I believe this motel has the #3 rating in Rapid City because of its location out of the city and away from the chain motels on the interstate. The price is also right for the budget-minded traveler and the view is very good, especially if you like a panoramic sunrise.
On the downside, the wall-mounted heater sounds like an airplane and never shuts off - you are either roasting or freezing. If you don't need it or don't care, it's an OK place. Also the hot water ran out halfway through filling the tub, but it was OK for a quick shower the next morning.
While I prefer to stay downtown for $20 more, I would stay here over any of the chain motels located on the north side of town.
