Mount Rushmore National Memorial Hotels: 4 reviews and 5 photos
The main reason for our trip to South Dakota was to visit Mount Rushmore National Memorial and also have a look at the Black Hills in which it is located. Based on the comments of some other VTers who had already visited the area, we decided to stay clear of Rapid City and find a motel situated in the mountains themselves. The small 'city' of Hill City (population - 780) fit the bill perfectly - located as it is only a few miles from both Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial. On short notice, we planned to be in South Dakota over the Labour Day weekend, so called ahead to be on the safe side, booking three nights at the Best Western Golden Spike for US$101/per night (taxes included).
Unique Qualities: It turned out to be a nice new looking motel, beautifully located with the Black Hills in the background. In addition to the comfortable room with large-screen TV and air conditioning, they have both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The outdoor pool is very well landscaped, with shubbery, grassy areas and a great place to sit out enjoying the warm evening airs.
The main lobby is large and sells all sorts of trinkets and their attached restaurant was not bad either. We had a couple of evening meals there that did the trick and their breakfast menu was varied enough that we did not bother going anywhere else in the mornings before we headed out on our days adventures.
