“Great History, Location, and Service”

My daughter and I stopped here on a road trip from Virginia to Montana. This is a charming historic hotel in the heart of the city, close to restaurants and shops. Front desk staff was welcoming and the room comfortable. The price was very reasonable for a downtown, landmark hotel. Hope to return!

Very nice room with restaurants to choose from that were very unique and they had great food. We loved that we were downtown and could walk to many of the local shops. We spent time relaxing in the coffee shop on the first floor, it had a atmosphere. The hotel itself is very impressive, we learned a lot about the area. We will return to the hotel, enjoyed the historic feel as well.

Room Tip: (There is not a pool or spa but I had to click on something to submit the review.) Make sure that...

Be sure to put your flashers on when checking into hotel. I parked out front and failed to see the flashers required sign and was inside checking in for no more than 10 min and came out to car and had a parking ticket on my car because of no flashers. Thanks for the hospitality Rapid City

Thank you for your recent stay at the Hotel Alex Johnson, I want to apologize for the parking ticket you received while checking in. We do offer convenient loading and unloading area in front of the hotel but the city does ask for the flashers to be turned on for safety reasons. I would like to make up for this rude welcoming on a future stay with us, please stop at the Front Desk and ask for the General Manager. Thank you and I hope to see you in the near future.

Nice stay at this hotel. The hotel definitely has a wonderful character beginning with its downtown location and continuing to the historic decor in the lobby and the ambiance of the rooms. We enjoyed our meal at the hotel restaurant on the first floor. Very good chicken quasadillas! The bed was great. Definitely recommend this hotel compared to cookie cutter hotels around town.

We stayed Friday night for our Anniversary. Walked around downtown, Margaritas at Qa Pasa and then dinner one block over at Tally's. The hotel is in the perfect location to enjoy the downtown area. Hotel staff were courteous and professional. We even got a complementary drink at our choice of Seattle's Best Coffee, the Vertex Sky Bar, or Paddy O'Neills. We recommend the Hotel Alex Johnson.

As an Express Jet Airlines employee, I have stayed at the Alex Johnson many times, and found the staff to be exceptionally helpful! Special Kudos for Kurt, at the front desk, Pam the head housekeeper, and Manager Kevin for their care and concern during my extended stay Jan 9 thru Jan 11, 2014. They made a difficult situation pleasant, and they kept me calm by assuring me that everything would be OK! I deeply appreciate every courtesy that they extended to me!

Stayed at the Alex Johnson for one week. The staff are just great. The rooms are satisfactory, and could be larger or perhaps the beds in some of the rooms should be smaller. No joking there! Beds are very comfortable, but for the most part too large for the room or perhaps the other furniture is too big.....so vice-versa. Loved the location and the personnel. The hotel doesn't have breakfast included, but pay attention to the card they give you on arrival as it does provide some discounts in the adjoining coffee shop and pub for later in the day.

Room Tip: We always go higher since staying in Madrid, Spain. Believe suites are suppose to be larger as are...
