MainStay Suites Rapid City
Ranked #20 of 48 Hotels in Rapid City
Reviewed 22 September 2013

At $89.00 per night, the Mainstay Suites in Rapid City, SD is a real bargain. Suites are relatively spacious, clean and comfortable with kitchen amenities and coffee makers. Desk staff are extremely courteous, warm, friendly and helpful in providing information about local attractions. The property is relatively new but close by to many restaurants, shopping venues and downtown Rapid City with its walk of the presidents. A full buffet breakfast with hot and cold foods is provided in a very comfortable area of the hotel. A heated pool, free wifi, business center and airport transportation are also provided.
If I found myself in Rapid City, I'd stay at the Mainstay Suites again.

Room Tip: The facility is completely handicapped accessible.

To start with I was traveling along to see Mount Rushmore on my 80th Birthday. From the time the shuttle picked my up to the time it took me back to the airport. It was a wonderful stay, The Manager ,I think his name was Paul, had as birthday card and small cake. Could not ask for better service or rooms. Everything so clean and well keept. Shuttle drivers Sean and Lou so knowageable about area and shared valueable info. The breakfasts are very good too.
There is not enough space nor words to say enough good thing about my stay.Loretta-California

Room Tip: I do not think there is a bad room

Stayed on the weekend of 9/13/2013. Traveled with family from MN.

Pros: Very clean room. Beds are comfortable. Staff was nice at check-in and check-out. Having a mini-kitchen in our room with a full-sized fridge was amazing! Location of the hotel was spacious (our family does not like busy-areas when traveling). Though located slightly further away from the strip of other hotels, major stores were still very closely accessible (Target, Walmart, Dollar Store, restaurants, etc).

Cons: Queen suite with pullout couch is very tiny. Blinds are tough to pull back and forth. There are 4 floors and the elevator moves super slow (much faster to take the stairs, but tough to do if you have heavy luggage). Pool needs more upgrading (even though they just opened this yr). Need jacuzzi in pool area. Breakfast selection and breakfast room-size needs more work (no meat and limited fruit selection).

Overall, for the rate that we paid, we'd definitely stay here again!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel feels like a home with the in room kitchens. The rooms and the hotel were very clean and well kept. They had a very nice breakfast. I will use this hotel the next time I am in town.

Would give it Excellent as far as room goes,it's new.
Constant fan was a plus for air movement and to cover night noise!
Good bed, TV hd flat panel but only analog shows.

Reasons for only very good are:
Weak Wifi, keeps kicking you off.
No sheer drapes on window.
Thin ceiling and walls, noise!
Parking mostly in back, steps, no ramps.
Weak menu for breakfast.

The room was very clean and nice with many amenities. I was told the hotel had only been open 3 months. The problem is that it was hard to get a good night sleep, despite the comfort because of the noise and light in the room. The drapes fo not block out the outside light so it was "twilight" in the room all night long. The room was very noisy from freeway noise, the vent in bathroom that runs all night long and is not controlled in the room, the air conditioner and the refrigerator cycling on and off all night. The room was on the 4th floor facing east. The price was reasonable considering the location near many tourist sites and the time of year.

Room Tip: Due to the location, it is probably not possible to get a room without freeway or truck noise, but y...
