The owners were on property most of the time. This is a small hotel but very clean and located in town but somewhat away from the main drag (not too far but far enough). We were able to plan our days with the help of the owner. She was very knowledgeable and super friendly. Actually everyone we met in South... More

Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed it. Room was cozy and comfortable, and the lodge is located just a short walk from main street and plenty of restaraunts. We felt at home from the minute we arrived, and enjoyed talking with Tammy about local things to do over breakfast each morning. The place has a great feel to it and... More

Much Aloha and helpfulness. Love from The Quams. Tammy and Cine are most accommodating. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. And we are traveling all the way from Maui. They have always opened their doors for us. You'd be crazy not to stay with them. Big hearts!!

Very “friendly and family” atmosphere. The owners are very outgoing and friendly with tonnes of knowledge of the area. Within walking distance to the downtown boardwalk area with shops and restaurants. The room is modest for the price point, but the lodge atmosphere makes up for it. Complimentary breakfast was very good, and the homemade carrot muffins were “seconds worthy”.

Thanks for taking time to review our lodge! We appreciate you staying with us and are glad that you enjoyed your time here. One of the best things about Battle Creek is the central location to the "main strip" in Keystone and the fact that everything is so accessible and walkable. We love being able to share our knowledge of... More

The question with this review is where to start because as you can see by my title we have come to consider the owners to be like our family.

We travel to the Keystone area several times a year and have stayed in many of the local properties. That was until we found Battle Creek and the people who run it. Now, we will not stay anywhere but with them. The Lodge is small but what is lacks in size it makes up for in service and attention. From... More

The lodge and the people are the best. Everything people say about their experiences at the lodge are true. Located at the edge of the town of Keystone so much fun is within walking distance. 3 hour steam train ride. Helicopter ride. Museums. The food prices in town are vary resonable.

We booked this place off of the reviews of trip advisor. We've been to Keystone many times and have never considered staying here. What a wonderful find! It is conveniently located only a few blocks from downtown. The rooms were spotless and the beds very comfortable. There was an awesome fire pit and deck area available for us to use.... More
