Although this two queen bed suite was very clean and nice it had no windows which made it very dark and dingy and unappealing. Staff at Rushmore Express were extremely nice and helpful when asked about places to eat and see in the areas.

We spent 3 days here in September and were very pleased. The Inn is two miles from Mt Rushmore so we could easily get there by sunrise and back again for the evening lighting ceremony. We had a standard room and enjoyed the ease of parking right outside our door. Room was clean and comfortable with plenty of towels. Staff...

We visited Keystone, SD back in June a family week long trip full of intense hiking during early morning and plenty of relaxing time in the afternoons. The town Is nestled in a little valley near Mount Rushmore, not too crowded, great dining and if one likes plenty of cute gift shops. We stayed in the Rushmore Express Hotel, outstanding...

Stayed here one night on our way to Colorado because it is close to Mt Rushmore. Comes with continental breakfast. Not the best continental breakfast. Room had fridge and microwave. It was ok for one night.

Our stay was nice, clean. But old fashion sheets blue and pink. It was an ok hotel. Breakfast was good for the first few days then got old on the 3rd day needed something different. Would be nice to have eggs and sausage. Oatmeal was not good.

Cons: Clean and tolerable although our room smelled like stale cigarettes (non-smoking room). Very outdated. Breakfast was the worst. Like I told my husband, it has to be cheaper to just offer donuts and assorted fruit. Pros: Super friendly staff! Pool area is okay. Conveniently located, everything within walking distance. Would stay again based on the pros.

Had a jacuzzi tub in our room. Bathroom had heated floors and was very spacious. Had separate living area with fire place and tv.

A friendly welcome at the front desk set the tone for a pleasant stay. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet so we had a good sleep. The wi-fi worked well. Location is convenient to monument and shops. Definitely recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Highly recommend the King Suite with sofa sleeper. We didn't need the sofa sleeper as it was just 2 of us. However, the room was big.
