I got a call one random Saturday night that my son was road tripping to Mount Rushmore - solo - from Colorado State University, where I thought he was placidly studying. As you might expect, he did not bring money or other necessities, and planned to sleep in his car in the park. I got on Trip Advisor and looked...

Around the edge of the door was poorly insulated (you could see around the cracks on the sides of the door to the outside) so the room was very cold when I stayed there. You can turn on the heater but it's so loud then it's hard to sleep! The beds and the construction of the room itself was quite...

This is a small motel that is clean and very reasonably priced. There was only one person on staff, but he did a good job of handling things. He was very friendly and accommodating. We needed ice for our cooler, and he delivered it to our room. We could not get the World Series on the television, and he worked...

We wanted a cheap but comfortable place to stay for 1 night near Mt.Rushmore and this place fitted the bill perfectly. We were slightly apprehensive after reading some bad reviews here, but it was perfectly fine. The rooms are a bit basic, but have some nice little touches to brighten them up, bed was comfortable and it was clean. It's...

We stayed here during our visit to Mt. Rushmore. Price was unbeatable and review were good so that is why we picked this motel. We got our money worth. Staff was so friendly and helpful like 4-5 star hotel. Breakfast was good. Overall good experience.

Breakfast was very basic. The carpet in the room was very dirty and the TV reception was terrible - on closer inspection the aerial was barely connected into the wall. I managed to sort it myself. Don't think I got one of the new rooms.

The new owners were very nice and accommodating. You could smell fresh cut wood in the newly remodeled rooms. We stayed two nights and were actually sad about leaving. This place had the best prices and is right in the center of everything Keystone and the surrounding area has to offer. There are picnic tables behind the motel next to...

The 5 stars says it all it all hard work of our employees to make comfortable stay for all the guest and such a nice rating and description for each of the things provided for the motel is feels like cherry topping thank you so much for appreciating our efforts.

We were taking a quick trip on a tight budget. We wanted someplace cheaply priced where we could sleep and shower. This place fit those needs. It appeared that the room we had was recently updated. The flooring looked new as well as the paint on the walls. We had a king sized bed that I thought was reasonably comfortable....
