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

My wife and I on a whim decided to take a trip to Mount Rushmore. We knew nothing about the area and went by the reviews we seen here. The pictures on the site doesn't due it justice. The main Lodge is great. Clean and rustic looking. The staff friendly and courteous. Check in took only five minuts. The room... 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

Our recent stay at the K Bar S lodge was a wonderful experience. The lodge is nestled in the pines with a beautiful view of the Mount Rushmore sculptures. Grounds are beautifully laid out and maintained. While we were there a wedding party was enjoying their surroundings. Not sure if the ceremony was held there but it certainly could have... More

Great hotel- very nice staff, room with view of Mt. Rushmore , lots of beautiful grounds and woods surrounding the hotel. Free breakfast was solid. Very convenient to Mt. Rushmore . Town was largely closed but Rubys was good food and reasonable. Good time to visit as the park was quiet.

Thanks to our fellow TripAdvisors we selected the K Bar S and it was outstanding in all areas. We were in the main lodge on the ground floor. Very nice facility and warm, friendly staff that make you feel welcome. Very quiet, very clean, and well maintained. Good breakfast. Highly recommend it.
