TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Buffalo Ridge Inn Custer
This Best Western is an older one, well used, with a few upgrades and was in a good area, easily accessible. I didn't read the fine print and discovered our room didn't have a refrigerator or microwave. The room was small, stuffy and the smoke alarm was disabled. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. It was a bit more expensive than some of the other Best Westerns Hotels we've stayed in recently, but they are in peak summer season now and you have to expect to pay more.

Monday morning I took the truck in. They said they were busy but could probably look at it sometime in the next couple of days. But if anything major needed to be done, it would probably be Friday before they could get to it. So I walked to a car ...
... were good, little traffic, only one construction work stop and a pronghorn crossing the road in front of us. Sally drove the entire way. We made a stop at the Nebraska State Line for a picture. Another state for our birthday girl. Gassed up at the junction of 385, 18 & 79. Was refreshing to drive so long with little traffic. We are now in Custer State Park, South Dakota which is yet ...
... the man at the collection booth leaned out and handed me a brochure and a free ticket. He said, " I noticed you are a veteran from your truck's license plates, here is a free ticket, and thank you for your service!" I said, "Thank you, Sir" and continued in. Wow, that was nice, as the normal entrance fee is $11 per person.
Inside, we went to the Visitor's Center and took about an hour and a half to look at the first class Native American displays, ...
