pizza (from Silver-something?) and the manager allowed us to eat it in the breakfast room. Which was great since there were 7 of us.
The pool itself was nice but the pool room was kind of cold. I think they had the AC on in there.
Our rooms were very comfortable & for the most part clean. I have a problem when they do not use the wand and vacuum along the edges--there was a stripe of dust on the floor along the walls.
We would stay here again and would suggest it to our friends.
For a kid friendly hotel, it was pretty quiet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Granny100 Window left open all day
We left our room in the morning. It was threatening rain so we made sure our window was closed and locked. When we returned six hours later we found our window wide open and the cool wind was blowing in. Of course we had left all of our clothes, laptop, etc. in the room. Someone with a key (housekeeping?) had unlocked and left the window open.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satchel Perfect for Black Hills visit
We stayed here for a 3 day visit to Custer State Park, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and the Black Hills. It was perfect... walking distance to town and close to attractions.
The staff was helpful and informative about the area.
The room was large and the bed was so very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seniorcitizen1 Comfort. Quite and location
This hotel was very close to Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and Crazy Horse Monument. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Within walking distance form the 1880 train ride, which was very enjoyable. Would recommend this hotel and would stay there again if in the area. Had a full breakfast, which was very good. The room was comfortable and quite.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jlilly Good location...but spendy...
Good location for staying in the Black Hills...not too far from Mt. Rushmore, Pactola, Sheridan Lake, Crazy Horse and more...and you're in Hill City which is a nice place to visit anyway. However, during the tourist season, expect to pay over $150 a night. I was here for work and got somewhat of a discount, but couldn't believe how families could afford to spend more than a couple of days at places like this (nearly all the hotels in the area were over $150#. That said, the place was like any Holiday Inn Express you would expect, clean, friendly staff, and a good breakfast. My only complaint about the hotel itself was that the breakfast area is very small and 2 of the 3 mornings i was there, I had no place to sit and had to try to drag my food upstairs. #No trays available that I could see).
Visit in September if you can.... cost is 1/2 and the area is gorgeous.

Room was clean and comfortable, pool was nice , breakfast was very good, staff very helpful,I wish they had the coffee in the lobby for us early risers. The door to the breakfast room was locked in the morning and you had to disturb the person getting the breakfast ready to get a cup of coffee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goldilocks1 Hospitality Plus!
This hotel achieves the standard of excellence against which I will judge other hotels in the future. Outside and inside, this property is immaculate. The rooms are attractive and well designed for ease of movement and quiet enjoyment. The staff is well trained to fulfill their duties and responsibilities. We experienced gracious hospitality extended to us from each and every staff member from our first welcome to our last goodbye. We truly enjoyed our vacation in South Dakota and were happy we chose the Holiday Inn Express in Hill City. When asked by friends at home where will we go on our next vacation, the answer is "The Holiday Inn Express in Hill City, South Dakota." Our thanks especially to Brenda, Mary, Delzie, Erica and Bill, and all the other staff members who make this hotel most enjoyable as a destination.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ColoradoRed Nice property, nice people
We stopped at Hill City Holiday Inn Express while on a road trip vacation. Check in was quick, easy and friendly. Turned out our door card didn't work at first, but that was quickly and easily dealt with. The room felt fresh and clean and well decorated, with nice beds and a clean bathroom. Comfortable beds, good climate control, good shower. The breakfast room was nice, and the attendant kept the food well stocked and the tables cleared and clean. She visited with some of the guests when she had a chance. The front desk lady also visited with guests as time permitted. The entire stay was a pleasant experience. Every Holiday Inn Express should be like this one.
