Like my last dog rescue Round Trip from Rapid City to Cheyenne, I found that it was best to spend the night in Lusk rather than attempt to drive through the Black Hills in darkness on my return. I was pleasantly greeted by a fellow I took to be Tom Wassenburger (hope I spelled that right), the owner, who checked me in and assigned a room. He agreed with me that animals on the roads at night just north and east of Lusk are a hazard, as he had almost had an unpleasant experience with an elk once! My room was comfortable, clean, and HVAC was modern and functional. Nice to have the option to leave the HVAC fan run continuously. Also great to have a functional exhaust in bathroom to get humid air out during a shower, something I have found sorely lacking in the majority of hotels where I have stayed. The shower curtain was clean and not "sour" smelling, like I have encountered all-too-often elsewhere. Next morning, as on my last visit in Sept 2015, I was given a personal tour of the breakfast bar by Loré, the General Manager. The lobby and breakfast areas have been remodeled since my last stay, incorporating a nice contemporary flair with a lot more room. It was a great breakfast, including orange & apple juice, nice hot coffee, the usual foods, biscuits/gravy, waffles, milk, yogurt, diced potatoes, sausage and real eggs/cheese. Loré went out of her way to help make my breakfast "special" as there were no others eating when I stopped in. She also checked me out, and all the other staff I met there were universally friendly and helpful. Lusk is still a nice little town. for you travelers from CO Sprs, FOCO, or Denver en route to the Black Hills or Badlands, BW Pioneer in Lusk is a nice RON. less
