The location and price of this motel are great! The staff was friendly, the room spotless, and the bed comfortable. Keystone has much to offer those who love the history of the Old West and it's all within walking distance of this motel, as well as shopping, restaurants, and some activities and attractions. Mt. Rushmore is about a five minute...

This hotel was easy to find and was close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, and Jewel Cave. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was pleasant and was well-stocked for a good start to the day.

The Boardwalk Inn has the perfect central location for walking everywhere in the funky village of Keystone.

Good basic accomodations close to Mt Rushmore. The hot water was hot and the room was spotless. Free breakfast and good wi-fi only added to our satisfaction on this hotel. You can't ask for anything more from a budget hotel. The Couple who manages the property was outstanding. Very friendly and gave us some helpful travel tips.

I would not stay there again if it was the only hotel left available. The rooms had no fridge or microwave. The handrail going up the stairs on the second flight was extremely wobbly and scared my 5 year old. The breakfast was a complete joke. They had cereal containers with no cereal, only 4 hard boiled eggs and store...

We stayed here one night in April. Good time to be in Keystone, as it was not crowded. Front desk was very friendly and changed us from 3rd floor to main. There was parking right in front of our spacious room. Good location for walking the 1 block long main street. Probably because it was preseason, we were not charged...

We stayed one night for the benefit of being handy to Mt Rushmore. We found Keystone friendly and inviting. Location was great and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Room was a good size and the motel was a short walk to downtown. Price was also reasonable
