Rooms were priced reasonably and very clean. Restaurant was great, but you wouldn't want to eat there every day or it would break your budget. Pool is nice and play ground is well kept. It is located right off the highway but you really don't hear any traffic.

We recently returned from the Black Hills and had a GREAT time. Powder House Lodge was wonderful! We have 5 children and rented the 2-room cabin. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, nice pool and friendly staff every day. Our only bother was the smell of the air conditioners in the rooms. They smelled musty when on. We highly recommend staying here.... More

The cabin was a good size for our family of four. Each kid got a bed with the pull out couch so all were happy. The location was great as we hit several things by Rapid City and Keystone. Very well maintained and the restaurant was good too. Wonderful cinnamon rolls the size of your face! Yummo!

We stayed in a two queen cabin just steps from the restaurant. Our cabin had a large couch and a large dorm sized fridge with freezer shelf which came in handy for our family. Room and bathroom were larger than expected and very quiet even with our block of cabins completely full and one group using the attached patio for... More

SUPER close to Mount Rushmore. My husband and I stayed here one night(unfortunately not longer!) We stayed in the last cabin #57. It was so nice and peaceful. Nice beds. Nestled into the hillside with trees all around. It was nice and cool so we had the windows open for fresh air. Would stay here again!!!!

Stayed 2 nights on a family vacation (kids ages 6, 3). Its cabins on the side of a hill along the highway. We stayed in the recently-built, big cabin up at the top of the hill. Details. THE GOOD --The cabin is almost brand new, and is fantastic for longer stays with a large group (it has 4 bedrooms). --Large,... More

If you're lodging in Keystone know that there are not many nearby restaurants to pick from for dinner. We had a hearty appetite and were looking for something nice for our last night in town. We found this restaurant online and the reviews were great so we gave it a chance. Dear goodness, amazing! Friendly hostess. Knowleadgeable and patient waitress.... More

Despite three recommendations from the staff at the hotel where we were staying, we did not have a good meal at the restaurant on the premises at Powder House Lodge. They have a pretty good wine selection and we were allowed to taste a wine we were unfamiliar with. That's about where the professionalism stopped. We got our salads and... More

IMK923 I apologize once again that you folks felt rushed in regards to the timing of your meal. As I explained table side last night, we are by no means trying to force as many people through as fast as we can. We truly want our guests to enjoy their time dining with us. We try and time all of... More

The food was done perfectly, there are many options and the service is wonderful. Coming from elsewhere, the prices are impressively low for the excellent quality! Everyone was satisfied! Would definitely return!

I Have been coming to the Black Hills area 2-3 times a year and I always stay at the Powder House Lodge. Helpful and friendly stuff. Beds are very comfy, Nice and quite.Have never had any problems for as many times I have been there. All in all it's the best place to stay if you stay in Keystone!!!
