Originally when I planned my trip to SoDak, I do my research, and so should you. From the get, I was going back and forth between The Rushmore and the Alex Johnson Hotels. Save yourself a major headache and stay here!! Be sure to read ALL the reviews about the Alex Johnson! The Rushmore is in a good location, you can walk to everywhere in downtown, they have free parking, the staff were friendly and very helpful AND most importantly the rooms were CLEAN, and good sized and unlike the reviews about the Alex Johnson, the walls were NOT paper thin! We stayed 3 nights here and the only noise that kept me awake was the unrelenting sound of my friend snoring!!! Badlands National Park is about 1 hour East and Mt. Rushmore is about 30 minutes South and Crazy Horse just 15 minutes further SW than Rushmore. I have ) bad things to say about this place, and trust me I am pretty picky!

Our first stay in Rapid City, this is THE place to stay, imo. Location couldn't have been better, within walking distance of the entire downtown, which is a terrific downtown, btw. Lots of restaurants and watering holes, the architecture is classic Western, the establishments are very up-to-date. The hotel supposedly had a very good restaurant, though we did not try it. Free parking, very clean and modern, I don't think there's a better place to stay in Rapid City proper.

Part two, from our cross-country trek West, the Rushmore was decided from a list of options, which included the Cambria, Tru, and the Hampton Inn. We picked the Rushmore for its location downtown (easy access/drive to Mt. Rushmore and the West-ward drive southwest). We thought the other options northeast of the city. had nice pools / waterslides, but didn't fit into our drive itineary (plus we didn't want Olive Garden or Red Lobster). Our first impression was this is a very nice business hotel with artistic features. In our trip (in total), the Rushmore had the most artisitically-muraled rooms. The internet was decent, but did the trick for the kiddos. But the one thing I wished this hotel could be better were family friendliness. There's no pool or sitting areas on the main floor, instead a large lounge/bar/restaurant area with celebrity photos. Additionally, the staff didn't really wear their masks 'all-the-time' as other places. I noticed only when customers were around (and inside) did the receptionists keep their masks on. I would recommend this hotel for business and friends staying overnight. If business, the Alex Johnson Hotel is a comparable option as it has the only Starbucks on-site. But the free parking at the Rushmore can't be beat for its location. From rating perspective, for business/friends, I would give 4-stars, but for families, 3-stars. Tip: Go to Murphy's Pub or Firehouse Brewing Company for drinks. Asian food options are good off East Blvd (7-10 mins drive east of Downtown).

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your input and I'm glad you chose to stay with us knowing we did not have a pool. We do have seating in our lobby area in 3 different areas. Regarding masks, neither the State of South Dakota or the City of Rapid City have ever required masks. We have signs posted throughout the hotel that masks are optional. Our Front Desk, Bellmen and Restaurant staff wear masks while interacting with guests for their own protection and that of our guests during these challenging times. I hope your family vacation was memorable and safe.

Nothing special about front desk check-in or check-out. Trying to make an older hotel modern. Sliding 'Barn door' over the bathroom. No fan in bathroom. Small rooms for the price. Noisy - motorcycles until 1am, Train whistles starting at 4:45AM. Be prepared to pay for breakfast.
