This hotel is conveniently located near the highway for easy access to daily sightseeing trips. It's great to have Perkins attached to the hotel for quick breakfast or late dinners as well. Especially if there is an impromptu blizzard during your stay! The indoor pool with a huge slide is a great draw for families with kids. The rooms are... More

I was trying to find a nice place where my daughter could stay for the night. Both Donna and Lisa were very welcoming and helpful. They were very friendly, courteous, and supportive in finding a nice place for my daughter to stay overnight. She just finished 2 days of finals and drove all the way from Grand Forks, N.D. in...

The customer service was excellent the rooms were clean the beds were comfortable and the pillows were awesome! Everyone in Rapid City is so friendly. We will definitely be... More

When my fiance booked this hotel I was a bit leery because of its low price, but then he showed me the reviews. This hotel exceed my expectations and is exactly what the reviews say. It is easy to find. The staff are helpful. The pool area looks great,and doesn't smell up the hotel. The rooms are amazing with classic... More

This is by far the best value we have received in a long time. This room in other locations could really rent for three times the taste we received. There is not however a free breakfast as indicated in the profile

My husband and I made plans with our friends to meet at this hotel in Rapid City. We were taking a road trip from Cincinnati and they flew in from Chicago. We were so happy with the Grand Gateway! Besides the amazingly reasonable price, they had an attached bar, rec area and Perkins. We visited every site in the area,... More

We stayed here 2 nights for our Black hills trip, mostly because of the 130' waterslide. My two children are teens and were not too thrilled so we never tried out the pool/slide area. The beds were comfortable and overall decor kinda gave it a Grand vibe. Problem we had was when we were out seeing the sights all day,... More

After driving all night, we were so tired and just wanted to sleep. We were way to early for check in. Sandy went out of her way to get us a room,and put us where it would be quiet! She went above andbeyond!!

We have been to the Black Hills many times, but this is our first time at this hotel. The rate was so attractive, I was a little apprehensive, but the hotel is excellent. We are already planning on staying here when we come back through in the Spring.
