Bought a travel deal, two nights for $170 including continental breakfast and a one day parking pass for Mt. Rushmore. Hotel is worn and needs some serious deep cleaning. Our room had several big stains on the carpet and a hole in the wall where someone kicked the door in. The staff is friendly and helpful. Basically we just slept... More

I had read several reviews just prior to traveling and was a little nervous about staying there. However, my time there was GREAT!! Rooms were clean, bottled water was free, I received a free pass to the Mt. Rushmore Memorial ($11) and breakfast was good. I was quite impressed with the manager, Emily. Both she and the owner, Mark, were... More

No one at front desk EVER! Very outdated, ugly rooms, sketchy parking lot. Lock was ripped off our door. Cheesy carpet and paneling. Not worth the price! Rude front desk person who is never at the desk. Super loud frig. in room, leaky shower faucet. tv did not work. Popcorn ceiling. Motel 6 quality.

Stayed here with my husband, 2 sons and dog during a visit to Rushmore. It was expensive lodging for what we experienced First the pros--short drive to downtown Keystone and Rushmore, they allow pets. Pool was ok. Cons-tv did not work properly even after staff came up to fix it--so we were not able to watch the Olympics. There was... More

We only stayed here one night. I had wanted to be really close to shopping in Keystone but this was actually not that far. Breakfast was good, the room was clean, they were accommodating of our cat. My only complaint was that every time I went up to the front desk, no one was there. They leave a little sign... More

This is a very nice place to stay when in the Keystone area. My party stayed here on the last night of a week-long trip to Yellowstone, Montana, and the Black Hills. We approached Keystone from the south on Rt 16 and we were using GPS to locate the lodge. GPS places the address on rt 16 yet in the... More

It is mid-range hotel with its rustic charm and meeting many expectations. The location is close to Rushmore National Park, beds are comfortable, room and bathroom are clean, coffee is provided all day, and hot breakfast is included. There is an indoor pool, laundry and computer area. This place is more suited for vacationers than business travel. During our stay,... More

The location was close to Keystone, which is nice. The hotel backs up into a wooded hill so there is really no green space to relax, read or play. The road in front of the hotel is very busy. The main lobby is nice, but overly hot. They either can't counteract the heat that generates from floor to ceiling windows... More

This hotel is kind of plain on the outside, but has a nice lobby area, clean rooms and breakfast is good. The price of hotel at the time we were there was $170/day for a King, (that's a little pricey for what you get) but you can probably get it for less at other times. Staff was responsive and very...
