Had a great experience staying here last week. The hotel is beautiful and surrounded by trees and nature. There is an awesome breakfast that is served next door in the gazebo which has lots of windows with tables to have family sit and enjoy their time together! I wish they offered pet stays, other than that I highly recommend!

Great view and relaxed ambiance. You can see dears and wild turkeys roaming around. Nice continental breakfast with fruits and self-made waffle . It is not the simple continental breakfast served in other hotels I had been before. However, no lunch or dinner available. Have to go out to dine.

I am giving this a 4 star, based on the location ~ there are no really nice hotels in the whole area ~ and it was a good location and good value. The rooms are average, but clean. Old motel, scratchy bed linens (I was happy I brought my own pillow covers), plentiful towels, plenty of hot water. There was...

We stayed here 2 nights and upon a late evening arrival we were thrilled to see Mount Rushmore lit up ! We stayed in one of the newer buildings with our room facing Mount Rushmore. The room was clean, modern and more than we expected. The breakfast was fantastic, we loved the separate building and saw wild turkeys on our...

Nice place to stay. Nice rooms, view, grounds. Friendly helpful staff. We got a room with a view of Mt Rushmore.....its an ok view of Mt Rushmore but nothing great, but I would recommend it because the general overall view is nice in these rooms and it is worth it to sit out on the porch in the evening with...

We weren't sure what to expect from hotels in small Keystone, but K Bar S was very nice. It was recent/updated, clean and comfortable. It was off the main street, but in nice weather it's a short walk. The breakfast was fine (continental with eggs, bacon and waffles) and the front desk sold beer/wine. We chose a room with a...

When we originally were planning to visit Mt. Rushmore, I had booked a room in Rapid City. I had to cancel that trip and looking back--I am glad that we did. Staying in Keystone highlighted the natural beauty of South Dakota. This hotel is set in a forgotten, picturesque valley surrounded by sharp rocky peaks on all sides that are...

This lodge was the perfect place to stay while visiting Mt. Rushmore. We booked a king room and were very disappointed with the first room we were given. It was on the ground floor and backed right up to the back of a rock formation, so it was dark as a cave. The desk staff were very accommodating and moved...

Stayed for 5 nights. Not in town and too far to walk to town but in a VERY BEAUTIFUL location, First room was small and an "attic room". It was very clean and comfortable. Problem with room was windows didn't open and one window didn't have a shade so they covered it with a towel. The second room was to...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways~ K Bar S Lodge is pure perfection; the grounds where the lodge sits is a park with wild life all around. The grounds are immaculate. The lobby is beautiful , the front staff is helpful and welcoming. The rooms! Large with snowy white bedding, the bathroom has white thick towels...
