Due to construction hotel was a little hard to get to. They upgraded us to a king room which was really nice. Only problem was breakfast. Even though we went down about a half hour before they closed, there was hardly anything out.

Enjoyed our night here. Check in staff all very helpful. Bed was comfy, service friendly, and a reasonable breakfast. Best thing was the happy hour free beers when we checked in after a long day on the road!

Visiting Rapid City for the RV show at the Civic Center so the location was wonderful. Check in and check out was quick and the customer service representative was very pleasant. It was also very nice to have eggs with breakfast instead of just carbs.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our roadtrip. We were in a large, clean and comfortable room. The location is a little further out from the main area, though within walking distance. The service wasn't too good, though for the price, we didt care too much. The pool and spa was also good.

This hotel is clean and comfortable with some of the best people working there. They all went out of their way to be helpful and kind. They run a shuttle for you to use and during really busy times at the Civic Center you have a place to park and you do not have to walk long distances because they...
