I stayed here with my family while in town for a wedding. We had several rooms between all of us. Every single room type was exceptional! Especially the suites. Beautiful, rustic, even romantic. AND hotel has an indoor heated pool and hot tub! AND AMAZING BREAKFAST. Thank you, for providing an unforgettable vacation. PS. be sure to visit "Bear Country"...

We found this place to be very close to Mt. Rushmore, and booked it for two nights. It is an older place, rather rustic -- but very clean and quiet. Our room had extremely comfortable beds with good bedding. There was a microwave and small fridge, and free wi-fi. The breakfast was free but kind of disappointing...they could try a...

We reviewed places to stay in Keystone on trip Advisor an this was in our wheelhouse. If you want cleanliness and free breakfast, pool and a family suite this checks all your buckets. The front desk was awesome. From check in to when my daughter needed colored pencils for her 9th grade assignment it was bar none. They even found...

Let me start by saying, everything I read about lodging in Keystone said the options were few and the quality left much to be desired, so I had concerns when I finally settled on Rushmore Express Inn & Suites. Needless to say, my concerns quickly disappeared upon arriving. We checked in and found it to be very busy as many...

The suite is excellent! I would improve on TV channels because all they have is Fox news the. History Channel, a few Cartoons, and KELO land. No QVC. The suite has a lovely sitting area, king bed, phoney fireplace, and a top notch bathroom with heated floors. Tv in bedroom. The nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. The free...

I cannot tell you all how much I recommend this hotel. It was tucked in behind the main street in a really quiet little nook. When we opened the door to our suite my husband and I both said, "Wow!" The room was enormous, with a beautiful living room with a fireplace. Then you venture on deeper into the room...

Great suites. We stayed in 231 right beside the elevator and couldn't even tell. The front desk staff are helpful, nice and available to answer questions. No hot breakfast but within walking distance. Only a short drive to Mt Rushmore. The suites are huge. Ours had a fireplace, dining room, mini fridge and microwave. 2 queens and a double sleeper...
