It's a nice looking hotel. Breakfast was very good. Service was good. Price is normal. But I expected better from there rooms. I've stayed at a lot of Holiday Inn hotels and they vary a lot. The rooms need updated and the ac units need revamped or replaced. Staff is friendly.

Last August, I booked through an online service two rooms at an unknown hotel. Not until paid for the rooms in peak tourism season did I learn we’d stay at Holiday Inn Downtown for about the same price as would have been the Holiday Inn Express off of Interstate 90. I learned hotels in Rapid City that advertise “free breakfast”... More

Horrible stay. No parking lot for guests. Had to walk for blocks to vehicle every time. Cold room. Heat wouldnt work. Noise level over the top. People partying everywhere. The roar was deafening. Forget sleep. Never coming back. Our room did not contain amenities advertised and paid for. Had to special request our frig and microwave.

I stayed here during the Black Hills Stock Show, so the prices may have been higher because of that. Nonetheless, it's a nice place, kind of in the style of an Embassy Suites with a huge open atrium in the middle. That's all fine, except at night the noise from the bar carried through the whole hotel. And those cowboys... More

Our family of four did an overnight at this hotel back in July of 2013. We got in late so I can't comment too much on the room other than it was spacious and the bed seemed to bother my wife's back.
