First time in South Dakota and looking for a nice place to stay that is not like your run-of-the-mill hotel when I ran across the K Bar S Lodge on Trip Advisor. I booked and waited for my vacation to begin. We arrived on the property late and we're tired from driving through rain so we checked in and turned... More

We are finishing up a 5 day visit to the Black Hills of South Dakota. K Bar S Lodge is a beautiful lodge nestled in the hills away from the touristy areas, but it's minutes away from Keystone, wonderful restaurants, Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park and much more. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings as it was mostly adult guests when... More

This is a great place to stay after being at Mt. Rushmore. We were there after bring at Mt. Rushmore. I had my camera with a powerful zoom lens and was able to take pictures of the night-lights on the faces of Presidents Washington and Lincoln's profiles. I had to rig a way to hold my camera steady. If you... More

I enjoyed the stay here. Couldn't see the monument from the hotel like I was led to believe, but it's close to everything, nice, and inexpensive. We couldn't connect to the wifi and could not find the breakfast the next morning.

Found this place on TripAdvisor. Believe what you read. One of the best places we have ever stayed. Close to everything in the Black Hills, in fact we could see a profile of George Washington from our room. Friendly and helpful people. Facility is clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when we go back

Stayed here for one night whilst I was visiting SD and Mount Rushmore. Booked here based on good reviews on a number of sites. And it didn't disappoint at all. K Bar S Lodge is close to town yet far enough away to feel like you were in the mountains - lovely set up. Allowed me an early check in... More

This is the largest and supposedly best rated hotel in Keystone, a small tourist trap of a town with not much else. I made the mistake of not asking for a top floor room when I made my reservation, and the front desk clerks basically said "tough luck" and refused to change my room when I checked in. Then they...

This was our first time staying in the southern Black Hills. We made a great pick in staying at this resort. Nice rooms with what we thought was a nice profile view of Washington and Jefferson on Mt. Rushmore as seen from our balcony.. The view of the resort grounds was great as well. If you want to save a... More

If you are going to see the Presidents, stay here. The view during the day and nighttime lighting is incredible. The secluded location and grounds are simply peaceful and incredible. Everyone at the resort was knowledgeable about the attractions. I recommend a 2nd floor with balcony. Additional places we visited were: Grizzlys restaurant for an outstanding burgers and beer in...
