We stayed two nights in this beautiful secluded lodge. Staff is very friendly. Our room included a private balcony with a side view of Washington of Mount Rushmore. The room was clean, beds comfortable, free self-service laundry a plus ( purchase detergent at front desk), peaceful, quite surroundings. Easy access to downtown and Mount Rushmore. There is no elevator but... More

We LOVED K Bar S Lodge. The kids loved running through the field in front of the lodge chasing the marmots. What a beautiful location for a wedding! We also enjoyed the balcony view of Mt. Rushmore, the amazing hot breakfast, great wifi, & the Starbucks Keurig cups in our room. We had a quiet, restful night! I enjoyed a... More

The room we had faced the mountain, it would have been better to request an upstairs room facing Mt. Rushmore and the meadow. Still it was a nice room with comfy beds, nice linens. Fabulous morning breakfast was provided. Eggs and breakfast meats, cook your own waffles with fruits and whipped cream for toppings, bread and pastry variety, several juices...orange... More

We could see Mt. Rushmore (the profile) from our balcony! The big, grassy field on the property was PERFECT for children in need of wearing off energy before going to the campfire for s'mores. The breakfast each morning was DELICIOUS, and I used the complimentary washer and dryer twice. I've already recommended K Bar S to family members planning to... More

Super clean, very friendly! So convenient, but just a 1/2 mile off the noisy downtown area on gorgeous grounds with a view of the side of Washingtons face from many rooms. Grounds are peaceful - a good nights rest. Rooms are well equipped and comfortable. Bed was a little soft, but I still slept well. Free guest laundry - can... More

We spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. The location couldn't be better. You can see George Washington's profile on the monument from our balcony! It's only a 7 minute drive from Mt Rushmore but feels very secluded from the tourist trap that is Keystone, SD. Breakfast fare was pretty good, but we really enjoyed being able to eat... More

We loved this lodge! We were traveling with our two daughters (19 and 21) so we got two rooms. The rooms were beautiful, very clean. The entire lodge is so clean, grounds included. The free breakfast in the morning was the best breakfasts of our 3 week trip! Very fresh food and excellent service. Awesome hot breakfast, different every morning.... More

Clean, comfortable rooms, main lodge had an elevator, you could walk to town but traffic made safe walking difficult. Some rooms provide a limited view of MT Rushmore. Lobby was decorated in western decor. Coffee, tea and cocoa available in lobby as well as coffee machines and refrigerators in rooms. Breakfast a bit "iffy", normal buffet fare.
