Found this motel via the internet. Looked as though it would be a good one due to the location and what we had planned for the weekend. Upon our arrival we were met by a young man at the front desk (later found out his name was Zach). I had told him I was going to call direct to make... More

We stayed at the foothills Inn last night in Rapid City, SD. We had a horrible experience...when we went to get in bed at 11:00 pm I turned down the sheets and discovered hair on the bottom sheet upon closer inspection I found what appeared to be a large about of dried semen on the top sheet and one of...

Stayed here for 2 nites. Hotel is a little dated, but clean and functional. Comparable to or better than any other place in Rapid City at less than half the price. Perkins restaurant is a short walk. I will stay here again and recommend it.

The Foothills Inn is an outstanding hotel for budget conscience travelers. The beds were extremely comfortable, the room had a good sized television and a refrigerator, and the shower was one of the best I'd had in a long time. The breakfast is very basic but given the cost of the room, very acceptable. I will certainly stay here again.

I would never recommend staying at this hotel. The room was nothing like the photo. Carpets were stained, the room was stinky, beds were horrible, bathrooms in need of updates. My husband walked to the gas station and was asked for money from a local bum. Tried plugging in a cell phone charger and bumping a cable knocked out the... More

As soon as we walked in the door we were warmly welcomed by Gayle. Check in was quick and our two rooms were next to each other which was convenient. The bathroom fixtures are older but the room was extremely clean and the beds were comfy with lots of pillows; a plus in my book. There was a small fridge... More

Reading some of the older reviews for The Foothills, it did not look promising. However, the later ones rated it well so my wife and I made it our first stop. Greeted with a warm smile, we were told that a room was available at $49. We stated that a Tripadvisor partner was quoting $39. Gayle, the receptionist, invited us... More

Terry and Gayle, management team of Foothills Inn, were incredible during the blizzard of Oct 4th, A/K/A "Storm of the Century"! I was a guest planning to fly home the next day after the storm hit. Stuck for 4 days in the lobby with other worried, weary, hungry guests, Terry and Gayle maintained composure and levity under trying conditions, The... More

This motel reminds me of the ones I stayed in as a child. Very "50's" The rooms are clean, quiet, and have comfortable beds. No fluffy towels here:) There's no elevator but with only two floors it's not too bad. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates. Older style outdoor swimming pool but nice sitting area around... More

We stayed for 5 day Sept 15-20 2013 and overall very happy….outdoor space was very important to us and we had a room on the 1st floor with a patio next to the outdoor pool they kept open upon our request. I asked about the pool and they normally close it after Labor Day, but agreed to keep it open... More
