We only stayed one night while passing thru. The double queen room was huge, clean, and totally updated including flat screen tv. The pool was small but includes a water slide for the little ones. The free breakfast had two cold cereal, a few oatmeal flavors, biscuits and gravy, muffins and fruit. It wasn't the greatest but it did the... More

This hotel was fairly close to several stops on our list and had most of the amenities that one would both need and enjoy. Our room was decent; however, the carpet was visibly dirty, the paint on the walls was chipped, there were holes in the curtains, and some of the towels were stained. The breakfast was meh. The water... More

We stayed two nights here and enjoyed the location. Much to do in Rapid City and the Black Hills. Nothing notable about this hotel, just exactly as advertised. Clean, pretty quiet, good service. Woudl stay here again.

Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Only Problem I had was I had a hand towel and wash cloth that were stained. Thankfully there were extras in the room. I can not say anything about the breakfast as we did not eat there.

The motel itself was nice and updated, but our first room we went to go up to it and in the system the housekeeping put that it was clean, BUT they were just entering our room literally so we had to leave. They gave us another room, so maybe employees need a little more attention. The elevator was not working... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Econo Lodge in Rapid City. The room was large, the AC was very nice, and the TV was nice and big. We had some issues with getting enough towels in our room (they kept giving us too few) but other than that the stay went well. The beds are on the firm side,... More

It was a trip from our school and we were really satisfied. Rooms were airy, clean, bright and super roomy. They had free breakfast, complimentary breakfast, a nice pool and what not. Parking is free as well and the atmosphere was nice. Service was excellent and we have absolutely nothing to complaint.

This was a big disappointment. Again I did not listen to previous reviews. My mistake. We did get a first floor room as requested but we were not happy with the room. It was dark and dingy with paint chipped and the back of the door had only been half painted. We did have two entries and felt compelled to... More

Stayed here 3 nights for reasonable summer rate, during Mickelson Trail marathon weekend. On Friday night the hot tub was working fine, and I was looking forward to soaking my aching muscles in it after Sunday's race. Unfortunately the heater in it broke on Saturday!! The young lady at the desk was apologetic, and when I asked about an adjustment... More

As a family of 5 it is hard to find room enough for all of us, but when using the Choicehotels.com website and entered 5 the site offered the double queen with a roll-a-way as an option. Upon entering the room we realized the there was no cot and it would be a very tight fit. The roll-a-way needed to... More
