The location is good. The hotel room was smelly and the carpet in the hall and in the room was dirty/old? Needs new flooring, also shower leaked and the toilet ran constantly. In dire need of some TLC.

A great hotel, in an awesome location!

Pros: The beds are very comfortable, and the pool/hot tub are wonderful.
Cons: The only negative is that the breakfast area is small, so make sure you get there early.
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, and the location of the hotel is superb. You are within walking distance of the Keystone strip of shops, restaurants, and the train station. Also, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse are fairly close, by car.

Nice rooms close to mt rushmore.

Clean rooms with nice amenities-exercise room, pool. Breakfast was a little disappointing. No plain cream, half n half or creamer for coffee. No microwave to make the oatmeal. No good fresh fruit.

Nice hotel close to Mount Rushmore

Nice hotel & very close to Mount Rushmore but if you go on the off season the town is completely closed down. Hotel had a decent breakfast & would recommend staying if looking for a place in that area.

Great location...at the end of a street and can walk to town

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, helicopters took off nearby
I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn...staff was very accomidating since I broke my leg before booking the Inn they offered a lower floor. My only negatives were the room we stayed in had a so-so working air conditioner, no in room refridgerator and there was no ice machine on the 3rd floor where we stayed. The breakfast was great...staff kept all foods plentiful...never ran out.

Room was to noisy

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, unfriendly staff
We stayed on the second floor near the stair case. We were there for two days. There was a thumping sound almost all night every night. It seemed as if someone was bouncing a ball, running back and forth or perhaps there were workers above us. We didn't enjoy the stay. Staff personnel seemed to be cold and detached. They don't go out of their way to make you feel welcomed.
