Keystone is not a big city yet this lodge is hidden from the main stream of downtown in a wonderful scenic surroundings. leaving the commercial zone behind. The rooms are very clean and beautiful. Many of the rooms have a partial view of Mt. Rushmore. The staff is very friendly and more than willing to assist you.

The lodge is just off the main tourist drag through the middle of Keystone, S.D. We stayed in room 1205, the so-called "Wedding Suite", complete with a Jacuzzi tub in the room, and a balcony out the back of the room. The room was comfortable and clean. The tub made the room feel a bit crowded, but not too much.... More

Great hotel with great breakfasts and rooms. Loved the Black Hills areas, especially for the drives. Porsche Club meeting in the area with "spirited" drives through Needles and Iron Mountain highways. Spectacular views (for the passenger) and spectacular drives (for me).

Wonderful location close enough to keystone and its attractions and yet perfectly quietly located in its own grounds just off the beaten path. A great location forEuropean travellers. A nice breakfast but no other dining means you have to leave the tranquility which is a bit of a shame....

We stayed 1 night while doing a road trip from Rapid City to Montana to visit several of the National Parks and other attractions in the area. The town is touristy and did not appeal to us. K Bar S Lodge is a short distance from the town nestled in the woods. Very quiet and peaceful with deer running thru... More

In the Keystone area, there is K Bar S, and then there are all the rest of the hotels and motels. No comparison. This hotel is ranked Number 1 for very good reason. The location and setting are perfect. It is best not to be located in the tacky Coney Island/tourist trap setting of Keystone. Fortunately, the entrance to K... More

Our stay at the K Bar S Lodge was wonderful. Beautiful property, wonderful staff, and the view was lovely. Very quiet, we enjoyed watching the chipmunks and deer. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We definitely recommend the K Bar S!

K Bar S Lodge is a well maintained, quiet hotel located off the main road in Keystone. The lobby and room were great, the view (which does cost a little bit more - $20 at the time of writing) of George Washington on Mt. Rushmore is pretty cool, and the grounds are kept well. The breakfast, which is included, is... More

The setting of the hotel is wonderful, we saw quite a few animals while we were there: marmots, deers, chipmuncks and squirrels. The rooms are large, we were on the 2nd floor and had a balcony with a view of Mt Rushmore (profile of G. Washington). The free breakfast is also good and they have gluten free bread if you... More
