We've always enjoyed staying at the Ramkota in Aberdeen. The beds are comfortable. The decor is pleasant & updated. There are plenty of outlets for recharging our cell phones on their new lamps. It was a pleasant experience once again.

I booked this place for the indoor pool for my son for our vacation stay because it was child friendly. If it wasn't for the pool, which the bottom on the pool hurt our feet because the coating was sharp, I would've checked out the same night. Our hotel room floor was dirty and damp leaving our socks dark and...

Dear Stacey C. Thank-you so much for taking the time to write a review. I want to convey my deepest regrets regarding the stay you had.

Dear rvdad1, I want to apologize that your room leaked. We had an incredible storm roll through and it caused significant damage to a section of the roof which I am glad we were able to immediately repair in light of day.

Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen SD is a clean and friendly place to stay with good continental breakfast. The only negative is that they don't have an elevator so if you don't want to carry your suitcases and items to the second floor then you need to ask to stay on ground level.

Very comfortable, free breakfast, optional restaurant in the same building as the hotel. I stay at Ramkota for all my business trips. I wish that they had better internet. Seems like when everyone gets back to the hotel after work it slows completely down. I will keep staying here for the good service and cleanness of the hotel.

We stayed at the Ramkota for 2 nights for my sister-in-laws funeral. I've never felt so taken care of while eating a "free continental breakfast" before. Izzy McKittrick was so helpful and friendly.
