This hotel is in a great location and has a lot of character...BUT its a little overpriced for the quality of room you get. The bed was great but the bathroom was outdated and in parts disrepair. We needed a pet friendly hotel and this one of only a few options - we would likely only stay again for the... More

A charming city hotel of style and grace. Older but in excellent condition. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not much for in-hotel restaurants but the downtown of Rapid City is close and charming... We would definitely stay there again...

We really enjoyed our stay! Our room was nicely appointed, clean, and bright. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rates were reasonable and the location can't be beat. It's across the street from the town square and tons of restaurants and shops, super convenient. And the rooftop bar gave a fantastic view of downtown - we really enjoyed it.... More

I stayed at the hotel on 8/26/14 in order to be closer to the airport and to be able to explore downtown Rapid City. The property is beautiful and the desk attendants were quite helpful. The room however had a horrible odor and we discovered someone's soured clothes in the closet. Housekeeping removed them as we requested and we opened... More

The lobby was beautiful, but I got a very distinct impression this was a "hip" hang out for very young 20 something's, which my husband and I are not. The parking situation is not ideal at all. Park in a structure a block away or pay a valet $10 to do it for you. The toilet seat in our bathroom... More

Had a great week long stay at the AJ. Started off a little rough with some reservation problems but the staff stepped up and moved my luggage to a better suite while I was at work during the day. I had a great corner room with a nice city view. I did have some issues at the roof top bar... More

The charm and character of this historic hotel are attractive. The lobby is amazing and filled with historic details. The third and fourth floors are rumored to be haunted. Yes, we had an experience that left us with a lasting memory. The rooms are very, very small and the bath could use updating. The rooftop bar is a MUST SEE... More

The front desk staff was very friendly. The bell staff was very friendly as well. There was a stack of dirty, soiled room service plates and cutlery from the room next to me which stayed sitting on a bench in the hallway for more than 24hrs with food remnants. It was pretty disgusting walking to and from the room knowing... More

We booked a suite at this hotel, as we were traveling with our daughters. They are always thrilled to have their own room and bathroom, making the trip more enjoyable for everyone. The suite was well appointed and very comfortable. Everything was clean. The location of the hotel is excellent, and close to everywhere we wanted to go.
