We stayed at HSR last summer during trip a trip to the Mt. Rushmore area and were disappointed. The cabins themselves are squeezed closely together along a narrow road carved into the hillside. See pictures below for the view we had. The cabins we stayed in were not charming in the least. Picture a 70s-era TV bolted to the ceiling... More

Really sorry you did not like the rustic cabin. Why did you wait so long to write a review? Our front desk is manned from noon till nine daily. We have never advertised a swimming pool, so you knew that there wasn't one when you booked the cabin. Some folks are much happier in a motel with a pool. Perhaps... More

We stayed early September 2013. This is not 5* but you are not paying 5* price, but it is good value 2*. The cabin was clean, the facilities worked and the site was clean and quite. If you want somewhere to use as a base while touring the area, and all you are going to do is use it to... More

We chose this resort as a home base for touring all of the Black Hills for over a week and that was a good choice. You can't beat the discount of $55 a night for a bed and shower, so that was the second plus. (Although you realize you usually get what you pay for.) Housekeeping was not included; they... More

Really cute cabin with two separate rooms and adjoining bath, and mini kitchen. Large front deck with plenty of room for foldout chairs and room to grill. The staff are super! The location just north of Keystone was perfect for visiting all that the area has to offer. The owner says they will be adding a few more cabins next... More

Stayed here on recent road trip with my daughter on our way to take her to her new job in Denver. I had never visited the Black Hills and was a little concerned with the description of Keystone as being very touristy. We only had a couple of days on our detour through the Black Hills from Chicago and after... More

Ended up here at last minute because our hotel messed up our reservation. The cabin had more amenities that we expected: 2 toilets and sinks, tv in one room, writing table in the other. Nice setting in the pines, but fairly close to the main highway.

We just needed a simple clean roof over our heads. That is what we got. Ask for ice at the restaurant. Being so close to Sturgis there are reminders not to use the towels to clean your motorcycle. Actually this is more of a "3.5."

Found this place via the internet with just a week or so to go before our SD trip in August. Hard to find a hotel that will suit a family of 6 but this worked well. Quiet, rustic cabins worked well for a family who doesn't camp but wanted something more like camping. We stayed in a duplex cabin and... More

Clean, quiet. Friendly when checking in. Housekeeping was wonderful. We stayed in a duplex cabin. I was worried as I had read reviews about the walls being paper thin, but if that is the case, we had really quiet neighbors. Sitting outside one morning with a cup of coffee, I very much enjoyed a turkey admiring himself in a chrome... More
