My daughter, her husband, my wife, and I traveled to Rapid City to enjoy Black Friday shopping. We needed a place to stay - both so we could have a place to sleep and as a hub for napping between shopping, meeting up with each other,, etc. We didn't need much from the room....a couple of comfortable beds, a shower,...

My girl and I have been travelling the USA for some time now. Out of 23 states we have stayed in a bunch of different hotels. By far this is the best one, staff, cleanliness, services, breakfast, and coffee 24/7. The price of their rooms was right on target when we have paid more at other location for less. Other... More

I found the Foothills Inn on Tripadvisor and could not believe its excellent rates. I read several more positive reviews and decided to take a chance. The place is great. For a family traveling on a budget to Mount Rushmore this would be an ideal choice. The rooms are a bit dated but do you really need style when touring... More

I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat! The staff were excellent and the rooms were generously large and very clean. The breakfast could use a little work and the hot water was a little intermittent, but all in all, it was a really nice stay and very close to Mt. Rushmore.

I reserved this on-line and it was an incredible $44.00 and the hotel photos looked nice so I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised upon check-in. The desk clerk was friendly and answered our questions on dining options. The room was slightly dated but the beds were comfy, the room was clean, odor-free, flat screen TV and a nice... More

Overall, our two night stay was enjoyable. Comfortable bed; woke up refreshed. Not as convenient to Mount Rushmore as I thought it might be. Breakfast and breakfast area are not very inviting. They offer Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, but only if you ask for one. No elevator. The morning staff, Whisper, was very helpful in providing directions to Mount Rushmore... More

We stayed three nights at this property as we were exploring various sites in the Rapid City area. The room was a bit old and tired, but nice nonetheless. Depending on the appliance you may need to unplug something to use it...but that's a small inconvenience. Breakfast had the typical cereals, muffins, bagels etc. as well as your choice of... More

We stayed here when we took a trip to South Dakota. The room was very nice, good bed, clean and nice bath. We did not care for the breakfast,so walked next door to Perkins for breakfast. Would stay here again if in the area,

This was a welcoming, nice place. Our room was spacious and our bed comfortable. The room had a fridge and microwave. Nicely located to access the wonders of the Black Hills. It was also very reasonable priced for our two night stay in Oct. of 2016.

The hotel is in a great location and our room was lovely. On our 4 week road trip we stayed in 15 hotels and this was our favourite. The room was really light and spacious, beautifully furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Fantastic value for a really lovely, quality hotel with a great pool.
