8/10 Very good

We Enjoyed the Cabin
Enjoyed most of our stay at Powder House. Cabin was private, beds were comfortable, cabin had necessary amenities and check in was very easy. The bathroom door did not close completely and the cabin was loud. Between fans and road traffic it was not quite what we expected but good overall.

Would stay here again
Outside of town but very convenient. Excellent restaurant. We were in a cabin closest to the road and restaurant so lots of traffic nice - something to keep in mind when you book

4/10 Fair

bad choice!
Room was so small you get barely fit your luggage in. Not very clean and the towels were thin enough to see to! One of the poorest rooms we have ever stayed in!

We stayed at the lodge to tour Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monuments. The staff was welcoming. The lodge was charming and the meals at the restaurant were delicious. The location was perfect!
