My husband and I enjoyed our stay at K Bar S Lodge so much, we booked a room for our return trip home. The Lodge is tranquil and relaxing with beautiful scenery. The balcony of our room had a side view of Mount Rushmore. It was amazing. The Lodge is only a couple of minutes drive from Keystone, but without... More

My husband, grandson and I recently took a quick trip to the Black Hills so our grandson could visit Bear Country again (he loves Bear Country). I decided to look for a place outside of Rapid City this time and read the reviews for the K Bar S Lodge and decided to give the place a try. I got a... More

We saw the great reviews here and called up to get a room for the 4th of July weekend. We were fortunate to get the only room open and that was only due to a last minute cancellation. After having stayed there I can totally see why they book up so quickly! This cozy yet very well appointed lodge is... More

We recently visited Mount Rushmore and stayed one night at the K Bar S Lodge. I made the reservation based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. The lodge is located just a short walking distance from Keystone town and around the block from the steam train ride. I booked a queen room with a profile view of Mount Rushmore. You... More

We were there for two nights. Got a room overlooking Mount Rushmore. View was a little distant, but stunning at night when it was lit up. The lodge is less than a mile from the busy town of Keystone, but you would think it was in the middle of nowhere when you arrive. Saw lots of wildlife here. I think... More

The K Bar S Lodge is a beautiful hotel/resort nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota, very near Mount Rushmore. Surrounded by a pine forest, it was a quiet, wonderful place to stay! The front desk staff was helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding area.

We stayed at the K Bar S Lodge last week and loved it. The grounds are beautiful. Tucked away from the crazy main street of Keystone with a fabulous profile view of Mt. Rushmore. Took advantage of the free laundry and one dollar soap available at the front desk. Breakfast facility is beautiful. Room very clean and comfortable. Front desk... More

We stayed at this hotel basically because it is about 3 miles from Mount Rushmore. The room was large with a comfortable chair and two queen beds. The room was clean and very nicely decorated, breakfast in the morning and the location of the hotel is very scenic surrounded by woods. The only flaw was the shower. When you took... More

Absolutely fabulous lodge in Keystone, South Dakota. Perfect location to visit Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Buffalo Safari, Deadwood, Hill City and more. The breakfast is excellent in a glass enclosed room with a breathtaking view. If you have the pleasure to be greeted by JORDAN -- he will acquaint you thoroughly with the property and take care of your... More
