Our family has been traveling cross country for a military move and staying exclusively at LQs. This has by far been the best one. Rooms were newly renovated, clean, etc. You get coupons for the restaurant and drink coupons upon arrival. We used them to eat dinner. Wasn't anything special but it wasn't awful! Yes, there's a resort fee but... More

We spend as much time as possible at this hotel. It's clean,fun and relaxing. Well this trip was not for fun and the staff knew it. They all went out of their way to make things as simple as possible. From making sure our room was ready by 1 to having it cleaned daily by 11 so it wouldn't interfere... More

This was one of the better LQ's we've stayed at. The breakfast was somewhat better than most LQ's. Would stay here again. Will recommend this to our kids and grandkids who would love the attached waterpark.

The hotel is an older but clean. Airport and freeway very close so the nights sleep was not very good. You could hear the planes going over. It's also right next to a water park and I was there in Oct.. If you have kids and coming to the water park then it may be a place for you and... More

My daughter and I were greatly impressed by the amenities, quality and front desk service offered at your Rapid City location! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the water park, and I especially so since the employee at the front desk went out of his way to get us complementary passes to use the water park! Water parks should be a feature... More

First lets say this hotel is attached to a water park, AND another hotel. Which makes the parking lot the worst parking I have ever seen. Spent quite a bit of time driving around and around looking for an empty spot. They will try to charge a "resort fee", so if you are not planning on using the waterpark, tell... More

The property itself is a very good La Quinta. It is clean, well appointed, the rooms are generous and the staff is great. On sight is a smaller water park, a decent restaurant, a bar and a good exercise room. They give you two free drink coupons (1 in their Bright Side store and 1 in the restaurant or bar)... More

Thought I had reservations and they didn't complete so I was stuck paying an additional 80 per night. For advertising 49.99 per night rooms what a major disappointment. The beds were miserably soft and uncomfortable. The room was pretty small for the price we paid to stay in your motel. I will not be planning any returns or recommending your... More

Let me start out by saying the hotel was nice and clean. I was a little concerned because it was attached to a HUGE water park. Which doesn't open until 4:00pm (at least when we were there). They did give us 2 coupons for free drinks. The reason why I give them average and not very good was the check... More
