I spent 4 nights at the Keystone Travelodge while visiting the plentiful attractions as day-trips in the area. I was most impressed that I could see Mount Rushmore from the balcony outside my room, and almost no other hotels can make that claim. The front desk staff, day and night, were extremely helpful and actively greeted you each time your arrived back "home." The location was just out on the fringe of the hustle-n-bustle of the touristy 'downtown' making it a quiet place to stay, with easy parking, while still an easy walk to the downtown and many restaurants. I was able to spend time in Custer State Park, at Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and even visit Wind Cave National Park easily from the location. The room was fairly standard, but clean and quiet; my top requirements. I'd definitely stay here again.

Very very smalll, smelly, humid and dark that was our room in this motel!
The breakfast "space" was also tiny with only a couple of small tables and chairs along the walls and people standing around eating or waiting to be able to access the table with the "food" dispenser!
WiFi signal in the room was very poor!l
The view of Mount Rushmore you can have from the parking place (not from the rooms) is a side view, and the profiles you can see are a couple of miles away.
Our worst staying in the 20 days trip on the West of USA and Canada

If you have decided to spend the night in Keystone in order to be close to Rushmore, you just made your first unfortunate mistake. Keystone is a low-rent rubber tomahawk, fried cheese and engraved spoon paradise. Rapid City is so worth the short drive. The Travelodge's first surprise was a good one - we could see Mt Rushmore from the property. But from the funky AC that sounded like sleeping inside a propeller plane all night long to the free bagel breakfast, all the other surprises were not pleasant. We give it 3 stars because you get what you pay for, and we knew going in that this was no Hilton.

Room Tip: Choose a hotel in Rapid City, or better yet, Denver.
