I would never ever pick this place again. We had ice cold showers. Seemed to me to be a very seedy place. Wish I knew before my stay. We checked out after 1st night, just couldn’t do it.

I can’t. Just don’t go there. You need 50 characters to say don’t go there? Travelocity, what don’t you understand about ‘don’t go there ‘?

The room was outdated and needs updating. Curtains didn't darken the room. Limited TV channels. It was cool to see Mt. Rushmore from the parking lot. Wasn't aware there was a secondary building when booking. Overpriced!

Hotel management is terrible

Pros: Location was convenient to local tourist sites and Keystone.
Cons: Swimming pool and hot tub were both empty of water during the only time of the year that could be used for swimming.
Location: Location is close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Needles and Custer.
To Whom It May Concern, On August 2 -9, 2015 we stayed at the Travelodge in Keystone, South Dakota. The hotel has a great location near tourist attractions of interest to us. I must be clear that I do not like controversy nor arguments. So the letter that I’m writing is not something I normally would do. But I am more dissatisfied with my stay at the Travelodge than I have ever been before at any hotel. Our confrontation with the hotel manager basically ruined our vacation. On Tuesday, August 4 I noticed that our sheets had not been changed. I went into the main office and asked if the sheets could be changed. I was told it was the hotel’s policy to change the sheets every 2-3 days. I was told that I needed to place a card on my pillow to indicate that I wish to have the sheets changed. That day I put the card on the pillow when we left and the sheets had not been changed when we returned. In addition, the bathroom was not clean. I went back to the office and asked if the sheets could be changed. The hotel manager, Chrissie, was noticeably disturbed by my request to have the sheets changed. She said they were short-staffed and she actually cleaned our room herself, and she then said there was no card on the pillow. I argued that the card was on the pillow when we left, but she insisted there was no card on the pillow. At this point I realized that she was reluctant or unwilling to give attention to our request which was not unreasonable.

Nice hotel

We ended up in the handicap room but had a big bathroom, shower was different but it all worked out. It was comfortable & clean. Close to shopping & restaurant. The food was great too. Enjoyed our stay.

Mt . Rushmore

Nice hotel. Small but enough room to sleep. Not really large enough for a gathering, but served our purpose. Clean and good air conditioning. Great view Mt. Rushmore right off our deck. Priced good for size. Breakfast was not impressive but we were there almost at close. Very small area to try to eat. Cereal mostly was all that was left so ate it in our room. I would still recommend.

Dump near Mt. Rushmore

Pros: Location down the street from Mt. Rushmore was great
Cons: Everything
Location: Lots to do in this area - but stay in another hotel.
Arrived to find no parking - half of the parking lot for the hotel has been converted to an RV Campground. Had to park in the grass down the street. Room was very small. Room had a funk mildew smell. Bed was horrible. Paid for three nights but left after one because it was so bad.
