Ok it's a hotel right? But then it is your personal experience that sets each one apart. With that said Rushmore Holiday Inn Plaza isn't what you pay for. 2-bed queens, pullout couch and two TVS not 12 feet apart were nice and comfortable. The bathroom, for the size of the room was tiny. Door in the way, showerhead non... More

A very large hotel located in sort of the industrial end of town. Eight floors of rooms around an eight story atrium. Rooms were very nice and well appointed. Dining was in an inhouse restaurant that seem to not want the business. Other dining would require a long,long walk through the industrial section to get to restaurants there. Or you... More

We haven't stayed at the Holiday Inn Rushmore Plaza for a long time and we forgot how nice it was. We reserved a 2 room suite for a reasonable price and it was better than we expected.

This is a really nice hotel for a few nights in Rapid City (do visit the Badlands and the tourist trap with the faces of the past presidents, yes, visit that too, even if you do it ironically).

We ate at the bar at this Holiday Inn last night, and were surprised by the high quality of the good. We each had the bacon-wrapped shrimp, which was yummy (sauces and stuffing were involved). I had a green salad with cranberries and nuts, which was also fabulous. My husband had the humus appetizer, which came with an amazing assortment... More

Great location right next to Rushmore Plaza, housing wonderful in-house event space. Beautiful atrium with great light, and a waterfall. The rooms are spacious allowing room to move, work, and sleep comfortably. The bar had great beer selection of both Local brewery and well-known craft beers. This location is a quick walk to Main Street Square that offers great seating... More

Excellent hotel with clean, comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, including the omelets made to order. The atrium is very nicely decorated with the sound of water falling from several stories above. Staff was helpful and friendly. The only negative thing was the dinner provided as part of our tour. From the quality of the breakfast, expected a better... More

Excellent hotel with large, comfortable and clean rooms. The staff was very friendly: for some reason something had gone wrong with the reservation of our (2) rooms, but they fixed it immediately and even offered us a voucher for free breakfast.
