I agree with the other reviews, including the rudeness from the front desk. We were here because we were on an America by Rail tour, and unfortunately we had to stay at this hotel two nights, and the other hotels we just stayed one night. There was a Perkins restaurant attached where we got our coffee in the morning, and... More

The blanket and heavy comforter on the bed needs to be thrown away. It is old, soiled and stained. The chairs in our... More

This is a nice hotel, the wood work reminds me of a older hotel. The room is clean and spacious. It has free WiFi, which is a nice feature and there is a Perkins right next door. The lady at the front desk could have been nicer and a little more friendly, but that is the only compliant that I... More

As soon as we walked into the hotel, you're hit with the overwhelming smell of cigarettes. The receptionist who checked us in was absolutely rude that we actually called down to the manager to complain about her. When we called down, the receptionist knew we were about to complain about her, and she became a bit belligerent. We were assigned... More

The staff was friendly and very helpful. The kids enjoyed the water slide/pool! Rooms were very clean and housekeeping was very friendly as well. The location was ideal and is pretty close to most monuments. Loved it here!! Would definitely come back to visit!

This hotel was perfectly located. It was easy to find and in a nice central location to all major attractions. Pool/hot tub was tiny, but ok if you could find it empty. Not big enough just to relax in and unwind. Beds were WAY to soft and dipped in the middle. If you need a firmer mattress due to past... More

We were driving through South Dakota on our way home from Colorado. We ended up in the Mt Rushmore/Rapid City area at 8-9PM and needed a place to stay with our two children. What we didnt realize when we decided to drive through South Dakota was that it was Sturgis week. Most hotels had jacked up their rates and some... More

Perfect location off I90 and access to the major attractions. Comfortable beds. Nice decor. We would definitely stay again. The pool area and lobby were very nice and clean. Perkins is connected which was nice for breakfast.

This hotel is really nice. Amazing pool and water slide. Close to area restaurants. Surprisingly very reasonable prices. Comfortable beds. No breakfast included. Nice stay with friendly staff. Stayed here on the way home from Mount Rushmore. My husband and I both enjoyed staying here and have recommended it to other people we know.

My mom and I stayed here three nights while on vacation from washington state. We had my 12 and8year old. They thought the slide was the highlight of trip, better than Mt. Rushmore even, lol. The housekeeping dept was exceptional. While getting 100 miles down road we realized my 8 yr old left his glasses and brand new pocket knife... More
