This place has amazing rooms and comfortable beds! The service is fairly awesome also. We forgot our tooth brushes and they ran some up to my wife and I. Pretty impressive. The hotel's history is also awesome. We were hoping to see a ghost but no dice this time. If you have a chance to stay here definitely check it... More

My husband, granddaughter and myself stayed in a junior suite in October 2014, due to a family wedding in downtown Rapid City,SD. The suite was small, dirty, no ventilation and definitely overpriced. I reserved this suite as it was rated with many stars and the photos on the website were beautiful. I was really disappointed and I will never stay... More

Wow. Got snowed in during the storm on the 10th and flights were cancelled. asked the agent which hotels in town had an airport shuttle, and she gave me a list. I decided to take the Hotel Alex Johnson because it was downtown and I know I could get some cool snow pictures. A couple people in the shuttle (... More

My wife and I were here for a quick stay business/personal and the front desk employee Brooke was very helpful and went above and beyond to make things work out for us. The people in this establishment are super professional and friendly. I look forward to coming back very soon.

Stayed for a few days, and everything was great. Had some travel issues that kept me an extra night. Brooke and Nell at the front desk were both very friendly and helpful! The rooms were very nice, and with the shuttle, it was convenient to get to the airport.

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel in August. They offer a free shuttle from the airport which was fantastic as I got in late and was very convenient - you just ask at the taxi/shuttle desk when you get off the plane. I found the staff to be excellent. I had a medical episode and needed help so rang... More

Loved the character of the hotel. The room was clean. We had everything that we needed. For the most part the staff was helpful and polite (Some of the other guests were rather rude). We were there for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay!
