We stayed at this Econo Lodge two nights during Labor Day weekend as part of a two-week trip to the Black hills and Yellowstone. This was my third visit to this hotel over the past year, and I decided a favorable review is long overdue!
This hotel was thoroughly renovated not long ago, and the property surpasses the quality of any Econo Lodge in which I have ever stayed. The rooms are beautifully furnished, there is really nice carpeting throughout, many first floor rooms have two entry doors (from the hallway and the parking lot), there is a pool and water slide, a laundry room is on the second floor, each room has a refrigerator and micro-wave, internet is free, and there is a nice area for the free breakfast, that includes waffles and a large assortment of food. The only negative on the renovation: They forgot to install a railing on the stairway to the second floor!
Management is very hospitable, and the staff consistently goes out of their way to provide top-rate service. The entire hotel is clean and well maintained. With all of this, the rates are a bit more reasonable than most of the surrounding hotels in Rapid City.
The location is excellent. This hotel is right off the I-90 freeway, Rushmore Mall is nearby, there is an incredibly good Golden Corral nearby, plus Pirate's Cove mini-golf is just down the street. This is simply a great place to stay when visiting the Black Hills region!
