We appreciated the cleanliness of the place and the cheerfulness of the employees. We came in early evening and left fairly early the next morning. The breakfast was okay and we would stay again if stopping by Rapid City.

Room was very clean, my husband was very pleased. I will recommend this hotel for any vacation. All staff were informative and helpful. This was my second vacation to the area and we will plan another trip again. My favorite this year was the Crazy horse monument and driving I. The Black Hill National Forest.

We stayed here while visiting Mt. Rushmore. It's a good location and pet friendly so our dog got to stay with us! The beds were comfy, and the kids liked the hot tub. The staff was very friendly. We would probably stay here again.

My son booked this for me--I had never stayed at this hotel before. The gal at the front desk that checked me in was the nicest, most knowledgeable clerk I've ever encountered. And the rest of the staff was exceptional as well. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, hotel was very quiet. Overall and extremely pleasant stay. Will definitely go... More

Booked this hotel on priceline.com as it was the lowest rate I could find. Got to the hotel about 5pm the day of my stay and the front desk staff was fantastic, got checked in quickly. Got to my room and I was impressed by the soft beds and the cleanliness of the room. The wife and daughter thought it... More

This hotel was fantastic. The staff was super cooperative from the time I made the reservation to our departure. They went out of their way to make our four (4) day stay a great one. The breakfast had all that was needed to start the day and all other amenities were top notch. The beds were queen size and comfortable... More

You get what you pay for....after reading reviews on tripadvisor I took a chance expecting to be surprised that it was nicer than it looked. It wasn't. Not a hidden gem, just another budget hotel like any other. Room pictures look nothing like the room I got.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The staff was very helpful, the room was clean, the location was easy to find. The breakfast was fine. Some fresher choices would be nice, but it was adequate. The room was small, but worked with two queens and a rollaway. We would use this hotel again.

Booked through Priceline.com and was impressed with how nice the place was for a "budget" hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast had a decent selection and the room was nice. They have a pool and hot tub along with a small workout room. The TV station selection was better than the 169 a night hotel I stayed at... More
