Very happy with this hotel. It was clean and tidy. The rooms are large and there is plenty of parking. Staff are very friendly and are always happy to help. Breakfast was included but was very basic. It's the standard breakfast in the states that all motels/hotels have. Not like Europe. Acceptable though. Very close to Mount Rushmore and a...

This is an older hotel that needs some updating but was clean and quiet. We stayed three nights and my only complaint was the bathroom was VERY small. We had a king room with a balcony, which was a nice extra. We had no problem with parking or the drive to the back, unlike some other reviews. The staff was...

This older hotel now in the off-season. The Roosevelt Inn is in the heart of Keystone, close to the zip line and restaurants. It has a nice front porch for people watching. The fourth floor room layout a little funky with a table and chairs three steps above the rest of the room, and the vanity/sink right next to the...

It's an OK place - needs updating. I thought the room had a bit of a smell and I try to be flexible on budget travel. They do take pets so maybe I was just smelling the pets of others. Parking is a bit tricky - but the staff were very helpful and nice. We got there late and the...

Very easy to find coming from Mt. Rushmore. Didn't have any trouble with parking like some of the other reviews. Was very clean! Could use a little updating but overall was nice. Enjoyed the pizza from the attached restaurant.

Nice hotel, closest to Mt. Rushmore. Very nice room on third floor.Had stairs to a loft with twin beds which we did not not but was cute. Clean. Breakfast was nice, a bit crowded but they did the best with what was available.

This hotel was the most disappointing part of our entire trip. First,for some people with handicaps the parking. There is very limited parking available. There is like maybe 5 spots in front that are shared with the pizza place inside the hotel. There are like 3 or 4 across the street that if you pull in too far, you'll be...

Very clean room, very comfortable beds, the room was a good price, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to downtown Keystone, SD (easy to walk to dinner and shopping) and close to Mt. Rushmore.

We had a non-pet room request and the owner emailed back quickly and acknowledged. The family suite was clean with no pet odor. The queen beds were very comfortable, however, the sleeper sofa mattress was shot and must be replaced, very uncomfortable! Room and furniture are at the point where a remodel should be planned soon. Our suite was spacious,...

Thank you for submitting your thoughts. And, indeed you are correct, the suites are slated for updating later this year and early next spring. We appreciate your comment regarding the spaciousness of your room. Sometime reviewers note that rooms are small, and this is true regarding the economy rooms which are less than 200 square feet in size. Most of...

Not recommended. Ice machine didn't work. Bathroom very small. TV not best. Hard to get station and volume didn't work. Heater unit very old and you either froze or was too hot. Parking not best. Staff was ok but not very friendly. Lighting terrible.

Although we never like to see a negative review we are even more disturbed when the first we learn of any dissatisfaction is via comments in Tripadvisor by a guest who never raised any concerns while present. Although there's not much we can do when someone complains that a bathroom is small or when complaints such as "parking not best"...
