This is an older style hotel but our balcony had a great view of the Black Hills at sunset. It was the perfect way to relax after a long day of being a tourist! The service was great, but the beds were a little hard. It was great to have a fridge in the room to keep the food from... More

Stayed 4 nights. Close to all attractions. Nice room with balcony, micro, refrigerator, coffee maker. Continental breakfast was a nice surprise. Pool area needs a little maintenance. No late check in, desk closes at 10:30. Elevator also shuts down. Everyone was very friendly. Plan to bring food, drinks on your excursions.

Thanks for the kind comments. As you and other reviewers point out, the pool has "issues" and it now has been closed for repairs. The winter of 2013/2014 started with an early, sudden and deep freeze that resulted in lots of damage in Western South Dakota. This caused numerous pipes in our pool to freeze and we were not able...

Stayed five nights. Location is perfect. Close to Main Street of Keystone, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Needles Highway, etc. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Continental breakfast is adequate. Enjoyed our visit to the Badlands.

Dean B, Owner at Roosevelt Inn, responded to this review

Sorry. I didn't mean to be deceptive. Most people who come from Devil's Tower to Keystone come either via I-90 or US385. The route you took was via Newcastle, Wyoming, which is somewhat longer. Had I known you were going that way, I could have warned you about the construction. I also ride and the route and I usually take... More

This was the first hotel my husband and I stayed in on a 5 week USA tour. And we were very pleased with the place! The reservation information was clearly defined (one night's stay charge upon reservation), the hotel was clean, people were friendly, breakfast was good, and the view from our room unbelievably beautiful, even with lots of snow!...

We stayed here one night on our way through the area. We stayed at a few other hotels before heading to Yellowstone. The pool was really dirty and had trash in it and it's indoors so all the debris was unusual. The biggest issue I had was black beetles that came out no kidding at 10:30p just as we were... More

As other reviews of other properties have observed, Keystone businesses have been dealing with lots of bugs this year. Unfortunately a few days before you arrived swarms of small black beetles passed through this area and invaded virtually all homes and commercial properties. They were here for only a few days then left. This is not an on-going problem for... More

This is one of the closest hotels to Mt. Rushmore and made it convenient for visiting the landmark both during the day and for the lighting ceremony. The family suite was convenient for a family of 5 - we could put the 3 kids to bed and still have some room/privacy to plan the next day's adventure. This is an... More

The location of this hotel is the first one in when you come from Mt. Rushmore, so the location is pretty good. It is within walking distance to many things including a small adventure park across the street, restaurants, shopping and the Presidential Wax Museum. After reading the reviews, we opted for the slightly larger room with an elevated sitting... More

This hotel is old, not maintained, no hot water for showers, air conditioner did not function and the worst hotel we stayed in during our 18 day trip. It did not help we were there during the Sturgis Motorcycle rally. A complete disappointment!

Dean B, Owner at Roosevelt Inn, responded to this review

Although we regret that this guest believes she has a less than satisfactory experience, we have been unable to replicate the problems she mentioned. No other guests complained about hot water issues and to our knowledge no air conditioners have malfunctioned. Occasionally guests believe the air conditioners have malfunctioned because on some units a setting of 10 is the highest... More
