"Very nice atmosphere and conveniently located."
We visited Mt Rushmore during the off season in December. Even though many of the local businesses were closed for the season the hotel staff was helpful with restaurants and shops that were open. They were exceptionally friendly and made every effort to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The off season rates were surprisingly lower than I expected and the hotel décor is beautiful.

Very good experience. Location is 2 miles from Mt. Rushmore, a block from downtown Keystone's shops, and very handy as a base camp for the Black Hills. Clean, well-designed rooms. Nice, big bathrooms with plenty of towels. Pool is big enough to swim laps! Especially enjoyed the woman who served breakfast. She was always smiling, very complimentary, and a joy to see every morning when we walked in with bleary eyes. Please thank her again for us. All staff very kind and cheerful. Will certainly return if we are able to vacation in the area again.

The gals at the desk were so informative and friendly. My husband needed a more comfortable chair in the room and they brought a chair up to our room. We could not do much walking so the girls advised us to Mount Rushmore, the Needles drive, and Spearfish canyon. We really enjoyed the scenery!! Also, the hot breakfast, especially the warm cinnamon rolls, were wonderful each morning! We really enjoyed the hospitality!!

I would definitely stay here again! P.S. we ate lunch at Cruizzers and was not disappointed.

"Perfect Hotel for Exploring Black Hills & Badlands"
We stayed 8 nights and enjoyed every minute. The location of the hotel is strategically perfect for day drives to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Blackhills, Custer State Park, and even Devil's Tower Wyoming. There are many other places that are possible as well. The staff at this hotel (especially B---y) made us feel like family. Always a pleasant greeting, and going out of their way to make our stay comfortable. No hesitation to recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Keystone, SD.

"Nice hotel, close to Mount Rushmore"
We stayed here four nights, and used it as a base to see Mount Rushmore, Custer National Park, the Badlands. The room layout was good, plenty of space, but our room was dark and the decor was dark. I thought the bed was comfortable enough, but my companion complained about the mattress. We agreed that the sheets seemed worn and of low quality. The front desk staff was excellent--room ready on time, gave good driving directions and advice about routes, good meal recommendations. The breakfast was OK, and the breakfast staff worked hard to keep items replenished and tables cleaned. We did pay quite a bit more for our room than nearby hotels were advertising--not sure whether the quality was the same.

We appreciate you taking the time to review our property. We are centrally located in the Black Hills for all your attractions. We apologize if your room was too dark, and it varies depending on which side of the hotel you are on. The street side does get more sun exposure. We have been going threw our linens with our laundry staff and will continue to do so and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Our new breakfast bar staff really hustles when it gets busy, and are on top of everything. We do apologize if any part of your stay did not meet your expectations. We hope this won't deter you from visiting us again, and we appreciate all the feedback you and your family have provided.
