“The best location in Keystone.”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

If convenience to the fun downtown boardwalk is important, this is the place for you. Walk one block to shopping and eating. Nice pool and hot tub with good hours. Hotel is about 15 drive from Mt Rushmore. Be prepared to wait in line to get into Mt Rushmore. Eat at the Ruby Restaurant and also enjoy the live music in The Red Garter Saloon next to restaurant. Also eat at Teddy's Deli for the best Reuben ever!

Great hotel just like any holiday inn. The pool was great. And the location was even better because you could walk to downtown and not worry about parking there.

This HIE was a cut above most. Key pluses were quiet location at the end of Keystone's quaint business district, the friendly and helpful staff, the relatively large rooms, the reasonable rate and the excellent free breakfast. A minor negative was a rather cramped parking lot. I would not hesitate to recommend this HIE to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay while exploring Mt Rushmore and the surrounding areas.

We only stayed in Keystone for one night ,but I don't think we could have picked a better motel.The check in was a breeze, the room was excellent, the breakfast was the nicest I have had in a motel,and I told the Lady that cooked the scrambled eggs etc, that she had done an excellent job. If you are planning on seeing Mt Rushmore, THIS MOTEL IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO STOP AT !! There is a bar 100 yds away and they had excellent food and a great atmosphere.All in all, TWO THUMBS UP !!!

This is by far the nicest motel in Keystone. The front desk staff helps with dinner options. Very friendly. We really loved being able to open the windows to avoid using the air conditioning. The front desk suggested Ruby's for dinner and it was great for taste and local color. Doesn't look like bus tours book here - a real plus - but double check before you book.
We found the breakfast room too crowded at 8am so we ate in Rapid City at a fast food place. That was the one downside to this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor for good ventilation although all rooms are perfectly adequate. We fa...

First, Keystone is a very small town population 337. We stayed here for four nights and five days. There were only two other hotels opened as the tourist season doesn't really start until Memorial Day or shortly before. I am HI Priority Card member so I wasn't concerned so much about other hotels being closed.

This was a great Holiday Inn. The breakfast was great and included in the price. Hot biscuits, gravy, fruit, etc. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We were hiking and walking everyday we were in the Black Hills so the hot tub and pool were used every evening. The hot tub was great , but the pool wasn't heated. Both were clean and well maintained.

Our room was very nice , bed nice and comfy, nice sheets and an extra blanket. Plenty of hot water and nice towels. There is a washer/dryer that we used during our stay. Both worked well. The Internet was a little slow, so I used my 3G enabled tablet instead.

Since Keystone is so small, it was easy walking to local restaurants.

Our only complaint is that there are not refrigerators and/ or microwaves in every room. This is one of the few Holiday Inns that I have stayed at that are not equipped with the above items. The suites have them, but they sell out fast. That would be my only complaint. We also mentioned this to the Front Desk Clerk, we are not the only people who have mentioned this.

Overall, our experience here ws excellent and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but I would have liked a room on the front of the hotel. The back rooms look out...

Everything was great. I spent 1 night here with 2yr old daughter. Pool and hot tub kept her entertained. Plenty of restaurant within walking distance of hotel and mt Rushmore is very close. Breakfast bar (free) was the best I have had that was complimentary. Highly reccomend.
