Entrance was dirty, but inside was very nice, free cookies, attached water park, bar and restaurant. Pet friendly, free drink tickets at the bar, close to the rest of Rapid City. Close to freeways, plenty of parking, room was large and very well appointed. Great breakfast and very helpful staff.

Stopped on a cross country journey and this may be my favorite La Quinta yet! Check in was friendly and fast; we even got a room upgrade! Our travelling pet companion even got his own welcome pack with baggies and milk bones. Staff was kind enough to give us a room adjacent to the DOG PARK! We travel and stay...

I was so impressed with this hotel!! We we're doing some work to our house and couldn't stay there and needed somewhere we could take the dogs. We couldn't believe they didn't charge anything for the dogs. And they were so dog-friendly!!! They had a nice dog yard outside for them to go and a path to walk. My dog...

We found the hotel to be well located and very welcoming to us and our dog who was traveling with us. They have a great off leash fenced area that makes it a dream to accommodate pets which is clean and right next to the building. It is concrete, astro turf and gravel so there was no mud to deal...

Stayed in the king suite #301. This place is next to a water park. Kids running up and down the hallway until 1030 1100 pm. Had I known this I would've stayed somewhere else. O, and the parking is horrible. Won't stay there again..

We do our best to have this advertised on all third party sites including our brand site so all guests are aware and can chose to take advantage of this amenity. Thank you for staying with us and...

This hotel is in the middle of a complex of hotels all surrounding a water park. We always overnight here primarily because they are extremely dog-friendly. The hotel is new and the furnishings are top notch. We haven't used the water park. The staff is friendly. We use the LaQuinta app on our phone to book and that makes it...

I had been driving a long time and was tired and ready to relax. I had stayed at a La Quinta last summer and had a good experience so I chose to stay at another. I was very satisfied with the exception of breakfast. It was okay, but the one I had stayed at before was much better...guess it depends...

Corrina & Tamera were working hard to keep the breakfast fully stocked. It was a busy time for a Monday morning but it was during spring break. In the time we waited for the waffle machine, they were out stocking the breakfast bar at least 5 times.
