I booked this hotel for the view, little did I know I'd just be staring at the backside of a mountain. Yes if you want the view you are gonna pay and not just a little bit extra... I did enjoy the breakfast it was very good and there was a lot to choose from, and you do get to...

We had never been to SD before, so I just chose this place due to it's closeness to Mt. Rushmore and the TripAdvisor rating. We were not disappointed. Every morning we started off with their very nice breakfast. You could choose from just about everything. Each morning it had different hot items like scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits & gravy....

We stayed at this wonderful lodge for a week last October and explored the surrounding areas. So much to see and do, Mt. Rushmore, Gold mines, winery, caves, steam train, Mammoth Archeological site! The Lodge was lovely with excellent breakfast and views, Mount Rushmore in the distance out front, woods and deer, turkeys out back! Each bldg had it's own...

A very nice hotel just a short drive to Mount Rushmore. Our room had a view of the mountain and we could clearly see George Washington first thing in the morning. The staff was super! Fairly good restaurants nearby and the locals were very friendly and eager to show off their nice little town!

If you want a peaceful and beautiful setting, away from the craziness of main street Keystone this is the place to stay. A few miles off the beaten path but lovely accomodations and wonderful breakfast in a separate building.

My husband and I got married here in July 2016 and I could not have asked for a better place to get married! The meadow with the hills in the background is the most beautiful setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony & turns out so pretty in pictures. I love the lodge atmosphere of the whole hotel & property, and...

This place is hidden yet close to town. Our destination was the Buffalo Roundup at Custer, but this was the closest we could get at a late notice. Curious turkeys greeted us in the parking lot, deer we're in the front yard and you could see a partial of Mt Rushmore.Our room was clean, bed was comfy and there was...

This is a real, if a little hidden, gem. We stayed here given its proximity to Mt Rushmore (major disappointment) but are so glad we did. Located on the outskirts of the lovely town of Keystone and the truly beautiful landscape of the Black Hills, the K Bar S Lodge is a perfect centre to tour this magnificent and largely...

Upon arrival, hot cookies were available in several flavors. My snickerdoodle was delicious and I love cookies and am pretty picky when it comes to cookies. The lobby has a huge gathering space with a balcony that was perfect to sit on and enjoy an early evening glass of wine. The view was fantastic and you could just make out...
