The hotel rooms are fine, but the outside area is what makes this place fun. Wildlife, right in the hills with a view of Mt. Rushmore, firepit. Because of covid, the breakfast was not buffet-style, and the food was just ok, but during this time, with hotels just re-opening, we didn’t expect perfection. We would definitely stay here again

We can not say enough about K Bar S Lodge. Everything about it was amazing. From making the reservation over the phone with Byron to arriving and being greeted by front desk staff, quality was excellent. They had just opened after being shut down from covid19 and everything was immaculate and clean. Staff took extra measures to ensure cleanliness and safety. Every room has a balcony with table and chairs, fridge and was nicely decorated. Our room actually had a view of george Washington's profile on mt rushmore. That was a nice treat and surprise. Brittany in the dining hall owned the breakfast process. We stood 6 ft apart in line, ordered our food then they delivered it to our table which was on a beautiful deck. We could reorder food as often as desired and was always brought to us with a smile and servant attitude. When people left their tables Brittany was quick to clean them. My only complaint was the eggs. They were a weird texture and we didn't care for them. The bacon was delicious! The location is walking distance to the main street of keystone which has a number of restaurants and shops. Hiking trails are nearby and only 15 minutes from Mt. Rushmore. Highly recommend.

i traveled thru the Black Hills with my family and had to make a reservation change. The desk clerk said only the manager could do that. I called and left a message for the manager to call me back at least 10 times. Manager never called me back. I ended up not staying there and losing my room charge.

Response from Kyle Olson, General Manager at K Bar S Lodge
Responded Apr 20, 2020
Hello, I am so sorry to hear about your experience. I am not sure why the front desk clerk wouldn't have been able to change your reservation. I am assuming that the reservation was an advanced purchase non-modifiable room made through a third party booking site, this would be the only reason that they might have trouble making that change in the system. Even in the case of an advanced purchase we always work with people to move the reservation to another date as long as we have availability. I would greatly appreciate if you could email me at kyle@kbarslodge.com so that I can make this right for you. I would love to hear more details about the situation and which of our managers you were leaving messages for, so I can make sure nothing like this ever happens again. I know that we can make this right for you, and give you the true K Bar S experience the next time that you travel through the Black Hills. Thank you!

Stayed here for 2 nights on our road trip. Set in a lovely peaceful location just 2 minutes’ drive from Keystone and 5 minutes’ drive from the awesome Mount Rushmore. The lodge is made up of several buildings all with ample parking. Our room was a good size, very clean with modern décor. There was a hot tub and balcony seating area for each building with views of Mount Rushmore in the distance. Breakfast is in a separate gazebo style building and was one of the best breakfasts we had on our trip. Everything you could possibly want, hot and cold. We enjoyed a late afternoon drink from the bar sat on the terrace overlooking the lovely grounds. I don’t think we could have picked a better place to stay for our visit to Mount Rushmore.
