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!

Great place, great rooms, people, restaurant. Will return, can't wait. The cabin rooms were clean, pool was clean. Had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant both days and both the food and service was awesome. Very close to Keystone and some great riding nearby.

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

When planning my stay in this area, I really wanted to stay in a cabin rather than a motel/hotel. While there were many hotels and motels right in the center of town within walking distance of all the shops, etc., I opted for a more quiet location just 2 miles out of town set into the black Hills. We ended... More

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!
