Stayed spur of the moment. Marcus was very helpful and kind at check in. Room was very clean and roomy. Had a relaxing short stay but enjoyed it very much. Continental breakfast was fresh and the coffee was great. Would definitely recommend this motel.

We stayed two nights at this Mainstay hotel and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is very accommodating. We needed a handicapped room and the one we stayed in was perfect. The young girl that checked us in is named Kiley and she is definitely an asset for this hotel. We left to see the sights during the day and... More

This place has a very friendly staff at check-in. Room was adequate in size and mattress was very comfortable. Pillows were good size. Location was good and easy to find. Breakfast was somewhat lacking in variety.

We appreciate everyone that takes valuable time out of their busy lives to leave us a few comments on how we met your expectations. While we'd like every comment to be positive, we do understand that the best way to learn on what to fix is through our guest. I will be sure to bring up the breakfast variety to... More

We were there for one night before we flew out very early the next morning. I can't comment on the breakfast or the cleaning staff since we were in and out so quickly. The woman who checked us in was very nice and friendly. She set up a wake up call while we were standing right there to make sure... More

I'm sorry to hear it was such a short trip in the area. Perhaps we'll see you for a longer period of time on your next trip to the Black Hills. We have noticed that our hotel is difficult to find on some brands of gps. Unfortunately, we have no control over that one. We are located off of exit... More

While there are other hotels closer to the airport, I decided on this one because it had a free airport shuttle and was reasonably priced. I had an early flight out the next day and was not going to be able to return my rental car beforehand. I was able to call the hotel and get a pick up from... More

This was a great location for us. We felt like it was in the "newer" part of rapid city for lack of a better term. Everything was a good distance for us. Kids loved the pool. Free breakfast was ok. The usual free breakfast. We did like the kitchen with full fridge, dishwasher, microwave and stove top. We picked some... More

Mainstay Suites was built just three years ago, and placed nicely in an up and coming portion of Rapid City. Being just a few minutes away from the main part of the city, gives a quiet yet convenient location. Thank you for your review. More

Our group checked in on Labor Day and I was pleasantly surprised to get a large room with a full size coffee pot and coffee for it! Because it is an extended stay hotel your room isn't serviced everyday but I'm fine with that. The towels were replaced the second day. We had 2 beds, couch, table & chairs and... More

The kitchenettes definitely make traveling easier. Eating out is fun, but its nice to be able to cook as well. Seems like very few hotels offer this amenity. We try to change things up in our breakfast, who wants to eat the same thing every day? I appreciate the lovely review you left us. Best wishes to you. More

We like the setup - a room with a kitchenette, breakfast served on china plates (rather than depressing Styrofoam) and proper cutlery. Decent coffee on tap in the reception at all times of the day - and staff were helpful. As well as us English, there were Australian, German, Italian and French visitors.

Thank you for such a pleasant review. Not using Styrofoam is one way we try to help keep our planet green. Until we get space travel up and going, we only get this one.

Stayed here two nights while visiting Mt. Rushmore. Our hotel room was very clean. Easy to find, right off 90. Close to restaurants and gas stations. Would stay here again. Could use some complimentary items in rooms...lotion, soaps, etc. to make it really nice.
