This lodge is tucked back in a small canyon just off the main road in Keystone. It is about 3-5 minutes from downtown by car. Some would call it an easy walk. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, the breakfast is good, but the setting is beautiful. The lodge buildings are surrounded by "pretty." It would...

On our 50x50 roadtrip we've stayed at a lot of inns and hotels, this is one of the nicer places. Friendly staff, everyone we encountered said hello with smiles. The main lobby has coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, water, and cookies. Also, for purchase are beer and wine. They have an outdoor fire pit you can sit by at night....

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night on our road trip to Yellowstone. The room was very nice and clean, very nice grounds, we even saw a few deer right next to the breakfast room. Great location, close to Mt Rushmore and away from the circus of hotels and shops on the main strip.

I booked this hotel for the view, little did I know I'd just be staring at the backside of a mountain. Yes if you want the view you are gonna pay and not just a little bit extra... I did enjoy the breakfast it was very good and there was a lot to choose from, and you do get to...

We stayed at this wonderful lodge for a week last October and explored the surrounding areas. So much to see and do, Mt. Rushmore, Gold mines, winery, caves, steam train, Mammoth Archeological site! The Lodge was lovely with excellent breakfast and views, Mount Rushmore in the distance out front, woods and deer, turkeys out back! Each bldg had it's own...

A very nice hotel just a short drive to Mount Rushmore. Our room had a view of the mountain and we could clearly see George Washington first thing in the morning. The staff was super! Fairly good restaurants nearby and the locals were very friendly and eager to show off their nice little town!

If you want a peaceful and beautiful setting, away from the craziness of main street Keystone this is the place to stay. A few miles off the beaten path but lovely accomodations and wonderful breakfast in a separate building.

My husband and I got married here in July 2016 and I could not have asked for a better place to get married! The meadow with the hills in the background is the most beautiful setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony & turns out so pretty in pictures. I love the lodge atmosphere of the whole hotel & property, and...

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....

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...
