We were in Rapid City to visit the Black Hills. Being a Priority Club member we stay mostly at the Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels. This was clean but a bit noisy, the breakfast was different each day we were there. Bathroom could have been a bit more updated, but the bed and pillows were comfortable. Price about... More

Very high price for a VERY average Holiday Inn Express. No fridge in room, that's $8 a night extra. Left after one night because I found a much cheaper hotel just down the road. It's 25 minutes from Mount Rushmore, but I will drive a little further to save a lot of money.

We understand the price hike for summer in Rapid City, unfortunately that is just how it goes. That being said the hotels was nice and clean. The hotel staff did an excellent job getting a room situation fixed. I accidentally booked a smoking room and they helped us into another room even though they were quiet full. There was a... More

I waited a few days to write this review because I want to be fair. Staying here made me want to cancel all the rest of my Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express reservations for the rest of my two week driving vacation because it was so awful. I didn't cancel the future reservations, and I've waited until I spent... More

Like some others have said, nothing good or bad really stood out here. If you are not on the top floor and you have heavy walkers and/or children above you, you will know that. The hotel is a little pricey if you don't qualify for some sort of discount rate, considering the location. We enjoyed not being in the middle... More

Overnight stay for business. The hotel and room were clean. The staff were helpful. It is nice that they serve breakfast. It is well stocked. There were obviously children on the floor above as they could be heard running back and forth across the floor. Everything worked well, I am always happy when he bed is comfortable, esp. with extra... More

Bringing my complaints in my previous review to the attention of the hotel manager the morning I checked out, resulted in a significant adjustment to my bill. That was appreciated but I still would have preferred paying full price for a trouble free stay.

This place is old. The floors are noisy. I can hear every step of the people above me. I paid $160 a night for something that is only worth 1/2 of that in my opinion. The pool is fine and clean. No hot tub. The internet works well. I wouldn't stay here again.

We have been staying at the HI on Cathedral Drive every year for 14 years so I know of what I speak when I say that this property has gone from being an exceptional value to an overpriced underwhelming experience. The primary reason for our visits is official business; my wife is a teacher visiting her students doing summer clinicals.... More

What can I say. Ordinary Holiday Inn Express. Weird that's it behind Exxon station. Room clean. They upgraded us to a suite with a Whirlpool Tub in the living room. Room had a smell to it. Wife said musty. I not sure. Would stay there again.
