This was a beautiful hotel at reasonable price. They offered a continental breakfast. The location was great, along the interstate highway, easy off easy on. They also had a huge waterpark that was connected.

This particular La Quinta is nothing special - the staff at the desk is friendly and attentive, but I found the housekeeping service a bit strange. While my room was for the most part clean when I walked in, when I sat down on my bed I noticed a large crusty dripping on the bed skirt of the bed beside... More

It would be better if the bathrooms were taken care of better! I believe that the help needs to be better trained in cleaning and guest satisfaction. Other wise we had a good experience. we really like the location and the water park ammenities, for the kids that are in our group. It would be helpful to have a couple... More

Our family lives in the local area (Black Hills), and every so often, we simply want to spend a weekend in Rapid City for some family time. During the off-season, this LaQuinta offers some great rates ... about $49 per night. Except for the additional taxes imposed by the city of Rapid City, the overall cost is very affordable for...

Friendly front desk staff, clean, quiet room. Dog friendly without a pet fee. Having a restaurant was handy after a long day of driving. We would definatley stay here again. The rate was cheaper than many budget hotels we have stayed at in the past.

Disappointed since we mentioned we were apprehensive to stay again after our previous stay. And yet the Bathroom was dirty. Stains on floor, couch, & bed spread. I wiped down the TV remote and end table the TV was on and the wipe was black. Excessive noise above us & front desk did nothing.

We usually stay at this hotel when we visit Rapid City for medical treatment because they allow dogs. Our last two rooms were a little shabby and not very clean. We usually stay in a king suite to give ourselves a little more room. The last room has several blood smears on the walls. They weren't huge but we noticed... More

We stay at La Quinta often and have always had good experiences, but this hotel was not good. The hotel was in decent condition and the rooms were as expected, but the staff was not good. We stayed for 4 nights and on more than one occasion we came back to the room after 5 pm to find our room... More

We were traveling though SD and had to stop here for the night. Check in was easy peezy. We got two free drink tickets which was good after driving 14 hours. Rooms were clean, the beds were comfy and plenty of hot water. The morning breakfast buffet was adequate for our needs. No complaints and we would likely stay here... More
