First of all my compliments to Manager Reeva for complying with our last minute request in a friendly professional manner. We give her a 5 star rating for welcoming us with open arms. We had quick, easy check in with a friendly staff that put a smile upon our faces from the get-go. The TV gave us a problem and... More

We made this hotel our home base while exploring the Black Hills and Badlands. The room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The free wifi worked very well, better than in far more expensive hotels we've stayed at. The front desk staff was friendly and professional. The pool was a great place to cool off after a long day in... More

We previously lived in the Rapid City area and have been coming back recently for business. We stayed two nights recently and both nights the staff was very friendly. When we checked in the guy at the front desk was polite and made sure that we knew where our room was located, about breakfast, the fitness center and laundry area.... More

The hotel is okay on most accounts. Some at the front desk are very helpful & professional, and others are just "there", and apparently aren't very thrilled about it. The room was pretty standard, and other than the fridge, was pretty quiet, and certainly clean enough. The bed was comfortable. The wireless was nonexistant. I traveled for business all week,...

The rooms were very clean, included a small table and chairs, as well as adequate walking space around the beds. This hotel has several smoking/dog friendly rooms, which was... More
