Considering all rates in the area are a bit high because of the tourist destination that the Black Hills is, I have no complaints at all. Beautiful large comfortable family suite, nice pool/hot tub. Helpful front desk, hotel hall and lobby were clean and updated.

Keystone, SD is a tourist town near Mt Rushmore. The Roosevelt is about 5 miles from Rushmore. The rooms are very nice, the staff is super friendly and helpful, and it is hard to beat the location. Walking distance to many food and recreation options. Highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was just what we needed - reasonably priced and pet friendly. The staff was very friendly and the bed was comfortable. Over the weekend, the hallway noise was pretty bad and the walls seemed paper thin. We were out and about during the day, so the room was nice to return to. If the pool is a must...

Thank you for your honest review. Sorry about the noise. We do have a game room that usually is closed by 10:00 pm, I know we had someone enter after hours, perhaps that was the noise? I am sorry about the pool, we hope to have it open by next week. Se are trying to renovate it to bring a...

Joel and Gabriel are the most helpful and friendly people that could be in the hotel business. The room was comfortable, the continental breakfast was just enough and the renovations are beautiful. The rate was fabulous for a tourist town. Stay here and enjoy the vacation, we did.

As soon as we arrived, we experienced nothing but awesome service from check-in to check-out. We were given a room on the 3rd floor facing the road out front with a balcony. From the balcony you can see all the super close attractions near the hotel. (mt slide, zip line, mini golf, etc). The room was very nice and clean....

We try to fine unique and/or historic places to stay on our journeys and this place was great. We stayed in the family suite with a loft where the kids could sleep. They loved it. They wanted to stay again but sadly we had to move on. Very, very quiet which surprised us because most older hotels aren't as well...

This is such a great hotel to stay for a couple of days. The rooms are huge and spacious, ours had a little balcony. Plus is really close to the main attraction, Mount Rushmore! Breakfast is nice, not many tables to sit at though. I really enjoyed my staying here!

I recently stayed at the Roosevelt Inn on a driving trip through North and South Dakota. I'd never been to Keystone so I wasn't sure where to stay. I'm glad I chose the Roosevelt.

We got to the Roosevelt Inn after a very long day on the road. We needed a place that was affordable, within a short ride of Mount Rushmore and pet friendly.
