This little gem could easily be overlooked. It doesn't look like much from the road. But we like hotels that are unique or quirky and local rather than chain wherever possible. The Brookside fits the bill nicely and is a good value in a busy tourist town where even the Super 8 is over $100. We had a large room... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Brookside Motel. It was within walking distance to restaurants in downtown Keystone. The staff were friendly and informative. The continental breakfast was adequate and we would come back if staying in this area.

The motel is nice, clean, and close to town. We stayed three nights at a good price. The only drawbacks were that the shower was a little small and the breakfast lacked quality. However, I would recommend it to friends.

We stayed two nights and have no complaints. Nice to stay in a place that is NOT carpeted! We were chilled the first night and couldn't figure out how to get heat from the unit (i.e. wall A/C) and they kindly lent us a portable heater. The price was the lowest in the area--but it was a great place to... More

The Brookside met my expectations except for the breakfast. The breakfast was a bit of a let down. However the motel was clean, comfortable and the employees were nice. There is a little brook behind the motel to explore and find some rocks that you pay for in the shops around town. The Brookside is within walking distance to all... More

We stayed two days at the Brookside Motel while in Keystone, SD. This is an older motel and they are in the process of renovating the rooms. Although our room was mostly renovated, it was extremely small. The bathroom was especially tight but new shower stall and sink. The motel is right next to a busy highway so it was... More

Howdy Joesph ~ We are glad you chose to stay at The Brookside! From your review we can tell that you booked a single queen room. Although the single queens are the smallest rooms on the property, we do have several other options, including King Jacuzzi Suites, and Double Queens with 2 bathrooms -- which offer much more room for...

We were traveling on a budget so the fancy hotels were out of the question. Still, we wanted a place that was clean and comfortable. This was definitely it. Don't be fooled by the ugly blue paint on the outside. The rooms are spacious and clean and beds are very comfortable. BTW...the owner says they are going to paint the... More

This motel is very clean, has great rooms, and great customer service. I would highly recommend it. If you want a cute little place to stay this is it. You don't have to worry about noise. They serve a great breakfast.

The Brookside motel had its perks as far as location and cost. However, the room could have been cleaner by just wiping things down better. Also, the pillows had a lot of dark longer hair both outside the pillow cases and inside. I do believe the sheets were clean, but the hair was probably from the staff person who changed... More

The pictures on this sight are quite old, for it didn't look like this in any shape or form. The place needs to be demolished and start all over again. Potholes, uneven pavement, gravel, green murky water lurked in a miniature pool, front door had a gap and didn't close all the way, soap the size and thickness of a... More
