This is a typical Marriott property. The rooms were very nice. We stayed in a suite for five nights on a spring break vacation. Everything was very clean. The staff was very helpful. It was great having the water park at the hotel. We would go do stuff during the day and then hang out at the pool at night. The boys, ages 10 and 5, loved the water park. The restaurant attached to the hotel / water park was very good and had nightly specials which made dining very affordable. It is an easy and scenic drive to Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park.
The only thing preventing this from being a five out of five was the breakfast. First, it was too crowded. Because it was spring break, the hotel was most likely at capacity. The kitchen was simply not prepared. They consistently ran out of food and were slow to replace it. It was also nearly impossible to find a table. One of the mornings we did find a table, the hotel has a very odd placement for an outside door in the eating area. Workers and guests were using the door regularly and it shot a blast of frigid air in small eating area every time making the experience quite unpleasant.
