Was "trapped" in Rapid City for six days by poor weather and a bad head cold while delivering a small aircraft across the country. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. Jane at the front desk in particular was wonderful and very helpful. Entire staff was excellent including restaurant (Minerva's, collocated).
Room was good size, comfortable and clean. Excellent wifi. If/when I return to Rapid City again I will only stay at this hotel.
This struck me as a very well run property with very professional, friendly staff with a real customer service ethic.
No negatives and fully recommend this hotel.

We stayed enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, and the hotel was clean and very nice. We loved the pool. The kids played and played and we were the only ones in the pool. There were slides and a ship for the kids to play on in the pool. We will stay again

The waterpark for our 5 and 3 year old was the reason we stayed here. The water was so cold they played for 10 minutes and wanted to go to the hot tub. It was a different layout and a little confusing. No breakfast offered and the beds need more blankets just for comfort. The noise was pretty disturbing throughout the night, we had a room next to an entrance door.

Room Tip: We won't be staying here again.

Large property that has plenty of space for a large gathering. Good location near the Rushmore Mall, I-90 and other retail shopping and restaurants. Some issues with long lines at check-in, but nothing that wasn't bearable.

Room Tip: Several areas to pick from - pool, restaurant, etc. - depends on traveler's needs.

This is a nice newer hotel, located close to shopping malls, and restaurants. The food is good but a little on the pricey side. It has an amazing pool and waterpark for kids. It has a grassy courtyard in the center of the hotel with a gazebo where you can smoke and relax. The big downer about this hotel is the total lack of an elevator so difficult if you have special needs, but you can get downstairs rooms with patio doors to the courtyard.

Room Tip: If you have special needs, book a ground floor room. There are no elevators!

The front desk personnel are friendly and helpful. The van driver to and from the airport was delightful. The room had plenty of room. Flat screen t.v. with a good variety of stations to pick from. Good water pressure in the shower. Only down side is that there is no elevator; so, if you have a bag larger than a carry-on, good luck. It's like Europe - hauling the bag up the stairs.

I did attend a conference and it is a hike from the room to Convention Area II. They said it was a 1/4 mile on way. Easy way to get your steps in.

Room Tip: Big bag? Ask for ground floor as there is no elevator.
