Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of place is the Roosevelt Inn?
We're a small family owned and operated hotel in Keystone, SD. We are not apart of a large chain of hotels like other Mount Rushmore hotels, and our emphasis is on clean and comfortable rooms at moderate prices. Our rooms have all the modern conveniences: private baths, heat and air conditioning, satellite TV, direct dial phones, coffee makers and more! We also have a pool, family recreation room and a guest laundry.

How big is your pool?
The Roosevelt Inn pool is 30 feet long and 14 feet wide. The pool is a great size for small children and families, but it is not large enough to lap swim.
Do you offer free breakfast?
Of course we do! You need to fuel up for your Black Hills adventures, so stop by our breakfast room before you head out for the day.
Where can I eat in Keystone?
During the height of tourist season, Keystone has about a dozen restaurants that are within walking distance of the Roosevelt Inn. There's not much in the way of fast food nearby. None of the burger chains are located in or even near Keystone. Ask our staff for suggestions!
Can you see Mount Rushmore from your rooms?
You can see the mountain from many of our rooms, but the faces are below the tree line. This is true for almost all properties in Keystone and Mount Rushmore hotels. Unfortunately, some Keystone, SD hotels imply that you can see the faces on Mount Rushmore from their rooms, but these claims are misleading.
Do you allow (pets?) (smoking?) (children?)
The Roosevelt Inn does allow small, well-behaved pets ($15.00 per night,. per pet), and they must be declared at booking. No more than one pet may be kept in a room, and management reserves the right to refuse service to some pets. Please clear your pet before booking.
We are a completely smoke-free facility. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the Roosevelt Inn property.
Please bring your kids to the Roosevelt Inn! Children 16 years old and younger stay free.
How far are you from ___________? (fill in the blank)
Nothing in the Black Hills is more than an hour's drive away from the Keystone, SD hotels. Devil's Tower and the Badlands are somewhat further, but not much. The boundary to Mount Rushmore is just a quarter mile away and the visitor center is up on the mountain about two miles. Custer State Park is about three miles as the crow flies, but since most visitors aren't crows, they will need to drive about 12 miles. Crazy Horse is about 17 miles. Rapid City is about 29 miles to the Interstate. Deadwood is 52 miles up the Black Hills Parkway.
