We had traveled for two days to come to Mount Rushmore in memory of a loved one and it was a pure delight to drive up to the very cute Roosevelt Inn! We were welcomed like family by James at the front desk, who recommended dinner at Ruby's - delicious choice - and gave us information about several other local activities. We were assigned to a cute little "attic" type room which we loved! Slept like a baby and enjoyed every moment of our stay at this cute little Inn! The flowers on the porch were a beautiful touch and the hot breakfast during a pandemic was a wonderful surprise. Breakfast was served by the staff very safely and we enjoyed the delicious food and good service. There was a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room and an ice machine was available. The pool was also available, but we got in so late, we were not able to take advantage of it! How refreshing that the hotel managed to make our stay safe and comfortable even during restrictive pandemic times. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay there myself again. This is an older hotel, but has been updated recently and was a great deal for the price. I'm pretty picky and this place was as clean as can be. Thank you Roosevelt Inn - we had a great stay!

Thanks you Lana for an awesome review. Hearing that our guests had a wonderful stay is so important to us and it is great to hear. We care so much about the guests satisfaction and knowing you had a great stay means a lot. It is such a nice compliment that you feel the room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We have remodeled the hotel to make the hotel even more comfortable for our guests and we have always had a commitment to have extremely clean rooms, with the special circumstances this year, we have taken additional steps to hopefully make sure that guests can feel confident, safe, and secure during their stay. we are in a very central location close to Mount Rushmore and many of the coolest attractions in the Black Hills. We also like hearing you thought breakfast was good. During these crazy times we still want to put out a good breakfast and we have heard from many guests that it was the best breakfast during their vacation.We are serving breakfast to help make it safer, while encouraging social distancing. Candace is our manager and she sets the tone for our staff with her friendly, upbeat attitude. She leads our team in provind the best customer service to and for our guests. We love to hear you would stay again, we would love to see you again Thanks for staying, we are excited to hear you had an awesome stay.

The game room was fantastic! Loved watching my kids play pool, foosball and Pacman! The indoor pool was great. Free parking too. Breakfast was good. No more buffet style w covid rules but they were quick and efficient at serving everyone. Everything was clean and well maintained.

Thank you for the very nice review. Thank you for all the nice words. We are a very family friendly hotel. We have family suites and loft rooms designed with families in mind. We are glad the kids enjoyed the game room, with everything being free. Pool, foosball, video games, board games, big screen TV and more. We also have a indoor pool for the kids. The fun doesn't end there. We are tight next door to Rushmore Tramway. This awesome adventure park has Zip Lines, Scenic Chairlift, Aerial Adventure Park, Alpine Slide, and Jump Tower to name a few things to do. We are glad you family enjoyed breakfast, and you found the hotel clean and well maintained. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for staying. We are so glad you were able to correct some great memories with your family. It is nice to hear you had such a nice time. We hope you and your family can come see us again some time. Until then, safe travels and please stay safe.

The Roosevelt Inn was nicely done for what it is - accommodation in a very touristy town very proximate to Mt. Rushmore. The hotel was clean, and the gentleman on the front desk was both polite and obliging. The gazebo on the 2nd floor was a nice touch, and we enjoyed sitting outside as the sun set. I would be happy to stay here if staying in Keystone again. The broader question - and not one in the control of the Roosevelt Inn, but perhaps a consideration for those reading this review - would be whether to stay in Keystone, with its tacky touristy nature, or drive the extra 20 miles and stay in Rapid City.

Thank you Todd for the nice review. My opinion, stay in Keystone. The location has so many pluses. We are right down the street from Mount Rushmore. This is a huge plue as you can see the presidents during the day and come back at night for the awesome lighting ceremony. The central location of the Roosevelt Inn gives you easy access to many great attractions throughout the Black Hills, many close to the hotel and some an hours drive or less. Another nice thing about Keystone is you will find some great local places to eat like the Ruby House, Powder House Lodge, and a short drive to the Alpine Inn in Hill City(they are great). Keystone has lots of entertainment from Rushmore Tramway, the Presidents Wax Museum, the Borglum Story, and the 1880's train to name just a few great places to see. We always like to hear you found the hotel clean and our staff helpful. The area also has some really nice people who are very friendly and we have some of the most guest focused staff that you could ever meet. We are so thankful for your visit and always happy to hear you had a great time. We are glad you would stay with us again if in the area, so lets take those thoughts about staying elsewhere away. Keystone and the Roosevelt Inn are family friendly and we step up when it comes to making you feel appreciated, because you are!

Convenient to Mt Rushmore, Keystone is quaint mountain town, great shopping and food, our host JAMES at the hotel was professional, knowledgeable, and an overall really nice man !! He was there when we arrived and greeted us as though we had known each other for years. The hotel is dog friendly and they serve a nice HOT breakfast every morning for 2 1/2 hrs, no breakfast bar. Nice amenities on site, although we were so busy we didn’t have time to use the pool. I would definitely go back and support this non-chain hotel, Love supporting the locals !!! :)
