“Cheap, cheerful and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

We literally got the last room in the hotel, we were staying mid September and Keystone (being so close to Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park and numerous tourist attractions) is clearly a good location. We stayed in a disabled room on the ground floor and it was huge. It had a fridge and microwave which I always like in a room and I loved the little touch of folding the towels into swans. I found the reception staff helpful however they gave me a discount card after checking in which had they given me before I had then I could have had money off the room! There was no breakfast provided but we were given 10% discount on three restaurants on town for breakfast. May I recommend the one nearest the hotel, I can't remember the name but the value for money was incredible and I had the biggest, nicest pancakes ever! The pool and pool area was lovely and quiet so we were lucky esp as our room overlooked it. I didn't particulary love Keystone as it's filled with tourist souveneir shops all selling the same thing but as I said, great location for attractions. Teddy's Deli, at the end of the strip to the hotel has amazing sandwiches. Also a visit to the nearby Reptile Gardens is well worth it.

I stayed here in June 2013. It's a good location for visiting Mt. Rushmore. The room was clean and the staff friendly. We had a pet-friendly room which was great, however, the pet-friendly room was right near the door and next to the stairs. It was so loud hearing everyone enter and exit and pounding on the stairs. There was also a dog in the next room that barked for hours. The parking spots are also insanely narrow.

The best thing about this resort was that it was very clean and had a great location. The resort needs updating and the beds are not very comfortable.
It is very close to Mt Rushmore but because of our fine government, it was closed. Custer State Park was open so we had a great day visiting this site.

We stayed two nights here while we visited Mount Rushmore which is very close by. We had a small room with two small double beds in it, each pushed up against a wall, with one table and light in between. As we prefer to share a bed it meant that one of us would have to climb over the other to get out during the night and only one of us would have access to the bedside light. We managed to push one of the beds slightly away from the wall and my husband loyally offered to be the one to squeeze his way out during the night. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. This was our first (of many during this holiday) experience of the wash basin being in the bedroom mainly, it seemed to us, to allow the bathroom to be as tiny as possible, with no room at all to unpack all the stuff you need. There was a lovely pool but nowhere to leave your clothes while swimming. This is in truth just a cheap motel and like others on here I don't understand it being described as a resort.

When we asked for advice on eating we were told that their restaurant was the best in town. We looked at the menu and thought that if this was true the state of the town must be quite dire. Fortunately we found somewhere fantastic to eat. We had a nice breakfast in the hotel the first morning from the a la carte menu, but on the second morning were told that only the buffet was available. When we asked why we were told that the manager had decreed that this was the case today. We thought it was probably because there was a coach party in and it would have been too much trouble to offer the a la carte breakfast as well. We didn't care for the appearance or price of the buffet as we didn't want much to eat so we went up the road to another diner where we got exactly what we wanted at a reasonable price from a friendly girl who even cooked an English muffin for me when I said I didn't know what it was, despite being English - and she didn't charge me for it! (We call them crumpets - she had said she had heard of these but didn't know what they were! Education all round.)

The location of this hotel is excellent - everything in this cowboy town is within easy reach along the old boardwalks, with lovely shops and a few restaurants and bars.

We stayed here as part of a tour. The hotel is centrally placed and is comfortable. There is a pool that on the day was quite cool and a hot tub that was incredibly hot! Coffee is available from reception. The breakfast is either a la carte or all you can eat buffet - we chose the buffet - this was a mistake it should have been all you can stomach!! We were early at 6.30am and the food was dire. Some of it tasted (?) as if it had been there from the previous day. Food in the US is normally of a high standard - this is the exception. Stay at the hotel it is ok - eat somewhere else.

Bright hotel with good rooms and pleasant swimming pool . Their was an a feeling that in season it all may be a little different with more people as noise would reverberate . However in September great! Keystone doesn't offer a lot

When looking for a place to stay near Mt. Rushmore,I found that this was one of the lower price places in Keystone. The rooms are small but very clean and modern looking. I have a feeling we got an updated one. There is a fridge and microwave and a table and chairs. All a bit cramped but useable. The people at the front desk were freindly and made suggestions for places to eat. Coffee was served in the morning. Ice machine was convenient. The parking was really TIGHT. We were driving a small mustang and barely fit into the spot. They must have had to have a certain number of spots for the hotel so crammed them in. Everyone was over the line and we just made our own spots!! The Motel is at the end of the town board walk and only a quick drive to Mt. Rushmore. Not sure why it would have been called a resort. Just a good motel.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room!
