Stayed here and saw all kinds of neat wildlife, mule deer, wild turkeys, elk, etc. The operators are amazing people and allowed our little puppy to stay as well. Great people here and they helped us map out our visit, big ups to them.

Cute old lodge off the main road into Keystone. Everything in the city was pretty much shut down. Nice clean rooms, pet friendly. Staff was very friendly and had a nice breakfast for there few customers. Lots of wildlife around and quiet. I'd stay again.

I choose the Lodge at Mt. Rushmore because of its price and ranking, and for being dog-friendly. Good: Nestled in the Black Hills just outside of Keystone, the Lodge at Mt. Rushmore is open for a limited time during off season. The Keystone off season apparently starts after labor day. The owners/operators were super friendly, showing me a more private...

We stopped to visit Mount Rushmore and since it is way off season and we were traveling with a pet our choices were very limited in the local vicinity. The hotel is a former Best Western and will be shutting down for the winter for updates and repairs. That covers just about any complaint or less than good review previously...

Although darn near everything in Keystone was closed, the hotel had a (although limited) room service menu with pizza and pasta's. They also have a professional masseuse that will come to your room (no funny business included ). The breakfast was normal, scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, pastry, toast, cereal... Our room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable...

Traveling south for the winter. Visited Mt Rushmore and Custer. Stayed at The Lodge at Mt Rushmore in Keystone. Great lodge and great management. One of only a few open at this time of year. Ate at Barlee's. A little pricey but good food.

We stayed one night at the lodge in April 2016. I thought the room was nice, comfy bed, nice atmosphere. We swam in the pool and sat in the hot tub, very nice. No problems with the stay at all. I would recommend to anyone.

Nice place. Staff took good care of us. Rooms were clean. Breakfast in the morning was adequate but not outstanding. The 24 hour a day coffee was a nice touch. Big lounge was nice to sit in and just look out at the scenery.

Appears to be hotel under new ownership as the sign on the side of the road is a temporary cover over the old sign. We had stayed here 6 days ago and came back because of the forecast of snow. Both stays were great. Not a large hotel but the staff behind the desk was very friendly and helpful. Rooms...
