We stayed 4 nights at this hotel and for the money was much better than expected. With the awesome water park (Watiki) attached, the kids loved it after a day of sight seeing and tourist attractions, they enjoyed all the slides and the adults could have a cold beverage in the hot tub. Very clean rooms and even the restaurant... More

This 3 star hotel is in a really great location in order to access the touristy sites as well as Rapid City proper. It is about 10 miles away from the regional airport. We stayed here 3 nights and have two girls so were excited about the water park which is attached to this hotel and another one from the... More

We didn't know there was a "waterpark" attached to this Marriot property. So, when we arrived in 102 degree heat, our grandson was delighted beyone belief! We looked like real hero's. Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine as we went when not so crowded. Overall, our stay was very good.

Stayed just one night while in Rushmore area, easy to get there from the hotel. Typical Marriott property. We did avoid downtown by using the truck route. Waterpark added to the volume of people, but not any addl noise. Adequate breakfast, friendly staff.

This is going to be a mini-review. I booked this hotel because of location and also because it is part of Marriott. I have come to expect a quality product from them and have stayed at many of their hotels over the years. I was quite surprised then to walk into our room and see that one of the armchairs... More

We were on a road trip to Yellowstone from Denver and stopped in Rapid City to spend some time in the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. We arrived late at the Fairfield. If you come by way of Rushmore take the truck I-90 direction to avoid waisting time going through downtown. This is an older Fairfield that is connected to... More

Right off the interstate and a easy to get to Mount Rushmore which is an easy 25 minute drive with little traffic. The hotel had a waterpark right next door but there was never a noise issue. Of course the breakfast was free and very clean and had a variety to foods. Staff was helpful for restaurant information and directions... More

We just spent 5 days at this hotel, traveling with my 74 & 78 year old parents. Never thought about the TV being an issue for them. The first screen that pops up is the screen where you can purchase a movie. My dad bought 5 movies in 1 day, one being an adult movie. We weren't in the hotel... More

My family stayed on a Monday night. I thought $164 was a bit much, but my kids were looking forward to enjoying the waterpark, so I decided to splurge. Then I found out that access to the waterpark would cost an additional $15 per person or 5 passes for $60. I asked how they could justify charging $164 for a... More

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. These reviews are a very useful training tool and help management correct any issues that we might have to make a guests experience better. The waterpark is a seperate business from the hotel and the front desk agents sell passes for the waterpark. This is why there is an additional fee for... More
