... Mount Rushmore in the distance, peaking through the forest. Yesterday we encountered a fifth wheel that couldn't pass through the first tunnel. Don't know how they got around that one. We had our friends over for drinks and appetizers after our excursion and they treated us to dinner at the Chuck Wagon Restaurant which is here in Hart Ranch. This place has everything!

TravelPod Member ReviewsQuality Inn Hill City
The room was large enough and clean. The bathtub was an advantage with a child. Plenty of towels. The indoor pool was a plus as it was super cold out. They also have a laundry area and have soap available. The front desk staff were helpful and check out was noon, providing time to do that laundry. The hot breakfast is the usual variety but it was hot and the cold food is kept in a frig to keep it cold. Easy driving to Mt. Rushmore and all surrounding sites. Would stay again.
