The staff was very friendly when you walked in to the hotel. The rooms were large for my family of 4 and clean and the beds were comfortable. Again another Holiday Inn with poor WiFi service in the rooms, it works great in the hallways and common area bus poor in the rooms. When traveling with two kids, movies on... More

You will get just what you expect here. Nothing really stood out good or bad, which is what I wanted for this trip. It was a bit disapointing that they don't have a fitness area. I would stay here again, but this likely won't be my first choice.

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Rushmore and doing the tourist thing. Although, we didn't spend much time at the hotel because we were out seeing the sights, it was very nice. The hotel is only about 15 minutes from Keystone and about 20 minutes from Rushmore. If you have smaller children, definitely go visit Storybook Island as it... More

Clean hotel, friendly staff, great continental breakfast & an affordable price! A nice location close to downtown. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in the area! Would be ideal for a family visit. Pool area looked inviting-didn't get to use it, but I would have!

Why it was more expensive than the one in Buffalo - why was and remains a mystery at $115.93 in mid-May. Perhaps it was due to this being in an apparently huge sprawling City, with a non-too-appealing vista - the City that is ! No idea either. Easy to get to, get into City Centre for a decent Restaurant -... More

I recently stayed at this property. I won't again. The initial interaction with the reservation desk was not good - - certainly no desire to be helpful. The breakfast area was dirty - - tables not wiped and no one else in the eating area. The chairs are quite disgusting. It would be a simple matter of steam cleaning them... More

Recently stayed here for five nights in one of their family rooms. This is a nice hotel in a great location, with friendly and helpful staff. The room we had was very comfortable and quiet and the complimentary breakfast is more than adequate to get you started in the morning. The pool area was clean and it was nice to... More

Just spent 3 nights here during a tour of Wyoming and South Dakota. This is a lovely hotel in an excellent location. The rooms were lovely with tea and coffee making facilities. The gym was very small but was fine and the swimming pool was fantastic. We enjoyed breakfast and thought the selection of omelletes, cinnamon rolls, bananas, muffins, etc,... More

I'm IHG Elite and have stayed in more HIX properties than most. Accommodations are fine, wide hallways, comfy bed, great indoor pool and hot tub. Usual HIX morning spread. Be warned the parking lot can only be accessed by a side alley. You will have a very difficult time with a trailer or motor home! I strongly suggest running thru... More
