We visited second week in September 2014, the room on the 4th floor was good, but the windows were drafty and the room was cold at night, there were no adequate blankets, apart from a light one, the central heating was blasting cold and warm air alternatively, so I had to switch it off every 20 minutes, wait and turn...

Rapid City has a great historical hotel-with pub--roof top restaurant--starbucks and historical character. I have not eaten at the "fine dining" roof top restaurant--but having a drink up there is nice, and the cafe across the street is really great--by any standards (even metropolitan NYC)--Silver spoon is the name. Each year we make a stop in RC to see friends... More

The historic Alex Johnson hotel is nicely located in the bustling downtown area in Rapid City, SD. It is a beautiful building with a nicely kept interior. Rooms are pleasant and well kept. Starbucks is located inside, on the main level, for that morning cup of Joe. There is a pub located there as well with servers that are pleasant... More

My wife and I stayed for a recent holiday party. Not only was the party great, the food, atmosphere, staff, and room was outstanding. We will most certainly be back again so. If you're in the area it's a must see.

We stayed for 3 days when we visited Mt. Rushmore this past summer. The hotel was easy to find on a busy street downtown, parking to unload bags was a bit difficult. The room was nicely decorated & clean--BUT--the bathroom was so small you could sit on the commode, brush your teeth AND put one foot in the shower all... More

Over thanksgiving weekend my wife and I stayed in room 812 at the Alex Johnson. 812 has been reported to be haunted, I've always wanted to stay in a haunted hotel and it was such a great weekend. The hotel is beautiful, great food at both the pub downstairs and the skybar on the 10th floor. I do want to... More

Great hotel, excellent service, great staff. Nell at the front desk was especially helpful and very accommodating. She managed to get into some great rooms at the same price we paid the last time we were in town.

This historical hotel has an old style feel to it in the common spaces. It is connected to a small Irish bar which is convenient. Nice location as its right in the middle of the city and within walking distance of the downtown attractions. The only dislike was the size of the room which was very small and not what... More
