The room was clean and we like the idea of hard wood floor , no carpet which makes it smell clean, because you can vacuum carpet all you want you will not get all dirt out and room was quiet and real comfortable .Morning breakfast was excellent and had good choices. Close to restaurants and shopping. Will stay there again...

We arrived at midweek of the Sturgis Bike Ralley. I was worried about being able to park my truck and trailer. No worries they have a large parking area out back. Our room was clean and had easy access. They had a grill going every evening and had free hot dogs, sausage and burgers. (I think this was a Ralley...

The room was nice, quiet, etc. The only we had was the heat was set way too high. We were close to restaurants, shopping, the mall. and a gas station. It was a convenient location to I-90 and anywhere we wanted to go.

Good breakfast, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, fruit. Pool was still open, but did not have a chance to use the pool. Rooms were nice. No elevator and carpet in the hallways should be updated. This property had the best rates for Rapid City for the Labor Day weekend.

My family and I stayed here for a few nights when we visited South Dakota (Rapid City, Badlands, Mt. Rushmore). The room was comfortable and clean. The room and the hallways are well-lit. There is a microwave oven (but no electric kettle) in the room. There is a swimming pool near the dining area. The breakfast was good and staff...

Stay away from this hotel if you have pet allergies. We had booked a room here for 3 nights. We knew that the hotel was "pet friendly" from it's website, but little did we know that there was a dog show in Rapid City and the hotel would allow dogs to outnumber guests in its establishment.
