“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This hotel/motel was a great find. Right on the edge of town and in a great location. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The morning complimentary breakfast also was good. Everything was spotless and the owners are very attentive. The only drawback was that the bathrooms are very small.

We stayed July 1st and 2nd - the room was nice with a balcony, very clean- fun to watch the zip liners and sit and watch the sunset. Close to Mt Rushmore, Crazy horse, easy to walk about the town..
Friendly owners..definately would stay again.

We stayed 2 July 2014 and we enjoyed the stay. It was clean, staff was wonderful. I have to say Roosevelt Inn was clean, the fridge was cold, shower and toilet worked. Mt Rushmore was just a hop and skip away. This is a clean hotel and the staff is very friendly. Price is no more expensive than any other hotel in my opinion. You cant get any closer to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse.

We stayed one night at the Roosevelt Inn in one of the Loft Suites. The bathroom was tiny. However, the room was clean, convenient and a short drive to Mount Rushmore and other attractions. A continental breakfast was also offered in the morning.

We spent one night here during a weekend excursion to Mount Rushmore. Location being everything, you cannot beat the Roosevelt Inn in Keystone SD. I would not recommend staying in Custer, it's just too far away from the Monument. The Roosevelt has a quaint old fashion feel to it which isn't bad. It is an older property. The elevator was very slow and creeked a lot. Because of the pizza parlor off the lobby (we didn't eat there) the lobby and even the 3rd floor hallway smelled like pizza. Fortunately our room did not smell like pizza. Even though we were on the 3rd floor, our room still looked out into the parking lot. This is because the hotel is built into a hill. If you want a quieter room,go higher than 3rd floor. It was a warm night so I opened our window. We then were treated to talking and people talking in the parking lot and locking their car doors with a beep.

The room itself was adequate. Nice size fridge. coffee maker, TV with cable (HBO) but many of the channels had very bad reception. There is a very small 1 sink area outside the bathroom which was also very small. Toilet and shower. The fan was loud but there is a heat lamp on a timer that you can use instead of the light which comes on with the fan. The Free Wi-Fi was good. The beds were comfy. For a quick over-nighter when you're not spending much time in your room, this Hotel will meet your needs nicely.

The breakfast in the morning was a standard continental breakfast. Coffee,OJ, pastries, muffins, croissants, hot french toast and waffles (pre-made), cold cereal, hard boiled eggs.

Check in and out was a breeze. The couple that runs the hotel were very nice from our limited interaction with them.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony higer than the 3rd floor.

The Roosevelt Inn offers a convenient location for a decent price, especially when compared to other hotels in the area. It was a short drive to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Custer State Park. There were quite a few restaurants and shops within walking distance. A continental breakfast every morning offered a variety of breakfast food items in the lobby. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, I was amazed at how quiet it was, some of the room items could be updated (only about 10 TV stations, WiFi was spotty at best, bathroom and balcony doors were hard to open/close). Definitely an average hotel, but I was pleased with what I got for my money.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony patio are a great upgrade - the balcony was a perfect place to sit and relax wh...
