I'll stay there again. Rather than complain because I just did the survey and I'm tired of it now. Just stay yourself and figure out your own likes and dislikes. It's stay worthy, just don't go when there is an event in town, particularly at the hotel that you are staying at.

The hotel is cool! Old west feel, ghost stories and great roof-top bar (inside & out - I am told only open in warmer weather months). My room, at least, was smaller than I would expect from a business hotel. For example there was no desk and little space in the bathroom. They carpet in my room was worn, the...

Thank you for your feedback on the Hotel Alex Johnson. This feedback helps us see what we are doing right and where we can improve. As a historic facility, the rooms are all completely different configurations, sizes, and vary in features. Sometimes that's the fun part of visiting a Curio is knowing there's nothing else like it.

A renovated hotel in the middle of downtown. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms and beds. Within a few blocks of any downtown activities. And they worked with me to facilitate parking and luggage storage for a week while I was off on a bicycle tour.

We rented a junior suite and it was a nice big room. Comfortable bed and clean, new bathroom. Not sure if the furniture will be replaced some of it seemed a little worn. We were there for the grand reopening of the hotel and it seemed to be a very festive affair for all employees. Friendly staff. Great rooftop bar...

This is a great hotel to stay at when in rapid city. It has been recently remodeled. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The staff was very nice and helpful. The location is great. Many stores and restaurants within walking distance as well as a park. Also, check out the rooftop bar/restaurant for a fantastic view.

This newly renovated hotel in downtown Rapid City was a lovely, comfortable place to stay. Not your typical hotel, full of history with many special touches-from gorgeous state of the art showers to antique glass doorknobs. Each and every employee was helpful, courteous, and friendly. Fabulous rooftop fire pit and restaurant/bar was a great place to enjoy the evening. Ideally...
