The room was clean and the staff was friendly,good breakfast, close to mt. Rushmore. I would stay here again. No smoking rooms, but there is a area where you can lite up. Nice indoor pool. Thet just changed from a Best Western. It can be a little hard to find, GPS send us right past the place.

The property is run down and in need of renovation. I wasn't satisfied with the cleanliness of my room and certain fixtures/amenities were missing or broken (smoke detector, hair... More

I had initially made reservations for one night at the K Bar S Lodge, but they called me ten days later to say there had been a problem with their reservations system that had allowed for overbooking, and our reservation was not valid.

Very nice facility in a beautiful setting. Other than a worn out mattress in our room, we had no complaints. We were told by the morning desk man that the mattresses were being replaced. If that is so, I would have no hesitation recommending this facility. Clean and comfortable room and nice breakfast.

great hotel. Just slightly out of the way which made it nice. Not down in downtown Keystone which is too touristy. Only minutes from Mt. Rushmore. Very comfortable hotel with a great breakfast. Fair pricing too
