We stopped to visit Mount Rushmore and since it is way off season and we were traveling with a pet our choices were very limited in the local vicinity. The hotel is a former Best Western and will be shutting down for the winter for updates and repairs. That covers just about any complaint or less than good review previously...

Although darn near everything in Keystone was closed, the hotel had a (although limited) room service menu with pizza and pasta's. They also have a professional masseuse that will come to your room (no funny business included ). The breakfast was normal, scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, pastry, toast, cereal... Our room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable...

Traveling south for the winter. Visited Mt Rushmore and Custer. Stayed at The Lodge at Mt Rushmore in Keystone. Great lodge and great management. One of only a few open at this time of year. Ate at Barlee's. A little pricey but good food.

We stayed one night at the lodge in April 2016. I thought the room was nice, comfy bed, nice atmosphere. We swam in the pool and sat in the hot tub, very nice. No problems with the stay at all. I would recommend to anyone.

Nice place. Staff took good care of us. Rooms were clean. Breakfast in the morning was adequate but not outstanding. The 24 hour a day coffee was a nice touch. Big lounge was nice to sit in and just look out at the scenery.

Appears to be hotel under new ownership as the sign on the side of the road is a temporary cover over the old sign. We had stayed here 6 days ago and came back because of the forecast of snow. Both stays were great. Not a large hotel but the staff behind the desk was very friendly and helpful. Rooms...

There was a great deal on the Travelzoo website for this hotel so I bought a few vouchers to combine it for a longer stay of 6 nights during off season. I was nervous because of some of the reviews I've read and the guy who answered the phone when I was making reservations sounded like he was new and...

I received an email from Travel Zoo a few months ago highly recommending The Lodge at Mt. Rushmore as being new. Well, newly remodeled is more like it and a disappointment. Breakfast was included but one day it was fried potatoes and sausages with no eggs. It did have all the other carbs like waffles, muffins, toast, and cereal. The...
