The Good: Great location, clean and updated rooms/public spaces, price, pet-friendly, pretty good breakfast. The Bad (this list is longer): Upon check in, I was given my key, hauled my stuff, family and dog up to the third floor and opened the door to find an occupied room. Lucky for me, the occupants were out. Lucky for the people in... More

Greetings... Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts! We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Almost all of these items have been addressed. The pool temp is back to a comfy 86 degrees and the work on the back part of the grounds is commencing today. Thank you for the concern. I apologize re. being assigned to... More

Facilities and location were great. Rooms were clean and well kept. Service from the front desk was uneven -- some people were great, others really lousy. The two largest complaints: (1) the pool was cold. Freezing cold, almost unusable, and (2) the fact that at least once per day, our key cards stopped working and we had to go to... More

Hotel itself was ok and had a good breakfast. Our issue was we had prepaid for our stay when making the reservation in March. Stayed there mid-June. On checking in, told them we had prepaid. On checking out, they had charged us for our stay again. Argued with staff but told they had no refund authority and would tell the... More

This hotel cost the most and was the worst. The room was very small, carpet was very old and matted, blanket on our bed was old and hard and had hair on it and also had holes. You could not see the presidents from the hotels except the top of Wasington's head. Very disappointed. Will not recommend it to anyone.

WRONG HOTEL! Greetings....This review was obviously meant for the Presidents View Hotel. I have reported this to our friends at Trip Advisor. We have a wonderful location on Black Hills, but do not offer a view of Mt. Rushmore. Thank you More

Hot tub didn't work. No towels at pool. TV in workout room didn't turn on. Could hear the dog barking next door as well as the washer and dryer running all night. Couldn't get through one shower with out turning cold. Could only get cartoon network on our tv. Couldn't get Internet service anywhere in the hotel. Our card stopped... More

We booked and paid for our room in advance on May 25th, charges posted on May 27, 2015. Our reservation check in was for June 21, 2015. I had 2 confirmation emails from gm@lodgeatmountrushmore.com with a reservation number. Our family arrived on Father's day to check in on June 21, 2015 and waited while the receptionist was busy on the... More

Greetings..Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts. Obviously this should never have happened. I apologize for not having your room available and ready to go. Looks like there actually was room assigned and that it was inadvertently marked as unavailable. I course I have taken measures re. this situation. I am glad were were at least able to... More

The Lodge is situated "uphill" from Keystone and is welll situated for anyone wishing to visit all Black Hills attractions. The staff was extremely helpful, giving spot-on advice about restaurants, and providing invaluable local insight. The room was very spacious, clean, and well maintained. It featured separate bedroom and sitting areas. The only downside was the lack of a vent... More

We stayed June 6 and 7, 2015. We were in a suite, #300, it was spacious and the toilet flushed. The TV did not work, the sink was plugged, we could not turn the tub faucet off (it ran water for the 2 days we were there) no conserving our resources there! The hot tub did not work. The shower...

Stayed in this hotel in early May and there were good and bad points. The good: the room was nice and clean. The pool and hot tub were fine. The location is good as well. It is a short drive into downtown Keystone and a short drive to Mount Rushmore. It's also one of the first hotels you come to... More
