Checked in, room looked ok, paper thin walls - could hear every word from the TV in the next room. Turned on AC to cool off room and went into town. This hotel isn't close to town at all by the way! Its on the highway on the way down the hill to Keystone. Maybe 5 mins out of the...

Very nice hotel, quiet, clean, decent breakfast, great pool, staff was helpful, courteous and professional. Beds are comfortable, rooms are tastefully decorated and a.c works quietly. Yes it is ten minutes from town, but having a quiet place to sleep means more to me.

So far, this seems like an acceptable place to stay (although it's our first night here and I haven't tried a night's sleep here yet). The staff is very friendly, and the beds seem fine. But upon entering our room, we found a hole in the wall where the door handle had bashed in the adjacent wall, obvious marks along...

I rate reviews based upon if I would stay again. I would not. Absolutely agree with most previous reviewers. Good location, staff pleasant, bottled water offered at departure. Lobby looked better than room. Carpet was old & stained, towels & pillows seriously need replacing. Bath vanity sits outside of bath so that 2 could get ready simultaneously. There are better...

Like many recent visitors, we bought a voucher for a 2-night stay for this hotel from another travel site. I had held off reading any reviews until just before we went, and considering the slew of good and bad comments, wasn't sure what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised. There was almost always someone at the desk (unlike previous...

I was a tad worried after reading some previous reviews; but options were few and I was only staying one night . . . Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was great, even gave me a free parking pass for Mt. Rushmore. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was like every other free breakfast. Overall, I'm glad...

We stayed overnight here so that we might visit Mt. Rushmore. This hotel is about 10 minute drive away...very convenient. The hot breakfast in the morning was quite good with eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, toast, cereal, yogurt... The staff ( front desk clerk) deserves a huge thank you and job well done...she offered to dog sit our little fur baby while...

I would never stay at this hotel again. Room was dirty, bed was broken down, pillows were awful, breakfast was disorganized and less than mediocre, toilet didn't work. Complained to the owner and was supposed to get a discount but never came through. Most disappointed I've ever been with a hotel.

The workers are very willing to tell you how to get every where you need to go. Always a friendly smile when you came back to the lodge. Great location to all the sights and Keystone is right down the road where there are many eating places and fun shops. Breakfast is a big plus and it is good.
