I was with a bus group of 43 enjoying the sights of the area. We had originally had a 4 night stay then that changed with a historic snowfall; we had about 21 inches. I have never lived through a blizzard with the wind howling like a banshee. We stayed another 3 days while the roads were being cleared. I have to say it was quite the adventure and how fortunate we were to be in this place. The management and workers went over and beyond a call of duty to both our group and stranded travelers. The power went out but we managed well. The manager grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for a weary and hungry group. We had a breakfast every morning that came from our "refrigerator", the 10 ft mound of snow outside the patio doors (yogurt, milk, etc), There was an attitude of making the best of a difficult situation. I know I felt I was with friends with the way we were all treated during this unique situation. There is no way I can fully describe the kindness and caring of the people in charge of the Rapid City Americas Best Value Inn. I'm thankful we were here and not stranded out on the road. I will never forget their kindness and under trying conditions make their guests as comfortable as possible. There was a couple from Brazil; many truck drivers and ordinary folks who were so glad to be there.
