While on a trip to Mt. Rushmore and the surrounding area, we stayed here a night before traveling further. As we were just staying the night, the water park didn't interest us (it would if we were able to stay longer) but would be a great attraction for kids! I did see some people that were confused that the water... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay. I appreciate your understanding regarding the water park.

Our room was very clean and nice, which it better be for $183 (including $17 in taxes). The WiFi worked well. The bathroom was clean and the shower was good. Breakfast has become a big part of the hotel value equation; the Fairfield breakfast was just okay. We would have liked it much better if the scrambled eggs were cooked... More

I will certainly pass on to the housekeeping department that you enjoyed your clean room. I will also make sure to speak to the breakfast staff regarding Marriott standards for breakfast. While I am pleased that no one left hungry I would much prefer to hear that everyone really enjoyed the food and extra value they get from our breakfast.... More

I like the Fairfield Inn, but I think the waterpark needs to be included with your stay. We received a discount on tickets but it was still $80 for our family of four to get into the park. It offers the same things as a typical indoor waterpark, big slides and a smaller piece of equipment for the little ones.... More

We stayed here because of the waterpark and the kid friendly atmosphere. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and I like having the breakfast included as a quick option in the morning. That being said, don't stay here if you are expecting a nice quiet vacation. It's definitely for families, which was a good thing for us!

Visited Mount Rushmore during Spring Break and I stayed with my daughter at the Fairfield Inn Suites. Not many options in Rapid City SD, but if I were to return to the area I would stay at the Fairfield Inn Suites. No frills, just a nice place to stay while visiting the Mount Rushmore area.

We stayed in Rapid City while visiting the Black Hills area. Our room was clean and housekeeping did a fantastic job of putting it back together every day. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was the same everyday which was a little disappointing but Perkins is connected to the hotel.

Needed a place to stay to visit Mt Rushmore. I try to stay at Marriott properties and there was a coupon for $90, subject to availability. I am a frequent visitor to Marriott and am a gold level member. The best price was $220 for the night, way above the $90. The cost wasn't the issue, it was Aaron the... More
