Very picturesque views of the land and wildlife from the property and in the morning from breakfast room. Loved the crackling bonfires at night. The room was clean and spacious and we enjoyed a very tasty buffet breakfast. The staff we encountered was very friendly. You won't be disappointed.

We enjoyed our three nights at this lodge with its large grounds and profile view of President Washington on Mt. Rushmore. Less than a mile to Keystone and once there you can walk to restaurants and shops. The rooms were very comfortable with a small private balcony. Parking could be a problem if there is a wedding or event. Breakfast... More

We prefer to stay at unique, non-chain hotels whenever possible, and K Bar S Lodge really fit the bill. Its location couldn't be beat... it's quiet and tucked away in the woods away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, but it features views of Mount Rushmore and is close enough to the main roads to make the...

We enjoyed our three nights at this lodge with its large grounds and profile view of President Washington on Mt. Rushmore. Away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but only a five minute car ride and walkable to restaurants in Keystone. Parking was an issue the day we arrived (a Saturday) as there was a wedding and many... More

On the plus side, our two-queen accessible room had a great shower and comfy bed. Taylor, our front desk clerk, was awesome, and the hotel served a super breakfast in their gazebo. There was a frig in our room, but no microwave. On the other hand, the WiFi was terrible, there weren't enough outlets for electronic devices, and the shower... More

This was a very nice hotel. The rooms were clean. This location is beautiful. Our room had a side of Mount Rushmore and the beautiful Black Hills. The breakfast was very good. It should be noted that this hotel does not have a swimming pool. Parking was easy. Located close to Keystone which is a quaint and cute town.

We weren't sure what to expect from the hotels around Keystone, but once we got there, I think we picked the best one around. It was updated, very clean and had everything we needed. We even had a view of Mt Rushmore!

We picked this lodge because the reviews were positive and it was away from the the main tourist area. I read that it was difficult to find, but we had no problem finding it. It has a long driveway that will take you past one of three lodges. The lobby is located in the middle lodge. Stay to the right... More

We spent 3 nights, mid-October, at the K Bar S and came away feeling we'd found the best place to stay, judging by the other motels/hotels in the area. Nearing the end of the season, much was closed in the area, which we actually thought was a huge plus: minimal crowds, lower prices. The K Bar S Lodge is lovely... More
