We stayed at the Ramkota for two nights while my husband competed in the Cookin' on Kampeska BBQ event. Watertown, SD was our farthest stop on our road trip from California. We got a discount since we were competing at the event, so the rate was about $90/night. Overall, the hotel could use some updates. Some of the exterior looks... More

Definitely not the best stay I've had at a Ramkota brand hotel. Room floors were wet, bed sheets were damp. Had a musty smell to the room and had an itchy/dry throat for two days after our stay. We had no cell service in our room. You could hear everyone walking by our room, thankfully the hotel didn't have any... More

I stayed here for a family wedding and that is the only reason to stay at this hotel. It was over $110/night for a room with 2 queens (2 people) and that is a high price for rooms in this area. The hallways are EXTREMELY humid from the pool and if you are not here for an event being hosted... More

The room was very clean and comfortable. If I had one complaint it would be the air conditioner was a bit loud but it worked! We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Minerva restaurant. The food is incredibly good! The location of the hotel was nice too. It was closer to downtown than to other hotels in the area.

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.
