We had the family suite with a living room, fireplace, bunk beds, full dining table, small kitchen, room with 2 queen beds. The bathroom was pretty nice, the room was cold, but wonderful. There was free breakfast and overall it was pretty great to come back to each day. Very good prices too. We loved it so much we decided... More

We had a king suite. Couldn't believe how big it was. Bathroom was granite from top to bottom. The front desk people were very nice. Breakfast was not so great. Would definitely recommend this place. So close to Mt. Rushmore!!

It sounds like you had an excellent time with us despite the fact that you didn't book the room type you meant to. A quick note if you do stay again and book a suite, or for other travelers: our suite bathrooms... More

Let me start off with the staff is very friendly and always offered a "hello." The rooms however, are in need of updates. The pictures on their website shows their newly remodeled rooms that are actually in hallways inside the hotel. The room that we had was direct access from outside (we did not have any problems with noise). The... More

Great location in regards to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, etc. I might would stay in Hill City next trip though for lack of eating options in Keystone after 8p. Hotel was GREAT. Super nice staff, and a great room (S326) at a great rate. Room was huge and very clean. Corridors are clean, but decor seems a... More

Stayed at the Rushmore Express for a couple of nights and was delighted with the room. The staff was friendly and the motel was centrally located in the town of Keystone. Everything was in walking distance.

The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful, the toilet flushed, and the sink, internet, and lights worked. If that's all you need, this hotel will work. The location is at the end of a dead end mini street. Our room faced a bank of woods which was pretty. The room was simply 'dated'. The furniture (round kitchen... More

Regarding the room type you stayed in--you're right, there is a need for renovation. In fact we have actually started this process, and will spend the... More

We stayed over Labor Day. We took a basic room as there was only the two of us. This motel is clean, comfortable and good for what we needed. We sat out on the outdoor walkway in front of our door, had a few drinks at night. They have plastic chairs outside every door. Thought about going in hot tub,... More
