We had a spare last night on our holiday and decided to go back to Rapid City. We looked in the phone book and came across the Avanti. So phoned and booked as the price was very reasonable. When we drove up to the Motel it was in an unusual area, part residential and part business. But we were pleasantly... More

This looks like it would be a dive kind of stay, but my friend and I were pleasantly surprised at how current the rooms were furnished. Large space for 2 queen beds. Small kitchenette area was a nice touch also. Super clean. The only downside was how tiny the tub/toilet room was compared to the rest of the space.

This hotel was clean and comfortable but s bit dated. We arrived after office hours and the manager left out the key with directions and instructions for the room. Parking and wifi was included in the price. The aircon was s bit noisy and the linen a bit old but i did not pay a lot for the room. No... More

Booked online because of close proximity to the airport (late arrival & super early departure time) and the price, but once inside our assigned room we were so pleased that we booked this motel. It is the best deal in Rapid City...recent renovations that the young owners have being doing to the room was very well done from the tile... More

I booked this online. It was very reasonably priced so really just was hoping for a comfortable room. When I drove up we were kind of concerned. The place looked very clean on the outside but the sign looked a little aged. I checked in, the staff was super friendly and helpful. We went to the room they assigned us... More

We are on a 19 day road trip. So far, this room was way better than several other rooms. Nice renovations. Big tv. The parking is cramped. When we pulled up outside I was very concerned, but it turned out to be very nice inside. I would stay here again. The neighbors downstairs banged on the ceiling while we were... More

Booked this place online fairly cheap and wasn't expecting much. But it turned out to be a lovely stay! The photos are after a night of staying, but the place was really clean. We were in the basement apartment. It was really nicely decorated and all the furnishings seemed fairly new. There are also two large wall mounted TVs facing... More

We stayed 3 nights. Our room was clean when we arrived & was made-up nice each evening when we got back. It was nice to hear music from downtown, but we couldn't hear it when inside, so we were able to sleep well. Not much traffic on the street, so that was really nice. Close to a lot of different...

Room appeared to be recently remodeled. We were in the "apartment" which had a full refrigerator, stove and all necessary utensils although we did not need them. Room was very clean and comfortable, except the air conditioner was by the door. The way the room was designed, the cool air never made it close to the bedroom. Luckily two fans... More

Avanti Motel Rapid City was part of a road trip to Devil's Tower and Mt. Rushmore. It was our second motel out of four, and was our least favorite motel and our least favorite stop. We were there on a Thursday and went downtown for dinner. We could not find parking, so went a few blocks further back and found... More
