I stayed here on my most recent visit to rapid to do some last minute Christmas shopping. I was quite impressed. The staff were very friendly and understanding. The check in was simple. They even gave nice discounts to the attached businesses. Very busy place, quite popular I imagine being attached to a waterpark. My daughter loved it by the... More

I stayed mid December in the middle of what must have been a huge tournament for kids. I must say that despite the bus loads of them, the hotel was still very quiet and clean!! The breakfast even remained continuously stocked through the rush. Parking was tight but, id still stay again.

We traveled here during the Christmas holiday as a half way point to our family. The hotel was far better than we could have expected! The staff was superior, the rooms were in excellent condition, and the indoor waterpark was such a huge hit with our kids. I enjoyed floating around the lazy river and the huge hot tub. It... More

We stayed here for three nights with our 2 young boys. Rooms were extremely small and the worst , cheap mattress we have ever slept on. Slanted to the middle like they were very old. Pool area is staffed by lifeguards, but DO NOT depend on them. None of the lifeguards payed attention to children going down slides, swimming etc.... More

I visited in Oct of 2014, and being a housekeeper, so a little bias but not anything over the top, It was not very clean....The bed comforters had stains, the outside pattern cover had stains, the chair in the room had a stain on it, the counters weren't very clean, and the floor wasn't very clean either.

We've never stayed at this hotel before but chose it based on what some friends of ours said. We decided to make this the meeting point for the whole family. We stayed 5 days and had multiple rooms and everyone loved it. The front desk staff was wonderful. Everyone we talked to was great and really helpful. The water park... More

We stayed at this LaQuinta twice on the way to and from a trip to Wyoming. The hotel met our expectations in every way as we have stayed with this chain on numerous occasions in other parts of the country. Only difference was that the room was much larger than we expected. As always our two Goldens were welcome and... More
