As a chain-designated "Plus" facility, one at least expects service comparable to other facilities in the chain......... I can't recall the last time I've encountered absolutely RUDE people at the front desk; I might've been better off to just leave then. But, I made reservation online, it was late in the day and I thought I'm only here for 1... More

Thank you for your response. I am very sorry for the service you encountered at the front desk. I will speak with the front desk manager and the desk clerk that evening. This should not happen. I am sorry that someone misled you by telling you that our facility is a plus unfortunately we are not. Again, I apologize for... More

Beautiful location with swimming pool, fitness center and free bikes to ride along the MO River. I was extremely satisfied with the hotel, staff and restaurant. If you are ever in Pierre, SD I do recommend this hotel for your stay.

I stayed here on a business trip to the area. I reserved online prior to coming out and checking in took less than a minute and was quick and easy. The room was very clean, laid out nicely and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom was quite small but functional. The shower head worked well, which was a plus, stayed in... More

The hotel is very nice with an indoor pool, meeting room and restaurant. It is all decorated very tastefully. I really liked that the room had an inside door and an outside door. It made loading and unloading the car much easier. The restaurant had a wonderful breakfast special that was delicious. Betty was great in taking and getting our... More

This hotel is pretty nice. The staff is friendly but the rooms are a bit pricey for my Per Diem. We got a special rate because of our corporate deal which helps a bit. The AC unit worked well but it is noisy (show me a wall unit that is not though). Also the AC gets a strange smell after... More

Unlike other Ramkota properties where I've stayed, the Pierre facilities left me with the impression that the hotel management was on vacation. Small items like burned out light bulbs throughout the property, tattered pool towels. There was no hostess in the restaurant / lounge, it was unclear if the restaurant side was open (it was not) and if to be... More

It is one of the few places in Pierre that can accommodate large meetings, which was why I was there. Even so, the hotel is large and was fairly empty during my stay. The room was noisy, not because of people but because of the sounds of running water through the pipes, flushing toilets & showers in the rooms around... More

We were extremely pleased with our stay; we arrived late in the evening after a long day of motorcycle touring...our room was ready, assigned and key cards in envelope. The desk gentleman asked if we'd eaten, suggested a place and directed us to parking and our room...fast and pleasant. The room was great....very good value. The Harley Owners Group Program... More

We were asking about a nice place to stay over night on our way to Deadwood on a motorcycle trip. A lady in a neighboring town suggested this hotel. She was right on the mark. Hotel was clean and beds comfortable. Restaurant was good. We would stay there again.
