Stayed here one night... hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Their's also a water park attached to the hotel. I believe if you stay with La Quinta you get a discount to the water park Hotel is about 30 miles north of Mt. Rushmore.

I have a child with food allergies so it was a pleasant surprise to find Sliders had... More

The front desk staff was unusually nice. Plus, they give you two free drinks at Sliders upon check-in. A nice bonus was being able to stay on FlexPerks points... More

There were so many things wrong with this place I'm not sure where to start. The room was dirty, outdated, stinky, and generally uncomfortable. We asked for two queen beds and were refused, even though it was on our confirmed reservation. They tried to get me to pay another $100 on top of the $170 I already paid. They were... More
