Booked a 5 day stay at the K Bar S Lodge, used this as our base for touring the various sites in this area. Look for deals offered through whichever discount site you prefer as it can be rather expensive during peak season, especially compared to some other hotels in the town surrounding Mt Rushmore. Room was nice, clean, comfortable,... More

Very clean hotel. Close to Keystone but surrounded by forest. The room contained a k-cup coffee maker, hairdryer, and a nice size refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was really good! They have just about anything you would want to eat. They even set out strawberry toppings and whip cream for waffles. I would stay here again and highly... More

Keystone is a busy touristy place, so we were happy to find the K Bar S Ranch tucked into the pines and just far enough off the beaten path to have some space. We had a fantastic view of the profile of Mount Rushmore presidents---that's a wild view to wake up to! People were very friendly--good service. We weren't in... More

Top notch property! Clean, friendly, great sleep...excellent location for Mt. Rushmore. Would have liked to stay another day and explore some more. Cookies in lobby which kids loved, breakfast in a beautiful facility, outside fireplace in evening.

This is a very nice hotel. The service was great, the rooms and building were very nice, and the location was unbeatable. It is essentially the first building outside Keystone-proper, but secluded by the river/rocks/trees; we could not hear the ruckus of town at all but were close enough to walk to dinner! A little pricey, but worth the splurge... More

Resort is spacious and gorgeous - hidden in at the bottom of a mountain away from the touristy Keystone. Our room was good - your typical hotel room. Beds were comfortable, room was spotless. We faced the side of a mountain but the other side had a balcony that faced Mt. Rushmore. There is a jacuzzi for each building. Nice... More

We stayed here one night at the end of our tour before flying out of Rapid City. The lobby is very nice with an outdoor deck to sit and relax, taking in the side view of Mount Rushmore. The service is friendly and the rooms are clean. We had two rooms in the main building. One room has a wonderful... More

If traveling to Mount Rushmore, this is an ideal place to stay. Beautiful lodge with a view of George Washington's face, rooms with an outdoor sitting area, comfy beds and space inside the room. Breakfast is available each morning, with a varied selection greater than other stops on our trip. Being at the K Bar S Lodge is very convenient... More

We spent a week here while part of a Road Scholar group touring Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, Deadwood, the Black Hills, and the Badlands, among other local attractions. All of the great things you see in these reviews are accurate: beautiful park like grounds; view of George Washington's profile from the back lawn; friendly and helpful staff. The rooms... More

We have 1 more night here and wish we could leave but we are stuck. I suppose because we are using a AAA discount we were given the worst room in the place but still we paid $170 before taxes for the room. Most rooms have balconies. Our room has 1 large and 1 small skylight with no other exterior... More
