Thank you to the owners for a wonderful stay!! I always enjoy staying at hotels owned by individuals and appreciate all their hard work and attention. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the outdoor space felt like someone's home. Fire pit, gas grills and comfy chairs for all to enjoy. The breakfast was WONDERFUL!! Homemade breakfast burritos and fresh fruit...... More

What a cute and quaint lodge!! The lobby was decorated with antiques and western style pieces. I loved it! I wish we could have made it to breakfast, but after a long drive and dinner in town (walking distance), we slept in. The room was clean, decorated nicely, and met the approval of the "hotel brat"-- ME!!! It was a... More

While I was happy with the location and accessibility to downtown....I feel that this establishment could do more to deserve their high trip advisor rating. The beds WERE comfortable but the room was VERY small. The black out curtains and opaque shade made it even seem darker and smaller. The shade broke while we were there and instead of fixing... More

We spent two relaxing nights at this wonderful quaint inn. Is it fancy? No. Is it modern? No. Is it roomy and full of amenities? No. Is it comfortable and inviting and friendly? Yes! The breakfast was great and we felt like family as we had fun and informative conversations with Cine and with other guests. We saw familiar faces... More

We have never visited this area before and were so happy with the location of this lodge. I loved that it was small and you were treated like a friend not just another guest. The rooms were very well kept and restocked daily. The beds were very comfortable with 4 pillows per bed in different firmness types. This is located... More

This inn was almost like staying at a bed and breakfast. Tammy and Cine, the owners, are very friendly and want to ensure you have a pleasant stay. A small home cooked breakfast will greet you in the morning, along with great conversation and recommendations about what to see and do. There is no pool or amenities found at larger... More

We just left Keystone after a 4 night stay at Battle Creek Lodge. I can not say enough good things about this place! Tammy and Cine are AMAZING hosts'. From the time we checked in until we checked out, we were made to feel at home. The location cannot be beat. We visited Jewel Cave, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer... More

We have been to Keystone several times before but never paid much attention to this hotel. We were very happy to find a great hotel. Our first score was the price. We hit Keystone during primetime summer and out usual hotels were approaching $200 per night. By chance we found this hotel and got rooms for $109 per night. The... More

I would like to recognize Tammy and Cine for making our 5 night stay a truly memorable experience. When our family left our clean and comfortable accommodations to return home, we all felt the outstanding service was as impressive as Mt. Rushmore itself. The complimentary deluxe continental breakfast was a great way to begin our days of exploration and sightseeing.... More
