I had an excellent experience at the Alex Johnson Hotel. The ghost tour was a blast. I probably wouldn't have come to the hotel if it weren't for this interesting history. Savoy was a great tour guide telling us many of the spooky stories in the hotel.

We recently stayed at Hotel Alex Johnson while attending an event in Rapid City. We had several hotel options but went with this one because of location. We were right in downtown Rapid City and walking distance from several shops and restaurants. Our service was EXCELLENT! I'm used to hauling my own luggage into the hotel and parking the car,...

Great historical place. Center of downtown Rapid City. Comfortable beds and great service. Would stay here again, just wish the bathrooms were bigger. Friendly staff and many bars and restaurants in the area

Very nice historic hotel with a terrific rooftop restaurant and bar. Absolutely perfect location right downtown. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The lobby, with it's inviting fireplace and comfortable seating, was a perfect place to relax and read. The exercise room was better than expected. The Irish pub downstairs, Paddy O'Neil's, was a BLAST! The hotel staff were... More

The hotel is comfortable, cozy and rustic. Great place for a great price. I would especially like to thank Andrew on staff the night we arrived. He was attentive and helpful the moment we pulled up. Things were a bit hectic with our luggage, truck and trailer and dogs...he immediately helped to ease our load and get us situated much... More

This place has charm! The lobby has a huge stone fireplace, and a fire. Bison head on the wall with a vaulted ceiling. I can't even believe how inexpensive it is. We checked in and had some very loud seemingly intoxicated neighbors, and Bryce at the front desk was great. He checked us into another room on the 7th floor... More

The Suite is very relaxing and a great place to unwind after a long day. The Kitchen, dining room and living room provide for a very comfortable experience. The bedroom were spacious and well designed. Having two bathrooms for three bedrooms made it very easy to get everyone ready in the morning. The view is amazing in the room as... More

This is the oldest operating hotel in Rapid City and was witness to some of the most significant events in the regions history. When U.S. Presidents visit the hills, they generally stayed here. That being said, do not expect modern accommodations. Rooms are rather small and bathrooms smaller. Walk down the street to eat - not great food here. They... More
