The staff was very friendly and helpful! The pool and slide were amazing. The room's bathroom was designed weird with the short vanity. While the vanity had storage, I don't like to put things in drawers or under the sink for fear of forgetting the items at check-out and cleanliness of the storage area. Not to mention that two days/nights...

Third floor is the best unless you like to hear the people above you squeaking across the floor/ceiling. Family and seniors with grand kids enjoy the pool with its two-story slide. There are a number of good chain restaurants along with Target & Walmart close by.

This Econo Lodge is just off I-90 immediately north of Rapid City. The main attraction is a decent size pool with a 2-story water slide. It was packed with kids on the 3 days were stayed there. The kids really seem to enjoy it. The facility also has a nice laundry room. The room furnishing were worn and the break...

We stayed at this Hotel for Sturgis Bike Week. We paid extra to have the ground floor with the outside door - so we could park the cycle right in front of our room. Really liked being able to do this. The breakfast is OK. didn't want the same thing for 4 days, so we brought the pre-done bacon and...

We stayed recently at this motel during Sturgis Bike Week. Lodging is typically expensive during this time, but this motel was reasonably priced. We found the rooms to be clean. We were on motorcycles and it was nice to be able to park our bikes right outside our room door. Though we didn't used the pool it looked nice and...

Hotel was very clean. Nice decor. Staff was freindly. The breakfast wasn't all that great no sausages or waffles and the biscuits and gravy weren't that good. The pool was fun although crowded at times and the water slide is a little fast so if you have small children be careful. Overall I was very pleased with my stay.

This hotel was clean, has a decent continental breakfast, and good sized rooms. What I was disappointed in was that it seemed that management was cheap in areas of comfort and convenience. For example, the pillows on the bed were small, about the size of a throw pillow. We are staying here currently and have 2 days left and we...

This was a last minute stay but the downstairs room close to the exit was comfortable and easy the walk the pups. They have an inside two story waterslide into the indoor pool the children were loving. Adult time at the pool is from 10p to 11p.

Staff is very friendly. Almost too much. Pool is fun. Too much chlorine as most public pools. Very easy location for vacations as you have many options. Pillows could be better as the beds need updated. Clean rooms. Safe parking and close parking. Many restaurants around. Less than 30 minutes from MT. Rushmore. So many things nearby. Good hotel.

This hotel was ok, but not as good as others I have stayed in. The staff were young and not very professional and the breakfast was cold and had little to choose from. The rooms were updated and clean.
