We arrived at the airport and the complimentary shuttle was there waiting for us. The friendly driver took us to the hotel. We checked in and went to our room which was very clean with sparkling white linens. The chair in the room seemed worn and the windows were a bit cloudy on the outside. Because the weather was cool and misty, we decided to eat in the hotel's restaurant where we had a delicious dinner. The restaurant staff and the girls at the desk were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in the heart of the downtown area and there were many shops closeby as well as banks and ATM machines. I highly recommend the Adoba.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your newly renovated room and your dining experience in our Enigma Restaurant. We appreciate your kind words about our friendly and helpful staff. We strive to make our guests feel like part of our family, and love hearing from those who enjoy our South Dakota hospitality!

Your comments are important to us, as they reflect using our family of services, from our complimentary shuttle, dining experience, ATM convenience and downtown location. We try not only to be an artistic "eco" hotel, but very functional. Thank you!

Upon check in we were upgraded to the 9th floor which a private floor. The room was modern and very clean. We ordered room service for Dinner. I had the Salmon and my husband the Chicken. It was a very good meal.

We enjoyed the free breakfast the next morning which was adaquate. The staff was all very kiind

The only I had was a tour bus was parked in front on the hotel as we were trying to exist. We had to walk through the construction zone.

We try to upgrade everyone that books directly on our website. It is very smart to book directly with hotels, as hotels will appreciate the business without paying all the third party fees. It is the least a very nice hotel should do. I'm glad you've enjoyed our cuisine. Part of being "eco" is not only about taking care of the environment that people live in, but to provide healthy eating options. We buy organic as much as possible, and it reflects in the great taste and quality we try to achieve.

Please forgive us for the inconvenience of the construction under the porte-cochere, but we are creating an interactive area with fire pits for guest enjoyment. We are trying to be the favorite hotel for people who value their time after work.

From the time the shuttle picked us up at the airport until the day we left, we were impressed. We arrived late on the 16th and we were picked up promptly. It had been a long, complicated flight and we mentioned to the driver (very nice young lady) that we had not had time to eat. She offered to stop at Arbys so we could grab a sandwich and we did appreciate that. The shuttle took us back to the airport the next day so we could pick up our rental car. Again, a very nice gentleman. Our room was clean and updated and the maids were very friendly. We enjoyed the free breakfast. We appreciated the courteous service. The room was a bit noisy, but it really didn't bother us. The location is great. Right downtown Rapid City. It is also centrally located to the Badlands and the Black Hills. We would stay at this hotel again.

It really makes me happy that you experienced what we try so hard to achieve ... great service! We think of ourselves like a football team where we pass service from one person to another, and it is great that we can have a touchdown with a comment like yours. I will pass your gratitude on to Kristina and Will. I'm sure it will boost their morale, as they are such great people to work with. We are glad you enjoyed our city and hope you will be back.

We stopped here to ask directions and were originally not going to stay here as we thought the price was a little high. It turned out we were talking to the manager who was so incredibly helpful with directions, places to go in the area, the right time to go. He was being our personal travel agent. We decided to stay because he was so nice. The rooms are each uniquely decorated and I believe the hotel was featured on HGTV. Little did we know that the price included a fantastic breakfast buffet complete with a personal chef to cook your breakfast the way you wanted it! We concluded that with the breakfast included the price was well worth the extra money!

Adoba has two strengths--its location and staff. From the hotel, you can walk Rapid City's downtown area. And the people in the hotel are most informative. You must talk to Dave before you head out to explore.

Our room was small and sparsely furnished. Having only 2 small bureau drawers forced us to live out of our suitcases. We never felt settled in. Outside, the traffic and motorcycles were very loud; not conducive to sleeping. As the tours arrived, Housekeeping could not keep up with the demand. That was a pain. After a day of touring, we really did not want to sit in the lobby until our room had been made up.

Currently, the second floor is under renovation, and the landscaping is also ongoing. Just two more in conveniences.

Inside Rapid City itself there are very few hotels. You might be better staying outside the city and driving in. We wish Adoba well, but it has a long way to go to get to the top ..

Room Tip: Keep away from Main Street

This is an old hotel but the large room was completely refurbished with modern decor, including a (knock off?) Saarinen Womb Chair. Nice view, decent restaurant, good towels and bed. Good internet connection. Located in the center of town, but with decent parking. Would definitely stay here again when en route.

Thank you for the great review. We look forward to hosting you again....To set the record straight, we did not copy the Saarinen Womb Chair. Zeljka and Sacha designed the chair. They drew the blue print from scratch and had them made for us. Our designers are young, innovative and stayed functional. They wanted to make the first comfortable sofa ever in a hotel, so they designed one. It has been copied by many since.....
