This hotel was adequate. No complaints but nothing stood out. The breakfast was mostly powdery and over sweet.

I had not stayed in a Howard Johnson's in many, many years and was just a bit apprehensive about staying in one, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Howard Johnson in Rapid City is located close (few minute drive) to the very nice downtown area of Rapid City. My husband and I stayed for three nights in September. The price... More

We were on a bus trip from back east and stayed here for 3 days. Very nice place to stay. Bed was comfy and room was clean. Breakfast in the mornings was free and not bad. Hotel was close to several attractions that we went to.

This hotel is about a 30-40 minute drive to Mount Rushmore. We chose this place for the distance and the price. Oh, and the overall reviews. It's near the main street, which is convenient. The staff were friendly upon check-in. The room was a good size and the beds weren't bad. They provide a mini fridge and microwave which is... More

For a mid-range hotel, we were completely impressed and happy with Howard Johnson in Rapid City. The front-desk staff were more professional and friendly than some higher-end hotels. The rooms were sparkling clean and the nicer suites quite lovely - and at a great value. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of pillows. Might have liked some robes... More

The hotel staff were friendly. The breakfast was nice. They did serve the same thing every day for the four days we were there. There were many tour buses so the hotel was pretty full but it wasn't an issue. The mature guests were very friendly and courteous of others. The pool area and hot tub were nice and basically...
