We have (1)2 and (1) 4 year old and we stayed there for 4 nights. It's physically connected to an awesome water park where they serve reasonably-priced food. You can even eat in the water park area which is sweet. Great breakfast and parking is pretty good, and I am typing this at one of their complimentary computers. The only... More

I was quoted a price online and I tried to cancel my reservation at 11:00 a.m. for the same day I had reservations, and they would not cancel. I called the hotel and then I called the corporate number. The corporation said that they had to talk to the Rapid City hotel and put me on hold. They said I... More

With the attached water park and sliders restaurant this hotel is a good place to stay to have some fun and be close to shopping in Rapid City. While all hotels have little things that need attention overall you will enjoy your stay here.

The beds are awful, the furniture dusty and the carpet has a mildew smell! We paid almost $400 for a room, the pull out couch didn't have linens, the pillows had no pillowcases and the desk had a layer of dust! Definitely don't waste your money here!

This La Quinta is in a perfect location for anyone traveling and doing sightseeing in the Black Hills. It is just off of I-90 at Exit 61 which is the Exit you would want to take from the Interstate to get to the Southern Hills fast. Also just across the street from the Black Hills Visitors Center. Ellsworth AFB is... More

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.
