Beautiful upon walking into the hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The bathroom however had a lot of mold. My only other complaint is there was no ice machine on our floor and the ones on the floor above and below ours were broke. I would stay here again though.

We were very happy with Hi Rushmore Plaza - this was a family vacation to the Black Hills and choose this hotel mainly due to the price, but we were very happy. It was really nice, clean, free breakfast for kids with an affordable nice breakfast buffet and the kids enjoyed the pool. We loved to proximity to downtown with...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Holiday Inn for 4 nights during the Sturgis rally. We ride up from the Denver area every year to attend the rally. This stay was our 4th year at this hotel.

The hotel was clean and pretty. Lounge is spacious with waterfall and big screen TV. Pool is great ( too many kids in out when we went) but very clean and nice area. The rooms are large and beds are comfortable. People were friendly and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was all friendly and prompt. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Everything was very clean. The only complaint I could make is spotty wifi. Other than that, a completely lovely stay.

Once you get inside it is a very nice hotel. The outside is not particularly inviting, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, and Rapid City is a nice little town. The hotel is close to a large beautiful park and walking trail along the river, which I enjoyed early in he morning. You are also within walking distance...

The hotel itself had a bad smell in the elevators. There are only 2 elevators. My bed had a piece of hair in it. I always hate that. I don't know if it was just not clean or debris from the maid. The area itself is convenient so hotel is ok.

Very nice, clean, pleasant place to stay. Good size room for a family of 5. Pool hours are great open till midnight. Breakfast was amazing and kids just loved the place. So also very kid friendly. Also a walk away from a cute strip of shopping and splash pad play area. We enjoyed it very much.

This is a very nice, comfortable, clean hotel. Breakfast is not included, but there is an on-site restaurant as well as a small convenience store available 24-hours. The room was clean and odor free, and though the bathroom was small, it was fine for an overnight stay.
