So, it's right across from some restaurants. Had no problem parking. The lady working there was very nice and helpful. There are outdoor areas to hang out, on a really nice deck. The rooms are not overly large, but that's okay. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. We did have a slight problem with the room we booked,... More

We were greeted like old friends, which as we had visited in 2013 I suppose we were! Tammi & Cine are great hosts and always go the extra mile to make you feel "part of the family" The rooms are very clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The outside decking area is a great place to meet new & old friends... More

My favorite spot was the upper deck overlooking the area. I'd take my coffee up there to start my day. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I have recommended this to others traveling to SD. Thank you so much!

We decided to stay in Keystone last minute after arriving to Mt Rushmore late and attending the lighting ceremony. Pretty much everything was closed but they answered my call and opened up so we could check in. Small but very inviting and gracious hosts. Breakfast with great hospitality in the morning with directions of the best places to go that... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Battle Creek Lodge for four nights with my 77 yr. old mother and 14 yr. old son while on our Mt. Rushmore vacation last week. We booked this property based on all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The... More

We stayed here based on trip advisor's recommendation. We weren't disappointed. It was probably one of the cleanest places we have stayed. Bathrooms are large. The people who run it are very nice and the breakfast was good. It is walking distance to the boardwalk and the train. Very pretty in the cliff. I think it was reasonably priced. They... More

This was our second year in a row staying with Tammy and Cine and once again it was a great time. It's a great place to stay when visiting the Black Hills and the Sturgis rally. Our king bed was very comfortable and the firepit is always a welcome retreat after a day of motorcycle riding. If you're a biker,... More

This was a very convenient place to stay in Keystone. If you come in after 8PM everything is pretty much locked up but, they do leave the keys for you. The beds were definitely NOT as comfortable as stated in some of the reviews. That actually was the main reason I picked this place. Thought that after a long day... More
