We stayed in one of the "motel" rooms for 3 nights. They have done a great job of keeping this older property up to date. Our room was really clean and had plenty of space. Pool was also nice. We were really excited to eat at the restaurant. The prime rib was ok. The salad that came with the meal... More

It wasn't our honeymoon, but very glad we got the honeymoon cabin. It was awesome! It sits high on a hillside near the top of the complex of cabins and so is very private. It was very clean and spacious with a nice view and nice furnishings. Bed was super comfy. Best part: hot tub on the large, covered deck,... More

After doing many online searches for cabins in the Black Hills, we chose Powder House Lodge, and we're very glad we did. Our unit (#25) was a standalone cabin with a king sized bed and newly remodeled bathroom. The cabin was decorated nicely, comfortable, clean and modern. Powder House is located literally minutes from downtown Keystone, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse,... More

We stayed in one of the six plex cabins about the size of a normal hotel room not a suite. Two queen beds, and a sofa sleeper. With 3 adults and 2 kids,, quarters were a very tight when sofa bed was down. It was good we only used it for sleeping. We stayed for 6 days. It is what... More

We stayed at Powder House Lodge this week and were very happy with our stay. The staff was excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our cabin was part of a 6 plex cabin and right off highway, so traffic can be noisy at times, but all cabins in this area are built into the mountainside next to the highway... More

The rooms are adequate but nothing special. The most expensive thing in Keystone is the food and I felt that grills were intentionally not installed so that you would go to their expensive restaurant. Due to their location next to the highway, it was also very noisy. Wouldn't stay there again.

We stayed when we traveled to Mount Rushmore. It's located very close to the monument which was very nice. We couldn't figure out how to put the air conditioner on an automatic temperature so it turned off during the night and didn't turn back on. It was a little warm in the morning because of this but not too bad... More

Good news is it is very close to Mt. Rushmore, and reasonably quiet. They have a restaurant on premise, nothing to get excited about but fine, and they did have a reasonable selection of wine that you could buy by the bottle and take back to your room if you want. A nice feature, not sure of pricing since we... More

We stayed here for three nights during a trip to Keystone. We were in the motel rooms which were up a dirt/gravel road from the lobby and restaurant. The room was a bit dated, but clean. My wife did spot a couple of silverfish in the bathroom, but they didn't seem out of control. It was a long walk to... More

We recently had 11 cabins at Powderhouse Lodge for a family reunion. The lodge is located in a perfect location, close to many activities. The cabins are very modern and very nice. The restaurant is also very good and very convenient. I cannot say enough about the friendly staff and how hard they work. Our rooms were spotless every day... More
