We arrived into Rapid City mid-evening on July 4th without a reservation. We had a car breakdown so our schedule was completely off.
After trying 18 other hotels we tried the Alex Johnson. One room left. Yes!!!
Great staff at reception. They had just had a room cancelation so we got an excellent deal on the room.
Rooms are very small, but ours was nicely appointed, clean and quiet.
The restroom was so small I could hardly turn around. Nice toiletries.
The place has character and class. The vibe is probably best for a younger clientele.
Our only beef is that there is absolutely NO place to park a vehicle with a trailer for ten blocks. We ended up parking in a local lot which supposedly tickets starting at 6 am. We got back to the car at 7:15 and no ticket yet.
