Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Hill City Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Hill City, SD discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Hill City hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Hill City is the oldest existing city in Pennington County, South Dakota. With roots in the 19th-century Black Hills mining rush, the community has a long and storied history. The first miners settled the area in 1876 and called it Hillyo. Despite the establishment of a post office in 1877, the city nearly became a ghost town once miners moved on to other opportunities. Thanks to the discovery of tin in 1883, however, Hill City rebounded and the population started to grow at a steady pace.

Today, Hill City benefits from its location, which places it within easy driving distance of Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Black Hills National Forest, and the popular Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Thanks to an influx of new residents and visitors, Hill City has become a diversified center for arts and cultural events.

Whatever your reason for visiting Hill City, you want to find the right hotel that allows you to explore everything this ruggedly beautiful place has to offer.

When is the best time to visit Hill City, SD?

Many of the visitor attractions around Hill City experience their peak season from June through August. Since hotel rates tend to increase during the summer months, you'll want to book your room several weeks in advance before accommodations start to fill up. Despite the crowds, average highs reach only 81 degrees Fahrenheit in July with evening lows settling around 50 degrees. If you're the type of traveler who likes to avoid excessive heat, visiting Hill City in the summer can be a pleasant option.

The best time to visit South Dakota, however, is during the spring and fall shoulder seasons. September and October are ideal months to plan a visit because the visitor crowds taper off, which ushers in lower hotel rates. You'll also enjoy pleasant temperatures averaging in the 60s for much of the season.

April and May are your next best options for visiting Hill City. Spring can be wet and cold in this part of South Dakota, but with a head start on the visitor rush, you can take advantage of cheaper rates and shorter lines at major visitor attractions.

Visitors tend to stay away from the Hill City area from November through March, but don't discount a winter getaway. Destinations such as Mount Rushmore are open 24 hours a day, year-round, with the visitor center closing only on Christmas Day. Some facilities close for the season, however, including the Mount Rushmore Sculptor's Studio. On average, the Black Hills region experiences more than 150 inches of fresh snow annually, which can make for a cozy and romantic holiday.
