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.

I booked a room and they put me in a room at the back row of units overlooking a dilapidated dried up water feature. The room reeked of smoke and was ratty looking. The next room they gave me was equally ratty and the wall mounted a/c unit cover fell off and hit me in the head thus revealing a... More

M-Star Rapid City is basically a basic motel with a basic setup - nothing special. Two things that i did appreciate: 1) the Colonial House Restaurant & Bar that is within walking distance of the motel. Price point was a bit on the high side considering it's Rapid City, but the food was tasty. Especially after the drive from Denver.... More

Called ahead, Carl said rooms available. Less than 70 dollars. Rooms were clean. TV ,microwave .mini fridge. Comfy beds, good pillows. Not much for coffee . But all in all don't pass it by the out dated look.
