WHAT A BARGAIN! The attached water park and restaurant make this inn a screamin' deal especially considering the VERY low rates. Very good breakfast with lots of hot choices. Looking forward to my next visit to Rapid City. Be sure to check out the museum at Ellsworth AFB. It's well worth the time.

Why do hotels have to have resort fees! Seriously, just put the price of the room you want per night on the room and be done!! There is an $8 PER NIGHT fee for this hotel. They call it a resort fee but the definition of resort sure has changed. There is a water park and a restaurant??? Then you...

While we are happy to hear that overall your visit to LaQuinta was wonderful, it’s a disappointment that even one aspect of your stay failed to exceed your expectations. Thank you for your honest feedback, and we hope that you will consider giving us another opportunity.

We stayed four nights. The room was clean, staff were very nice, breakfast was great. We only missed maid service one day, just didn't go to our room. As soon add we called the front desk, someone was sent to clean our room. Two free drinks a night was awesome and the water park attached to the hotel was great.

Clean rooms. Great indoor water park, Watiki! This hotel was so good to us when we had a sick kid all weekend. They kept bringing by clean bedding, cleaned our room well between nights, and all with a good attitude. Thank you La Quinta!

This is one of the most beautiful La Quinta Inns. Upon checking in, Kendsy was so cheerful, friendly and professional. We are Elite members in their reward program and Kendsy was right on top of that with our free upgrade. We had a beautiful two room suite for the night. Kendsy made us so welcome and appreciated.

So I stayed at the LaQuinta Inn over the weekend of January 14th and was blown away by Katie and Cassidy at the front desk!! Those ladies went out of their way to answer all of my questions and provide me with everything I needed during my stay. Will definitely stay again!
