This is a nice Fairfield Inn right off I90 and Rte 16 which takes you to major attractions. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly. There is an adjacent restaurant that also offers room service. Make sure your GPS is programmed correctly as N. Elk Vale can get GPS confused with Elk Vale. Entrance a bit tricky the... More

I didn't enjoy anything about this place except the bed. I was charged more than I was quoted when I made my reservation, but couldn't do anything about it because they misspelled my email address, even though it's the same as my name. Stay away from the water park. Not nice at all. Lifeguards do not pay attention. It's not... More

When I booked this room it was because it was a Marriott and my husband and I planned to fly out of Rapid City after a nice road trip visiting several major national parks. It was close to Mt Rushmore, which was the last park on our intinerary. We ended up here a day ahead of schedule and I had... More

This wonderful hotel with large rooms and very comfortable beds was in a great location for our visit to Mt. Rushmore. Daniel (the mgr) and Ashley who checked us in were extremely pleasant and helpful. Sliders, a restaurant next door to the Fairfield Inn has delicious food and reasonable prices. Internet is included as well as a very good complimentary... More

We stayed here for a family vacation, which included visiting Mt Rushmore, not too far away. Very nice hotel, great breakfast spread, included in the hotel cost, and a great staff. There is an attached water park, which we did not have the opportunity to visit. The water park entrance fee is not included with the cost of the hotel.... More

Ok I had previously tried to review this hotel and due to 'insufficient' information it was not published. We flew in here from DFW so spent the first and last night at this hotel on our road trip. The lobby was clean. At the beginning of the road trip we got a room on the second floor which was ok.... More

I has nothing but great experiences at thw Fairfield. The manager (Daniel) and receptionist (Ashley) were absolutely fantastic. They made sure we always had what we needed and assisted whenever asked. Front desk, in general was beyond amazing! Huge continental breakfast and our room was awesome. The hotel itself was clean and inviting. The Watiki water park (attached) was the... More

I stayed with my family with two small kids this past week and had a WONDERFUL time with the hotel, the attached Watiki waterpark, and the absolutely awesome Sliders sports bar and lounge. The food was great, the room was unbelievable, and the staff was great. I'm already planning my return to the area in the near future! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We arrived late at night to the Fairfield. Staff were pleasant. Our room was up to date in furnishings and decorating. Very clean. We stayed one night here to begin our vacation and will stay again at the end. We did not realize it was attached to a water park when we arrived. Breakfast was ok.

Responding to the call for a Double (Buffalo) Nickels road trip, my travel mates and I staked our claim to a room at the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott in Rapid City, South Dakota. What better way to celebrate the passage of my time than to visit the timeless grandeur of the Badlands and Black Hills. How could I... More
