We had a great stay in March of 2017. I booked this hotel for a state/national park visit. From here we easily were able to do day trips to Badlands, Devils Tower, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood, & Custer State Park. Hotel was very nice, breakfast was a great added bonus. It's also directly beside the Cabelas which was nice when we...

This room was an incredible value being the off season. Room comes with a full kitchenete, so if you were staying longer you had that option. Very happy with the room. Clean. roomy. Comfy...

We often stay here before we need to get on a plane out of Rapid City or when we come in late and don't want to drive home at night. Good value, new place, decent breakfast (nothing fancy but will do in a pinch) big rooms. Haven't found much not to like... they need ice machines on the floors...that's the...

This hotel was the best one we stayed at on our vacation. The staff members where friendly, the pool was refreshing, the area was nice, they even had everything we would need in the room without having to ask (even a sink plug for the kitchenette) The ONLY setback is its a bit confusing to get to.

Stayed here in the winter, rooms were nice, staff was great. Shuttle to the airport was easy. Next to Cabelas, and a sister hotel. Hotels are really the only thing in the area. A couple miles down the street from Rushmore Mall, and the edge of town. Only drawback was the plowing of the driveway, parking lot. Cabelas was dry,...

The room was very clean and spacious and included a kitchenette with range, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Dishes, cookware, and silverware are also furnished. My...

Its often times very stressful being stranded in a foreign city during inclement weather. It is wonderful to hear that we were able to meet your needs during a somewhat difficult time. Happy New Year and safe travels.

Although this hotel was a bit out of the way, it was only about 10 minutes from downtown. The clerks were friendly and helpful, the accomodations comfortable and very clean. Not fancy, but with a modern vibe. Freight-size elevators make it easy for families or groups. Very quiet room. Would stay again and would recommend. Our stay was just an...
