We were driving through South Dakota on our way home from Colorado. We ended up in the Mt Rushmore/Rapid City area at 8-9PM and needed a place to stay with our two children. What we didnt realize when we decided to drive through South Dakota was that it was Sturgis week. Most hotels had jacked up their rates and some didnt have rooms available. We were able to find the Grand Gateway Hotel online and they had a fair price, but gave us even a slightly better price when we asked what their rates were.
The hotel was clean and quiet, even with it being full of bikers. Heard a little road noise, but on a typical day when there aren't 10s of thousands of bikes around it probably would be very quiet. Pool was great, 5 year old loved the slide!! Would stay here again if driving through.More
