The Grand Gateway Hotel was recommended to us from another Military Reunion Group. We visited doing a site visit looking for the best place for our military reunion. We found it at the Grand Gateway. Bob Hodet, Director of Sales, could not have done enough for us in helping us make our visit eventful and enlightening. We felt it was the best location we could find to hold our reunion.. The rooms were very nice, bed comfortable, and it was a very homey atmosphere. The staff was helpful and made us feel at home. Our members should be very happy with this choice of reunion site.. We signed the contract and will have our reunion in September 2013.

Both myself and my wife stayed here in early October. The hotel is conviently located just south of I-90 and close to a LOT of conviences, Target, Walmart, shopping center, restaurants. The hotel lobby is very spacious with plenty of comfortable, inviting seating. Although the hotel is close to I-90, our third floor room was very quiet. Our room was nice and large with a spacious bathroom. Everything was very clean and maintained. There is a Perkins restaurant attached to the hotel. The bar was very nice with good service. If you are there for happy hour, you can expect discounted drinks, popcorn, peanuts, and a hot snack, bar-b-que beef sandwich when we were there. Good value.

The hotel is in a good location. Tons of restaurants nearby. Also, there is a Walmart within two minutes walk. However, the rooms are not that great as advertised in the website. Old decor and not much of light in the room. The front desk staffs are not very courteous.
Comments:
1. There is a Perkins within the property which is open 24 hours. This is great, specially if you are travelling odd hours.
2. If you are visitng Mt Rushmore area, better avoid this place. You will be stuck in the downtown traffic for quite long time. I would recommend to stay in Hill City or Keystone area.

Everything about the Grand Gateway Hotel in Rapid City, SD was excellent, from making the reservations, to their welcome, and businesslike way of registration, keeping the rooms clean, and the meals we were served for the 58th Fighter Association reunion were the best we have had at such an affair.
Our thanks go oiut to Chef Marlow Quilt, Managers and Hosts Bob and Karen Hodet, Banquet Captain Mike Vaughn, Bar Manager Brad, and the whole kitchen staff. The food was delicious, and served with style. Their care and concern for us as guests of the hotel was excellent,and we are very appreciative of that. Henry and Vonnie Meyer

Room Tip: All rooms we saw would be good for travelers.
