Have seen many excellent reviews of restaurant and lodge. We had one evening meal at the restaurant and would rate as average. Pasta dishes were definitely over sauced and bland. Expensive for quality. The view of the road and valley from the outside lounge was great. Fun to watch the bikes on highway during Sturgis week. The cabin, number 52,... More

This was a great lodge. Clean, courteous staff, Rooms were rustic, ours was a bit small, but it was the last one available as we booked late. Wifi was not great. However a very comfortable bed!! Amazing restaurant. Best Prime Rib ever! Look forward to visiting again.

Our bed was comfortable, the room was very clean and the staff was friendly. The lodge was really close to Mount Rushmore and a short drive away from The Crazy Horse Memorial, Jewel Cave and Rapid City.

Stayed here during the rally. Rooms are very clean. Pool spotless! Restaurant delicious. Can't wait to go back. Staff always willing to help with suggestions. Close to Mt. Rushmore and downtown Keystone ( a great little town)!

The room was clean and staff was wonderful! Loved receiving emails before and after our stay! What a wonderful family run business! Would for sure stay here again next time we are in the area! Out of the way of the crowds but close enough to all the attractions!

It is close to Mt. Rushmore and other attractions. The rooms are small, but they are clean and rustic. The price is very reasonable. It has its own very good restaurant. The manager is always available and takes a personal interest in the place. Employees are all friendly and helpful.

The cabin was great! A loft for the kids, a bedroom for grandma and grandpa. and a comfortable hide-a-bed for Mom. Staff was great and very helpful, even when we locked both of our keys in the cabin! The kids loved the pool. The restaurant was great, food and service! Great value for the money! Right down the road from... More

I have been to Keystone several times and have stayed in the same old motels. I almost missed seeing this one because it is listed as speciality lodging in tripadvisor instead of in with the hotels, but I was so pleased I found it. We were only staying one night so just stayed in one of their hotel rooms. The... More

We stayed in the motel one night and a cabin another night. Both were clean and comfortable, very well cared for. The staff was wonderful, there was even a gentleman holding the door open for me every time I entered and left the office. I was impressed with the evening meals in the restaurant, although breakfast... Not so much. There's... More
