We spent one night and wished it could have been more. Beautiful rustic lobby, deer and wild turkeys roaming the grounds, comfortable room with a view of Mt Rushmore and a very nice free breakfast in the morning. What else could you want?

We stayed here for a weekend trip over labor day weekend - I highly recommend this hotel! It is less than a half mile from the main strip of Keystone, yet it feels super secluded and you'll even spot lots of wildlife on their property. Hard to get much more secluded yet be so close to the attractions and food...
