... the first and second time were the charm, too! That's why I stayed here again on my third road trip from East to West. Rapid City wasn't logically even the best place for me to stop for the night ... probably should have kept it up a few more hours, but love this hotel so much. Sure thing, walked... More

We are new to the West, wanted to take a weekend away and figured why not visit Mount Rushmore. After some research we came across the Hotel Alex Johnson in Rapid City and decided to book it for the weekend.

We absolutely loved this Hotel!! The staff were super friendly, especially Nell and Michelle the receptionists who were a breath of fresh air!! The rooms were comfortable and well furnished, the decor and accessories around the hotel were wonderful and fascinating. The Chubby Chipmunk chocolate shop was too tempting as was the coffee shop in the reception hall. The roof... More

We stayed here one night on the way to Iowa. It was June and we'd hit a number of extreme storms so we were a bit travel worn when we rolled in. Our room was a corner room from heaven. Bed was super comfy. Furnishings and ambience was awesome. The restaurant bar on the top floor furnished all we needed... More

I was pleasantly surprise by the Valet at the front door offering to park my car as I was traveling alone. Thank you for great service I checked in around 3:30pm Dec.30, 2014. Nell was wonderful and enjoys her job to the enth degree! She went above and beyond for me and my requests. The mid-week room rate was fantastic... More

My family and I loved our stay at the Hotel Alex Johnson! We drove from Minneapolis and were pleasantly surprised by this boutique gem of a hotel in Rapid City. The hotel rooms had all been recently remodeled and were lovely. The bar on top of the hotel is fantastic! We arrived the day after Christmas and totally enjoyed the... More

Nell at the front desk helped us have a great haunting experience. We found high ghost ratings like I've never seen before! Room 804 is crazy... I would defiantly come back to this hotel. The rooms were nice, except the shower heads are a little low!
