Just a minute from everything in downtown Keystone with amazing restaurants in 5 mins drive or less! Friendly staff, but breakfast isn't worth them even advertising - not fresh and cheap cheap cheap foods. Very spacious rooms and loved the hand sanitizer, lotion and soap on the wall. They also have shower gel and shampoo/conditioner dispenser inside the shower on... More

The rooms are nothing special, but they are a bit large. It's an older building and the rooms we were in needed some updating, but they are definitely larger than a typical motel room. The breakfast was fresh, with the manager/owner cooking and bringing out fresh food constantly. The beds were comfortable, so no complaints.

We were looking for a decent place right by Mt. Rushmore that wouldn't break the bank. I was under the impression we would be right there and have somewhat of a view of Rushmore but I was wrong. You don't have to stay in Keystone to enjoy the area or Mt Rushmore. There are several little towns around with plenty... More

Place is definitely run down,but still a little gem.The manager can't do enough to make you stay an enjoyable experience.Breakfast is basic but enough to start the day.Great location.Prices are very reasonable.Would definitely recommend as long as 5 star is all you are used to.

Stayed here on a cross country road trip. Would actually advise not staying in Keystone unless you are going to lighting ceremony at MountRushmore, which we were. The town is very touristy and tacky like they are trying to reproduce Vegas in SD Reception was fine but it had poured rain and the parking spots were very muddy and with... More

Great location. Pretty ran down place. Clean, but everything is outdated. Wifi is spotty especially at night. TV has terrible picture due to dish. Breakfast is ok. Swimming pool outside was closed and out of order. And that was a huge selling point for us:( , our room was on the second level and had a nice wooden deck. I... More

Very basic but clean, staff is very nice and works very hard to make your stay comfortable. Very close to Mount Rushmore. Great value for the area. Good breakfast, close to restaurants and gift shops. No elevators but staff is helpful in carrying baggage.

Our family found this place to be wonderful. Very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable with soft sheets. People were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to be accommodating. They even helped carry our bags in. The breakfast was very good and there was a nice assortment. We highly recommend it. Don't be fooled by the... More

After reading all of the great reviews we decided to stay at the Brookside. Unfortunately our experience did not match the raving reviews of other travelers. We arrived an hour early and were coldly told no check ins till three. The beds were comfortable but many upgrades are still needed in the room. Loose door handles, leaky toilets, and rusted...

When we pulled into the Brookside, the manager was waiting up for our late check in. Getting out room cards was very fast, and much to my surprise for a small motel, the manager insisted on carrying as much of our luggage as possible. The poor guy was running up and down steps as fast as he could to make... More
