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.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but give it a chance. It will surprise you. Well lit parking lot and nice location. The rooms inside are quite nice and well decorated. I got a room with a king bed and it was very comfortable. The tv was pretty nice and the room came with a fridge and microwave too... More

We kept having to change our reservation earlier and earlier and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We were given the room closest to the office which made it easy for my husband to get into the room and easy for me to haul the luggage and his oxygen machine. Nice roomy bathroom and everything was clean. Free coffee in... More

I grew up in Rapid City & recently went back to visit. I was so happy to see that this motel has been remodeled instead of torn down & replaced by a chain motel. You can not beat the price & location! Easy access to the best of the black hills. The suite I stayed in had a kitchenette that... More

I am local and I was really surprised in a good way that the room were as wonderful as they are. They are really big compared to other places I have stayed and paid alot more. They were also very clean. I used to be a assistant head housekeeper in the past so I'm usually really picky about the clean... More

We were looking for a quick stay while in the area for a trip and this hotel under cut everyone else and was very surprised how great the service and how friendly everyone was. The rooms were not the fanciest but they were clean and comfy. Would recommend to anyone family, couple, or single

Stayed during Sturgis. Great location, close to Black Hills, Reptile Gardens, etc. rooms were nice, a little dated perhaps, but they were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Secure area. I would stay again, and probably will when I return next year.
