We stayed 1 night while doing a road trip from Rapid City to Montana to visit several of the National Parks and other attractions in the area. The town is touristy and did not appeal to us. K Bar S Lodge is a short distance from the town nestled in the woods. Very quiet and peaceful with deer running thru... More

In the Keystone area, there is K Bar S, and then there are all the rest of the hotels and motels. No comparison. This hotel is ranked Number 1 for very good reason. The location and setting are perfect. It is best not to be located in the tacky Coney Island/tourist trap setting of Keystone. Fortunately, the entrance to K... More

Our stay at the K Bar S Lodge was wonderful. Beautiful property, wonderful staff, and the view was lovely. Very quiet, we enjoyed watching the chipmunks and deer. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We definitely recommend the K Bar S!

K Bar S Lodge is a well maintained, quiet hotel located off the main road in Keystone. The lobby and room were great, the view (which does cost a little bit more - $20 at the time of writing) of George Washington on Mt. Rushmore is pretty cool, and the grounds are kept well. The breakfast, which is included, is... More

The setting of the hotel is wonderful, we saw quite a few animals while we were there: marmots, deers, chipmuncks and squirrels. The rooms are large, we were on the 2nd floor and had a balcony with a view of Mt Rushmore (profile of G. Washington). The free breakfast is also good and they have gluten free bread if you... More

It is situated in a quite mountain setting a short distance away from the main street of Keystone. The property consists of a main lodge building, four 2 story buildings with hotel rooms, a separate building where the complimentary... More

We stayed here on our way out of Mount Rushmore and it was more than expected. The Lodge is very charming and has a beautiful view of the Black Hills, an inviting balcony area, outdoor space and indoor sitting area that feels like your own luxury log cabin with complimentary coffee and tea all night. Additionally, they have commentary laundry... More

So other than having no WIFI in the rooms the hotel is lovely. Breakfast is included and plenty for us. We had a room looking out over the mountains and we could clearly see Mount Rushmore. Stunning setting and stunning hotel!

I liked the K Bar but, for $330 a night there's a few things they could improve upon. the location is excellent - I could actuall see George Washington's face from my balcony. When we checked in, I asked for restaurant reccomendations - but they didn't offer to make a reservation for us. When asked id we could get some... More
