Reviewed 17 September 2012

We stayed at this hotel for the last several years while attending the annual Dakota Polka Festival each September. The rooms are very clean. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning. There was a variety of food choices. We enjoyed having breakfast every morning with our friends in the spacious dining area. The Staff was very friendly and helpful with our travelling questions. The hotel was not far from one of the shopping malls we went to and also is within walking distance of a few restaurants.

We arrived in Rapid City late evening (10.30 pm) and it was a short drive to this hotel. The rooms were very good, spacious, clean, eqipped with a fridge and plenty of towels etc. The breakfast room was adjacent to the reception and was clean and tidy. The breakfast was very sufficient, good selection of cereals, cakes and buns, fresh bread, juice, waffles, eggs, yoghurt, fresh fruit and tea and coffee, all of which was replaced very quickly with new supplies. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. The pool area was clean and tidy, although we didn't have time for a swim! There was a BBQ at the side of the pool which we used one night, nice change to restaurant meals. If in the area again we would definately staff here - good value for money.

Despite Americans Best has not ever been good for me. This time I am very satisfied. Helpful staff who suggested us a great place to eat, good breakfast and very very handy. It is just outside the motorway and the exit after Mt Rushmore. Rapid City is a nice place for an evening walk.

Room was very nice, beds were comfortable and having the microwave & fridge was very nice with having a 7 year old along. The staff were all very nice and friendly and took the time to visit with my son and answer any questions. The pool was well maintained, as well as the hot tub. The breakfast was quite good. We enjoyed our time here.

On a tour to the Badlands and Mt. Rushmore, we stayed here 4 nights. The room was acceptable except that the sink is outside the rest of the bathroom between the bathroom door and the outside door -- very inconvenient and uncomfortable. The room itself seemed clean and adequate. We had difficulty getting coffee left for us by the staff. The breakfast room is certainly inadequate for a group the size of ours. I partly blame the tour company for that. The pool was nice, but I only got to use it once due to our busy schedule.

We chose this motel for location, hot tub and swimming pool. The room had two double beds. Both beds had a worn side, so neither was comfortable for a couple. The hot tub was unimpressive. After we were out touring all day, the hot tub was sooo disappointing. Needs proper treatment for foam. The pool was nice.
Over all NOT a good value for the cost.
