My experience at the Howard Johnson in Rapid City was absolutely wonderful! Not only were the prices among the most competitive in Rapid, but the rooms were also very welcoming, comfortable, and clean. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating and provided quick service. The Manager's Happy Hour was a great way to relax after a long trip to South Dakota. The location of this hotel is also excellent. There are fantastic restaurants within walking distance. Also, it's not a long drive to South Dakota must-see attractions, such as Mt. Rushmore. I have nothing but positive comments to say about this hotel. Next time I'm in the Black Hills, I will definitely stay there again!

Checked in and the ladies at the front desk couldn't help us enough. Very Friendly, corteous and professional. Room was clean nice not old. The bath tub in rm 434 is horrible. One of the worst showers I've experienced. thus far. The door was sticky from the height of the new tile installed on the floor. The shower/tub fixture was OLD and sliding that lever for shower pressure I almost broke it as I was getting no pressure in the shower but plenty of pressure coming out the spout of the tub.
Bathroom is small and the vanity is in the room. We did have a micro fridge. Though ONLY during the STURGIS Motorcycle Rally was the price outrageous ($240 per night) Price gouging shouldn't be allowed. Hotel is 4 blocks from city center not a great walk in the heat of the day. Breakfast was good. Didn't use the indoor pool.

This was a pleasant surprise after a long day of exploring the scenic Black Hills. Our room was clean. The beds were firm & comfortable. The Manager's Happy Hour was a nice way to unwind (free beer, wine, soda, & popcorn). I didn't see any restaurants nearby, but pizza delivery was perfect for weary travelers. The continental breakfast had choices of fruit, bagels, bread, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, & a waffle maker.

Overall the hotel was very nice and a decent location for the rally. No food within walking distance. The bike washing area was nice to have. Housekeeping came through and did a good job cleaning the room and even threw away pizza we were saving. I talked to Lindsey at the front desk and she said no problem and ordered us another one. Come to find out she paid for it out of her own pocket. You just don't find to many people that go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Thank you Lindsey.
