It's a great stay! Clean, comfy beds. Good wifi. The pool was pretty cOld and the hot tub was too hot but other than that its a fine place.

I suspect we paid a little more than other local hotels, but in this case you get what you pay for. The hotel was clean; the staff was friendly. We had a king suite which was smaller than expected but for one night we managed (two adults and three kids) just fine. The water in the indoor pool was ice cold -- but the kids didn't notice.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. Great location - you can walk to town and only 2 miles from Mt. Rushmore. Very nicely appointed rooms. The room was quite spacious and clean. No complaints at all. Parking is on the side as pointed out in earlier reviews but wasn't a problem at all. We would recommend this hotel if you are coming to see Mt. Rushmore.

Not the least expensive, but very enjoyable stay. I don't know what the less costly hotels are like, inside. Great location - around the corner from the main touristy strip so easy to walk, but not the noise and traffic, and easy to park. though I'll bet parking a big rig would be difficult. Great breakfast for a "free continental" because it has hot bacon/ham, pancakes and eggs, plus the usual cold choices and breads/pastries/juices/fruit. We recommend it and would stay again. We faced the street on 2nd floor - room 207 - (not noisy, but might be if near the time of Sturgis motorcycle gathering) so we don't know what the other side (faced a hillside) is like. Did not use pool. Lots of families with little ones.

Pretty standard Holiday Inn Express. The location is right off Highway 16A on the way to Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills. This location has easy access to various attractions in the central Black Hills. The rooms were not quite as nice as other HIE's that I've stayed at, no refrig/microwave. Bathroom was huge.

The breakfast was typical HIE fare - eggs, pastries, and the yummy warm cinnamon rolls. The room rate was a bit higher than most HIE, but the location in the heart of the Black Hills, in the heart of tourist season, dictates the room rates.

Room Tip: Be careful where you park, listen to the staff

We booked this hotel in Keystone based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! It's in a lovely location just minutes from Mt Rushmore. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. They had had quite a bit of rain, so it was interesting to watch the water rush by in the creek out front. We opened our window for the fresh air also. We walked next door to the Goldstone for some delicious Mexican food. The continental breakfast was fantastic - delicious cinammon rolls! The staff was very friendly and we loved the decor in the lobby. Really couldn't ask for anything better for the price.

I chose this hotel based, in part, on the reviews on trip advisor, and in part because this was one of the few hotels that had a 24-hour cancellation policy, as opposed to a 36-hour (or more) policy. I was extremely pleased with my decision. The room was clean, comfortable, and the staff excellent. The "continental breakfast" turned out to be a full "hot" breakfast, with eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, and pancakes in addition to the sweet rolls etc. Coffee, packets of cocoa and tea were alwqys available in the lobby. The pool area looked inviting, but unfortunately I became ill while there and did not use the pool. (The only downside I could come up with is the slowness of the internet in the business center--but I suspect that is a function of the reception in the area, as opposed to the hotel itself.) The hotel is walking distnce to many restaurants and shops, and only about a 3 minute drive up the mountain to Mt. Rushmore. If I were to make a return visit to Mt. Rushmore, this Holiday Inn Express would be my first choice.
