For an inexpensive hotel in keystone it was very pleasant. The people at the desk were very friendly and went above and beyond to get us checked in early. Rooms were fairly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but good.

Room was clean, help was friendly. Breakfast not bad, and our 3 year old loved the pool. Its also nice because it's off the main drag just a little bit, so its quieter. All in all this place exceeded my expectations and i had no complaints

We had a suite with a refrigerator and microwave. Room was spacious and clean. Pool was nice. Breakfast was simple. In a quiet area, not in walking distance to any attractions. No elevator. We would stay here again.

We thought this was by the main street, but actually is is not within walking distance of anything. Area was quieter than the downtown area. Room and service was great, breakfast not filling but free, and rooms could use a fridge for leftovers since no where close to walk to.

We have not arrived for our stay yet, but the preparation and reservation review could not have been completed without the skillful assistance of Front Desk personnel, Val. Once we arrive and enjoy our vacation I intend to update this review.....

The Econo Lodge was well maintained, very clean, and had a pleasant helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay. Had the best biscuits and sausage gravy at the complimentary breakfast. Would stay there again and recommend it to friends.

When booking trip to show my husband the black hills I knew keystone was the best spot to spend our fist few days. I originally booked a different hotel but after reading reviews I decided the econolodge would serve our needs at a better price. Since it wasn't a big price difference we should have gone with my first choice.... More

We had planned to come to Mt Rushmore months in advanced. I called the Econolodge to make a reservation. I wanted a non-smoking room with 2 queen beds on the bottom floor (cannot climb stairs).

The location of this hotel is very good. The room we had was very small but we did ok. The breakfast area could be a little bigger but we just took our toast and coffee to our room. We learned real quick that there wasn't enough hot water in the morning for a shower so we just showered at night,... More
