This is a fun hotel. It has a very large water park attached - so I doubt anyone missed it checking in. It isn't free, but they do offer discounts for hotel guests. They offer free drinks and massive happy hour deals too. Bring your kids and have some fun and stop complaining.

We stayed in a double queen room. The room was clean and beds looked clean. The bathroom sink didn't drain well. The shower water pressure would change for no reason. The breakfast was ok. The hot choices were few. waffle eggs sausage gravy. With your stay you get a discount at sliders the attached restaurant. Unfortunately the restaurant needed oblivious... More

We were taking road trip through South Dakota and Wyoming and stay in many La Quinta's over the years. So far La Quinta in Rapid City was not up to the standards. The room smelled funny. It was stench between mildew, dog's wet fur and some perfume. We travel with the two small dogs, pappilons that smell like shampoo. Why,... More

The main thing about the hotel is that is attached to the water park, and the water park is really wonderful, but the hotel is not so much. We stayed here a few times because we visit South Dakota every year, and we stayed here because we had points at the time. The rooms are basic but the hotel seems... More

This location needs serious improvement in the customer service aspect of the staff. The front desk check in was a breeze, but after that one time it was never easy after that and seemed to take forever to get anything. One evening we were called at 10:30 p.m. after we were already in bed and asleep to see if we... More

On a recent stay at this La Quinta in Rapid City, we were saddened to see that we had to pay to swim. There is an indoor water park attached. However, if you stay at the LA Quinta, you have to pay to utilize it. It was a very hot day. A swim would have been nice. But $15.00 to... More

Room was spacious and clean. Hotel manager as well as front desk staff were helpful and accommodating. We didn't try out the water park because we were there for the Sturgis Rally. The adjoining restaurant has excellent food that we both enjoyed both dining in as well as room service.

After a bad experience at the LaQuinta a couple of years ago, I had vowed to never stay here again. While traveling out to the black hills with my wife's family, they had already booked their rooms here. Not wanting to upset the apple cart and my wife, against my better judgement, I booked a room here again. The customer... More

Very clean, very courteous staff, excellent breakfast, and the water park is great. But, the beds . . . In two rooms, 3 out of 4 beds were essentially broken. They sagged badly in the middle, and were uncomfortable whether on your back or side. Hotel was booked, so couldn't switch rooms. Asked for a comp, and was given 20%... More

Bed bugs in each room we tried. Disgusting!! We booked the most expensive suite they had and it had bed bugs.... We then switched to another suite, same thing. For $379 bucks a night, I expect more. Once I pulled the sheets back I spotted bed bugs that were filled with blood from feeding on the poor person who had... More
