4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here with 4 small kids passing through on our road trip. Great place to let the kids unwind in the water park although it's an additional cost it's worth it. Continental breakfast was included & good. Room was big enough to accommodate all 6 of us comfortably.

I made reservations for 5 rooms for my large extended family. I only recieved 1 confirmation number. We were able to make other accomodations that were better for our group, so I cancelled our reservation using the only confirmation that I had recieved. Just to be sure, I called the hotel to ensure that there were no other reservations under... More

This is NOT a typical Marriott; staff improperly trained, facility neglected and no one appears to care. All this is obvious when the owner of the property boast several other businesses they also own. This is the only Marriott in the world that does not have a pool......ooops, sorry, it is an attached waterpark you must pay $15 per day... More

We stayed with three kids for three nights, but could not get the rollaway we requested. It was a good thing we traveled with an extra air mattress just in case! The water park is $15/day/person, and you have to pay for each day you use it. So, if you come in on one night and leave the next day,... More

The was an average hotel, noisy,and rude staff. With all this, it was very pricey. Note to all there is a water slide complex attached to the hotel, and there are a lot of kids, including their parents with loud voices. As a gold elite member, I was very disappointed.

We stayed there two days. The breakfast was great. The earlier the better because many people came down around 8am. There was a water park but we didn't use it. We ate in the hotel restaurant and it was very good.

We had our 4 kids with us and this hotel is ideal for that. They used the water park before and after day trips every day. It wasn't crowded. Breakfast buffet another draw for kids, handled very efficiently even with a lot of families there. The rooms are a bit small, even the suite, but manageable. Management was excellent. Very... More

Overall, this place was an average Fairfield Inn -- decent, nothing special. Very crowded breakfast. The room seemed a little old but it was clean and quiet. Price was more than I would usually spend on a Fairfield Inn but that is likely a function of its proximity to Mr. Rushmore in peak season. As much as it cost, I... More

My Mom and I stayed on my Marriott points before our visit to Mt. Rushmore. I didn't realize it is connected to an indoor waterpark, which would be great for young families. For us, having SO many kids in the lobby for breakfast each morning was a little annoying (especially because the breakfast options were very kid focused) and because... More
