If you have no intention of using the water park you can opt out of the resort fee that the hotel charges but you néed to ask for that at check in. I read the reviews about this hotel before our stay and I would agree with most of them. The hotel was clean and we had no problems. There... More

Nice hotel, adjacent to the waterpark, so this would be great for a family with kids. Great hotel, breakfast, etc. [We didn’t see much availability of hotels in Keystone, so we thought Rapid City would be a good middle point between Black Hills & Badlands. We really enjoyed Black Hills, so decided not to visit Badlands. Rapid City is kind... More

We spent one night at the Fairfield Inn and Suites, and the next night at La Quinta, which gave us a perfect opportunity to compare them. In short, La Quinta won (until I was double billed for the stay). The front desk staff was unusually nice. Plus, they give you two free drinks at Sliders upon check-in. At the time... More

Traveling with the family dog means that you look to chains for stopping points. La Quinta was the chain we chose and when in South Dakota, we stopped at this particular La Quinta in Rapid City. Overall, I rate this an OK experience. I would have liked to had my child go to the pool but not for an additional... More

I found La Quinta online looking for a nice Rapid City hotel for my family of four, website and rooms looked wonderful, water slide sold me for the kids. I paid $584.67 total for 3 nights, wed/thurs/fri. I selected the "Executive King Suite", as I wanted a bit more space for the four of us. I don't mind paying more... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the beginning of a road trip through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado. I booked it because it was feasible to get two adjoining rooms so that my teens had one and I had one at the very beginning of the trip. We checked in and were asked to pay a... More

Our travel happened to be the same weekend as the Sturgis Rally. I was impressed with how efficient the staff was considering the influx of guests in the city and the number of families using the adjacent indoor water feature.

Wonderful hotel with clean rooms, nice beds, great Breakfast, and plenty of parking, also located right off I90. Close to a new perkins Restaurant right on the same location. Has a kid friendly water park, that goes right thorough the bar area. Kinda neat..
