“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Great location for access to the Rapid City tourist attractions. Easy to find, close to the interstate and several food options. The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, affording an excellent sleeping environment. The pool area was clean and well stocked.

Excellent stay, great eats, easy free airport shuttle. Manager & staff very friendly, willing to help. Very fresh food, cozy but huge rooms, easy to use TVs and bath/shower controls (important in a hotel) Excellent indoor pool/hot tubs/sauna with ample towels.

During the State Volleyball Tournament 2012, our volleyball teams stayed at the Holiday Inn Rushmore Plaza. This hotel had great hospitality and customer service. One elevator was "down" and challenged us to use the stair with pedometers, helped with obtaining necessities forgotten at home, and even prepared a room with refreshments for the girls to hang out in. And the Chai Tea in the gift store is AMAZING!!

We loved hosting all the Volleyball players this year. The girls were fun to interact with and seemed to really enjoy our Fitness Challenge in the Stairwell. Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We appreciate your business very much. I agree the Chai in our coffee shop is amazing. Hope to see you again very soon. Sherry Beck, General Manager

I stay in rapid on a regular basis and i dont think ive slept in a more comfortable bed, its centrally located in rapid so it is conveinent to use the shuttle to take you about anywhere you need to go. No continental breakfast but they do have a resturant

I brought my girls volleyball team for a state tournament and everything was fantastic. They must make their employees take NICE pills before they come to work each day! Top to bottom everyone was great! I strongly recommend The Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn! Coach N

Just stayed for three days and found this hotel centrally located, with a beautiful central atrium and waterfall and two indoor jacuzzis and pool which I unfortunately did not have time to enjoy. I stayed in a two room suite which was nicely appointed, roomy and quiet. My room had a refrigerator, two TV flat screens, microwave and soft clean bedding with a wonderful mattress. The amenities were average as we're the bathroom fixtures. The hotel dining room serving breakfast was excellent with good food at reasonable prices. I appreciated all service personnel at this facility, the employees at the front desk, and servers in the dining room. I enjoyed the happy hour the last night there...they had $5 beers and $5 pulled pork sandwiches which were HUGE, too big for just happy hour, and phenomenal! What a treat! The elevators weren't all working, but other than that I would recommend this property if you are going to Rapid City. There was plenty of close parking and it seemed like a friendly neighborhood.

Thank you so much for the detailed review. We really appreciate your business and your feedback. I want to make sure and let you know that the downtime for the elevator is part of a renovation plan to make our elevators faster and more efficient. I can assure you this is only a temporary inconvenience. We look forward to serving you again in the future. Sincerely, Sherry Beck, General Manager
