I made the decision to stay here for a 2-night stay in the Mt Rushmore area thinking it would be nice to have a bit more room than the standard motel. The location to all the surrounding sites was excellent but was disappointed in room...More

We do have much larger cabins but not at the price you paid for the duplex unit. I can't speak to the blanket issue, but I think if one looks at all the reviews one might find this really petty. We have families with 3...More

I had a WONDERFUL week with a friend at the Holy Smoke resort. The rock collecting was amazing! It was quiet and breathtaking scenery. We were out of the city enough for gorgeous sunsets, but close enough to have fun shopping and delicious meals. Looking...More

We rented a cabin for 2 nights. So cute , log style with a 4 post bed. Clean. Great location outside Keystone to visit all the local sd tourist destinations. The only drawback, we added a 3rd night and they had to have us switch...More

Thanks for the great review! Our cabins tend to stay pretty full hence the move on the added night. We do a lot of switching to avoid moves, but sometimes it can't be done. Much different than motels that have 150 rooms alike.Please return to...More

Holy Smoke is maybe 3 miles from Mount Rushmore, on right side of highway as you go down the hill towards Keystone, SD. They offer camping sites and cabins. Ours was a two bedroom, one bath wonder atop the hill. Thanks to Lynette for waiting...More
