Holiday Inn Express & Suites Mt. Rushmore

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Only a few miles from Mt. Rushmore so excellent location. Keystones is a small town, so keep that in mind. Rapid city is only 20 miles away. Only one restaurant open when I stayed in March. It was right next door to the hotel which was nice. They were unfortunately out of a good bit of their breakfast, but since it's free I can't really complain.

good place....................................................................................................

Beautiful hotel, very knowledgeable about local activities. Very clean, good breakfast. We look forward to coming back.

The location was outstanding! Near Mt Rushmore, easy access to all local attractions, and the room was nice. Our beds were comfortable and breakfast was convenient. The pool felt a bit off with the chemicals and the hot tub was at 105 degrees the whole time. Our kids were unusually irritated by the pool water, and the adults could not enjoy the hot tub fully because it was too hot.

Everyone at the hotel were really helpful and very knowledgeable about the area.

We were glad we could get to our hotel quickly. Close to food and shopping.

My teenage daughters and I enjoyed our stay so much we hated to leave. My daughters enjoyed the pool while I soaked in the hot tub. Our room was very clean and the breakfast was one of the best we've had in any of the places we've stayed.

Average for the price, nothing over the too. Extrodinary and helpful staff. Nicest hotel in area and very close to attractions. Unfortunately, 35-40 minutes away from city.

Stayed for a night in February and received a great off-season rate; nice free breakfast; room was large and comfortable

This was a very nice place to stay during our trip to South Dakota. Our room was clean and quiet, and Keystone is a lovely historic town that is centrally located to other attractions in the area.

Parking- Need more guest parking and less employee parking!

We came to see Mt Rushmore and for a fall get away trip. The lobby was cozy and enjoyable which helped because the weather was unpleasant. The rooms met out needs, and all in all the hotel was good. However, there was a clerk who made an error with the booking. We noticed this after we had left, called and had friendly service and they made the correction without problems.

It was awesome being so close to Mt Rushmore. Hotel was clean and easy to access.

This hotel maintains our previous experiences with this chaine and therefore will keep Holiday Inn Express and Suites on our shortlist of hotel options when traveling!

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.

The hotel is very nice and also the small town where is near the Rushmore national park and Custer state park

The inn was clean and quiet. It's 5 minutes away from Mt. Rushmore. Hot tub was very good as well.

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.

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.

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