My wife and I stayed here for one night while visiting Mt. Rushmore. It's in an excellent location. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast was very good and we were able to watch deer while eating. I would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the K Bar S Lodge from October 13th thru the 16th, 2016. We had room 1009, which is ground floor of the main lodge. Nicely appointed with the name of the lodge engraved 'brand-like' on the headboards. And from our room we had a great profile view of George Washington's head from Mt. Rushmore....

We enjoyed our stay and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were on a road trip to visit National Parks and Keystone is a great location for Mt Rushmore and could be a jumping off spot for other South Dakota National Parks. The setting is off the main road, very quiet with trees around and an occasional deer....

This was our 2nd stay at this wonderful property. Located a very short drive from Mount Rushmore, it offers sizable rooms with comfortable beds and nice showers. The breakfast is superb, with many choices both hot and cold. The breakfast building is circular with windows all around allowing you to see deer and wild turkeys each morning. We were on...

An extremely attractive accomodation in a wooded setting offers rooms with a distant view of Mt. Rushmore. We could see Jefferson in profile from the balcony of our first floor room. Breakfasts were served buffet style with both hot and cold variety of offerings. We would definitely stay here again.

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....

After staying at K Bar S and reading reviews of the alternatives, I can't imagine staying anyplace else in Keystone. From our standpoint, everything was right with our stay here: 1. Hotel was friendly, clean, up to date and conveniently located to both Keystone and Mt. Rushmore. 2. Room was comfortable and up to date. Everything worked. 3. Breakfast was...

Of course this is in a beautiful area and is a lovely resort. One can see a small profile of George Washington's head on Mt.Rushmore 5 miles away. It is up a mountain road about a half mile or so from the town of Keystone, so it is quiet. Deer can be seen feeding on the immense green grounds. Our...

Great location with view of Mt Rushmore lit up at night and in the morning sun. Very good breakfast. Nice staff. Close to town, but probably not walkable. Tour picked us up at hotel Easy parking. Good size room.
