Great Location - Creepy Vibe

We arrived late in the evening at this hotel, about a week out of tourist season. This hotel is great while "in season", but you will need to make your way to Rapid City for any bars, gas stations, restraunts, or conveniences. The first thing we noticed about this place, though, is the creepy vibe you get. I'm not entirely sure how to explain it - maybe it was the emptiness of the entire town being out of season.

A Pleasant Surprise

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Keystone during the off season...was one of three guests in the hotel that night. When we arrived we got upgraded to a king suite which was great! The decor in the hotel is so fun! Really emphasizes the location. Most of the businesses close in the off season, but we were able to dine right next door at a local pub (Barlee's) - also very good. Hot breakfast was served in the morning...I got up super early and cozied up in the lobby with coffee and food. Very homey! My experience was in the off season, so I'm sure it would be slightly different during peak months. However, I must say I fell in love with Keystone and can't wait to go back! Will definitely stay at Holiday Inn Express when I do :)

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Don't pay to go into Mount Rushmore, just drive by...you can get beautiful views from the road. Save your money for Crazy Horse - it is a must see! Worth the $11 per person. Such an unexpected/inspirational experience! Money well spent, and it all goes to fund the project. I can't wait to go back! I love Keystone!

Keystone stay

The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable and there was nothing more that we needed. The location to Mt. Rushmore was perfect.....you couldn't get any closer.

Keystone

Our room was clean and quiet. The location was walking distance to Boardwalk and train. Short drive to Mt Rushmore - 5 minutes. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

Old, small hotel

Not at all up to the Holiday Inn standards we are used to. The hotel is very outdated and needs to be repaired.
