This is a great hotel. I am a business traveler, and was intruiged by the concept of this hotel. The rooms are delightfully funky, decorated in a modern-rustic western theme. I loved the red countertops in the bathroom and the organic toiletries! The staff at the front desk and at the restaraunt and lounge were also friendly and went above and beyond. Ethan (I think his name was Ethan?) at the 445 lounge accommodated my need for a steak the first night I was there, and fixed me a delicious martini the next night!

The only reason I didn't give this hotel 5 stars was that the last night I stayed there there was construction going on above my room that I believe went on past a time appropriate for a hotel. I shouldn't have to call the front desk and complain about drilling at 9:30 at night. But in their defense they did apologize and the drilling stopped shortly thereafter.

Adoba is on it's way to five stars!

They've done a nice job with this hotel. Was formerly a Radison I guess. The common areas are nice and the amenities in the rooms are good quality. The room itself was ok, not great, not bad. The train running by at night was annoying, but that's the reality of downtown Rapid. Maybe if my room were on the other side? The service was terrific.

Great location, downtown close to bars & restaurants. Staff was friendly, big breakfast buffet
was included in the stay was excellent compaired to some hotels who only have continental
breakfast. Beds were comfortable, mini cheesecake, glazed nuts & strawberries put in your
room everyday was a special treat. Nice to have a coffee shop, bar & restaurant in the hotel.
Our room was on the 8th floor and the lighting was dim. The only bright light was in the
bathroom. I have only one suggestion put one bright light in the room. With 9 floors the
elevator was fast, didn't have to wait long at all. Hotel was full. No matter what hotel people
stay at they are going to complain, but my advise to anyone who reads this go stay there. I read
some of the reviews before we stayed don't believe them all. It was worth it, we will be back.

Unless you stay in the eco rooms, this is a very outdated hotel in downtown Rapid City. The location is good, staff was helpful and food is good. The rooms however, were a real disappointment. The decor in the hallways and rooms were outdated and worn out--think older motel 6 or days inn. The noise from outside was unbearable (you could hear the outside bar crowd and cars like they were in your room and this was in January). The doors slammed shut so you could hear them all night.
I always look for highly rated hotels on priceline, etc. for a good value as I can handle a few nuiances--which is what you usually get for the "value" part. We left after one night and I have never done that before. I should have listened to the other reviews.

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs

Nice rooms, got an upgrade - an excellent bargain from Expedia. Staff was friendly and helpful (desk, housekeeping, and restaurant). Great location downtown, close to shopping, restaurants, and bars. Comfortable room furnishings, computer access, well-appointed weight room. The breakfast (included) was incredible. The building/room maintenance could be much better. Another drawback was the bathroom - very tight quarters. Highly recommended.

Great rooms, wonderful personnel and really good four star food in the hotel's restaurant Enigma!! I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rapid City! Try the mystery dinner in the restaurant and then go to the martini bar and have one of their specialty Martinis..I love the fact that the hotel is Eco friendly and all of the food in the restaurant is organic.

My wife and I stayed here for several days in August 2012. We loved it. We were in one of the new "Eco" rooms and loved the look of the barnwood and mural. The linens and comforter were the best I've ever used. The shower head was a water-saver, which always scares me, but this one was great. Top this off with a very friendly staff who were willing to do whatever we needed made our stay extra special. If I owned this place, I'd invest in making the elevators newer and faster, and I'd hurry to upgrade all of the rooms to the new design.
