Roosevelt Inn Amenities and Services


Although the Roosevelt Inn borrows its look from a time when Theodore Roosevelt was President, there is nothing historical about our facilities or amenities. The Roosevelt Inn is one of the most modern Keystone, SD hotels with up-to-date guest rooms and suites, an indoor heated swimming pool, a family game room and a guest laundry.

The hotel has wide interior halls, quiet guest rooms and modern fire-resistant construction. There are fire sprinklers and smoke detectors in every room. All public areas are handicapped accessible and served by an elevator.

As experienced travelers know, thoughtful design and quality construction are only starting points when is comes to making a place special. We think the special ingredient is that the hotel is family owned and operated. Family members are "on site" and take an active hand in all phases of the hotel operation. Out of all Mount Rushmore hotels, this is the only one that is still family owned and operated.

We Are Here For You

Because we are a small, family owned and operated hotel, our guests are never just room numbers. Everybody on our staff will always take the time to listen to your comments, give you information and try to accommodate your special requests. Everybody who works at the Roosevelt Inn lives nearby and we're all knowledgeable about the Hills. Feel free to ask us about things to do and local history. Beyond that, we're always willing to do what we can to meet your needs.

No matter how much fun you have in the hotel, even more recreational opportunities abound in the surrounding hills and forests, whether it's sightseeing at Mount Rushmore, hiking to the top of majestic Black Elk Peak (Formerly Harney Peak), taking a trail ride on horseback or simply picnicking beside a cool mountain stream. There are so many recreational activities in the Black Hills for you and your family to enjoy!


Mountain Views -- Many guest rooms and all suites have views of the mountains surrounding Keystone. Roughly half the rooms face west, looking toward Mount Rushmore itself, the peaks of which are visible. (The faces, however, are not visible from our hotel, nor are they visible from most other places in Keystone.)

In-Room TV -- We have basic cable (satellite) channels,, the major networks and CNN. Some rooms include DVD players as well.

Modern Air Conditioned and Heated Rooms -- Each guestroom has individual comfort controls for both heating and air conditioning.
