I stayed here for 4 nights and had a comfortable room with a king bed looking out on the forest. The bathroom is a bit spartan and could use some enhancements. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is included, but it is quite limited. My room wasn't cleaned as much as it should have been, and I should have said something to the staff, and I am sure they would have addressed it. But we were so busy hiking and exploring I kept forgetting. This is part of a large KOA campground so be prepared for crowds during the summer season. I would definitely return.

We stayed for 5 nights I the lodge. Had a great room right next to the indoor hot tub. my feedback is that if you are going to have an amenity for guests to use make it useable. The hot tub closed at 9 pm. Most guests are just getting back from the days adventures about 8 or 9 so I would recommend keeping the hot tub open until 11 or so so guests can get a chance to relax and use it. Other than that the kids loved the pools (heated) ,water slide, golf and outdoor chess. Good value and I would rate it great value if the hot tub was open longer - the breakfast was lacking however. add some eggs or meat. oh yes and they claim to have wifi but it was never working

We were very pleased when we got to the lodge and found our room. It was nice and clean. We were on the lower level and had a patio and it was easy to visit friends and spend time sitting watching the deer walk through the property. One downside to these room was no key for the exterior door, we would have to walk around to the front if the door shut. The resort was really nice. There were so many activities for the kids to do 2 swimming pools, 2 playgrounds, jumping pillow, climbing wall, water slide, mini golf, ping pong, horse back riding, community fire pit and other organized activities. One thing I wish they would improve, would be the wifi. But would definitely like to go back.

Great location, not modern accomodations

This lodge is conveniently located to Mount Rushmore and has a lot onsite, but wasn't quite what we expected. There are a lot of RVs parked, in addition to cabins and rooms inside the lodge, and we went during some sort of Biker Event, so the place was very crowded. Our cabin had nice views and was nestled back in the woods, but the cleanliness was a bit questionable, but alright. The rooms did not have WI-FI, and the TV did not work. If you are fine with a "camping-like" feel, you probably would not have a problem staying here. The complimentary breakfast inside the lodge was a complete joke. Toast, bagels, cold cereal, juice, and coffee was pretty much all that was offered. Some people were microwaving Styrofoam bowls of oatmeal...

We stayed in row cabin. Only to discover that there was no wi-fi, maid service or TV. Told that they were working on TV, only to discover for three weeks! Informed of no services AFTER checking in! When checking out, we thanked them and the 'kid' answers "yea'- no Thank you, come again, hope you enjoyed your stay. Customer service could improved
