I was very impressed with this hotel. I had stayed in a motel the night before where it was so loud I couldn't sleep. I didn't hear a sound the whole stay here. Huge room with a nice stuffed chair, table and chairs, microwave and refrigerator. Only thing I would recommend is not allow staff to smoke right by the... More

A lovely hotel. Friendly service. Close drive to all attractions. Kids couldn't get enough of the waterslide, pool and pool tables. Clean rooms. Had plenty of information about what to do in the area.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have been impressed by the updated decor and bedding. The price was right and we thought all was headed in the same direction as our past great visits. We were in room 134. Right next to the north exit. The door banged so hard when closed our bed shook. People were... More

I have stayed here a few times and it's a good motel, seems to be fairly clean, the room we were in was more on the dark side, so hard to tell really. no place to eat, but has Perkins right next door, so that works perfect. I can't really complain about this place, the rates are good too.

Hideaways, thank you for your continued patronage! Perkins is a favorite with many of our guests because of the 24/7 availability for meals - we're happy to know it's an added perk when you stay with us. We will see you again soon! Have a great day. More

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
