I feel like this hotel is a bit of a bait and switch...they have two sections of the hotel - the "old" section and the newly remodeled section - when looking at the photos online and reading comments online I now realize most of the great reviews were of guests who stayed in the new section. I thought that is what we were booking as well - and when we checked in then went to the front desk to ask if we could move to one of the suites and (of course) those rooms were booked up. So basically we were in a very standard hotel room. The other downside of booking here was that we paid a price of $130+ a night, but once we arrived in keystone saw prices for the hotel advertised at $49.99 a night. Availability might be an issue on busy weekends but paying over half for the hotel room would have been great. Breakfast was also a bit of an issue - very crowed, people running for the food that was brought out, and not enough of anything they served. We got by on the breakfast for the few days we stayed - but it was not the best experience or way to start the day.
The one plus I will give this hotel is the location - a little out from the "downtown" of Keystone (only by a few blocks) but still close to restaurants, a little strip mall with subway, coffee shop, and a dairy queen - and only about 2 miles from Mount Rushmore, close to the Black Hills, Crazy Horse and other attractions. And since we left each morning around 8 and didn't get back to the room until 9-10pm each evening we thankfully didn't spend much time in the actual room.
