We spent two nights here - had a lovely room and could see Mt. Rushmore (well, part of it) from our room. The "continental" breakfast was actually a FULL breakfast buffet in a lovely windowed room. The guests were friendly, the staff was helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It would be a great place to stay for the day...

My friend found this hotel for us to stay during the annual sturgis rally, so I didn't know what to expect but as soon as we got there I loved it. The hotel is off the road, so when you pull up you don't know anything else exists, very quiet. We had rooms in the main lodge with a view...

Stayed here one night in Sept, 2016, and only wish we could've stayed longer. The setting is superb with rolling hills and walkways, lobby is inviting with a western flair, room was clean and comfortable, service friendly and many amenities are offered. Our room had a view of Mt. Rushmore. Breakfast is served in an adjoining building and had everything...

Arrived after 9:00 local time, btw, the town rolls up the sidewalks about this time, no food available at the hotel. There is limited parking near your actual room. Expect a long walk, generally up hill. I suggest you unload, them park. The room was clean and nicely furnished.

Even though we were there at check-in time we had to wait an extra hour while our room was still being cleaned. When we finally got into our room we found it to be large, clean and comfortable. We had opted for a mountain view room with a side view of Mt. Rushmore. The full breakfast was excellent. The setting...

We read reviews and room tips and booked this place accordingly... Turned out better than thought... Keystone is a tourist trap town... This place is out of sight in a nearby forested glen...but you can walk to town if you want... We were in October and half the town was shut down and believe k bar s was closing in...

This hotel is in a great location with views of Mount Rushmore. The hotel is not fancy but very clean and breakfast is included. Only minutes from the town of Keystone and Mount Rushmore. Very centrally located. Firepit at night to do smores.

Our room was perfect, could see Mt. Rushmore and everything was great. Perfect setting for our Grandson's outside wedding. Will definitely return to this lodge. Was easy to get to and the price was good .

Great location for all sight-seeing related to Badlands. Very convenient for day trips to all locations. Quiet setting in the forest. Wildlife on the grounds each morning and evening. Quality complimentary breakfast each morning. Comfortable and quiet lodging. Lodge-feel lobby, very nice. Great evening dining within minutes in and near-by Keystone. What else could you ask for ??
