“Superb Service”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We arrived at the Adoba and we were disappointed by the outside. The hotel is doing a makeover and the hotel just did not look inviting. Then we walked in! There was champagne and snacks in the lobby and the staff was so nice and friendly. They took us up to our room which looked like the Badlands. It was just redecorated and it was so cleverly done. On one side of the hotel you have the train so we were lucky to be on the other side. A terrific breakfast buffet was included in the price! It was a great way to start each day! No matter what we needed the staff fixed the problem and did it so quickly we were amazed. The hotel has a great location being about 2 blocks from the Main Square. The restaurant Enigma has great service and a good variety of entrees. We received a free drink coupon which started our dinner off with a delicious martini. You will not be disappointed with your stay at the Adoba. The rooms are charming and the staff is courteous and attentive. A great deal- a great hotel.

Room Tip: Be high up on the road side so you do not hear traffic! Ask for light bulbs so you can see at night...

Green Features: Well Done. (minus the light bulbs) You know they care about the environment and have planned carefully.

On a last minute trip to South Dakota, we stayed our first night in Rapid City in a miserable 3-star hotel. We did some searching and came across the Adoba Hotel as a better option.

The second we walked through the door of our rooms, we knew we were in the right place. The rooms are beautifully designed with a style that makes it feel unique and comfortable.

The restaurant is excellent and the complimentary breakfast was an extra bonus. Room service one evening featured some fabulous desserts. We travelled with our teenagers and they loved the place too, and the staff was very friendly.

The location was great too. Easy access for our day trips to Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, Jewel Cave, Spearfish Canyon, and Devils Tower.

If you are looking for a hotel for your trip to this area, we recommend you look no further. The Adoba Eco Hotel simply gets it. Everything is done with a style and attention to detail that we've seen in many top-end hotels yet at a much more affordable price.

So instead of stuck in the same old standard hotel, our family felt the Adoba Hotel truly saved our vacation. It was such a great place to come back to at the end of the day, making our time together as a family even better. And we loved the blue doors too!

Very unique property that is clean and furnished just right. All the amenities included. Easy access to on-site souvenirs, snacks, deli, barista, delicious restaurant, and most unique, maps on the walls with details about places to go, things to do, see, etc.

Room Tip: 7th floor rooms seemed bigger than top floor (8).

Thank you sharing your experience with us. I really appreciate the point your make of taking care of the environment without skimping on comfort! Glad you noticed. For our traveler there is great technology out there to make this possible today. For example: shower heads designed for the water to push out via centrifugal force to give you an amazing shower while saving water....no more drip drip showers! Again, Thank you for noticing and sharing.

We flew into Rapid City to visit Mt Rushmore. We stayed at the Adoba Hotel from April 4-6, 2014. The hotel had a nice ambiance, room was spacious, and the price included a free shuttle from and to the airport, and 2 buffet breakfasts! Great downtown location, next door to a supermarket, and easy access to Mt Rushmore. Great value for the money! We only needed a rental car on Saturday, and because of their free shuttle, we saved one day of car rental. Our Sunday flight was at 7 am, so we would have missed the buffet breakfast, as the breakfast started at 6 am, but the restaurant staff packed us breakfast before 6 am, so we were able to leave the hotel at 6am. Very friendly staff! We would highly recommend Adoba!

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying on the 9th floor. I did not notice any noise from the other rooms.

My buddy and I were in Rapid City So. Dakota and I wanted to try the Adoba Eco Hotel. I am a world
traveler and this hotel is absolutely one of the best bargains for its elegance in the entire world. Our room on the 6th flooor was spacious, immacuately clean, and with comforters and other ammentities one would find in 5 star hotels costing $400 a nite +. Our cost with tax was $86 for the two of us with 2 Queen beds. I have paid more in some locations for a Motel 6 and put up with that many times but this hotel is truly one of the best values in the USA.

The owners are from Pakistan and their employees are first class and delighted to work with their employeer. One can always tell by the employees state of mind what the deal is with ownership and management. It is truly unbelieveable to me that this hotel is not a franchise yet. Although it is called the Adoba Eco hotel it could easily be called The Winds of Destiney. If you are ever near the black hills where I live in the old gold mining town of Lead, SD 3 miles from Deadwood (Las Vegas gambling) and incredible history or visiting Mt. Rushmore or the largest natural carving in the world, Crazy Horse stop by and visit with these folks.
The complimentary breakfast features custom made omletts from the chef Roger and well the breakfast alone in some places could easily run $30 for two guys like us. The bar lounge is spacious and elegant. One just wishes there was an Adoba Hotel in every city of the world with 50,000 people or more.
We remain as we are committed to Our Nations, Our Families, and to an Eternal God.

I stayed here recently, there were numerous events held at the Rushmore Civic Center and the hotel was busy. The rooms were up kept nicely, nice 8th floor view and a great downtown location, plus the fact they gave us free breakfast vouchers every day of our visit provided a great experience. Only problem I had was the sliding bathroom doors, it wasn't a deal breaker; just awkward.
