This is a very helpful and friendly hotel. If we had our time over we would stay in one of the other rooms other than the country rustic. These rooms are accessed from outside whereas the other rooms are internal. I also suffered from a sore back from the bed and there were not enough pillows - that said, when...

We stayed here one night and it was great. We loved the location. The room was spacious and very cleaned. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast has been the best so far we have had on our road trip. Have no complaints. Everything worked as it was supposed to the hotel attendant was very helpful. I definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed here 2 nights. It was very comfortable. The pool was very busy both days. It was the perfect location for all the sightseeing we did in the area. It was quiet. The staff was great. The room was really clean.

I stayed here with my family while in town for a wedding. We had several rooms between all of us. Every single room type was exceptional! Especially the suites. Beautiful, rustic, even romantic. AND hotel has an indoor heated pool and hot tub! AND AMAZING BREAKFAST. Thank you, for providing an unforgettable vacation. PS. be sure to visit "Bear Country"...

We found this place to be very close to Mt. Rushmore, and booked it for two nights. It is an older place, rather rustic -- but very clean and quiet. Our room had extremely comfortable beds with good bedding. There was a microwave and small fridge, and free wi-fi. The breakfast was free but kind of disappointing...they could try a...

We reviewed places to stay in Keystone on trip Advisor an this was in our wheelhouse. If you want cleanliness and free breakfast, pool and a family suite this checks all your buckets. The front desk was awesome. From check in to when my daughter needed colored pencils for her 9th grade assignment it was bar none. They even found...

Let me start by saying, everything I read about lodging in Keystone said the options were few and the quality left much to be desired, so I had concerns when I finally settled on Rushmore Express Inn & Suites. Needless to say, my concerns quickly disappeared upon arriving. We checked in and found it to be very busy as many...

Brad C, It sounds like you had an absolutely fabulous experience with us despite your initial pre-trip reservations! Thank you for sharing about your stay. And yes, our suites actually are built new as of 2006, as an add-on to the hotel. We like them too. :) Best wishes, and we hope to see you again next time you find...

Excellent room in hotel just a little away from the main strip in Keystone (seemed to be a good thing). Helpful staff, good amenities, decent breakfast only minutes from Rushmore and other local attractions

The suite is excellent! I would improve on TV channels because all they have is Fox news the. History Channel, a few Cartoons, and KELO land. No QVC. The suite has a lovely sitting area, king bed, phoney fireplace, and a top notch bathroom with heated floors. Tv in bedroom. The nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. The free...

I cannot tell you all how much I recommend this hotel. It was tucked in behind the main street in a really quiet little nook. When we opened the door to our suite my husband and I both said, "Wow!" The room was enormous, with a beautiful living room with a fireplace. Then you venture on deeper into the room...
