This is a nice, clean place with a good location and good pool. The nicest thing for us as a family of 4 was that the room had 2 king beds and was reasonably priced. It was only about a 30-45 minute drive to Mount Rushmore. It is also located near a school so it was a quiet area when...

Right off the Interstate and in a so-so area (would not walk around at night), but the hotel is secure, nice and clean, and very close to downtown. Fridge and microwave in room. The front desk staff gave excellent restaurant recommendations and even offered discount coupons for a few. Happy hour with beer and wine in the evening was a...

We stopped in Rapid City and checked into the Howard Johnson around midnight after booking it through Hotwire. We were delighted to find that the pool area was open 24 hours, and the two hot tubs and warm pool were exactly what we needed after a long day on the road. The towels were provided, but were curiously small. The...

Hotel was clean and breakfast was great. Internet was spotty and circulation fans where very loud in our 4th floor room and the pool was freezing! Staff was friendly.

The front desk staff were great when we needed them. They even recommended two outstanding places to eat. We had no issues during our stay and would stay here again. The only thing I would recommend is to get some better lighting in the bathrooms especially over the sinks. Also it was difficult to stay connected to the Internet.

This hotel was easy to find. Not too far from the airport. Nice room. Good Breakfast. Just down the road from Fort Hays. People at the front desk were nice. A/C worked. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

I think this was the best H.J. I've stayed in. Clean, fresh, comfy beds, quiet, helpful staff. Looked like it was recently re-done. Would stay here again! Close to downtown. Worked well for our family!

Everything they say about this hotel is correct. All the staff is so friendly and always speak. Beer/wine and popcorn every night. Something like a light bulb need to be fixed, they fix it right away. Great location to travel to and from. Stayed 1 week and never had a bad day there.

We stayed at Howard Johnson's Rapid City from 8/20/2015 until 8/24/2015. The location was convenient to Interstate 90 and to downtown shopping and restaurants. The room was spacious and very clean. The front desk staff, particularly Jen, was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again without hesitation.
