We booked an extended weekend get away for my daughter and myself. I was very happy with the hotel. It was very quiet and staff was exceptional, especially Darla and Patty. We both felt safe which was huge because I rarely do when we travel without my husband. Very nice hotel for the money. The only thing I didn't care...

It's a lovely lodge. Nice clean room. Plenty of pillows on the bed and the bed was comfortable. I wasn't expecting much for the price I paid. I was pleasantly surprised! The first room they booked me into the safety latch was broken. I called the front desk & requested to be moved. They were very accommodating. I was traveling...

Stayed at the Blackstone one night for a nearby wedding. Staff was friendly and allowed us to check in early to get ready. Breakfast next day was good and had a nice variety. Definitely would stay again if in the area.

Blackstone lodge was nice; then again I really don't have much to compare it to. We stayed one night after a long marathon. The shower was hot and the beds were soft, so for that, I am eternally greatful. Walking into the lobby, they've clearly done some renovations which gives the place an atmosphere more reminiscent of the town of...

Hi Derrick, I am so glad you enjoyed the beds & hot shower! Our beds are awesome!!! Yes - our bar only has basic bar food, however we work closely with the Homestake Chop House Restaurant & make sure to keep a selection of menus for the many restaurants that are close to us. We hope to see you again.

My husband and I stayed here in October, for 2 nights. We used it as a base for the northern Black Hills area. The staff is wonderfully friendly, the room and bed very nice, up-to-date and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We would stay here again on our next trip to this area.

This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean and they have outdoor hot tubs. The price is fair and the staff is friendly and professional. This is my new go to hotel. It's just up the road from down town Deadwood, so you can have a raging good time down town, then just ride the shuttle back to...

This place is clean and comfortable. It has a good breakfast and the person taking care of the food was keeping everything stalked up. All at a great price. Only a short drive to Deadwood at a better price.

We had a large room, with 2 beds and a hide a bed so plenty of room for our family. The room was very nice, large, clean and comfortable. The bar downstairs has inexpensive wine and beer, and the breakfast, included with the room, was amazing.
