Clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was delicious! Make your own waffles, hot scrambled eggs with cheese, ham, oatmeal packets, bagels, muffins, bread, yogurt, bananas, fruit juices, coffee, tea. No microwave in the rooms, but there is a microwave in the lobby.

Thumbs up! Good spot

We loved our time at the lodge. TV could be better, but was typical of most hotels. If I could suggest one thing, and it's a minor thing, it would be to upgrade the tp. :)

Seeing part of Mount Rushmore from our room!

India was a delight! She was so friendly and kind!! She deserves a raise!

The lodge was situated in an excellent location. Easy to reach Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse as well as additional sites. The staff was very helpful and answered all questions.

Quiet location, close to the downtown and you can see Mount Rushmore from the hotel

Nice property, clean, great views and quiet. Very convenient and Close to everything.

The location is good. Quiet and beautiful. You can see the face of Washington from your porch, but it is hard to find.

Beautiful property with a beautiful view. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful

Beautiful, peaceful location! Conveniently located to Keystone, Mount Rushmore & other attractions in the Black Hills. Reviews that I read said they have a wonderful continental breakfast. Right now, with COVID, they have a very disappointing take away sack breakfast. I don’t know if it is because of COVID, but the only ice was located at the main lodge. All the other ice machines were out of service, so were all the hot tubs. We were really looking forward to sitting in a hot tub in the evenings. 😔. A pool would be a great addition to this place.

Great location, wonderful staff, great views. Our favorite hotel during our trip.

Great property! If you want beautiful scenery, friendly staff and a location close to everything, this is the place for you!

We have stayed at the K bar S at least 5 times in the last seven years and we usually are quite pleased with everything about the resort. This year for some reason our reservation wasn't correct, we had reserved two rooms , for two nights, one was to be a handicap accessible room upon arrival we were informed we only had the handicap room for one night, this really was a hardship since the person that travels with us is wheelchair bound. This makes selecting K bar S in the future doubtfulo

Very beautiful property and great room. We kept having problems with our keys. One key stopped working and the other took 2 to 5 times using until it opened the door. We were given one new key and another key was reprogramed with the same problem. other than the key issue it was a great stay. Thank the staff for all the hard work.
