“Great hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel, kids loved the elevator. The rooms were very clean and spacious. In a very nice location and staff was very helpful. Only issue that we had was the air conditioner wasnt work and the room was very hot the first day.

Dear Brandon K,

The kids love the glass elevator. I apologize for the lack of air conditioning. I know the day you are talking about. Our Chillier fan motor had malfunctioned and by the time we got it to re-start the build did get warm. After the restart it took a couple of hours to cool things off again. I hope the rest of your stay was satisfactory.
Thank you for your review and travel safe,

Chris

Nice hotel with clean rooms and at a great location. Service was very good. The property is rather old and in urgent need of upgrades and renovations to current standards. Walking distance to downtown and great parking in front of the hotel.

Dear millionmilesflyer,

Thank you for your review. Our property is aging but the ownership has already started renovation. The rooms were complete in June. Starting in October we will begin renovation in the Food and Beverage areas, lobby, and atrium. We are planning the renovation to be complete my spring of 2015. Our renovation is structure around busy volumes so we won’t be disturbing and displacing our guest.
Thank you again and travel safe,

Chris Johnson

The kids loved the glass elevator the best. The rooms were very nice, clean and quite! Beds were super comfy and bathroom was updated! The location wasn't as close as I thought to the highway (traveled back and forth to Rushmore and Crazy Horse) but very close to downtown. We didn't have time to explore down there but loved the bronze presidential statues on all the corners.

Dear Caressa V,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. The glass elevators is a big hit with kids and adults too, they just won’t admit it. The downtown salute to the Presidents is really cool and could take hours to explore if you like Presidential history. They make great photo ops too!

Thank you for staying with us and travel safe,

This was a very nice hotel with comfortable beds. The rooms are big and very clean. They have a nice samsung TV with a USB port. The staff was very helpful - One morning we asked for plates and forks to eat some pie we had bought and the staff immediately brought them to our room. The only drawback was the pool being open to midnight which seemed to lead to people coming to their rooms late and slamming doors. Other than that I would definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed here on our way to Mt Rushmore. We found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable. The location is within walking distance of downtown Rapid City. The staff was very knowledgeable and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.We used the gym which had good equipment. Overall a great experience,

This hotel is close to the highway, close to historic downtown and the dinosaur park, and close to some great restaurants. Our room was very clean and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel is lovely, and the waterfall in the atrium helps drown out noise. We couldn't hear our neighbors at all. Very pleased with our stay here. Breakfast buffet is very tasty and kids under 12 eat free with an adult.

Dear MNMillers,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. You are so right, we are so close to the local attraction and just a 10 minute walk to downtown. The rooms have been renovated and the hotel is very clean. Our housekeeping staff makes sure of that! I glad you got to enjoy the breakfast buffet and wow the kids eat free what a savings.

Everything from the room to the Drinks and Food, fantastic. It's my second time in a few years, the hotel has been upgraded with many new looks. I love it, I only wish our company had more business in Rapid City. A destination must.
