We had never been to SD before, so I just chose this place due to it's closeness to Mt. Rushmore and the TripAdvisor rating. We were not disappointed. Every morning we started off with their very nice breakfast. You could choose from just about everything. Each morning it had different hot items like scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits & gravy.... More

This place is hidden yet close to town. Our destination was the Buffalo Roundup at Custer, but this was the closest we could get at a late notice. Curious turkeys greeted us in the parking lot, deer we're in the front yard and you could see a partial of Mt Rushmore.Our room was clean, bed was comfy and there was... More

This is a real, if a little hidden, gem. We stayed here given its proximity to Mt Rushmore (major disappointment) but are so glad we did. Located on the outskirts of the lovely town of Keystone and the truly beautiful landscape of the Black Hills, the K Bar S Lodge is a perfect centre to tour this magnificent and largely... More

Upon arrival, hot cookies were available in several flavors. My snickerdoodle was delicious and I love cookies and am pretty picky when it comes to cookies. The lobby has a huge gathering space with a balcony that was perfect to sit on and enjoy an early evening glass of wine. The view was fantastic and you could just make out... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night while visiting Mt. Rushmore. It's in an excellent location. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast was very good and we were able to watch deer while eating. I would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the K Bar S Lodge from October 13th thru the 16th, 2016. We had room 1009, which is ground floor of the main lodge. Nicely appointed with the name of the lodge engraved 'brand-like' on the headboards. And from our room we had a great profile view of George Washington's head from Mt. Rushmore.... More

We enjoyed our stay and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were on a road trip to visit National Parks and Keystone is a great location for Mt Rushmore and could be a jumping off spot for other South Dakota National Parks. The setting is off the main road, very quiet with trees around and an occasional deer.... More

This was our 2nd stay at this wonderful property. Located a very short drive from Mount Rushmore, it offers sizable rooms with comfortable beds and nice showers. The breakfast is superb, with many choices both hot and cold. The breakfast building is circular with windows all around allowing you to see deer and wild turkeys each morning. We were on... More

An extremely attractive accomodation in a wooded setting offers rooms with a distant view of Mt. Rushmore. We could see Jefferson in profile from the balcony of our first floor room. Breakfasts were served buffet style with both hot and cold variety of offerings. We would definitely stay here again.
