Our Story

Chalet Motel has been serving travelers in the Black Hills area since 1937 when it was built as a "cabin court" that provided roadside lodging on one of the only motorways in the Black Hills at that time.

The Chalet's vintage rooms are charming and cozy, which means cute and not very big, but we hope what we lack in size we more than make up for in charm and authenticity. Locally owned and operated.

Chalet Motel is located on Mount Rushmore Road at the east edge of Custer, just a few minutes walk from the heart of this small town and many of the dining, shopping and entertainment options in Custer. 

Custer State Park, Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore Memorial are each located just minutes from Chalet Motel, and there is a Mickelson Trail trailhead in town.

All rooms have private baths and include complimentary continental breakfast. Pets are allowed with responsible pet owners. Bicycles are available upon request to use within the city limits.

Thank you for stopping by. We hope to host you during your visit to the Black Hills.
