Everything about our stay here was friendly and fun - the Vietnam vets' reunion checking in at the same time, free drinks at the bar later, watching kids go down the water slides, free breakfast, and knowledgeable front desk staff who suggested several restaurants and outings. Easy to find and close to the interstate. We will stay here again!

We stayed here because we were meeting friends who were also traveling in South Dakota. Katie check us in and gave great suggestions for our dinner. Later in the afternoon Cassidy called to see if all was well Bed was comfortable. These were nice touches. Our first evening was less than ideal with noisy neighbor's in nearby rooms and in... More

We had to put our RV in the shop while here. The staff was courteous, extremely helpful, let us get into a room early. They are dog friendly! The continental breakfast is bountiful with a large selection of various foods to choose from. Our room was clean, decorative and accommodating for our needs.

The front desk staff was great! Whitley was a gem, she directed us to local places and filled all of our needs. We did not swim at the attached water park but did eat at the restaurant and enjoyed dinner, food was good and service was great. I liked the LQ breakfast it had everything from eggs to yogurt. They... More

We were a bit nervous as our stay approached as we had heard that kids typically run around and are all kinds of noisy here. However, we were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was at a pretty average noise level. It DID help that we came at the end of August, and so there were hardly any kids/families staying there....

I book myself and my mom into La Quintas all over the country. There has never been a bad experience for us and the rooms are always clean with plenty of towels and a great morning breakfast with hot foods. The beds are amazing, too! They are my go-to for a budget-minded traveler. There is a water park attached to... More

Great for dogs; fenced dog area and a lighted path for walks; attached to Watiki water park so it's sure to be popular with families; the Bright Side breakfast was lacking (unless you really love waffles) but thankfully there is also a Perkins right next door; maids seem to lack attention to detail (didn't clean tub one day; didn't get...

We didn't realize this place was connected to a water park. We knew it was close to one, but we must have mis-read the info b/c you can access the water park right from the hotel hallways. And that means lots of teenagers running past your door. It is very dog friendly, but so dog friendly that our dogs spent... More

This hotel was clean, mid-priced and very family friendly with a large water park for all ages. The breakfast was hot and good variety with plenty of seating. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were quiet.
