This is a bit of an older building with nice and clean rooms. The furnishings are a little dated. There is a really nice pool area which is geared towards families including a waterslide. The preponderance of families and tour buses doesn't make this the quietest hotel though. There is a Perkins attached to the hotel and several other restaurants,... More

We stay here quite often when we visit Rapid City. This time, we were traveling with my 90 year old mother-in-law. We asked for connecting rooms and they were very accommodating. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We were all tired so we ordered food to go from the Perkins next door. If you are traveling with an elderly person,... More

Stayed one night after visiting Mount Rushmore. When we were checking in they had problems with the computer. We checked in around midnight so it wasn't that fun to have to sit in the lobby and wait for our room. We had rooms next to our friends and when I sneezed they could hear it through the wall. The room... More

I stayed in a wonderful room with an awesome king sized bed. The room was super clean, like I've never been in such a clean hotel room (and I even checked everything). Not a single spec of dust! The pool was super rad too and the staff were so nice as well and really tried to make sure that our... More

I ended up choosing this hotel mainly because they had a deal going on. We were just driving through and needed a place to stay for one night. If it were not for that, I would have chosen something else and will most likely look at other hotels if back in the area. Check-in/check-out was fine. The employees were pretty... More

I was hesitant to book after reading a few of the other reviews but our stay was just fine. The hotel is outdated but it's clean and comfortable with an awesome on site bar that appears to be quite popular with the locals. The hotel is in a good location, easy access to the freeway, downtown, and close driving-distance to... More

We stayed here twice on our vacation, both going & coming back home. We had a great stay both times. Rooms were reasonably priced and everything was excellent. This is an older hotel, but the rooms were really spacious and nicely decorated. It was far enough away from the freeway that traffic noise was minimal. The 2nd time we stayed,... More

After two weeks on the road across the west, this was a great place. Where these other people were staying were not the same place we stayed at. Room was great, people were great, everything was perfect.

To be fair, it is hard to choose a Hotel online, you can't get the real feel of a Hotel without seeing it in person. However, first impressions are everything, and the way we were greeted, along with the fact that the lobby dirty and uninviting set the tone for our entire stay. The room smelled musty, and like cigarette... More
