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.

Hot tubs were out of service. 😒 coffee etc available all day in lobby 😊 included breakfast was excellent 😊

Great property, nice spacious room, amazing breakfast included!

This is a neat little place. A great alternative to a traditional hotel. I would have liked it more if there had been a gym or pool, but by no means did that detract from this wonderful place.

The pictures online are a bit deceiving. It seems like it's a boutique hotel but in reality it's several mediocre buildings that resemble more of a roadside type motel. Overall it's a great location, the la escape and view of the mountains is nice. The room was mostly clean it just didn't feel 100% right or relaxing. The carpet was filthy. The front desk staff were cordial but not that friendly or outgoing. The breakfast was just ok, I mean I'm grateful it's included don't get me wrong. Overall I probably wouldn't recommend this one.
