Guests at our Custer hotel are close to it all and can enjoy a vacation built around a rich history and culture. Custer State Park is nearby and a favorite destination for outdoor lovers where trails and recreation are plentiful.

Guests at our Custer hotel can also relax right on the property with a covered outdoor picnic area ideal for indulging outdoors. Free high-speed Internet makes it easy to keep up with work or check the itinerary for the day's plans. Enjoy a complimentary bike wash when staying with us, which is a must for bikers who need their ride to look perfect for the rally. The Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration is legendary, and we cater to folks from around the country who are here for an all American experience.

The Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally is another big event and the reason for the "on the house" bike washes. Whether you're here to hike the Mickelson Trail or stopping by on your annual rally runs, you'll be treated like a VIP at our Custer hotel. The VolksMarch, Buffalo Round Up and festivals throughout the year are all attractions that bring travelers to the slice of history we call Custer.

The superior customer service and restaurant-adjacent location helps make our Custer hotel a favorite in the area. With spacious, cool rooms, a soothing indoor pool & hot tub and upgraded amenities, each guest feels at home when staying with us. We understand that whether you're here for business or pleasure, an enjoyable stay starts with all the comforts of home and a warm welcome. We do our best to make your stay the best it can be.
