We found this Motel listed in the S. Dakota state listing book for available hotels and motels. When we arrived in Rapid City a few days ago, we decided to check it out since the hotel we had previously used near Hwy 16 was gone. We were very pleased with the welcoming attitude of the person on duty who graciously... More

Great location!loved how close it was to shopping and downtown! Close by there are 7 different places to eat never really had to adventure too far away. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

I was a little worried--the price was much lower than other hotels in Rapid City. But in this case--you get more than you paid for! The room was large and had a microwave, fridge, desk and nice flat screen tv. It smelled as clean as it looked. The towels were still the too-small, too-rough standard issue that you get everywhere.... More

The price is great, the local is super but mostly the people are so helpfull that they have "made the trip" a joy. The information that we got from them was better than anything in the books and FREE WIFI, really free and works IN THE ROOM, yay

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
