Exceptionally clean rooms. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast items. We were checking out early to make a 6:30 am flight. They opened breakfast early (before 5 am) just for us. Easy to find. One of the best prices in the area at the time. We plan on returning in September and will definitely book here again.

Breakfast was pretty dankity dank. Had the biscuits and gravy and some waffles which was bomb diggity. The women who did the breakfast the morning of the 29th of July 2016 were super nice and thoughtful as well as helpful. Apple juice was okay though coffee was hot like a hot potato

Easy access to Interstate 90. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was very good. Waffles, biscuits and gravy, cereal, rolls, donuts, yogurt with choice of fruit, etc. Hair dryer, microwave, refrigerator. Staff was very helpful. For my 92 yr old mother it was wonderful to have an elevator. Enjoyed the stay and would stay again.

The staff was wonderful as we had mistakenly been booked in a smoking room and my son has asthma so we could not stay there. They moved us to a business suite and got us a roll away bed...did everything they could to help us out...thank you! The breakfast was good and the room was clean...very happy with the hotel...

Keep in mind that staying in Rapid City is expensive due to its proximity to Mount Rushmore. This is an older hotel, and not kept in the best condition. The breakfast was basic, rooms were not clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. They serve road and construction workers, so long term budget stay seems to be the norm. There...
