Friendly staff. Great food and choices. We would rather pay for a good breakfast on site. Clean and comfortable rooms. Nice pool. What more do you need. We have stayed at a variety of hotels in the area and this is our favorite.

Traveling to SD from Florida, we had a unique situation in that we were a family of 4 with three adults and one 9 year old. I needed three beds, and this hotel fulfilled that need for us. We also picked this hotel because we wanted easy on/easy off to the interstate. It was just that, in addition to very close to easy shopping like Target, Wal Mart, and Starbucks.

I believe the entire hotel is considered "suites" but none of them actually have an extra room. We did have a small fridge and a microwave, which allowed us to have breakfast in the room once I bought provisions. The building itself is beautiful, it struck me as being fairly new. The rooms were also clean and well-appointed, no complaints there. Service was outstanding; everyone that helped us did so with a smile.

Note - this hotel does not serve a free continental breakfast, but they do have a restaurant and bar available. We did not expect the free breakfast, so we were not disappointed. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and it was quite good. I think our room costs were a bit pricey but we were also there what is arguably the busiest week of the season (July 4) so I believe that is the reason.

We did all we could see in SD and its so far from home I don't know that we would come back, but if we did, we would certainly consider staying here again.

Room Tip: We did hear noise above us; ask for a room on the 4th floor if possible.

Beautiful hotel. Huge rooms with a sitting area. The hotel is in a newer area with only 1 restaurant within walking distance. Quaker Steak and Lube. The hotel was a little confusing to get to. There was a very nice pool and fitness center. They do have a breakfast buffet for $10.00 but we did not go to it. The hotel and rooms were very clean. We would highly recommend this place.

We stayed here during our trip to South Dakota. We brought our 9 mo old baby that just learned how to crawl. With all of those space, she can crawl freely. There was a nice mini kitchenette area with a small microwave and fridge. That was really helpful for baby meal and milk.

The front desk was really really helpful and nice. The check in process was very quick and painless.

However, we had a little difficulty when we try to locate the hotel in our car GPS.

I really recommend this hotel if you are visiting SD !

This hotel is about 2 years old and very nicely appointed. The safe was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is right off of I90 but you hear very little of the Interstate noise or noise from any of the adjoining rooms. Be aware they do not serve a continental breakfast but their is a restaurant on-site as well as some close by. Should we ever visit the area again we will definitely stay at this location. Also, the location is so new it won't appear on your GPS where it is located. Give them a call and they will get you right to them.

We stayed at the Cambira in Rapid CIty in early June when we were visiting South Dakota to see the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Spearfish Canyon, and Sioux Falls. Overall we were impressed with the hotel and found it be among the best in Rapid City.

We booked the hotel through the Choice Hotels website and the booking process were relatively painless. I was able to book the room in about 15 minutes. Unfortunately, since Rapid City lacks any true 4 and 5 star hotels, the price of the Cambria was relatively high for a 3 star hotel at $185-200/night. We booked a regular king suite.

The hotel staff was very polite and arranged the complimentary shuttle to pick us from the airport. Thankfully the shuttle arrived on-time because when we got in there was a large thunderstorm and heavy rains. The driver was extremely polite and even let us borrow an umbrella, a very nice touch since we had packed our umbrella in our suitcase.

Check-in:

The check-in process was very quick and Shelia and Aaron were very friendly and gave us a very warm welcome to Rapid City. We got room 207. A nice feature of the hotel was that they small store where you could purchase snacks and toiletries. All of the front desk staff including Shelia, Aaron, Derek, and Nick.

The Room:

The room was very nicely decorated with a large bathroom. Unfortunately, the rest of the room was a little small and the area in-front of the TV was stuffed with too much furniture. The room with the bed was a little tight and you had to be careful at night. The room came with two LG flat-pannel TVs and both had excellent picture quality with plenty of HD programming. The AC was very powerful and the room could get very cold even with the thermostat turned up to 76 degrees. There was a nice little kitchenette area with a small microwave and fridge, which was nice because we were able to store perishable items and have breakfast in the room. The coffee maker was terrible and it took nearly 30 minutes to heat up 2 cups of water for tea. I ended up buying a Sunbeam electric kettle at the local Target for $12, which was much better. Another nice touch is that a complimentary copy of USA Today is left by your room door every morning.

The Restaurant:

The restaurant area was very nicely decorated, they have a coffee shop and a cozy area by the TV in the lobby. The restaurant itself has about 10 tables and the menu is a little short on variety. There was only one vegetarian item and just a few entree choices. The staff were very accommodating and the sauteed chicken I had with broccoli and carrots was excellent. The breakfast buffet is a little better than the standard free breakfast buffet you see at some hotels, but it wasn't worth $10/person, especially when there are a lot of good breakfast places nearby.

The Hotel Shuttle:

Cambria Suites and the Hilton Garden Inn, I believe are the only two hotels that provide a complimentary shuttle service throughout Rapid City. Most of the other hotels only have a limited shuttle service that will take you anywhere within 5 miles. The complimentary shuttle service was one the best features of the Cambria. You can use the shuttle to go practically anywhere in Rapid City, such as downtown to the restaurants, the airport, or for local grocery trips to Target or Walmart. The hotel has 2-3 shuttles, one is a newer Chrysler minivan and the other is shuttle bus they primarily use for airport trips. The hotel allows you to reserve the shuttle, but for the most part the shuttle is free except for early mornings and in the early evenings.

The Checkout process:

The checkout process was very quick and we were on our way in less than 5 minutes. Unfortunately, this hotel doesn't have a luggage scale, so if you're flying make sure to bring a portable luggage scale with you to avoid surprises at the airport.

Other Comments:

-It's nice that the hotel has an on-site laundry machine. It can be a little expensive and the machine only takes quarters, but the front desk gladly converts dollars into quarters when you need them. However, the machine can take a long time and the room isn't very spacious. There is only one washer and one dryer, so it's best to do your laundry in the middle of the day or early afternoon. You can get laundry detergent from the small store in the hotel lobby

-The hotel industry in general is probably one of the most eco-friendly industries across the US, so it was surprising that a large hotel, like the Cambria doesn't have a recycling program at all. When I asked the front desk, the desk clerk said that only the restaurant has a recycling bin and the hotel recycles cardboard on a large scale, but she could take a few items like water bottles for recycling. While I appreciate the staff being nice, I wish that the Cambria would have a recycling bin in the lobby for the guests. If you are concerned about the environment, the local Target accepts plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and plastic bags for recycling.

-Most of the tourist attractions like Mount Rushmore, the Black Hills, Spearfish Canyon, and Bear County are about 1-2 hours away. Though the hotel recommended Gray Line tours, we used Affordable Adventures tours and they were very good and picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel.

My family with three kids (13, 11, and 8 years olds) stayed at Cambria Suites for four nights for Black Hill vacation.

1. The location is very convenient (right next to highway) for dining, shopping, and touring.
2. We stayed at 2 queen beds with sofa bed suite, and it was really clean and perfect for 5 people.
3. The hotel staff is very kind and helpful.
4. My kids loved to swim in the pool. The pool is really clean and safe for kids.
5. guest laundry is very convenient.
