Ramada Keystone Near Mt Rushmore
Ranked #6 of 13 Hotels in Keystone
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This was a quick stop after "doing" Rushmore with no advance reservations. Young people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Lobby looked fine. Hotel is obviously past its prime and a little worn and dated, but our room was clean and had plenty of room. Noisy A/C and that was a problem. All-in-all it was okay until we went to the buffet in the restaurant for dinner. It was horrible. Perhaps order off the menu if you must, maybe that would be fresh. The food was awful on the buffet. Maybe it had sat there way too long, or maybe the quality was that bad to begin with. Right up there with the worst I have ever had. My husband and I just picked at what we had and left.

we stayed in a cottage....it was very spacious and clean. We had 8 people and there was plenty of room. Wish we could have stayed there longer. We went to the main hotel to swim....our service was excellent!!! Great place for kids to have fun.

After a long drive from Denver we arrived at Keystone late at night without a place stay. We normally do better research on accommodations before arriving at our destination (Tripadvisor being one of our favourite guides) but in this case, we arrived much later than planned and were very tired from our long journey. Mt Rushmore's White House Resort was one of the first hotels we saw and looked impeccable from the outside so without hesitation, we walked in to enquire about availability. What a mistake that was!!

We were greeted by a fellow wearing what appeared to be his pajamas. Understandable, I suppose; after all, it was very late at night. After we paid for one night's accommodation, said concierge left his spot from behind the front desk to direct us to the elevators. Much to our complete surprise, the good fellow was not wearing any pants! That should have been our first indication that Mt Rushmore's White House Resort may not have been the place for us, however, exhaustion from a long drive pushed us to continue forward.

The room, though old, looked neat from all appearances however things began to unravel just after I finished taking my shower. As I was leaving the bathroom I noticed a number of tiny roaches crawling all over the counter. Then, when I pulled back the duvet cover on the bed, I was again surprised to find that the sheets underneath were stained and there were hairs on one of the pillows. Thankfully we were given a room with two double beds so we were able to use the other bed (which was dusty but not as dirty as the first one). In hindsight, we should have immediately notified the front desk but it was very late and we just wanted to get some much needed sleep. Unfortunately, our trip to Mt. Rushmore the next day was ruined with continuous thoughts of the possible insect infestations we may have inadvertently picked-up.

My family and I stayed here July 1,2012. Great place to stay. Just make sure you book online because the rooms go fast. It's a cute little town, with everything you need in walking distance. It has that old little town feeling.

We decided on this hotel for our one night stay in Keystone to visit Mount Rushmore. The hotel was decently priced at $94 for the night, but you get what you pay for. Decently clean room, but we did find hair on one of the pillows (we returned the pillow to the front desk for a new one). Bathroom clean. Beds ok, one squeaked, sheets were paper thin. The parking is a huge problem! The spots are way too small and everyone takes up two spaces. At night, there is no parking in the lot and we were forced to park on the street. The front desk service at night was awful. It took 30 minutes for a simple check in. We almost missed the Mount Rushmore 9 pm show (which is well worth it!) The hotel is located right in town, which is nice to walk through. There are other hotels in the areas just as reasonable. I would not recommend it.

When we stay at a hotel it is just a place to sleep. So for us we are looking for a quiet room and a comfortable bed, in a place that is safe. This place had all three requirements for us. It was a good place to stay the night. The kids went swimming and it is in walking distance of the cute little main street. Just don't eat at the on site restaurant. It was horrible.

This hotel has a great location in a really beautiful town, our room just a standard room, with a fridge and a microwave, it did have free wifi, which is one thing I enjoy with any accommodation. If you wanted a coffee you had to walk to the lobby, to get it, a cop or even a pot was available, and bring it back to your room. The staff were quite helpful with enquiries. the bed in our room was terrible, it had a plastic mattress protector, which led to an uncomfortable nights sleep, the bed also squeaked. There was no safe in the room, no shampoo and the shower had a lousy spray.
