This hotel/lodge is in a very scenic part of Keystone, South Dakota. If you are wondering where to stay in the Black Hills, this is it. 7 minute drive to Mount Rushmore and less than a mile to Main street Keystone where there are shops and restaurants. My kids 17 and 14 loved feeding the deer and turkeys that were... More

I didn't have a room with a view, but I got a good deal online and was more than satisfied with the room, besides, who goes there to sit in a hotel and stare out the window? I love how close this lodge is to all things touristy- Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave National Park- so... More

We were very happy staying here October 26 and 27. We would have loved to stay one more day, but they were closing for the season! The hotel is nice, the people are nice, we could see George Washington from our room. The BEST surprise was the bed. It was a very comfortable king-sized bed. The sheets felt nice. The... More

Beautiful base to sightsee from. Place is tucked away from everything. Very quiet with view of the Presidents. Breakfeast was good. The grounds superb. The people there were friendly and being the end of the season were pushed to the limits. Always answered our questions in a friendly manner. My wife and I will definitely will stays there again.

We stayed at the K Bar S Lodge in early October for two nights. It made a good base to see the Badlands and Mt. Rushmore. It is far enough from the touristy part of Keystone to be quiet and relaxing. The view of Mt. Rushmore is a bit overrated. From our deck we could see two of the heads... More

Hello tx32f, It is great to hear that you had such a good stay! Sorry to hear that the view was different than you expected, we try to inform everyone that it is a distant profile view of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We hope to see you again soon! More

The Wife and I stayed here during a 15 day road trip. Our first impression wasn't good. We arrived in town after a 2 hour drive and knew check-in was at 3:00pm but decided to stop by and see if our room was available early (12pm) so we could drop our luggage off. The front desk was manned by what... More

We love staying at the K Bar S and have stayed there about 8 times. We love the rooms and walking the grounds is always peaceful. The deer and turkey are always nice to see and the walk to town is only 3/4 miles. Breakfast is always adequate with enough to select from. We enjoy the blueberries and strawberries for... More

This is a very nice property with very comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and a great breakfast. Central location is great for all Rushmore and Black Hills exploring. We liked that is was not is the midst of the busyness of Keystone but up the road in a pretty green area. Be aware however, that only breakfast is available... More
