THE best staff!
The staff is so friendly and helpful. We loved our room. It was clean, cute and we had a 1st floor pool view room. The rooms do not have ironing boards. We inquired about one and they brought one to our room right away. The beds were Nectar mattresses I believe..we were not fans of those, and the shower head is really low. However, neither of those things would prevent us from staying there on our next visit to Custer, SD. It is the perfect location if you're visiting Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument. And it was only about 2 hours to the Badlands. We loved the Feel Good Cafe next to the Bavarian Inn. We enjoyed breakfast there every day. The pastries were so good!

Loved it, very nice in every aspect
Property well kept and so the rooms. The person attending the reception provided good tips for the trip. I highly recommend this hotel, the decoration is nice like a country hotel in Germany. If I visit the area again, I will plan to stay there. Last, they will provide and mail your postcards for free.
