Our room was clean, had two comfortable queen beds and had a western theme which was aprapoe for the area. Our deck overlooked the parking lot but in the distance we had a nice view of the green area and Mt Rushmore. The lodge is surrounded by nature, woods and wildlife. Its also a short drive to downtown Keystone. The... More

The K Bar S Lodge was a perfect location for a visit to Mt. Rushmore. Good size, clean rooms & helpful staff. Set back a ways from the touristy main street in Keystone so very quiet in a forest setting. Breakfast is included and is well done every morning. Can be a bit crowded at times when tour bus groups... More

Extremely nice facility-clean,cozy and a great location. The rooms were very nice and service was terrific. Includes breakfast. We only stayed 1 night. I wished a planned for an additional night or 2. Only warning- if you arrive late ( after sunset), the entrance is a bit hard to find. Lodge is tucked in woods a bit. Could use a... More

It was May had snow so no TV and internet. Breakfast could of been a little better for the price we paid. If you want a room that face Mount Rushmore it is a added charge per night. You can sit out sir and see the view.

We were so looking forward to this stay and booked 9 months prior. Unfortunately it let us down but we have had positive communications from the general manager since the event. All I would say that be very aware the queen rooms on the Ascend web site which this property is a part of will have attic style skylights and... More

Unlike most hotels in Keystone, this hotel is set just far enough from the main strip of franchise hotels and tourist gift shops. Set in a nice little valley, these well kept accommodations are definitely a good option. The room was nice and clean, the staff was very friendly and the grounds were well kept. The only downside was the... More

I believe we got the best service ever on all our travels here. All the staff we encountered truly went above and beyond to make our stay a good one. We accidentally left something behind, returned a half hour later and the cleaning personnel had already returned it to the front desk. Their "continental" breakfast includes waffles, eggs and a...

This facility is located outside of Keystone with a view of the profile of George Washington likeness at Mount Rushmore. the Rooms are clean the ground are immaculate, and the breakfast is well done. Very pleasant setting and the staff is very helpful.

I really enjoyed my very brief stay here. After a LONG day of flying/driving I was greeted warmly by the staff. The room was clean and as described, breakfast was ample and served in a beautiful room offering large windows with forest views. Mr. Rushmore could be glimpsed from various balconies and the location was secluded in the forest, yet... More
