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.

I very seldom book at this kind of hotel for in the past I have not had very good endings, but tonight was a delightful surprise. This one was very clean, had an elevator, bed was very comfortable.

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... More

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. The first night, my... More

For a budget hotel you can't go wrong staying here. The rooms were clean and super quiet (not always the case at budget hotels), the staff were helpful, the breakfast was way beyond continental, and the hotel is very close to restaurants and shopping. Whenever we visit family in Rapid City we will be sure to stay her. You get... More

This is not my first time to stay here. I keep coming back because the rooms are great, price is right, and there is truck parking. Staff is always excellent. After a long day of driving, not having to worry about having a room, shower, and a comfortable bed is a big plus. There's also lots of places to eat... More

We stayed on Saturday, October 8, 2016. A good night's sleep is a must so was pleased that our bed and pillows were very comfortable. We also enjoyed the morning breakfast as there was plenty of fresh fruit.

I was a little concerned about this place, but found it to be a nice place to stay. The room was pretty clean; I felt the hallways were a little confusing and dingy, but that wouldn't be enough for me not to book there again.
