Nice hotel in downtown Rapid City with plenty of restaurant's with in a few minutes drive. Easy drive in from the airport, took about fifteen minutes. Breakfast was good in the mornings with omelets and good coffee. I found my room to be clean and a peaceful atmosphere. I liked the waterfall in the lobby it is nice.

Comfortable and affordable for a quick business stay. Good bar and resteraunt available. Hotel is a few miles off the interstate but still convenient. I would suggest the hotel starts hot coffee earlier in the morning as i checked out at 5:30 a.m. and the front desk informed me that they didnt make coffee that early. Overall great stay.

Planned a trip to stay in Rapid City for the weekend to see a Rapid City Rush game for the first time. The room was perfect, comfy king size bed and very clean. Was the perfect place to stay being so close to the convention center. I will be staying at this hotel the next time I am in town.

Only issue is that their must have been a convention or party going on as it was very noisy all night long. Also someone pulled the fire alarm in the basement waking all of us up at 4:45 to evacuate... More

Nice stay at the Holiday Inn in Rapid City. Nice location that is close the Civic Center and it makes a nice place to stay after a Rush Hockey game. The pool area was clean and the rooms appear to be recently updated.

Every year in December, I travel to Rapid City for a business workshop. The workshop is typically held elsewhere, but I prefer to stay at the Holiday Inn Rushmore Plaza. Rooms are clean; staff is hospitable. Monday, December 15th had a local youth choir singing holiday music which was delightful. Thanks for a great stay!
