The check in process was quick and painless, the managers were top-notch. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice size flat screen tv and a homey feel. The location is central to downtown Rapid and many activities. I'll stay there again!

On our recent visit to Rapid City, we just wanted a simple motel that was clean and quiet and we could get a good nights rest. Because the state basketball tournaments were going on, all the "chain" motels were full of screaming kids, parties and swimming. We found the Gold Star Motel off the "interstate path". It is a simple,... More

The Gold Star is the best/only place to be if you're going to stay on E. North St. in Rapid City. It's not fancy, but it's safe. E. North St. in Rapid is not a good neighborhood, and every other motel on the street is nothing more than a flophouse with the associated traffic and residents. McD and a Chinese... More

There is nothing special about this place, but it was clean and convenient. The prices weren't great for the facility, but it was high season. It was a better value than the chain motels. Importantly, it was clean and comfortable

They are a AAA motel but they DO NOT stick to the prices in the travel guide. They padded on $30.00 and we were traveling off season. They are unprofessional and rude. Do not stay here.

The Gold Star was recommended by AAA. It was clean and friendly and quiet. However, no food except stale donuts in the AM. The towels were threadbare. It is located close to some restaurants and the freeway but not close to downtown.
