Stayed here for one night as part of a road trip. From the outside the motel did not look great but once we went into our room we were positively surprised. It was spacious, the wifi worked well and everything we needed was there. The location is good, really close to downtown Rapid City. It's a shame the motel does... More

The motel was clean and quiet. We had a good time. We've paid more for less room. The motel is close to downtown Rapid City, which makes it convenient for shopping and restaurants. It's nice to be able to park right outside the door to your room.

Yes we are located approx 2.5 miles from downtown (maybe even less than that!) We are also only 23 miles from Mt. Rushmore and close to most other destinations in the Black Hills area. Being right off one of the main streets in Rapid City you can easily get anywhere all while avoiding the interstate traffic. More

This was pretty much the last room in Rapid City, so I wasn't expecting much. It's off the main drag in a light industrial area pretty isolated from any other touristy locales. Three of us were traveling and we were concerned that the place was a little shady, but were put completely at ease by Markie. She runs the place,... More

I was a little scared when we pulled in, but this place had nice rooms that had been updated very recently (everything was new except for maybe the shower curtain rings that were pink). The rooms make up for what it is lacking in curb appeal.

I would like to start off by saying that based on previous reviews I felt like I did pretty well in finding this "gem" prior to my stay. Also I would like to mention that I did stay on the single most busy day of the year according to Dave, the front desk employee. Upon arrival I was still hopeful... More

The location of the motel was a little odd but it was actually convenient to get to the major roads. It is an older building but the rooms have been updated and mine was fresh, clean and well furnished. The bed and pillows were good and I slept well both nights. The wifi also worked well throughout my stay.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We may seem like an odd location, but when this was build Omaha (Hwy 44) was the main road in and out of town (so we were 'the' location to have), when the town started to expand hotels and motels were built along the interstate and other main roads that were developed.

The staff was so friendly. They pointed us to a great restaurant and a college with dinosaur fossils and gems! The room was newly renovated and so beautiful. I would suggest coffee maker in the room, was able to get coffee in the office.

The Avanti is a perfect place to stay. The rooms were very clean and design very well. The staff was nice and very helpful. We stayed for two nights. It's a great hotel for families or just couples. And the hotel is easy to find! We will be definitely be booking again when we go back!
