There are many other better valued options in the immediate area. Dean and Joanell (sp?) are the WORST customer service persons EVER! Not only was Joanell not pleasant over the phone as I had to change my, she was directly and overtly RUDE. The same was true when I checked in. Granted, they are both old and are over their... More

My family stayed here for two nights in July 2014. This hotel is run by two older people. This hotel is out of date and dirty. There are a lot of nicer places to stay in Keystone, South Dakota. The water in our shower barley came out and the water was hard. The air conditioner was loud and didn't work... More

Very nice place to stay! Not to expensive. Close to everything (walking distance)! And the breakfast was great for it being continental. And right across from a coffee shop. Would stay there again for sure!

This hotel/motel was a great find. Right on the edge of town and in a great location. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The morning complimentary breakfast also was good. Everything was spotless and the owners are very attentive. The only drawback was that the bathrooms are very small.

We stayed 2 July 2014 and we enjoyed the stay. It was clean, staff was wonderful. I have to say Roosevelt Inn was clean, the fridge was cold, shower and toilet worked. Mt Rushmore was just a hop and skip away. This is a clean hotel and the staff is very friendly. Price is no more expensive than any other... More

We stayed one night at the Roosevelt Inn in one of the Loft Suites. The bathroom was tiny. However, the room was clean, convenient and a short drive to Mount Rushmore and other attractions. A continental breakfast was also offered in the morning.

We spent one night here during a weekend excursion to Mount Rushmore. Location being everything, you cannot beat the Roosevelt Inn in Keystone SD. I would not recommend staying in Custer, it's just too far away from the Monument. The Roosevelt has a quaint old fashion feel to it which isn't bad. It is an older property. The elevator was...

The Roosevelt Inn offers a convenient location for a decent price, especially when compared to other hotels in the area. It was a short drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Custer State Park. There were quite a few restaurants and shops within walking distance. A continental breakfast every morning offered a variety of breakfast food items in the... More
