Conveniently right off freeway, and as always pet friendly. But next to an indoor water park and, I assume because of that, way overpriced in comparison to all the other La Quintas we stayed at on this trip! Always appreciate being pet friendly with no added fees though!

Nice hotel, the water park you have to pay for separately FYI. We had a king bed suite though it wasn't a separate room which we like when we travel with kids. We did get a handicap accessible suite so had plenty of room and lots of bars to hang swim gear up on! Room service was good and fast.... More

We had a great room which was close to the indoor water park. Rooms were clean, associates were courteous. Great jump off point for the activities near Mount Rushmore and Custer. The halls can be noisy with kids running to/ from the waterpark but it didn't bother me since it closed at 10.

My family enjoyed a night's stay at the LaQuinta. The breakfast was great, Watiki was fun, supper was nice (kids under 10 ate free) - room was quiet, staff was courteous, over all a great experience and quite reasonable considering it was peak tourist season

My kids and I enjoyed our stay in the hotel and loved the waterpark! We had a great time in the morning and afternoon in the waterpark, but when we went back in the evening it was incredibly packed with a lot of older teenagers and the lifeguards did not watch the pool or slides at all. At that point... More

This hotel was fine, but did not suit our needs in the fact that the attached water park is the only option re: hot tub/pool. It was very busy and we were glad they could accommodate our pet. That being the case, we were in a pet room and the upholstered chair in the room had slobber on it- ick... More

Had such a fantastic time at this hotel. Recently traveled with our family across country and this hotel was THE best one we stayed at! The service at this hotel was TOP notch, definitely a great reflection of their leadership. Our room was very clean and extremely well maintained. Of course the water park was the cake topper of our... More

We paid 150 a night to stay at this hotel not realizing when we made reservations it is a waterpark resort. Not a huge deal but it was not mentioned to me when I made the reservation and they tack on a 8 dollar surcharge because of it. Once we arrived the hotel was nice and recently renovated. We drove...
