Perfect location for trips to Mt. Rushmore, Black Hills and the Badlands. Comfortable bed, quiet, even though within sight of the interstate. The included breakfast had sausages, eggs, waffles, fresh fruit, plenty more. Adjacent to an indoor water park, so good choice for kids.

Very clean and friendly employees. Good laundry facility. The grand kids loved the water park connected onto hotel. It was our last stop on our vacation and a very good place to stay and the kids wanted to do something like this, we had done so much driving on our trip so it was relaxing for them.

I am pleased that you and your family enjoyed the time spent here. Watiki is an excellent way for children to burn off some of that stored energy built up from traveling! I will pass along the the staff that you also enjoyed their friendly service and clean room. We do hope to see you again. Dawn Hedges General Manager More

Overall I would give the Fairfield Inn & Suites a positive review. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms are well kept, clean and fresh. I stayed at the hotel with my family and my nieces loved the water park (and I loved the bar attached to it). However, I cannot give the facility more than three... More

I stayed here two nights for business. This Fairfield Inn & Suites along with a Residence Inn and a non Marriott property are connected to an indoor water park. There are families with munchkins all over the place. If you are not a lover of families with attached munchkins then this might not be the place for you. Let me... More

i booked this motel well in advance due to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally happening when we were here for a family vacation. The hotel required you pay for the stay up front and has a no cancellation policy after June 1 (for a mid August stay). When I saw an over $100 difference in the price that I paid for... More

We have just stayed here three nights. As we entered our allotted room, I was slightly disappointed with the standard of the pillows, the cleanliness and the general decor. Average to awful to say the least. The Reception staff were welcoming, and were generally helpful throughout our stay, but the cleanliness of the room leaves much to be desired. For... More

Marriott gold elite member and this has been the worst stay I can remember in the brand. Unclean room and sheets. To call this room a suite was a travesty to suites.

Very nice place to stay. Rooms are quiet and clean. Great place to take the kids since there is a water park attached to the hotel.

This hotel is in a group of 3 that have direct access to the Watiki water park. We've seen the water park every year when we drive by and decided to plan it so we stayed there this year. We looked at all 3 hotels and this one was the cheapest while the other 2 were about the same. We... More
