The hotel is working on modernizing the facilities, but they have more work to do. The bathrooms were very dated and the bathroom fan sounded liked a helicopter. I did mention my dissatisfaction upon checkout, and the clerk did say that they were replacing all bathroom fans soon. My other complaint was having to use a step stool to adjust... More

Clean room and friendly people at the front desk. Getting into the parking lot was a little confusing because of construction, but not the hotel's fault. Overall great stay and would definitely book this place again if I'm in the area!

Honestly, I was expecting a little more given the ratings. I was thinking it was going to be on par with a Super8... very basic but clean and maintained. That's not what it is. Its old, needs a good cleaning and paint job (and some new furniture) just to bring it up to 'basic'. Alas, it was inexpensive and the... More

The beds were comfortable and the staff nice, but we had several problems in our room. AC unit was missing dial to adjust it, deadbolt didn't work, sink leaked, and there were loose tiles in the bathroom. For the price though, it wasn't too bad.

We stayed here 2 nights. Was surprised to find a clean and comfy bed considering some of the reviews. Kudos to them for trying to update a bit. We had a king bed and our room was very spacious. Lots more channels on the tv than most places we have stayed. Breakfast was pretty decent with fresh fruit, yogurt, juice,... More

We came on a Thursday and stayed one night. It was not impressive. The parking lot was full of potholes and was dirty with trash and cigarette butts. The room was clean but very cramped. There was a tiny sheer curtain on the window. Right outside there was a giant light shining directly into the window. We had to hang... More

Looks old on the outside but is a great deal considering the price of hotels in the area. Clean rooms with microwave and fridge. Would stay here again. Outlets in room need replaced. A light breakfast is served but not until 7 a.m. office closes from 11 pm til 7 am.

Didn't even make it into a room! Had reservation - left wife and daughter in car when I went to check in. Another guest was in lobby demanding a room change - carpet not down right and general incompleteness of things in room. Staff said it was under repair but new guy behind counter seemed really embarrassed about the whole... More

Our room was repainted, new carpet, nice flat screen tv (remote didn't work but was able to resolve that with front desk without issue), did not smell bad or musty and was for the most part clean. Some issues we noticed included: one bed comforter blanket had what appeared to be a footprint of loose dirt and debris and some... More

I stay at this hotel twice a month and I've never had a bad experience. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean, especially when compared to similar price points. I would recommend M Star if you are planning a Rapid City stay.
