Strange place, very outdated furnishing, rooms and entire hotel incl. facilities were not clean. Nearby restaurant also very dirty, however food tasted well. Prices are insane compared to what you get. And again: Pool area with carpet. I will never understand how someone can get this idea.

After riding the Harley all day I was very tired and just looking for a clean room and a comfortable bed within my budget. The Grand Gateway was all of those things for me. My room was very clean with nice furnishings. It was surprisingly quiet for being so close to I90. This was very affordable compared to several other... More

This hotel had lots of pros and cons. Pros- beautiful furnishings, nice recreational area, close to everything. Cons- worn down, bathroom was outdated, housekeeping was mediocre at best, room was super small and said it was for three people, but there was no pull-out and you are not allowed cots in the room, staff was not very friendly or helpful,...

We stayed here two nights before moving to the Alex Johnson downtown. It was very comfortable, quieter than I expected. Free wifi-which went in and out, but that was ok. All the cable channels. Great location next to I90. The Perkins adjacent is disgusting so use TA to find anyplace else to eat. We are trying the Millstone just down... More

Service was provided by Marie K. and it was just the best. The room was nice and clean and the amenities were good. The microwave had a problem and they replaced it the same hour with a brand new one. The location was so convenient to the highway to get on and off. Went during Sturgis and they even provided...

I was looking for a fun hotel for my kids during our road trip. The slide is fun indeed, super fast, and no rules apply as there is no attendant on duty. But that's where it ends... . For the price of around 300$ a night the room does not come with a breakfast even. The room was just average.... More

This is a nice hotel. The pool and the slide were very nice. My kids loved it! I think it is convenient that Perkins is within the hotel. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful. Our only downfall is that it was noisy at night, our neighbors left their tv on all night. Otherwise, it was great place... More

Grand Gateway Hotel's best two features are the location and the ample parking. The room and the service was also fine - decor is a bit outdated, but I'm not concerned about that. It was a clean hotel and convenient to everything we were in town to do.

Was centrally located to all our activities we had planned. Older hotel but clean and friendly staff. Pool area was nice. Moderately priced. Would stay here again. Wish they had a continental breakfast.

I have done a lot of world travel. Little did I know my greatest experience would be in my own country? Stayed at the Grand Gateway hotel in Rapid City and experienced America. Centrally located to Mount Rushmore, crazy horse monument, black hills forest, Custer national park, mining towns in Leads and Deadwood. Just a great American experience. Now for... More
