Cleanliness in the room was a HUGE problem; the outside hotel doors are not secure; the bedding in the rooms are dated and kinda depressing (color); need a free breakfast but on a positive note the staff is very friendly and I believe the Hotel could be very nice with improvements and I would be willing to try hotel again.

GREAT experience at the Ramkota in Watertown SD was. I would recommend Ramkota to anyone for any reason. Renae is an exceptional employee and very personable and helpful. Without her our trip would not have been as enjoyable.

Good nights sleep in a clean and updated room. Basic amenities, pool, fitness room, no frills, no breakfast. I think there was an on site restaurant but wasn't made aware of it. We have stayed here twice and would come back. Close to Restaurants and Shops.

Very, very bad. Heating did not work at all, no additional blankets, just froze....Bathtube drains slower than you can imagine, water pressure extremely low..... Just bad. Will never stay there again. Ordered very nice fish in the restaurant, cooked very well but.....in a very old, stinking frying oil, could not eat it. Do not order it!

Hotel is very dated. Tub drain was clogged; drunks kept yelling and pounding on doors until after 2am; A/C could not keep room cooled; very dark inside; rooms were very small; shower area even smaller. Not worth another try.

I enjoyed the Ramkota Although I wish there were more places to eat nearby as they do not have a shuttle on weekdays. They do have a bar and food on site. The room was okay, but could be updated. The staff was great and I will stay there again next time I am in Watertown.

The hotel needs some serious TLC to catch up to 2015. The rooms are small and let in a ton of light from the atrium that is the hallway. Staff was friendly. Fitness center is lacking but has some cardio and a shoulder machine. Bed was comfy. No fridge or microwave.

We were in Watertown for only one night so we weren't that picky about accommodations. Check-in was very quick, and after having some difficulty opening the room door and getting that straightened out, we didn't leave the room. The room proved to be on the small side and definitely needed updating in their features in general, although the bed was... More
