“Great stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The motel is exceptionally clean, the service was fantastic. Good beds and very friendly staff. The only minor comment is not very many TV channels available. I would definitely stay there again.
My friend and I are both handicapped and Scott was wonderful at getting in and taking out our luggage.

Never stay at this hotel..spend your money on a place that does not have bugs, dirty sheets and an awful smell. I have stayed at hotels and motels all across the world this one was the worst. Bugs in the bathroom, on my son and the internet NEVER worked. DONT. STAY HERE

Room Tip: Stay someplace different

We checked into this hotel and took the newly renovated rooms....We took a suite on the top floor so we would have a view of Mt Rushmore .....We expected from the description we would really have a view. We could see it barely....But with a camera and enlargement,, there it was....With the naked eye depending on where your room was it was hard to see. ..Hotel was still a good location in Keystone.....They need to upgrade their bedding. They still have those old bedspreads on their beds and very old and yukky blankets. We asked for extra sheets and were given them with no problem, then proceeded to pull the blanket and the bedspread off the bed and remake with the nice clean sheet. .The service was good and the managers at desk were helpful....

Room Tip: I would ask for the newly renovated suites....did not see any of the other rooms.....these were nice...

First off you can't see Mt. Rushmore from any rooms except maybe a couple. Our first room we got had hair all over the sheets and a bug in the other bed. We were given another room. The sheets had been changed in this room but both beds were up against the walls with about a 2 foot aisle between. This was the smallest hotel room I had ever stayed in. The staff barely spoke English and they have no breakfast.

I was so happy to find a place that looked nice that accepted pets. Then we checked in and the room reeked, was super small. The photos on the webpage were of the 3rd floor suites. VERY misleading. So was the wording on their website. Made it sound like all rooms had certain things, and that there were restaurants in the hotel. No, they were down on the boardwalk. The top mattress wasn't connected well to the box Spring. When leaning against it, it moved and then you got to see stains, dirt and hair. There was hair on the blankets. And even a former guests shirt in between the bed and wall. I had gotten bit in my feet a few times. Ended up taking all bedding off but main sheet and brought in out own bedding we had. I couldn't leave there fast enough.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, I would probably opt for the suites on the third floor.

This hotel looks great from the outside and accepts pets - one of the reasons for booking it for a week stay. It is close to the national and state parks and is centrally located for day trips.
Pro:
Reasonably quiet.
3rd floor suites offer view of Mt Rushmore at more expense.
Free guest washer and dryer on 3rd floor.
Great location for day trips.
Inexpensive stay. (You get what you pay for!)

Con:
Upon arrival, checked under the matress and found food crumbs. We always check for bed bugs. Management sent up a staff member to vacuum (used a floor sweeper.)
Second floor rooms located under 3rd floor suites and hall - many luggage bumping noises.
Room smelled and carpet was soiled. This was a pet room, but could have been cleaner. The matress and box spring was heavily soiled. Back entrance hall and starirs was cleaned only once during our stay. Managements idea of cleanliness is not the same as ours. No in house breakfast - coupons given for breakfast in town. Parking could be an issue for large cars or trucks.

Summary:
Even though the location was excellant, we would probably not stay at this or the other two hotels run by this group. Cleanliness would be the main issue.

Room Tip: Best view is on the third floor - a view of Mount Rushmore is possible. 1st and second floor rooms...

If you're thinking you can see Mount Rushmore from here (like they advertise), don't stay here or you'll be disappointed. The rooms are dated (but clean), with noisy window units and old clumsy televisions. There is supposed to be free wifi, but it only worked for us in the lobby, not in the room. When you pay for an "upgrade" so that you have the view and a "private balcony," you get a room overlooking the highway with a balcony and one chair. When I called for a reservation two months before our trip, the agent told me there was "only one room" left and it was a king "facing the mountain." When we got there, they were advertising all over the place for $49 rooms. I say save your money and stay at one of the other hotels that has honest advertising.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
