5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Great place for a family vacation. The view of MT. Rushmore was good at night! All of the Staff were very helpfull. If you are planing a trip to keystone, would say that the presidents view resort is one of the best places to stay.

We were recently in SD for my daughters wedding. Her brother-in-law was suppose to have made reservations at another hotel. When we got there (there were four of us) they had no reservation for us. The woman called her husband, who worked at the Presidents View Resort, and he found us a room. When we got there he had upgraded us to a suite and charged us the regular rate. They bent over backwards to help us and we really appreciate what they did. We had a wonderful weekend and a beautiful wedding and they helped by taking the worry of where we were going to stay away. Thanks again and I would and probably will go back and stay there again.

This was my first trip to Mt Rushmore and it was an awesome sight! I hated to leave the park ... BUT then we found the President's View Resort and had a 3rd floor room with a great view of the faces!!!!! The young man at the front desk, VLAD, was very nice and helpful. The hotel looks like it is new or very recently redone. The room we had (suite 302) was large and roomy with a balcony that offered a view of the faces on Mt Rushmore quite clearly. Our two queen beds were clean and comfortable and there was a large screen TV sittting on a counter with an electric "fireplace" below it. It was relaxing to lie on the bed and just watch the flames dancing. We had a "mini-kitchen" area with a sink, microwave, and mini-fridge, all of which were very clean and in good working order. Just inside the entrance door to the room is a small area set up as a "living room" with a loveseat and a chair and another large TV. The bathroom was very clean and there was an extra bathsink just outside the bathroom. All in all the room was first class. There is a nice size indoor pool with a well kept pool area just off the hotel lobby. The lobby offers free coffee 24/7 and in the room is a carafe which you can take to the lobby and fill as you need to. There is, unfortunately, no coffee maker in the room.

The drawbacks are there is no food service of anykind offered at the hotel (except vending machine prepackaged foods) so you have to drive down the hill and into town to get any meals and although there is free coffee in the lobby available 24/7, they did not have decaf (which I have to have for health reasons).

OVERALL ... This was a great place to stay! Clean, comfortable, and with a wonderful view of the faces of Mt Rushmore from the 3rd floor suite!!!!

Room Tip: Although you pay a bit more, be sure to get a suite on the third floor and just above the area of th...

You can not get a room for $49.99 as advertised unless you have reservations and you also can't get a room with a view of Mt. Rushmore unless you book a suite. These are heavly advertised with no small print to read. The staff was not friendly or helpful so we limited our stay to one night and moved to the Powder House and enjoyed a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Dont go here.

Staff was attentive, knowledgeable, & friendly. Rooms were well equipped & clean!!! We stayed a week and wish we could have stayed longer. Don't understand bad reviews. The rooms were a touch small, but we were just there to sleep. Beautiful setting up on the mountainside & love the flags!

Hotel in transition and somewhat chaotic in registering but a great room with sitting area and fireplace. Pool & spa could be cleaner but okay. Central to all of the area attractions. Balcony very small but high enough to avoid the noise fron the highway and City. I will stay here again.
