Thanks for the review. OK is not OK. We love our guests and you are our central focus. We want every guest to have s great stay. We will always focus our time, money and energy on making our hotel the best it can be for every single guest. I am sorry your bathroom was smaller. We have a few bathrooms that are smaller. We are looking for ways to improve the size and hopefully in the future we will be able to do something to enhance the bathrooms. Love hearing you found our location, 3 minutes from Mount Rushmore to be so close to everything. This is great when you are trying to make the most of your vacation, being able to see so much without having to waste time driving great distances to get to your destination. As you said we are walking distance to activities and restaurants, plus shopping. It also great that we are surrounded by many Black Hills attractions and can reach anyone in less then an hours drive and several in much less time. Thanks for choosing us for your home base when in the Black Hills. Hope you had a blast on your vacation.

We booked this inn for a quick one day trip to Mt. Rushmore. It was me, my husband, our two kids and my mother. The inn is located in Keystone, which is 2 miles from Mt. Rushmore. So location was superb. Pros - First of all the hotel from the outside is charming. Inside there are fantastic quotes by Teddy Roosevelt that are pretty neat to read. We booked the room with the double queen beds and the loft for our kids. The room and hotel were clean which I appreciated. The kids LOVED having their own twin beds in the loft. The beds were typical hotel beds, nothing great but nothing horrible. The kids were able to enjoy the indoor swimming pool, which just to note is very small. Great for kids, but more than 5 or 6 people in it, it would become crowded. We had fun in the game room, with the pool table. The water was hot and the water pressure was great. The breakfast was minimal, but was good and enough to get you on your way. Staff was friendly. Cons - there was no air at all in the game room at all and it was so hot we gave up after 3 games because we were dripping sweat. The games are a bit outdated so the kids were bored quickly and the foosball game was not working. The bathroom in the room is TINY. As in you have to hover over the toilet to close the door. Its workable and honestly, I'm listing it to help others who want to stay here not really to complain. Overall this was a great place to stay. If we ever head back to this area I would gladly book another room!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to write a review, it is gratefully appreciated. Thank you for stating that we are a nice hotel. We tried very hard to be super friendly, provide exceptionally clean comfortable rooms, and provide a unique lodging experience. I'm glad you found your room comfortable and I hope you enjoy our recent remodel. I'm also glad you enjoyed are convenient location, just three minutes from Mount Rushmore, a leisurely stroll too many restaurants, lots of great shopping, and tons of entertainment ... we're right next door to Rushmore Tramway Adventure Park where you can zipline, do the Alpine Slide, face your fears at the jump Tower or play in the aerial Adventure Park. We are so thankful that you stayed with us. There is nothing that honors us more then a guest placing their trust in us for their lodging needs. I sincerely hope you had a great vacation and you'll come back and see us soon.

I absolutely loved this Inn. We had the economy room which was plenty big enough for a one night stop and the room was so impressive. It was very clean, breakfast was excellent and the history here made it even more worth our time. I loved the teddy bear on the bed and the fact that I was able to buy the one that was in our room, making it an even more memorable trip for us.

Thank you for this nice review. We loved to hear you loved the hotel, thank you! I am happy to hear you were impressed by your room and thought it was very clean. We completed our remodel this year and it looks like it was a success. I am happy you enjoyed our breakfast buffet. We have a great selection and we strive to provide something tasty for everyone. I am glad you loved the history and I hoped you enjoyed the many Teddy Roosevelt quotes found throughout the hotel. Our mission is simple, every guest leaves our hotel with a fond memory of their time in Keystone and the Black Hills, and I am so happy to hear you had a memorable stay. We appreciate that you allowed us to be apart of your vacation, it was an honor to be your host.

The staff were very friendly and since I got in at a later time I was the only one checking in so very fast and easy. The parking I felt was not the greatest. In the front of the building there was only a handful of spaces so to check in I just parked in front of the door (not a spot). Then to park to get to my room you had to drive up a one lane driveway around a big turn (they had a mirror) but a very steep hill and get to a back parking lot that let you in on the third floor. The room was clean and nice. I especially enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. I didn’t know how to get to breakfast and wasn’t gonna drive down to the first floor and not have parking so skipped breakfast. Overall the staff was friendly and efficient and the room was clean and nice! For the price it was wonderful!

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experiences. There is an elevator or 2 sets of stairs to take you down to the breakfast area, so sorry you missed our breakfast. Glad you enjoyed the jetted tub. Hope the rest of your trip is great. Safe travels,
