I have stayed at Ramkotas in Pierre, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls, and this seems to be the best. Yes, shows it age a little around the edges but my room was recently redone and very comfortable and quiet. At a $100/night not a great value, but for about the same price in Aberdeen you could be in a Super... More

The very least a hotel can do is provide a very clean, well ordered room...but this hotel failed at that. I found a dirty sock and crumbs *in plain site.* The lamp was unplugged--How hard is it for the staff to check lights in the room? The bathtub was dirty and the door stuck when opening/closing. To get the room... More

A typical older convention / meeting hotel that's currently undergoing much needed renovation. Dark decor must be depressing in winter. It's located a bit outside the downtown area. Admittedly, our newly redone room was nice and worked for our needs. There's a big pool with play area for the kiddies. Beware - no breakfast included! The attached restaurant doesn't open... More

We found this to be the typical big business hotel. It was clean and comfortable and everything in working order-- the only drawback for us was that there was no breakfast served, (although there was a restaurant on the property). I always feel that the breakfast helps to offset the price of the hotel.

When checking in, the front desk staff greeted me and were very helpful. My room was perfect. It was quiet, furnished well, and was very relaxing. The bed is incredible. It is tempting to stay another night to relax a bit more. But have to go. Thank you for the great stay in Aberdeen. I will be back next May... More

We stayed at this property over the weekend during a family reunion at Storybook Land. One of the best features of this property is the large spacious guest rooms. The pool area is great for small children and young teens. The pool area was very warm and humid so parents who are watching little ones should dress comfortably. The downside... More

I had traveled through Aberdeen many times, but never stayed at the Ramkota. It has been there for a long time, and I was pleasantly surprised at the accomodations.

This was a wonderful motel/hotel to stay in. We stayed here about 2 yrs ago and because of our happiness with that stay, we decided to stay here again. Everything was wonderful. Wonderful people to assist us, clean, accommodating rooms. Breakfast was the best!
