4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We had a non-pet room request and the owner emailed back quickly and acknowledged. The family suite was clean with no pet odor. The queen beds were very comfortable, however, the sleeper sofa mattress was shot and must be replaced, very uncomfortable! Room and furniture are at the point where a remodel should be planned soon. Our suite was spacious,... More

Not recommended. Ice machine didn't work. Bathroom very small. TV not best. Hard to get station and volume didn't work. Heater unit very old and you either froze or was too hot. Parking not best. Staff was ok but not very friendly. Lighting terrible.

We stayed the Inn for Mt. Rushmore visit. Except the parking is a little tricky, the Inn is clean and good place to stay. Breakfast is good. It is close to a tiny mall. There are foods, souvenir stores. Everyone was happy to have what they wanted.

This hotel is in a great location! You can walk to restaurants , shops, and the tramway adventure. You can not walk to Mt Rushmore ( I read one review that said you could but it would be a long up hill walk). The rooms we stayed in (3 of them) all had balconies with a view of the tramway... More

The location cannot be beat with a short walk to the zip adventure across the street and to the main Keystone boardwalk. If you want a spectacular view of Mt. Rushmore you can continue on Cemetary Rd. which is the street the Roosevelt is located and from the cemetary you can see Rushmore in distance. Best view is in the... More

The location of this hotel is awesome! It wasn't as clean as I would have liked, but we were traveling with 4 teens and the loft room was perfect and priced right! The parking is horrible, you have to take a death defying ride up a blind access on the side of the hotel to the back lot - on... More

We enjoyed your description of the driveway to the parking lot as "death defying" ... and a few folks who ride motorcycles might agree with that assessment. For those who may not find your word picture adequate, the photo of the hotel on this site actually shows the driveway and a portion of the parking lot behind the building. More

Changed to this place from the Holiday Inn Express to save about $100. Property was fairly comfortable, picked this location because of proximity to Mt. Rushmore. Alpine Adventure attraction is across the parking lot. Complimentary breakfast was pretty good. Pizza place next door was average - nothing exceptional. Room was nothing exceptional - ok for one night. If you want... More

This hotel is in a great location. There is a pizza restaurant in house, walking distance to all kinds of food, entertainment, and shopping. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was pretty good as well. The only complain was the bed. It was hard and uncomfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to share your views. I fully understand your opinion regarding the hardness of the bed. Like most lodging properties we source our beds from a hotel supply company that offers a full range of products at various firmnesses ranging from extra soft to extra firm. Every company we have ever dealt with has suggested... More

Just ok. If I had to stay here more than one night I probably would find a different hotel. The halls smelled but our room smelled very clean. The bathroom was incredibly small and with every flush of the toilet you wonder if it was going down or going to come back up! My boys took one look at the... More
