We were very pleasantly surprised by the lodge and its location. Keystone itself is kind of cheesy so it was a nice surprise to see a well appointed facility with very welcoming staff. We were hopeful it would be a nice spot since it was affiliated with Ascend and We were not disappointed. The only drawback is that they need... More

Spent only one night here - kind of wish we had time to spend two nights. The grounds are lovely - enjoyed the fire pit and made s'mores. It is close to downtown Keystone. The room was great size, loved the balcony and had a view of mt Rushmore. Breakfast was good. My husband left a jacket in the room... More

This hotel is just a short distance from the hub bub of Keystone but is a beautiful lodge in a peaceful setting. Rooms are large, clean and we'll maintained. The included morning breakfast is a notch above and is served in a scenic building with a view.

So glad we stayed here. Every other accommodation we passed looked very uninviting and dumpy. This lodge has a large common area to relax, have a cup of cofee or tea all day and evening. We didn't take advantage of that but it had a nice welcoming feel as did the Check in. We stayed in building 3b. The room... More

This was our first visit to Keystone and we were fortunate enough to pick K Bar S for our stay. The room we selected was one of only two on the top floor of the main lodge, with a balcony, facing towards Mount Rushmore. Right in front is a beautiful grassy area surrounded by the woods. Every early morning, and... More

Prime location approximately 3 miles from Mt Rushmore. Grounds are beautiful. Rooms are very nice and clean and include a refrigerator. We were in building 3 and the Internet was quite slow. TV stations were somewhat limited and were different than the " card" furnished with the room. In the main lobby there is always coffee, tea, and hot chocolate... More

For those visiting the Black Hills K Bar S Lodge is a great place, beautiful, quiet location. Friendly service, good breakfast, excellent internet service, but it seems far removed from the carnival atmosphere of downtown Keystone.

My family of 3 stayed here in late August 2016 and had a great experience. The reception area is in a beautiful main building and Cedoney checked us in with friendly service. Our room was in a building an easy walk from there, with a hot tub in one of the entrance bays to the building. The room was a... More

i stayed there for my honeymoon, and it was awesome! very nice employees and beautiful views of mount Rushmore. Only down side our room had a fridge, and nice Jacuzzi tub, but no microwave! Wasn't bad just had to go down to main floor.
