Good location. We didn't use the waterpark... The rooms were clean, but small and awkwardly set up. I was impressed that for as busy as it was they stayed on top of the food for breakfast (which is standard fare). We had a fourth floor room and had no sound issues.

As a loyal Marriott customer, I tend to try to avoid Fairfield Inns because they are the "lowest on the Totem Pole" when it comes to the Marriott family. The Rapid City Fairfield Inn exceeded my expectations in virtually every category. The accommodations and room sizes were better than expected. The amenities, such as the snacks store and breakfast area... More

As a Marriott Rewards member I seek out Marriott properties almost exclusively. I travel extensively for my job and look forward to a relaxing evening after a hard day's work. I didn't find it at the only Marriott property in all of Rapid City, nor should you expect one either. While the Marriott app for the iPhone shows you the... More

y2kgts, Thank you for taking the time to review the Fairfield Inn & Suites. We do have a lot of families stay with us here to enjoy a relaxing night or two and to enjoy the water park. This does cause some noise as the kids are very excited to have fun in the water park however we do our... More

No hot water, so I started the day with a cold shower. The front desk staff knew nothing about the issue, so we waited for the manager to finish his cigarette in the parking lot; thereafter, he acknowledged the entire hotel was without hot water. If you need the manager, you'll find him smoking "out back".

Dan M, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. All the staff was well aware of the hot water issue that we had during your stay. Unfortunately one of our water heaters failed and had to be fixed which happened shortly after the water heater failed. The management staff was outside discussing the hot water issue with... More

We stayed at this Fairfield Inn for 3 nights. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and beds were great. Breakfasts were great, but could add some fresh eggs and cooked oatmeal would be nice. The front desk staff was very helpful and worked hard to respond to our requests of assistance.

Friendly front desk staff. Clean hotel with attractive lobby area. Okay buffet breakfast as is usual at Fairfields . No problem with wireless connection. We ate at the nearby restaurant, Sliders, and enjoyed our meal there. The hotel has an airport shuttle service that worked out fine. There was just one big negative for us. We had reservations. We did... More

I have close to 1,000 nights in various Marriott properties all over the country. This is a better than average Fairfield Inn with one exception. This inn shares its parking with a La Quinta Inn and an indoor water park. It caters to large families and large busloads of people. The parking lot was busy, the check-in was busy, the... More

We stayed here overnight recently while on a road trip heading west. It is easily accessible to the I94 with friendly desk staff, clean lobby, clean room and bathroom with a comfortable bed, free wifi, and it was quiet so we had a good sleep.The light breakfast was good and the hostess pleasant. We also stayed here in 2012. This... More

We stayed 6 nights at the hotel, making it base camp for our day trips in SW South Dakota and up to Devil's Tower in Wyoming. Great access to I-90 and 16 made it easy to get anywhere we needed to go. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was typical of the chain (I'm a vegan, so... More

With 30,000 square feet of slides, winding rivers and other water fun, it's no wonder why WaTiki continues to be a family favorite.
