We stayed in a "suite" with two full size bed. Room was "rustic" and can be considered adequate. Lighting in the room was not bright. No elevator to upper floors. Complimentary continental breakfast was very sparse, with bread, bagels, and English muffins. Fruits consist of small apples, oranges and bananas. Cleanliness of the place is substandard. For the price I... More

The room was tiny, the chairs weren't comfortable. The bed (queen) was fine. The site we booked with said this was a two star hotel, it isn't. There are much nicer hotels in Keystone, and the Hills for the money. The breakfast offered few choices.

The rooms are tiny but clean, the bed is super-soft and crowded between walls and all the furniture is past its prime. Sound-proofing is poor, climate control is good. The smoking rooms are all downstairs and there was no smoke smell in our upstairs room. Parking immediately outside the building is tight and limited but there are large open parking... More

Nice little place to stay and it was on the outskirts of town. Pool was clean and warm. Hot tub was great! Room was small but everything looked nice. Room did NOT smell like cigarettes. Never heard anyone through the walls. They offered breakfast items such as toast, bagels, muffins, cereal, apples, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee, and my favorite... More

The hotel is off the beaten-track --tucked back in a small town very close to Mt. Rushmore--, but the value is tremendous. The rooms tend to be small, but clean and comfortable. The indoor pool and spa were really surprisingly nice --in fact, the pool temperature was absolutely perfect! The morning complementary breakfast is not tremendous, but you can get... More

Basic Econo Lodge with friendly employees, clean room and convenient location (short drive to Mt. Rushmore and near tourist themed shops). Free internet and breakfast. Room and bed tight but for $45 a night, we were happy.

This was an older hotel with updated rooms. The staff was friendly. Pool was lovely. We had a suite with a couch that was torn and I reported it. The manager was happy that I reported it and she said it would be taken care of. But on the 2nd day it still hadn't been. Breakfast was not that great... More

This is an older hotel but our room was newer and we liked it. Second floor, large room with convenient back door to the steps. We arrived at night and were glad to get a room. Located near Mt. Rushmore, it was a great find.

Stayed Wed 9-18-13. Lady at the desk was the best ever - friendly, accommodating, good advice on the area. Parking is tight, but I had motorcycle and she had us park right up by front door. Room was small, but adequate. Just need to sleep and bathe so how big a room does one really need? Too old for stairs... More

This was a good choice as we were close to Mount Rushmore and the town itself is a nice place to walk about. The room itself was a bit small but it was clean and we were comfortable there.The parking was tight. Not too much choice at brreakfast but as we had an early start we were pleased they started...
