This is like living at home but with nicer creature comforts ! It has a kitchen, a small sitting area and is close to everything ! One tip: No ice cubes dispensers, so if you'd like a lot of ice for anything, buy it at a grocery store.

My wife and I stayed in his hotel for three nights at the end of April. Overall, we were very happy with the stay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. The bed was a little on the hard side for our taste but not terrible. The kitchenette area was a nice amenity to... More

Having never stayed at a Mainstay before it made me a little nervous. After this experience I would do it again. The people were good and even though there was a computer problem that had been bothering them all day they got us into the room quickly. I was impressed with the room, the amenities and the price. The breakfast... More

This place is great- nice big suites with full kitchens for short or long term stays- our stay was 8 nights! On the first night we requested light housekeeping daily- I hate to reuse towels- I also requested 3 towel sets per day instead of 2- however EVERY night we came back to see this wasn't done- only 2 sets...

This is a new, well kept hotel. The staff were great. The breakfast included scrambled eggs, diced potatoes and a main item. One day was waffles and the other was sausage links. The desk was a little small if you plan to use the room for a mobile office. The only other complaint is that the property is a little... More

From check-in to check-out, this place was great! As a Platinum Choice Privilege card holder I was upgraded to a two-room suite on 4th floor. Two bottles of water [with a personalized welcome label!] on counter of FULL KITCHEN! Full-sized fridge, stove, dining utensils, etc. Tasty breakfast. Paul at front desk was very pleasant and helpful. Some very minor complaints:... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights, in two rooms each night. We had to change one of the rooms, so we saw three in all. Each room was very clean, fresh and new. We were so comfortable and the price was fantastic! The staff was lovely, as well. The only improvements that could've made our stay better? Add... More

We stayed at Mainstay Rapid City over Spring break. Everything was perfect-clean,comfortable quiet room. All the staff were friendly and a breakfast with hot eggs, fruit etc. cookies in the afternoon-perfect for the traveler. We have 2 teenage children so the extra bed by way of a sofa bed was a plus. Never got to use the fully equipped kitchen... More

Nice new hotel. Clean. Free cookies! Front staff was friendly. Breakfast was slow to be replenished, had to eat pancakes,etc. with a spoon, out of fruit. They came to replenish towels in our room, took some used ones but did not leave new. Also, they did not leave extra toilet paper and we ran out the last morning. Hotel conviently... More
