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

Hotel Alex Johnson is excellent. Additionally, a big shout out for Nell who always goes out of her way to help us check in. We have now stayed here 4 times this year with each visit being as good as the last. Great location. Great environment.

This hotel is like a dream - gorgeous "old-timer" like ambience while having all modern facilities. You can tell a lot of effort went into the design and feel of the place. The rooms are cozy and clean with well-stocked bathrooms. My only complaint would be that the walls are rather thin, and you can sometimes hear the neighbours (especially... More

I was traveling through the area, and found this hotel. Nell at the front desk really helped me and told me out about places in the area that I would enjoy. I travel a lot, so she recommended that I enroll in choice privileges. I am excited about the benefits of this program. I would recommend staying at this hotel.... More

This hotel, along with it's historic charm, was an excellent experience and stay. Topping out the experience was the customer service, particularly by the staff at the front desk. Nell and Michelle went over the top to help us find the right room to accommodate our mother so she could see the Christmas parade in comfort. Rarely do you find... More

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
