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

Saw a few deer very nearby while eating from large variety of hot breakfast buffet. Lovely area!. Only a couple blocks off'the strtip' but feels like a different,and peaceful, world. Balcony had view of monument also. Very clean, comfy beds, still close to everything. Great find!

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.

We just spent 2 nights at the K Bar. We planned our July 2015 Black Hills trip in May so we could only get a room there for 2 nights. We loved seeing Mt Rushmore from the hotel lobby when we checked in - payoff for a long day's journey! Rooms are clean and updated, staff super friendly and the... More

Almost everything about this place was wonderful. Scenery was beautiful. Room was very clean and tastefully decorated. It was a quiet place. The only negative was breakfast. Meat was not served. Omelet and potatoes were not very good. Did not go to second day breakfast.

This is a beautiful lodge, with a huge green lawn surrounded by trees and a nearby stream. Many rooms have a view of Mt. Rushmore (you can see Washington's profile), which is cool to see. I would call to make a reservation though rather than making the reservation online. I made my reservation online and selected an "efficiency" room. I... More

Good location to Keystone and great view of Washington at Mt Rushmore, but do not expect anything else. Grumpy older lady to check in (later younger staff was more friendly). Processed "free" breakfast in the morning. The building that has breakfast closes and expect no services out of that building after that... the building in the pic just sat empty.... More

Hello, We are very sorry to hear about the experience that you had while staying with us. It's unfortunate to hear that you were not satisfied with our continental breakfast in the morning, along with the fresh made waffles and other typical items offered by most continental breakfasts, we also offer two hot dishes that rotate every day, whether it...
