Verified Reviews of K Bar S Lodge Ascend Hotel Collection

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Dated Lodge"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our stay there was OK. PROS: 1. Their towels are luscious. 2. Comfy beds 3. Side view of Mount Rushmore. CONS: 1. They built the reception dining hall to block the view of Mount Rushmore while eating at the Cafe. And even if you are eating in the large dining Hall you still can't see Rushmore unless you are right up next to the windows. 2. Morning breakfast buffet is poorly set up. It makes for a very confusing traffic pattern. I heard guests commenting on how tight and squishy it was. 3. When eating outside on the deck the tables are white and reflect intense sun which is unbearable on the eyes. Also no patio umbrellas. 4. Don't wait for the elevator as it will take forever to come up one floor. Just lug your suitcase up and down the stairs. 5. The bathrooms have room for a larger vanity but instead they give you a small vanity making it difficult for everyone to get their junk on the counter.

"Perfect location, excellent staff, happy with breakfast."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Happy with restrictions to make our stay more secure and protected. Would suggest new pillows and nicer towels. Ice machines not working at the time of our visit. Great drinks at the bar. Thanks for all you do to make our stay very pleasant.

"For the price I expected better."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
For the price of my room and knowing what my niece paid for their wedding up there I would think that you could do better. The sack lunch for instance Saturday morning seriously? An apple and cheap granola bar and coffee that came out looking like weak tea? Horrible! We had to drive into Keystone to get breakfast for the attendants.
