Stayed here two nights while visiting Mt. Rushmore. Our hotel room was very clean. Easy to find, right off 90. Close to restaurants and gas stations. Would stay here again. Could use some complimentary items in rooms...lotion, soaps, etc. to make it really nice.

Thank you for leaving us a pleasant review. We do offer several toiletries in the room and have more available at the desk if a item was accidentally forgotten. Best of luck in all future travel adventures.

We stayed in a King Suite for the entire time we were vacationing in the Black Hills. The location was great for us- it is on the North side of Rapid City. Every day I think we had our room cleaned and towels replaced. There was a full size fridge and freezer with an ice machine. Our room also had...
