“Great location and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed two nights in June on a Badlands and Mount Rushmore vacation. The hotel is just off the interstate. There are several shopping centers within a five minute drive and a gas station and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. There was an elevator. Our room was a family suite that included a microwave and refrigerator and separate bedroom with a king bed. Very spacious. Check in was smooth with a friendly front desk attendant. She recommended the restaurant Dakotah that is in the shared parking lot. Worth dinning there. Breakfast was well stocked with the usual fare. I would definitely return.

Good afternoon 27lovetotravel,

I’m very happy to hear that your stay with us was so enjoyable! Thank for staying with us and for taking time to review our Platinum Award Winning Hotel! The Family Suite is a great choice and definitely spacious as all of our rooms were designed to be larger than average. Please visit us the next time you’re in the Black Hills!

I always inspect hotel rooms right away. I walked in and there was no smell, the bed linens were not stained and did not smell like the typical strong bleach smell. The bathroom had no mold/mildew stained caulk, sinks were clean and unstained and the tile grout was even clean. The only thing that wasn't perfect was under the vanity. There were about 50 black hairs under there that didn't get swept up when they cleaned. I actually felt comfortable in a hotel room. They were sold out the second night we were there, so I expected some noise from the hallway and neighbors and heard...NOTHING! I had to really listen to hear anyone. LOVE THAT! I was there with my family for 4 nights. Would stay there again.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for the great review! I’m ecstatic to hear that you found comfort in our suites! Our staff works tirelessly to make sure that our entire property is spotless. I’ll address the vanity with housekeeping. I’m also happy to hear that your suite was nice and quiet…. sometime you just can’t put a price on that! We hope you will visit us the next time you’re in the area!

Stayed here during a snowy day! Rooms were beautiful, comfortable and very new! Pool was small but nice. Front desk person was personal and friendly! We took time and ate the breakfast and there were many options and breakfast attendants were also very friendly! Highly recommend!

Great place to stay! Clean and very nice rooms with a sitting area, refrigerator and microwave. Breakfast is free and includes juices, sausage, bacon, yogurt, fruit, cereal, etc. Pool is small but nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Only shortcoming is the wifi which was essentially unusable because it was so slow. Staff stated that the system was overwhelmed and couldn't be fixed. After our stay we were contacted by a manager who apologized for the shortcoming and said a new wifi system was to be installed. Very nice and classy touch.

Highly recommended for couples or families when going to rapid city or the black hills. Location is very convenient. We would definitely stay there again.

We brought our granddaughter west to see Mt. Rushmore (her request). We stayed at the Comfort Inn Suites. What a great experience. The rooms were large and so was the bathroom. Sophie loved the pool. The breakfast was a complete hot breakfast. It was close to the Dakota Restaurant which was an excellent steak house with a menu just for Sophie. Wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Ask for the first floor if you have children, close to the pool, exercise room and laundry.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for the wonderful review! I’m so happy to hear that you and your granddaughter had such a great experience at our hotel. It’s always fun when the kids want to visit a place such as Mt. Rushmore! We love having the Dakotah Steakhouse next door because a great meal is only a short walk across the parking lot. Please stay with us again the next time you visit the Black Hills!

An excellent hotel except in a storm the elevator rains on you when its storming so I took the stairs back up from the pool which was too cool for me to swim in nice and clean though. The spa was too hot for me too so I went back tp my room and relaxed in a nice tub of bubbles.They should really get that elevator vent fixed it was running water down the lights and it was a little scary

Room Tip: all are good

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for taking time to review our Platinum Award Winning Hotel! I’m sorry to hear that our pool temperatures didn’t agree with you but I’m happy to hear you found relaxation in your suite! We rarely do get the perfect combination of wind and rain that blows it right into the ventilation system but not to worry, there is no harm done and we have addressed this issue. We hope you will stay with us the next time you’re in the Black Hills! We’ll have some fresh, warm cookies waiting for you!

I don't give 5 stars to a chain type hotel, but if I did, I'd give this hotel the 5! Nice people, very clean and bright, large room, not noisy and an ok location for the local fair grounds! A deal all around. About 10-15 minutes from the airport servicing Rapid City.

Room Tip: Its a quiet area, off Interstate 90, so no good or bad room selection. One side faces the parking l...
