We stayed here two nights to visit the Mt. Rushmore area (family of four, daughters are 10 and 12), and my kids thought it was the best of seven hotels we stayed at during a long western road trip this August. It was great, because: 1) The rooms were very clean, if a bit small. Bathroom space was good, which... More

This is a must if you are visiting the area. Just minutes from downtown Keystone and Mount Rushmore, but secluded. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great soaps, lotions and top quality towels. Patio with chairs to sit and enjoy the peaceful setting. Don't think for a minute this is a stuffy, old cabin type lodge. All up to date and... More

Rooms were nice and clean. We stayed with a group traveling by bus to visit Mt Rushmore and could see the mountain from the parking lot. K Bar S provided a dinner buffet for our group and it was delicious. They also had a breakfast that was much better than other continental breakfasts found at other hotels. They even had... More

I wish we had a whole week to spend here. Our view from our room this morning as the sun rose was the side of Mount Rushmore. Last night we sat by the fire, roasting marshmallows and enjoying the scenery and ambiance. You are only a half mile from Keystone where you can enjoy dinner and do some shopping. 3... More

We were on a Road Scholar Tour. We stayed here for a week. It is a beautiful property. Easy walk into town. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in town. There is a turkey that hangs out around the lodge kitchen at breakfast. (food is only served to tour groups as far as I know). A deer often visited during breakfast.... More

While we've known of the K Bar S for years, this was our first visit, and shame on us. If you visit the Black Hills once, or often, treat yourself to one of the most relaxing spots in the area. Wonderful rooms, quiet, woodsy, and as much excitement as you need.........if you want it. We chose a room with a... More

Stayed for 1 night in a mountain view room whilst visiting Mount Rushmore. Firstly the location is fantastic! So close to Mount Rushmore itself, we went all day and then went back for the evening light show. The view from our room was lovely as we requested a partial view. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. A lovely balcony... More

Spent one night here during our visit to Mount Rushmore. Hotel was situated at a great location and we paid extra and were able to get a profile view of Mount Rushmore. Room was cramped considering the price paid and with no WiFi connection even though the hotel had advertised it. When I went to the front desk to ask... More

Nice resort. Rooms great. Loved the Keurig in room. I would suggest more than 2 creams and sugars. WiFi SUCKED!!! Tried in room, out on patio and main lodge nothing!!! Was told by staff it can be spotty. Breakfast super nice! 10 min from Mt Rushmore. Keystone is a cute town.

Loved this lodge!! It's not big or fancy but it was clean and felt homey. The staff was accomodating and our every need was met. It sets in the hills with nothing else around it and we could sit on our little patio and just enjoy Thomas Jefferson's profile!! Breakfast was GREAT and the dining room was big enough to... More
