If you’d rather stay in a modern hotel with a rustic feel than a “historic” one that shows its age, the Lodge will serve you well. Don’t be turned off by the casino: the resort is family-friendly, with great restaurants, a fun “indoor water playland” with a pirate ship for kids to climb on and a killer whale slide, and suites that comfortably accommodate families without sacrificing privacy. Plus, the Lodge is in a convenient location within driving distance to many nearby attractions (though it’s nearly an hour to Mt. Rushmore), the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are pleasant and helpful.
