We were supposed to stay at the 4 Presidents Best Western, but they bumped our reservations. That worked out well for us. This motel (resort) and its grounds are very beautiful. There isn't a bad room in the resort. A great value for your money. F.Y.I. the 4 Presidents Best Western is outside of town, no view and kind of... More

We selected the K Bar S as it was listed in many Road Scholar tours of S.D. After staying at the lodge for three days, we fully understand why it is the best in the MT Rushmore area. Rooms have a clear view of Washington's profile, are clean and comfortable with high level toiletries. The staff at the main lodge... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere of this Hotel. Quiet, in the trees with somewhat of a view of Mount Rushmore. The reception area has a lovely great room, fireplace, beverage center and deck. The room is spacious and clean. The breakfast was ok which is why 5 stars were not given.

Large well appointed rooms, with all the standard amenities, coffee maker, mini fridge, but no microwave, there is one in the main lodge. Plenty of parking included, some rooms view Mt. Rushmore (George Washington in profile). A good breakfast, hot items vary from day to day, plus waffles, and all the standard items. Check in and out is handled quickly... More

I really enjoyed this lodge. We stayed up at the main lodge. The was a large fireplace and deck. They had beverages at the reception area. The room was large, comfortable and nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet in the gazebo is great. Nice and varied breakfast with a wonderful view. This lodge is just off the main road in Keystone... More

We enjoyed our stay in such a peaceful setting just a short distance away from town & Mt. Rushmore. It was so nice to sit on our deck & relax on a sunny day overlooking the lovely grounds. Rooms, in the new section where we were, are fairly ordinary but clean with comfortable beds & comfy pillows. The lobby area... More

While we normally stay just one town away in Hill City we decided to move our base of operations to Keystone this trip. It was a very good choice as we discovered the K Bar S Lodge in Keystone. Setting in the Black Hills just outside of Keystone we could see George Washington on Mt. Rushmore. The service was exceptional... More

It's a comfortable, clean, well located property. There are rooms with a profile view of Mt. Rushmore; however the view is distant. That said, this was a neat feature. Yellow Bellied Marmots play and sun themselves on the grounds, for extra entertainment. We found the breakfast to be acceptable to good. The only issue here is that the food items,... More

A really nice place to stay near Mt Rushmore. I had read a review about a room with a "view of Mt Rushmore" and when I mentioned it at the desk they immediately changed our room and that was the kind of service throughout our stay. Jordan and his front desk staff were always helpful. The setting was serene and... More
