This hotel is convenient to Ellsworth AFB, Rapid City, and the local tourist attractions (Rushmore, Keystone, Hill City, etc.) The room rates are competitive. The exercise room was very nice...smaller in person than the webpage made it look but the equipment was very nice and well-maintained. I enjoyed my workout there each day.
We reserved a king bed with in-room spa. Upon arrival, we were told that only handicap accessible rooms had a spa tub. We asked to change rooms because of the lack of counter space and the water mess handicap showers make. Fortunately we do not need a handicap room. After a few minutes wait and discussion, it became clear we would not change rooms because it just wasn't worth the hassle for only two nights. The webpage should make it clear that spa rooms are only handicap accessible, it would have made a difference in our room selection.
The room came with a pillow-top king size bed and a spa tub. The bed was OK but not great. When I awoke in the morning, my back hurt. The pillows were very small. The spa tub (whirlpool) was ineffective. It was plenty big but the whirlpool action was non-existent. On the second day there, we did not receive floor mats for the tub and shower and only one towel per person (we had specifically asked for extra towels for the duration of our stay).
Continental breakfast was served each morning with the usual breakfast items (yogurt, cereal, muffins, etc.) After breakfast the first day, we noticed wrappers for egg muffins in one of the garbage cans. I asked the server about them and she told me they did not put them out for breakfast because everyone would want one and they would run out. Further, she told me that if I wanted one, all I had to do was ask her and she would get me one.
