I recently stayed at the Roosevelt Inn on a driving trip through North and South Dakota. I'd never been to Keystone so I wasn't sure where to stay. I'm glad I chose the Roosevelt. The hotel is pretty old and could probably use an update but it was comfortable and the staff was very friendly. There is a pizza restaurant...

We got to the Roosevelt Inn after a very long day on the road. We needed a place that was affordable, within a short ride of Mount Rushmore and pet friendly. When we arrived the staff was friendly and we checked into a One Bedroom Suite. We had two rooms, one was a living room area with a couch, flat...

Was clean, very reasonably priced especially with breakfast (limited) included. The people at the front desk were helpful. Very close to Mt. Rushmore. Beautiful country, with deer everywhere. I would stay there again & also recommend.

Located in a great location for walking to eating establishments and the alpine slide across the road. Easy drive to Mt. Rushmore and other Black Hills Attractions. Room was clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was friendly and the experience was more like a B&B and a hotel.

After reading reviews on trip advisor, I wanted to love this hotel, but I didn't. The good things...great location for seeing Mt. Rushmore, comfortable beds, surprisingly quiet rooms, very reasonable rate. The problems...tiny, cramped room, cheap, outdated furniture, disgusting moldy grout and shower curtain in bathroom. Would really have to think about staying here again, just not sure.....

This hotel is a little bit tired looking, but the rooms were clean, big and comfortable. We had a balcony room, which was nice to sit out on. The breakfast was complimentary and was a bit hit and miss, can you actually water the milk down? It was in the perfect location for Mount Rushmore which was why we chose...

The mattresses were completely worn out. The Inn had multiple plumbing problems while we were there 2 nights/3 days. This family will not go back. Be careful if you are disabled [I am].

We would like to know what multiple plumbing problems you encountered since we are not aware of any. Also, none of our mattresses are more than five years old and to our knowledge none are yet in need of replacement. People do sometimes write that our mattresses are either too hard or too soft but no one has said they...

This is the place to stay when visiting Mt Rushmore. A quick walk into town and only 2 miles from Mt Rushmore. The room is clean and quiet and the price is very reasonable. Did not have their breakfast in the morning, but many other guests did...Would stay their again..

I stayed here for 3 nights and it worked out great. The microwave and fridge in room was convenient. The main thing I care about with motels is that I can sleep and that worked out great. The balcony was a nice little touch and a good place to hang and drink your morning coffee. The lobby is closed from...
