9.7 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The location is really great for those seeking a break from the kitsch and glitz of downtown Keystone. Set off from main street in the woods, but still just moments away from the 1880 train depot and downtown Keytstone. The breakfast was very good, with a changing menu, fresh waffles, and fantastic bacon. For real - the bacon was awesome. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a rustic and quiet couple of days in the hills.
Cons: The only complaint I had was that the eggs in the morning were a little too manufactured. I would skip those and stick with the bagels, waffles, and - of course - the bacon. No gym - but that really didn't bother me, since I was on vacation, after all.

6.0 Good
Pros: The only place to eat/drink in offseason is right next door (unless you feel like driving 40 minutes in any direction). A place called Barlees offers limited food options but the staff are incredibly friendly. They offered more/better info than the staff at hotel.
Cons: Staff seemed irritated. Didn't offer much info aside from basics. The morning of checkout I waited 20 minutes for someone to arrive at the desk. There was a line of 2-5 families during this period all of which took turns ringing the bell for service. Perhaps they are just understaffed being the offseason.

Overview Reviews
The closest motel to Mount Rushmore near attractions for children, miniature golf, tram and alpine slides. Heart of Black Hills, walking distance to malls and shops.
5.3 Okay
Pros: 3rd shift staff was very friendly.
Cons: Rooms were VERY out-dated! Carpet on the floor went up the area were you were supposed to put your no safe (aka. clean) place to put your luggage. The carpet, bedding & curtains just left you feeling dirty. Beds were VERY uncomfortable. Would NOT stay here again.
2.8 Mediocre
Pros: Good location to Mt. Rushmore.
Cons: It is a dump. The carpet looks like it's 30+ years old and hasn't been cleaned ever. There was dust built up in the corners of the carpet and a layer on top of the TV cabinet. The walls are so thin that you cannot watch TV at any volume without disturbing your neighbors. Don't bother with the breakfast. They ran out of milk for the cereal, and there wasn't much selection beyond that. The staff was not able to tell me anything about the town or Mt. Rushmore. They advertise that they have wifi, but it doesn't work. I would not recommend this hotel to my enemies.
5.7 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: There was a dusty dead spider and a dusty cheetos, among other things, along the edge of the carpet throughout the room. The blinds across from the bed were so broken they couldn't be used. The impromptu blanket/curtain was not very helpful because it was hard to get to stay up if we wanted any daylight and I constantly thought it was going to fall down and break the curtain rod when adjusting the blanket.
