The hotel is attached to a large Waterpark which generates a lot of traffic. It's not the hotel's fault that parents can't control rowdy kids running around. Room was nice and clean with no complaints. Breakfast was good but very busy on a Saturday morning. Staff did a good job in keeping up with the crowd but it took a... More

Roberto, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I first want to apologize for the kids being rowdy.

We checked into the Fairfield Inn in Rapid City on Christmas Eve. The staff was extremely helpful, professional, and cheerful. We enjoyed this hotel immensely. Our room was clean and the atmosphere was quiet. We are looking forward to returning for a longer stay to enjoy all the amenities this hotel has to offer. We highly recommend this hotel!

It was a very nice place to stay and comfortable room. The pool thing next door left lots of kids running about, so it took away from some of the romanticness for a wedding night, but none the less a very great stay!!!

We stayed here for the 2nd weekend this year. This room wasn't as nice as last time, but it was fine. The staff was again wonderful and very pleasant to work with. The room on 2nd floor was very hot. I don't know if its due to heat from the pool or some other reason, but we had to turn... More

The customer service was awesome! Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. Will be staying here each time we visit! Having the waterpark right at the hotel was a big plus for our kiddos! They loved every minute of it!
